Ragehammer – black/thrash metal band formed in 2012 in Kraków (Poland). In 2016 they debuted with one of the most thrilling albums on the Polish music scene – “The Hammer Doctrine”. The album contains raw and satanic metal music in its most primitive form forged by the standards set by the Gods in Venom, Sodom, Impaled Nazarene or Bathory.

His most recent graphic novel “Będziesz się smażyć w piekle” received in 2016 a triple award from the Polish Comic Association (for best illustrator, best scriptwriter and best Polish comic book), and was awarded at the 28th International Comic Book Festival in Łódź for the best Polish comic book. At Metalmania Festival you will be able to meet the author in person as well as to buy his book.

Bielak, one of the most respected contemporary artists on the stage, visionary graphic artist and illustrator, an artist who in recent years has revolutionized the approach to the art graphics on the metal scene.
