Bandung-based death metal band Jasad is scheduled to play at the world's biggest heavy metal festival, Wacken Open Air in northern Germany, in August this year, during which they will share the bill with some of the biggest names in the genre, including Judas Priest, Helloween, Danzig and Sepultura.
Jasad also announced that after their performance in Wacken, they would head to the Czech Republic for a show at the Brutal Assault Festival. Metal groups Suicidal Tendencies, Gojira and Misery Index and Brazilian metal band Sepultura are also expected to join the festival.
Wacken Open Air has been billed as the world's biggest metal festival and Germany's biggest open air festival in the small town of Wacken.
More than 80,000 metal fans are expected to show up during the festival, which will take place on a site the size of 270 soccer pitches.
In the past, metal giants like Metallica and Scorpions made appearances, boosting the festival's status as a mecca for metal fans.
Jasad is not the first Indonesian act to perform at the festival.
In 2015, fellow Bandung metal band Burgerkill showed up for a performance, followed by another Bandung outfit, Beside, in 2017.
