Danish metallers MNEMIC have been selected to open for METALLICA on July 13 in Aarhus, Denmark. Also appearing on the bill is VOLBEAT.
Commented MNEMIC guitarist Mircea Gabriel Eftemie: "We are beyond stoked, beyond surprised, and MORE than happy to be a part of the METALLICA gig in Aarhus, Denmark!! It's definitely a dream come true for all of us. It simply CANNOT get any bigger for us to say the words, 'Yeah, we've opened up for METALLICA!' It's definitely a nice tap on the shoulder for all the hard work and hard moments MNEMIC have gone through. We would especially like to thank Lars [Ulrich] and the mighty METALLICA for choosing MNEMIC for this fine day of pure Danish metal. We will, of course, make this day extra special, extra heavy, and extra metal!"
METALLICA drummer Lars Ulrich issued an Easter greeting in Danish, announcing that METALLICA had "decided to make our Aarhus day to be of a Danish enterprise... drumroll please... We have actually asked the awesome Danish bands VOLBEAT and MNEMIC to be a part of the event on the 13th of July, and they both freakin' said, 'Yes please!' so, game on and all the good stuff! It's going to be a pure Danish enterprise. Well, yeah, fuck it, 'TALLICA is only one-fourth Danish, but let us celebrate our Danish-ness, where and whenever we can, especially when we aren't home that much. With other words, here is the short version: I am happy to be able to announce that VOLBEAT and MNEMIC will make the METALLICA show in Aarhus the 13th of July as Danish as possible."
MNEMIC recently completed a European tour with the DEFTONES in support of their latest album, "Passenger".
