A word from the photographer

The main stage was fittingly named after the first vampire “Jure Grando”, who was from the area. Despite waking up on the Friday morning to torrential rain, high winds, thunder & lightning, the organisers & volunteers did an incredible job of making the festival a huge success.


MartYriuM  are a blackened death metal from Malta. They performed an intriguing and at times dramatic set with some great guitar playing with the impressive Sandra Misanthrope on vocals. From Poland the alternative metal band Chaos Engine Research and making the journey from England were the hard metal  band Other Eyes Wise.

With two lead vocalist `Frank Novelli` &`Kyo Calati`the Italian band MindAheaD gave an alternative perspective to their progressive metal. Rounding off a great Friday night of music and entertainment was the local modern metal band from Pula Mortal Divinity.

Scarlet Aura

Following on from their European tour `The Beast Within Me` and with Aura Danciulescu on lead vocals. Scarlet Aura, the 4 piece rock / metal band from Romania offered up a great set. Since winning the Black Sea Battle of the bands at Kavarna Rock Fest in 2014, they have gone from strength to strength.

The songs

They played tracks in Romanian from their debut album `The Rock Chick` as well as English tracks from their second album `Falling Sky`. Autumn also sees the release of their third and slightly more progressive / heavy metal album, `Hot n Heavy` as well as the first book in a triology written by Aura Danciulescu.

The headlining group for the Friday night was the Ukrainian Metal band Jinjer with Tatiana Shmailyuk on lead vocals .They offered an explosive mixture of groove, hardcore and progressive metal. Tatiana`s energy was phenomenal as she danced and sang her way around the stage. Her ability to sing in such a rich and velvet tone coupled with her contrasting  unique, raucous and gravelly voice was breath-taking.

With over 10 bands scheduled¬† for the main stage, they started promptly from 16.00 and played continuously until 03.00 with just a 10 or 15 minutes break in between for sound checks. From Croatia and from the festival’s home town of Pula, the hugely popular death metal band Infernal Tenebra put in a great performance with some incredible head banging and guitar playing. The Croatian doom metal band Old Night from Rijeka played long into the night.¬†

From Italy

Three Italian bands Reapter, Arkana Code and the five piece death metal band Mechanical God Creation all put in good performances.

The face painted  Black / Death Metal  Spanish band Atrexial from Barcelona  were a joy to watch and did a great show. From Britain came the Old School Death Metal band Repulsive Vision and from Poland the Industrial Metal band UDS РUnderdamped System

The headline band for Saturday night was the Dutch  band Sinister. With over 25 years of tours and festivals behind them, it was no surprise that they gave an outstanding performance with their compact and fierce style of Death Metal music.


Food and drink

It was refreshing to go to a festival and not be charged extortionate prices for food and drink . The bar offered reasonable and normal priced beer with friendly helpful staff and the caterers kept me well fed for 3 days.

Away from the music

There were exhibitions by numerous artists such as¬†Ksenija Mijokovińá and Nikola Mijokovińá and¬†sculptors by Mario Devcińá from Pula and Laura Pepel from Italy.¬†There was also an interesting historical exhibition about Pula before 1945. In between the live bands, Roman ¬†Gladiators¬†from Pula wandered ¬†through the crowds and performed hard fought battles with each other.
