The venue for the 23rd edition of Poland's Metalmania Festival, set to take place March 7, 2009, has been changed from Spodek Hall in Katowice to the smaller Stodola Club in Warsaw. SOULFLY, EXODUS, OVERKILL and HEAVEN SHALL BURN are the first confirmed bands for the event, with two special guests to be announced soon.

The Metalmania Festival has a long and great history. Running for over 20 years, it has become the biggest and the most important metal festival in Poland and Czech Republic. In the past, the festival hosted over 300 artists from all around the world! The last edition (March 8, 2008) included appearances by such acts as VADER, ARTILLERY, IMMOLATION, FLOTSAM AND JETSAM, SATYRICON, PRIMORDIAL, THE DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN, OVERKILL, MEGADETH, MARDUK and OVERKILL. Each edition is very well documented, as the show in Katowice is recorded and released as a DVD+CD compilation. The "Metalmania 2008" DVD will be released on January 26, 2009 in Europe and March 10, 2009 in USA (via MVD).
