KK's PRIEST confirmed - only show in Sweden

kk242_1.jpgIn 1969, the first edition of one of the world's biggest bands within the New Wave of British Heavy Metal - Judas Priest - was formed. One of the founders was guitarist KK Downing. KK was in the band until 2011 and over the years, he was one of the songwriters for most of the metal world's biggest songs as "Breaking the Law", "Living After Midnight" and "Painkiller".

 

After KK left Judas Priest, he has not been very active as a musician. He has made a few guest appearances on records and some occasional live performances but not more than that. Until the spring of 2020, that is, when he announced that he would start writing brand new music again. The new band, KK's Priest, took shape and released their debut album, "Sermons of the Sinner" in 2021. If you like Judas Priest, you will learn to like the album in question because even if it doesn't necessarily sound the same as Judas Priest, the kinship is there.

 

In addition to KK on guitar, the band consists of A J Mills (guitar), Tony Newton (bass), Sean Elg (drums) and Tim "Ripper" Owens (vocals). During the 90s, Tim was also part of Judas Priest's line up as he replaced classic singer Rob Halford for two very underrated records. So if you want to hear real metal of the highest quality, make sure to be there when the legend KK Downing enters the stage in Knislinge. Now the band's debut album stands well on its own two feet, but it is not entirely impossible that we will also hear the occasional Judas Priest classic.


In addition, it should be mentioned that Judas Priest was recently inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, which means that KK Downing is one of two members of this honorable society visiting our festival this year. The other is Marky Ramone.

 

The gig will be the first in Sweden and also the only one, so it really is an exclusive booking we are offering!

THE RODS TO REPLACE METAL CHURCH American, classic metal from the 80s, fronted by singer and guitarist David Feinstein - The Rods! Between 1967 and 1973, David Feinstein was in the band Elf with his cousin, Ronnie James Dio. David managed to quit the band before Elf became classic Rainbow and around 1980 he formed and drummer Carl Canedy THE RODS, which was a much harder band than the two previously mentioned. One can find similarities with both Saxon and Manowar. The band had a hiatus between 1986 and 2010, but has since the reunion been all the time active. In addition to David and Carl, the...

Regular campsite is already fully booked! The interest in this year's festival is greater than ever and the regular campsite is already fully booked! This applies to both caravans, mobile homes and tents. This then means that we will extend the campsite and make it twice as big as before.

The fact that we are extending the campsite also means that we are extending the amenities. We...

Three new acts confirmed! We are slowly but surely approaching a full line-up and today we can present three more acts that are ready for Time To Rock Festival 5-8 July 2024. For 40 years, DORO has worked to cement herself as Germany's, and probably the world's, hard rock queen ##1. Doro started her musical career at home in Germany in smaller bands like Snakebite and Beast before she started singing in Warlock. Warlock released four records in the 80s, from "Burning the Witches" (1984) to "Triumph and Agony" (1989). This summer she will join us at Time To Rock and we think that is...

Hardcore Superstar confirmed! It's been a few years since the last time, so we thought it was about time again for this bunch of real rock stars! Hardcore Superstar was formed in 1997. Since the beginning, the Gothenburg band's permanent members have been singer Joakim Berg and bassist Martin Sandvik. Next year, Magnus "Adde" Andreasson celebrates 25 years on the drum stand, and already this year, guitarist Vic Zino, has his 15th anniversary in the band. Between 1998 and 2003 Hardcore Superstar released four records. In 2005, the band did a "Metallica" and released their self-titled and, coincidentally(?), black record. As a result, the...

Pretty Maids are back! PRETTY MAIDS (DK) If you grew up and were a "hard rocker" in the 80s, you obviously know Danish PRETTY MAIDS . In 1984, the band released their first full-length, "Red, Hot & Heavy" and who doesn't remember the title song and the opening "Back to Back" and others. A pure masterpiece! The debut was followed up by "Future World" in 1987, which sold over 300,000 copies. After the third full-length "Jump the Gun" (1990) the band split up, leaving only guitarist Ken Hammer and vocalist Ron Atkins at the helm.
