Dark Malta Festival, which is being organised by Hades Events, sees five live acts and two DJs coming together in what promises to be the first largescale event of this genre to take place locally. Headlining together with Diary of Dreams is gothic-industrial band Gothminister. With its latest album The Other Side released, rather appropriately, last October on Friday 13, the band is one of the biggest forces on the international gothic scene,
Joining the lineup is Martyrium, perennial metal favorites and harbingers of a strong dose of black metal. The band is known for its trademark air of brutality that stands out on the local underground scene. Austrian rock/cabaret quintet Lolita Complex, a unique mixture of goth, rock and metal blended with Japanese visual key elements are one of the other acts. The self-described ‘bizarre collection of curios’ released their latest album, The Greatest Show on Earth, in 2015.
Maltese symphonic metal band Rising Sunset needs no introduction. The band emerged on the scene back in 2001 and, since then, has pushed boundaries with every new album. Solo black metal act Saħħar will be bringing to the festival his particular brand of concept works, while DJ Hades and Missy Malice will be on deck duty.
