Hi Friends,

We are extremely happy, that for KEEP IT TRUE 2020 we can announce something that we have never done before. We will dedicate the festival 2020 to the greatest and most cult underground metal band ever: CIRITH UNGOL. They will exclusively headline both days, with completely different setlists. Friday they will be playing a completely secret setlist. Saturday they will be joined by original bassist Flint and play the first three albums plus rare tracks! Reuniting UNGOL was such an amazing part of all our lives and we want to celebrate that as long as it is possible. There are few, who deserve such a dedication, UNGOL deserves it most!!

After we tried so many years, finally we were able to book THE Japanese Metal Legend. LOUDNESS will perform an exclusive 80s setlist dedicated to the albums from "The Birthday Eve" till "Hurricane Eyes". They will be the absolute coheadliner with a longer than usual playing time and will play all their early hits. Makes us so happy!!

We are proud to present an exclusive Old School Show by Bay Area Thrash Masters HEATHEN. Their first two albums "Breaking The Silence" and "Victims Of Deception" are among the top Bay Area Thrash classics and the band is a monster live. After so many years, we present them back on stage!

Since their first show at KIT, American Epic Metallers VISIGOTH grew so much in popularity and their last album was the best in 2018. Welcome to a triumphant return.

Also we are very happy to see the return of the mighty METALUCIFER. Gezol and his legions will deliver fistraising metal hymns again.

We are also proud to have the amazing SABBAT from Japan for the first time at KIT. For us, they will perform a very special set of their 80s songs.

REALM are a legendary US Metal/Speed Metal band that released two killer albums but never made it over to Europe. We are happy that we could finally get this band over in their original line up.

No KIT without NWoBHM. After being part of our unique NWoBHM Anniversary show, TRESPASS will now play in full glory a special set with all their 80s hits.

One of the best newcomers in the Speed Metal genre comes from Germany. VULTURE deliver Speed Metal like no one else does nowadays. Sharp Riffs and shrieking vocals are the basis for this Underground Metal inferno!!

We are proud, that we can present the very first show of GENOCIDE NIPPON outside of Japan. They are a real cult band and maybe not known to many, but they have dedicated followers and its such an honor to host their very first show in Europe!!

KEEP IT TRUE XXIII

Hi Friends,

we are extremely happy to announce the next band for KEEP IT TRUE 2020

American band LEGEND is one of the last few real Cult bands, that has not played on our KIT stage yet. Their sensational album "From The Fjords" from 1979 has a "LEGENDary" status amongst most KIT fans. Unfortunately 1983 Singer/Guitarist Kevin Nugent died. Now, 40 years after its first release, "From The Fjords" will be OFFICIALLY released by Cult Rock Classics and the feedback to this rerelease is mindblowing. So we talked to the remaining two original members Fred Melillo (Bass) and Ray Frigon (Drums) and we will arrange a ONE OFF LEGEND show only for KIT 2020. There is no replacement for Kevin Nugent yet, but the band will start auditions very soon. If you feel you would be the right guy for the job, you can even apply to the band here: https://drumsinhisheart.weebly.com/the-search.html

Here is what drummer Ray has to say about it all:

The Search for a Legendary Guitarist

Ray Frigon a écrit :Well, based on things you can read on the Legend page, I'll cut to the chase here.

With the building interest of the reissue of Legend ~ From the Fjords, with Sonic Age Records and their newly created label, Cult Rock Classics, also comes interest in a reunion of the band for a live performance. Hard to believe but, here it is.

Fred and I had always felt, without Kevin, such a performance is just impossible because of the talent and stage presence Kevin had. Finding a guitarist with his ability, that can also sing in natural tones and relay the stories in the songs with the same ease he had; his personality, winging that 6/12 double neck into the exosphere at times? Seriously? Not possible. Impossible.

We just let the idea go. Fred and I would love to play together again. The task, though, to really honor the memory of our friend and bandmate seems beyond our capacity to meet.

As we have seen in life, "Never say, Never." The reissue is a reality. And now comes an invitation to perform at the Keep It True festival, in Konigshofen, Germany, on April 24, 2020. An hour set, to perform the album in it's entirety with a little stretching out. This is a one-time, reunion concert appearance for us.

We are so looking forward to that!!

I was able to book the next two bands for KEEP IT TRUE Festival and we will announce them one after the other within the next two weeks.

One is a reunion in original line up that will come as a pleasant surprise for many fans.

The other band sold over 3 million albums worldwide in their career, rarely played in Europe and will come to KIT with 4 out of 5 original members.

Both bookings made me really happy and proud, I hope you will think the same....so stay tuned

We are extremely happy to announce our big friday Co-Headliner for KEEP IT TRUE 2020

2020 marks the 30th anniversary of one of THE US Power Metal classics. We are talking about “Into The Mirror Black” by Seattle legends SANCTUARY. To celebrate this anniversary, the band will perform the whole album for the first time in their history as a world premiere at KEEP IT TRUE. The rest of the set will consist of the highlights of the debut album “Refuge Denied”. We also see this special show as a tribute to our longtime friend Warrel Dane, whom we lost almost two years ago. We are so looking forward to a set packed with only US Power Metal classics!

Hello friends,

We have some good news for our KEEP IT TRUE Warm Up Show in Dittigheim.

The billing was already complete, but we had the chance to book a band, that will release one of the best Epic Doom albums of the last years. We talk about CRYPT SERMON and their outstanding new album "The Ruins Of Fading Light". We are happy they are now part of this killer billing and we hope we could make you a nice surprise by booking them.

The presale is already completely sold out, but we kept 50 tickets for the doors. They will cost 10 Euro in cash. First come, First Serve!

After the bands have ended, there will be the usual Metal Disco with Thorsten MOR Hepp.

On this occasion, we will already be giving out the festival wristbands for the KIT Festival throughout the Warm Up Show (on presentation of the ticket, of course) to speed up entry on Friday. In addition, we are currently working on further measures to optimize the admission on Friday, but later there will be a separate newsletter.
[...]
That was fast. All 50 tickets are gone. Thank you so much for the amazing support. The Warm Up is now completely sold out and there won't be any tickets at the doors.
