Metal festivals commonly favour a crowd into the classics and tend to book bands who have been playing for decades without bringing in any fresh blood as headliners. The Barcelona Metal Festival, with six hours of music in Poble Espanyol's Plaza Mayor, was born out of the idea of filling in this gap in the market and becoming the first permanent metal festival in the city.
Standards of symphonic metal, Holland's Within Temptation (7.30pm) headline the festival with a big show that will have them performing from their latest album, 'Hydra' (2014). Following them are Paradise Lost, out of the UK, who are celebrating 25 years together, and strong players on the Spanish scene, Sôber, Inmune and Ankor.
