A little bit of Sweden and a little bit of Norway, a little bit of the Czech Republic and the USA, a pinch of the Faroe Islands, France and Russia! Yes, that’s what Monday will look like on Holy Week in the Swamp, April 11th. Fans of heavy, gothic and progressive metal will come to their senses because Dynazty, Sirenia, Surma and Holy Mother are coming to Zagreb. Tickets at a pre-sale price of 160 kuna can be purchased at the Dirty Old Shop, and at the entrance will cost 180 kuna.
Dynazty is a hard’n’heavy band from Stockholm coming to Croatia for the first time. They were founded in 2007 and have released seven studio albums so far. In their native Sweden, they became a very respectable name and broke into the mainstream. Among others, they collaborated with Peter Tagtren (Hypocrisy, Pain), and they have a reputation as a great live band.
Sirenia celebrated 20 years of the band last year, and this will be their second performance in Zagreb. These Norwegian gothic / symphonic metallers are led by the great French opera singer Emmanuele Zoldan (Trail of Tears, Turisas). They have released 10 studio albums so far and are one of the most influential bands of this genre in general.
Surma is a project backed by Czech-Ukrainian singer Viktoria Surmova and Harry Joensen, the vocalist of the famous folk metal band Tyr from the Faroe Islands. The band was formed in 2018, and its sound can be described as a combination of symphonic and progressive metal. Their debut album was released by Metal Blade Records, and you will be able to listen to things from it in Močvara!
Holy Mother is an American hard’n’heavy band from Long Island formed back in 1994. So far, they have released six studio albums, and in January 2021, “Face This Burn” saw the light of day to promote on April 11 in the Swamp.

Symphonic metal institution SIRENIA released their tenth studio album, Riddles, Ruins & Revelations on February 12, 2021 via Napalm Records. The quartet around mastermind, bandleader, multi-instrumentalist, composer, songwriter and producer Morten Veland is certainly not afraid of combining a heavy symphonic sound with modern influences, which their latest record, Arcane Astral Aeons (2018) is proof of. This time, SIRENIA offers an exciting new twist to their songs, spicing them with electronic vibes, but never losing sight of their musical core.
Surma, a Czech metal band lead by the stunning model Viktorie Surmová, is one of the most soaring, dramatic and moving symphonic metal bands on the contemporary scene. As the first Czech internationally signed Metal band, they released their debut album “The Light Within” on Metal Blade Records in November 2020, an album with not a moment wasted as they weave their epic stories around gigantic songs.
