We have some bad news today… We are sorry to announce that TAURUS (us) have had to to cancel their performance at Heavy Days as well as the rest of the planned Euro tour. Due to complications with Stevie Floyd’s pregnancy, it is unfortunately not possible for them to tour at this time.
They have sent some words below;
-TAURUS regretfully has to announce that we will not be able to play the Heavy Days In Doom Town festival, or any other of our upcoming European shows. We feel terrible about this decision and we were so excited about touring for our new record No/Thing which we have worked so hard on, but Stevie’s pregnancy is just too important and has caused a lot more pressure and attention than she expected. Stevie’s words…“I truly thought that I could make this happen and follow through with this tour but certain elements were just out of my control. My health and daughter have to come first. I hope that we can make this happen next year.”-
We wish Stevie and Taurus the best in the upcoming time and hope to see this through at next years Heavy Days!
We have already found a replacement for TAURUS that we will announce tomorrow, so look out for the announcement…

This time we are announcing Hrvoje Karalic from Croatia! and Rev.B.Pan from Berlin.
Hrvoje Karalics skills were honored at Savannah College of Art and Design, for which he received a scholarship. Savannah’s DIY heavy music scene was a huge inspiration for him, as well as the bands’ attention to his artwork. After graduation he hit the road, and his elaborate “Can You Spare a Ticket” signs were seen for over a decade in front of concerts throughout U.S. and Europe, wherever his hitchhiking luck would take him. A diehard film fan, he’s been volunteering at the Sitges fantastic film festival for the past 8 years. His silkscreened concert posters so far were for Swans, Melvins, and two for Neurosis, with a third Neurosis poster in the works.
Rev.B.Pan is a lady that is coming to HDDT for the second time bringing her installations and magical world for you to enter.
Rev.b pan works in a wide range of mediums and materials. Shown here is a series of boxes, multi-medium collages reminiscent of Joseph Cornell. Intricate constructions made of things found and scavenged from the streets and markets, the discarded fragments of once beautiful and precious objects that rely on the surrealistic technique of irrational juxtaposition to tell a story in their correlation. These boxes form a poetry from the commonplace, a theatre of memory that evokes a strong and almost instinctive emotion, a nostalgia vivid with half remembered fantasies that reminds us ultimately of the strangeness of the familiar, and the odd familiarity of the strange.
The art lineup keeps expanding and we are very happy for it! Today we can tell you that both Rose Angelo Johansen and Jas Helena has been added amongst others!
Rose is one of our danish sisters and co organiser at HDDT festival and she will exhibit some of her beautiful artwork at HDDT this year! Unfortunately she will not be able to attend herself but she will be there in spirit and through her artwork. This lady is so much a part of the music and the spirit of this festival that we think Its a given and obvious that she shall exhibit at the festival. Her artwork is Nordic Gothic ink on paper. It is simple and perfect but yet full of details, darkness and mystic! Enjoy her works!
And Jas Helena is a lady orginating from California, USA. She specialize in all black pen and ink art work. She is mainly inspired through occult, architecture, nature, and the baroque. It has only been a year and a half since she has been putting her art out however in that time she has accomplished much. She has worked with several metal bands including Amarok and Funerary and we expect big things from her in the future!
Enjoy these treasures!!!
