PREVIEW: Heart Sound Metal Festival, FR

The fourth edition of Heart Sound Metal Fest takes place Saturday, April 6th, 2019, in Sucy-en-Brie (near Paris, France). Since its creation in 2014, Heart Sound Metal Fest (HSMF) has been donating all festival profits to a local organization dedicated to fighting leukaemia: Ensemble contre les leucemies.

This year’s HSMF line-up features seven nationally and internationally acclaimed bands representing tech and progressive metal, djent, deathcore and hardcore. Highlights include Danish powerhouse VOLA, Swedish dark deathcore act Humanity’s Last Breath (exclusive and first appearance in Paris) and Norwegian geniuses Leprous. French metal acts complete the line-up: Stomb, The Dali Thundering Concept and local band Promethean.

Recently Einar Solberg, front man of Leprous, announced a unique performance for the festival: a shuffle live set. The audience will draw tracks from a box and the band will perform them on the spot. It is a format that Leprous has never done before and an exclusive for the festival.

Metal versus Leukemia

Heart Sound Metal Fest raised 5000€ for Ensemble contre les Leucémies in 2017 and they’re hoping to donate at least the same amount or even more this year.

Donations help the organization offer services like:

  • Providing moral and material support to patients and their families.
  • Improving hospital conditions and helping out two Parisian hospitals: Robert-Debré and Armand Trousseau.
  • Raising public awareness about leukaemia, and especially about blood, platelets, stem cells, bone marrow and umbilical cord donations, and enroll more people on the national Donor Registry.
  • Supporting medical research to find more efficient treatments.
