Aging Headbangers Escape Nursing Home To Hit Heavy Metal Festival
Managers of a German nursing home began to panic when they couldn’t find a pair of elderly friends anywhere on the grounds. Police later discovered the men “disoriented and dazed”— at a heavy metal festival.
The unidentified pals left the home in the rural Dithmarschen district and likely hitchhiked and took public transit to travel 25 miles to the Wacken Open Air festival near Hamburg. The headbangers’ event is touted as the biggest metal festival in the world.
The two men, nabbed before dawn Saturday, were disappointed to miss the last day of the festival, which began Thursday. But they were sent back to the home in a taxi — escorted by a patrol car, Deutsche Welle reported.
“We had to explain to them why they had to go home,” Itzehoe police spokesman Peter Berndt told The Washington Post. “But in the end, they went back voluntarily.”
Festival organizers apparently loved their escapade and paid homage to the aging metalheads — without naming them — by noting on the event’s Twitter site that there’s “no discrimination” against seniors ... “because you’re never too old to rock.”

Sending those old folks back to the home is very not metal. Jeez, let them enjoy what they still can!
And now on an unrelated note, metal, but with fewer instruments.
Saw these guys open for Pantera, sometime around the late '90s early 2000. The singer Ben Falgoust says the band name. I thought he said Soul and Cream. I thought, what a dumb name for a metal band. Looked everywhere for a Soul and Cream album. Never found it. It was probably a year after that I finally figured out it was Soilent Green
The murderous orphanage thread brought this song to mind, but seems tasteless to post in a thread on such a topic.
Best Prog Death to drop in a while. Tremendous!
Evil Groove-Death. One of the best guitar solos I’ve heard in many a moon, if you’re into that sort of thing.
French Prog radness. Heavy Opeth/Cynic influence.
Gorod, I love the music, dislike the vocals.
Any The Ocean fans?
Damn, I haven't listened to Gorod in years! Their dual-guitar solo on the track "Gutting Job" is brain-melting insanity.
A girlfriend of mine flew from Tampa to NYC for tonight’s Goatwhore show. VIP and backstage passes.
Bless her heart.
I just snagged a couple tickets for this monster. Septicflesh AND Arsis. And it's a saturday night which never seems to happen for metal shows \m/
The new Uncle Acid and the Deadbeats is surprisingly great.
Sounds like Fiona Apple made an album with Geezer Butler. Extremely cool!
