Rock Metal Festival HG Starts in Holguin

Festival_RockH.JPGWith the delivery of the Angelote de la Ciudad to the rock band Mephisto, started today the 19th edition of the National Rock Metal Festival HG, dedicated to the 20th anniversary of this Holguín music band, in the north east of Cuba.

Raúl Cardona, main organizer of the event sponsored by the Hermanos Saíz Association (AHS) in the territory, acknowledged at a press conference the work of the band in these two decades.

"It's difficult for a rock metal group to reach its 20s because of the many obstacles it must face. However, Mephisto did it with new proposals such as the CD-DVD recorded with Bis Music, which contains its concert with the Symphony Orchestra of Holguin at the Eddy Suñol Theater in the opening of the 15th edition of Metal HG ".

Until October 8 the festival will bring together Cuban rock bands such as Claim, Spoleta, Complot and Resistenzia, which will offer their concerts in the Gabinete Caligari.

According to Cardona, announced the event will also include theoretical event, meetings to debate on rock music and spaces devoted to the Tattoo-art aimed at breaking stereotypes about the body art.

"Metal HG" is the second longest-lived music event in the province, after the Mayarí Son Festival. It is sponsored by the AHS in the province and has the support of other institutions such as the Provincial and Municipal Directorate of Culture, the Music and Entertainment Company, the Cuban Rock Agency and Brutal Beatdown Records.
