WANTED: Metal-heads in Lausanne

Hello,

I am looking for some people to go for metal concerts in Lausanne and area.

I usually attend to all metal concerts in Les Docks or Le Romandie, it would be nice to share this usually great time with some other metal-heads. We could also simply meet and listen to a nice music when there is nothing interesting going on in the city.

Please, let me know if you are also looking for headbanging companion .

Best,
Ula

Re: WANTED: Metal-heads in Lausanne

Hey,

Are those the usual locations for bands in Lausanne?

I am mostly into punk stuff but I am partial to some metal, I have only been here for a few months but I am missing my live music scene so bad, every international tour just hits Zurich and leaves, this part of the country seems like a dead zone.

Re: WANTED: Metal-heads in Lausanne

Any of you going to Stonehenge in the Netherlands next July?

Pestilence, Asphyx, Suffocation, Cliteater, Avulsed, Thanatos, Hate eternal, Baal, Rectal Smegma and a nice bunch of others.

My main interest is brutal death, extreme doom, and old style grind, and hardly any of the newer for me to technical stuff, I like it brutal without compromises.

(think of bands like Repulsion, Necro Schizma, Brutal truth and such)

Well he said head banging, so it should fit in somewhere in between Motley Crue and Terrorizer :P

Re: WANTED: Metal-heads in Lausanne

Hello Folks!

By metal I meant death metal, black metal, thrash metal and anything which makes you headbang .
I enjoy pretty much a lot of subgenres of metal beside symphonic and power metal (sometimes I am picky on metalcore or hardcore as well).

For example, on 16th of July there is Kreator and Vader in Les Docks. Fancy to join?

@SlickShoes I have no idea about punk but I am quite satisfied with metal scene here... Or maybe my expectations are low?

Came to this thread cause I saw "Metal". I appreciate how you singled out the only 2 metal sub-genres I like with "besides..."

Well, I could enjoy a concert of some power metal band probably, but I wouldn't listen it at home

I am considering going for Gojira too, but I am already going to see them on Brutal Assault, so I am not 100% sure if I'll go to Montreux for them... Beside Gojira there will be plenty of other also nice bands playing in Montreux this summer.



Are you planning to go there for some other bands too?

Re: WANTED: Metal-heads in Lausanne

Sorry, not many plans for concerts this year,
i will watch gojira at the lokerse feesten with hatebreed on aug 05.
Next week i am starting to watch pearl jam in amsterdam, foo fighters in bern, pearl jam (2x ) in london, bad religion in pratteln, foo fighters in london, stone sour in lausanne and terror in aarau.
That will be my 2 weeks holiday (from thursday until sunday evening i hope for some openings as security).

Autum/winter there is not much on offer.......(Kataklysm Oct 28 th in Pratteln)

I work hard on saving money for the move to lake constance and my other hobby , long haul travel.

Re: WANTED: Metal-heads in Lausanne

I came to englishforum with some completely different question, but now when I see "metal" - does anyone know if any sort of metal exists in Bern? Or is it really like there is nothing (except this one pub (Ebrietas))? I know Switzerland is small, so going to Basel/Zurich for a concert is not an issue... but that´s something I kind of miss here in Bern.

there have been very very very rarely metal concerts at bierhubeli, dampfzentral...


blackbird gave a good list, I will add some concert hall that program all kind of music including metal for exemple Romandie in Lausanne, RKC in Vevey, amalgame in Yverdon, pont rouge in Monthey, nouveau monde in Fribourg, komplex, rote fabrik or mascotte in Zürich

Re: WANTED: Metal-heads in Lausanne

You could follow one of my student's band : Down to the Bunker, all local to Lausanne/Geneva

https://mx3.ch/downtothebunker

maybe not hard enough for you.

Not in Bern...but this place throws awesome metal shows and is an easy distance:

This festival held here every year is legendary:
