Don’t forget to lubricate your vocal chords to shout the lyrics to such classics as ‘Imperium’, ‘Aesthetics of Hate’ and ‘Davidian’ at the top of your lungs! For their fourth stint at GMM they are bringing a special headline production. Let freedom ring with a shotgun blast!

his year one of the finest classical voices in Belgium, Helmut Lotti, is presenting his new project: “Hellmut Lotti Goes Metal”. For decades, Hellmut has had a predilection for metal and this is the first time he will share that passion with a live audience – and at GMM no less! Rendezvous on Sunday 18 June in the Metal Dome!

The following acts complete the #GMM23 line-up: Eclipse, Pro-Pain, Rage Against the Machine guitarist Tom Morello and Belgian death metallers Schizophrenia.
