In 2010 the Christmas Ball Festivals are heading for the German clubs again. In addition to the known stations, Berlin will join the tour for the first time. This year the tour starts on 26.12. at the Capitol Hannover. On 27.12. the festival trek will join their new Headliner in Cologne´s Theater am Tanzbrunnen, followed up by the Posthalle in Würzburg on 28.12., before on 29.12. the final Showdown in Berlin takes place at “Huxley´s Neue Welt”.
Showdown is almost a perfect prompt for the headlining act at the Christmas Ball Festivals 2010 in Cologne, Würzburg and Berlin: FIELDS OF THE NEPHILIM!

„Carl McCoy is god!!!“, these were the words of the inspired fan, who was given the opportunity to announce his heroes on-stage at the Amphi Festival 2009. Indeed the exceptional British band, lead by their majestic ceremonial master Carl McCoy, hasn´t lost the tiniest piece of fascination in over 25 years. Instead, like a precious wine, they evolved to a state of near perfection. Powerful, intense and full of magic, the well chosen concerts of the „NEPHS“ are more than ever inspiring experiences for eyes, ears and soul, which catch you from the first moment, taking you on a journey into their world.

Copied many times, but never quite reached the next band of the Christmas Ball 2010 remains unique as well: PROJECT PITCHFORK. Thus the hanseatic are always on spot when it comes to clothing philosophical themes into a powerful, danceable web of sounds. At times uncompromisingly straightforward, then again on a well chosen detour around the core, Peter Spilles and his crew are masters of a well-crafted symbiosis of driving electronic sounds, garnished with gritty industrial riffs.

Looking at LAIBACH, the third band in the bundle, words won´t suffice to describe their style. Apart from all conventions the slovenian artist collective wanders a path between post-industrial elements, EBM, the spirit of the 1980´s („Opus Dei“,„Alle gegen Alle“,„The Final Countdown“) and an enormous amount of courage to take on unconventional concepts, such as the re-interpretation of various national anthems („Volk“), or their effort „Laibachkunstderfuge“, paying tribute to the original works of Johann Sebastian Bach.

How come all the cool things go on over in the UK? It would be cool to experience something like that, especially if the Fields of the Nephilim are there. That doesn't sound half bad though. I may organize something in PA that does that, and make it huge!
