Of course, in our special anniversary best-of bill the DEATHSTARS’ death glam metal couldn’t be missing, as they have already given two magnificent performances at SUMMER BREEZE. A third fireworks display of hits – coinciding with the release of their new best-of album ‘The Greatest Hits On Earth’ – will follow in August 2012. Take some hard, cold, sterile guitar sounds a la Rammstein or The Kovenant, lay some synths and other electronic elements on top, mix them with some dark death metal vocals, and you get their extreme, danceable sound. The fact that the Swedes were exclusive support to Rammstein on their 2011 “Made in Germany” tour proves that the mix works and is popular. Not every band on earth can claim this kind of honour for themselves.
