A couple of months ago, we made this exact draw. But the winner has not claimed his prize, event hough we have contacted him several times. We therefore assume that his is not interested in receiving it.

This gives someone else a change to win:

- A t-shirt with NECROPHOBIC
- A set of a sticker, a guitar pick and a bagde with Asphyx
- A metal pin with WATAIN
- Goat Synagogue - Enter the Feast MC

The winner of this unannounced draw is...

Member #18 - Morten Block

Congratulations! We hope you want to claim your prize 😀

We will announce the next prize draw next weekend. In the mean time, you can read our interview with the member of the crew group, Xenia, who is responsible for making the bar run smooth every year at the festival. Just look in the last note on this page.

Friends of Metal Magic Festival

Interview with the MMF Crew - part 1 - The BarYou probably all know, that Metal Magic Festival is run by a large group of volunteers. Every time you order a beer, it is a volunteer, that serves the beer, and every time the toilets are cleaned, it is a volunteer that does the cleaning. But many of you might not know, that there is a crew group, made up by highly dedicated people working all year round to make sure the festival is ready for you every summer. We thought it might be interesting for you, the festival’s most loyal guests, to get acquainted with the members of the crew group and learn a bit about what it takes to make Metal Magic Festival happen every summer. We will therefore do a small series of interviews with all the members of the crew group, asking them all the same 10 quick questions. We will start with what many of you might deem to be the most important area of the festival. The bar! Meet Xenia, who is in charge of your beers 1.How many years have you been going to MMF all in all? I’ve been going since the beginning. 2. How many years have you been part of the crew group? Also since the beginning. 3. How did you join the MMF crew group? Martin contacted me back in the days asking if I would like to help at the entrance. 4. What are your responsibilities in the MMF crew group I started at the entrance selling tickets, but it quickly escalated and for about the last 8-9 years I’ve been volunteering in the bar. I have been in charge for the last 5-6 years along with 2-3 other dedicated volunteers. 5. What are the biggest challenges for your when planning the festival and during the festival? Planning the festival is always a roller coaster ride. Getting the work schedule filled out with all our amazing bar volunteers, making sure all is set up for it to run smoothly, making the experience for the guests as good as possible. Thursday, before we open, it’s always running around stressed, making sure we haven’t forgotten anything :D During the festival the greatest challenge is closing the bar at 2 o’clock. We would love to expand the opening hours, but we can’t get the permit from the authorities, so we must close. And of course, our beloved guests does not want the party to end therefore it can be a bit of a hassle to get them out of the bar tent so we can close. 6. What has changed the most since you joined the crew group? Well, we are now at a new location at Dronningepladsen, so that is of course a big change. 7. What is the best thing about being part of the MMF crew group? Just being a part of it. It’s become all of our little baby :D I remember the first year at the new location, we were all so afraid of how it would work out, and most of all how the guests would react. And standing there in the sunshine Thursday afternoon, seeing all the smiling guests and everything running smoothly. I felt that. Magic... I almost cried. Haha. :D :D 8. What could the guests do to make your job and the festival run smother? For the bar, not much. I can’t really think of anything other than being more willing to leave the bar tent at 2 o’clock. We unfortunately can’t control the legislation and don’t have permission to keep the bar open after said time. 9. What band (or bands) are you looking forward to the most this year (of the bands that has been announced at this point)? I’m not attending MMF because of the music. I’m there because of the magic experience every year and because of all the fantastic people attending. 10. How would you convince someone to come to Metal Magic Festival if they haven’t visited the festival yet? Tell them about how magical it is. ‘Cause it truly is. 😊 ...

Friends of Metal Magic Festival

Interview with loyal festival guest, Kim Non-StopKim lives in Fredericia and has been a regular guest on the festival from the very first year. He has never been a part of the planning or been a volunteer as such. Even though he has been persuaded to help out with the printed program for the festival. But he is passionate about the festival, and he is always present when ever there is a Metal Magic related event in Fredericia. He is, in other words, a true Friend of Metal Magic Festival, why we thought it was ideal to have a talk with him about what the festival means to him. As the Danes that knows Kim will know, he’s really got a unique way with words. Therefore the Danes can scroll down for a (mildly edited) Danish version. It’s great that you are willing to do this interview with us Kim! The festival has been though quite a big change these past years. How do you like the new location of the festival? You’re welcome. In my opinion, the festival has been through a lot since 2008 and last year was the biggest change with the new location. I was a bit nervous about the thought of experiencing Metal Magic at a big open grass field without any buildings. But it was a really cool experience and everything worked nicely with all the big tents, the food stalls and beer servings. The place is really cool. I’m quite happy that we have been cut of a lot more from the buildings and citizens of the city. There is more peace and quiet to misbehave at the new location. You have been a guest at the festival every year. What is your earliest memory? My earliest memory must be my very first steps on the festival grounds. I was late the first day at the festival in 2008, but I just made it to hear Johnny Nightmare say “thank you and goodbye”. Haha... What is your best memory? Hmm. It’s hard to mention just one memory. There has been so many good memories with a lot of people and concerts. Some of the memories have been lost through the years. But a bit of a peculiar memory I have from Metal Magic 3 in 2010, was when I had snuck down to the indoor backstage toilet to take a leak. There was a man standing at the sink with a towel over his head, drying his hair. When I passed him I gave him a pat on the back and said, in Danish, something like “it’s important to remember to wipe yourself properly when you have been to the toilet”. The guy got very surprised and turned around and looked at me. At this moment I realizede it’s Kevin Heybourne of Angel Witch! I was quick to apologize, tying to save the awkward moment by saying the same thing again in English. Fortunately he is a very nice guy and replied “Yes of course”. When you attended the first MMF, did you imagined that the festival would develop like it has, and that it would become a recurring event, that is now taking place for the 11th year in a row? I think, I have always believed there would be Heavy Metal events in Fredericia. And that the events would be organized by the people behind Metal Magic. No doubt about that. If I believed in 9 festivals in a row on the old location? No, I don’t think so. Because I think there has been a bit of adversity throughout the years. I also didn’t think back then, that the festival would change location and become as independent as it is today. I’m sill not sure, if the festival will continue for many years still on the new location. But of course I hope so. I know it’s close to impossible to highlight one concert as the best one. But could you maybe try to highlight some of the concerts you thought was something special, something you could only experience on MMF? Yes, it’s close to impossible to highlight just one. And if it is something you could only experience on Metal Magic, I find hard to decide on. I could mention 10, but to keep it short, mentioning the 3 shows I think of first will have to make do. Abysmal Grief on Metal Magic 2 in 2009. That was really brilliant. I have seen the band twice since, and it seems it will never be the same again. I don’t know what is the problem with their live shows now, but fortunately every one of their albums is genius! They just had a very powerful energy that day. Great sound and a fantastic timing with the lights on stage. An unforgettable atmosphere. Mortuary Drape on Metal Magic 6 in 2013. Again a fantastic atmosphere at the indoor stage at the old location. To see the front man (Wildness Perversion) running around like an animal freaked out on rituals. That was way to cool! And the small hooded bass-guitar player with the really large green 5-string bass-guitar. It was like watching a sci-fi horror show unfold that just got wilder and wilder. And again, super nice sound and cool stage lighting. ABSU on Metal Magic Part Zero 2017. Yes, I was actually quite satisfied with that concert. It was short. And there was a bit of trouble with the sound. But ABSU is just a powerful experience. A man turned up next to me half way though the show and he asked me if I knew were the front man was. When I explained to him that the front man just sat down behind the drum kit to play the drums as well, the man replies that he found it completely unbelievable that it’s possible to play that wildly and to sing that insanely good at the same time. And that actually sums up my experience quite nicely. Amazing concert at the new location. What bands are you looking forward to the most at this years festival? Dead Kosmonaut, Masters Hammer og Alien Force Are there one or more bands, who have not yet played MMF, that you would wish to see at the festival? I could properly name 60 bands I think (and hope) would fit fairly to the festival’s musical stile and fiances. But here I will merely mention 10 bands: Primordial, Tony Martin (ex-Black Sabbath, well if he even still plays live?), Repulsion, Tormentor (Hungary), Venom, The Coffinshakers, Nekromantix, Cirith Ungol, Sadistic Intent and Mysticum In your opinion, what makes MMF unique? And how would you convince someone that’s never been to the festival to by a ticket for this years festival? All the festivals I’ve been to in Denmark, Germany and Sweden have had something about them that have made them unique and different in their own way. If Metal Magic is more unique and special that the other festivals is hard to say. If I should convince someone to come, I would definitely start by mentioning the prize of beer. It’s fantastic and very rare that you can by a draft beer at 25 DDK at a metal festival in today’s Denmark. That has (as far as I can recall!) not changed very much throughout the last 11 years. And that is fantastic. It’s possible for everyone to be a part of it regardless of your own personal finances. And then there is the music! It’s a matter of taste, yes! But I think there is always something worth seeing every year. And I think Metal Magic every year does what is possible to mix up the genres and attract some strong underground names, and also to have some quite large bands as well. There should be at least 3-4 bands that could tempt you to visit the festival in Fredericia. And then there is the whole atmosphere. It is really top notch. Drunk and happy people headbanging and partying constantly for 3 days. This is properly what really makes a particular impression. Because Metal Magic is, in my view, a great garden party with great music. Thank you to E. Bregendahl Photography for the photo. Check out her other nice photos here: https://www.facebook.com/EBregendahlPhotography/ DANISH VERSION Interview med stamgæst, Kim Non-Stop Kim bor i Fredericia og har været en fast gæst på festivalen lige siden det første år. Han har aldrig været en del af planlægningen eller været frivillig, som sådan. Selvom han alligevel er blevet lokket til at hjælpe lidt med festivalens årlige trykte program. Men han brænder for festivalen og han er et fast element hver gang der sker noget i Fredericia, som er Metal Magic relateret. Han er med andre ord en sand Friend of Metal Magic Festival, og det var derfor oplagt at få en snak med ham om, hvad festivalen betyder for ham. Fedt at du vil stille op til et interview med os Kim! Festivalen har jo været igennem en stor udvikling de sidste år. Hvad synes du om den nye lokation, festivalen har fået? Det var så lidt. Festivalen har været igennem rigtig meget siden 2008, synes jeg, og sidste år kom den største ændring i form af den nye lokation ved Fredericia idrætshal. Jeg var en smule nervøs ved tanken om at skulle opleve Metal Magic på en stor og åben græsplæne uden bygninger. Men det var en super fed oplevelse og fungerede godt med alle de store telte, madboderne og øludskænkningen. Stedet er rigtig fedt. Jeg er glad for, at vi er blevet afskåret betydelig mere fra bygninger og borgere i byen. Der er mere ro og plads til at skeje sig ud på det nye sted. Du har jo været gæst på festivalen alle år, den har været afholdt. Hvad er dit tidligste minde om MMF? Mit tidligste minde, må vel være mit første skridt på festivalen. Jeg kom for sent den første dag på festivalen i 2008 og nåede akkurat kun lige at hører Johnny Nightmare sige farvel og tak. Haha... Hvad er dit bedste minde? Puha.. Det er svært bare at nævne et enkelt tilfælde. Der har virkelig været mange gode minder med en masse folk og koncerter. Nogle minder har man måske glemt med årene. Men et lidt specielt minde jeg har, er fra Metal Magic 3 i 2010, hvor jeg havde listet mig ned på det indendørs toilet for lige at pisse af. Der står en mand nede ved håndvasken med et håndklæde over sit hoved og han er i gang med at tørre sit hår. Da jeg går forbi ham, giver jeg ham et godt klap i ryggen og siger noget hen af, at man skal sgu huske at tørre sig ordentlig efter et lokums besøg. Personen bliver meget forskrækket, og da han vender sig om og kikker på mig, ser jeg at det er Kevin Heybourne fra Angel Witch! Jeg underskylder hurtigt, og prøver at rette det pinlige øjeblik lidt ud ved at nævne det på engelsk. Manden var heldigvis flink nok til at svare ”Yes Of Course”. Da du var til den første MMF, havde du så forestillet dig, at festivalen ville udvikle sig som den gjorde og blive et tilbagevendende event, som nu kører på 11. år? Jeg har altid troet at der ville være Heavy Metal arrangementer i Fredericia. Og som ville være arrangeret af arrangøren bag Metal Magic. Ingen tvivl om det. Om jeg havde troet på 9 festivaler i streg på den gamle lokation (ungdomshuset i Fredericia). Det havde jeg nok ikke, for synes, at der har været lidt modvind igennem årene også. Jeg havde heller ikke troet den gang, at festivalen ville flytte, og slet ikke at den ville stå så meget på egne ben som den gør i dag. Jeg ved stadig ikke om den vil fortsætte derudaf i mange år på det nye sted. Men jeg håber det selvfølgelig! Jeg ved, det er tæt på umuligt at fremhæve én koncert som den bedste. Men har du alligevel lyst til at prøve at fremhæve nogle koncerter, som du synes, var noget helt særligt, og som kun kunne opleves på MMF? Ja det er stort set umuligt at frem hæve bare én. Og om det kun kunne opleves på Metal Magic, det har jeg nok lidt svært ved at afgøre. Jeg kunne nævne 10, men for ikke at ende med at skrive flere siders beretning, nøjes jeg med de 3 som kommer til mig først. Abysmal Grief på Metal Magic 2 i 2009. Det var virkelig genialt. Jeg har set bandet 2 gange siden, og det ser ud til aldrig at blive det samme igen. Jeg ved ikke hvad de gør forkert live nu, men deres udgivelser er heldigvis geniale hver gang! De havde bare en stærk energi den dag. God lyd og fantastisk med timingen af scenelys. En uforglemmelig stemning. Mortuary Drape på Metal Magic 6 i 2013. Igen en fantastisk stemning på den indendørs scene på den gamle lokation. At se forsangeren (Wildness Perversion) rende frem og tilbage som en abe på scenen, mens han var helt skudt af i ritualer. Det var alt for fedt. Og den lille kutte klædte bassist med den virkelig store 5 strengede grønne bas. Det var som at se et sci-fi horror show folde sig ud, og blive vildere og vildere. Og igen, super lyd og fedt scenelys. ABSU Metal Magic Part Zero 2017. Ja. Jeg var faktisk pænt tilfreds med den koncert. Den var kort. Og der var lidt vrøvl med lyden. Men ABSU var bare en stærk oplevelse. En mand, som dukker op ved siden af mig sidst i koncerten, spørger om jeg ved hvor forsangeren er. Og da jeg forklarer at forsangeren lige har sat sig ned for at spille trommer også, siger manden at det er da helt ufattelig at man kan spille så vildt og synge så sindssygt på samme tid. Og det beskrev faktisk også min oplevelse ganske fint. Fantastisk koncert på den nye lokation. Hvilke bands ser du mest frem til i årets program? Dead Kosmonaut, Masters Hammer og Alien Force Er der et eller flere bands, som endnu ikke har spillet på MMF, som du drømmer om at se på festivalen? Jeg kunne vel nævne 60 bands, som jeg tror (og håber) vil passe nogenlunde ind i festivalens stil og økonomi. Men jeg nævner lige 10 hurtige: Primordial, Tony Martin (ex-Black Sabbath, hvis han da gider spille live mere?), Repulsion, Tormentor (Ungarn), Venom, The Coffinshakers, Nekromantix, Cirith Ungol, Sadistic Intent og Mysticum Hvad er det, efter din mening, der gør MMF helt speciel? Og hvordan ville du overbevise en person, der aldrig har været på festivalen før, til at købe billet til årets festival? Alle de festivaler jeg har prøvet i Danmark, Tyskland og Sverige har alle noget som gør dem speciele og anderledes på hver deres egen måde, Om Metal Magic er mere anderledes og speciel end andre festivaler er svært at sige. Men hvis jeg skulle starte med at overbevise nogen, ville jeg helt sikkert starte med at snakke om ølpriserne. Det er fantastisk og sjældent at man kan købe en fadøl til 25 kroner i dagens Danmark på en metal festival. Det har (så vidt jeg husker!) ikke ændret sig ret meget igennem de sidste 11 år. Og det er fantastisk. Alle kan være med her økonomisk. Så er der musikken! – Det er en smags sag ja! Men jeg syntes der er noget at komme efter hvert år. Og jeg synes, at Metal Magic hvert år gør hvad de kan, for at blande genrerne og hive nogle stærke undergrunds navne til, samt nogle halv store navne også. Der burde være minimum 3-4 bands som lokker en til Fredericia. Og så er der stemningen. Den er helt i top. Fulde og glade mennesker headbanger og fester konstant i 3 dage. Og det er måske nok det sidste her, som virkelig gør et specielt indtryk. For Metal Magic er i mine øjne en stor have fest med god musik. Tak til E. Bregendahl Photography for billedet.

Friends of Metal Magic Festival

Interview with Martin Jørgensen, main man behind Metal Magic FestivalAs most of you probably know, last year was a very important year for Metal Magic Festival. From the very first year of MMF the location has been Ungdommens Hus in Fredericia. But several different factors meant, that the crew behind the festival felt it was time for a new beginning at a new location. This also meant starting from scratch financially, as the festival’s economy had been tied in with Ungdommens Hus’ budget, and it was not possible to withdraw any funds for the start-up on the new location. This was obviously quite a big challenge. Martin, first of all thank you for using a bit of time to answer our nosy questions. As we just stated, last year was quite a landmark for Metal Magic Festival. Now that last years festival is a little at a distance, how do you think it went? Hey Jeanette and first of all a big thank you for your great work in favor of MMF! The festival last year actually went beyond all expectations we had beforehand. We had some chaotic times when our first location met some local resistance and we suddenly were forced to find a new location. But with good help from the municipality of Fredericia and a lot of hard work from the MMF Crew, we managed to find the right spot AND get the planning almost perfect in the first try. Well, who would have thought that, eh? What was the biggest challenges regarding the new location? The biggest challenge last year was that we had to re-do 6 months of already planned festival, because of the sudden move. It took a lot of hours from the MMF crew during the spring of 2017 to rethink every little detail and do it all over again with new conditions. Also we had to really convince people that the festival was actually going to happen, as we heard there were some doubts here and there... But that only helped us strengthen our conviction! What were you most satisfied with? The hard work of the many volunteers and we will definitely have some initiatives the coming years to make their festival better. FMMF donated some funds before last years festival. How did this money help you? The money from FMMF helped us upgrade the stages with better sound and lighting than we originally had planned for. So it was really a big helping hand for us to do a better festival last year with these extra funds! What can we expect from this year’s festival? What improvements are you working on? We really do not intend to revolutionize very much. Last years festival showed us that the general setup works damn fine on the new location. But of course we always look into improving things when possible and we have some ideas that we are working on as we speak. For this year's festival, the Generalen tent will be a bit bigger and hopefully with better lights and a more cool looking stage too. Also some better conditions for the volunteers are something the we have a lot of focus on. Other new initiatives at Metal Magic this year is Mexican food (MexiGo) and some craft beers (Dry & Bitter) What is the plan in regards to expanding the festival? Is there any limitations size wise? Well, we don't actually have plans to exceed the 666 guests that we are hoping to reach within the next few years. It's such a good number you know! But of course, if we get the chance of a Mercyful Fate reunion in Fredericia, I guess we must expand a bit to make it happen hahaha! The line-up looks really amazing already. We know the line up is not yet complete. But based on the already announced bands, which are you looking forward to the most yourself? And what band are you most proud to have booked? Personally I'm looking very much forward to the Swedish maniacs from Obnoxious Youth, who I think will blow everyone away on Thursday night! Also the almost two hour long Goblin show will be something very very special! Any last words for all the Friends of Metal Magic Festival? We REALLY appreciate what you are doing with FMMF, keep up the good work and see you all in Fredericia very soon!!! ...

Back in January our member #36, Lasse Mikkelsen won this Grusom t-shirt. However he has decided, he does not need it, as he doesn't look good in a t-shirt size small, girlie. Because of that he has asked us to host a small give away.

If you, or someone you know, would look good in this t-shirt, please comment on this post and tell us why you or your friend would look good in the t-shirt.

On Sunday, Lasse Mikkelsen will pick the one he thinks deserves the t-shirt the most! 😀
