Hyperspace Metal Festival is proud to announce its return after a year and a half of postponement due to the Covid pandemic.

The lineup for Canada’s premier melodic and power metal festival will feature 20 bands, some originally announced for the 2020 production along with a few new additions that will perform over three nights with headliners Into Eternity, Witherfall and Iron Kingdom (full lineup listed below).
“We are very excited to bring to you the lineup for the rescheduled Hyperspace Metal Festival III! It’s been a long time and most of the bands on the lineup have held on this long waiting for the festival to happen. There have been some changes to the lineup; please welcome Into Eternity, Witherfall, Archon Legion, Dire Peril and Planeswalker to the lineup! This is going to be an unforgettable weekend of melodic metal that if you are a fan of the genre you are not going to want to miss! See you in April!” adds Hyperspace Metal Festival organizer Joey Hockin.

Highlights of the confirmed bands include Into Eternity performing with their 2006 “The Scattering of Ashes” lineup that sees original members, Tim Roth (clean/death vocals & guitar), Troy Bleich (Planet Eater) (bass & clean/death vocals), Stu Block (ex-Iced Earth) (clean/death vocals) and Jim Austin (drums) reunite along with current guitarist Matt Cuthbertson (Untimely Demise). Into Eternity will be executing tracks from their full-length “The Scattering of Ashes”, an album that has sold over 15,000 copies in the US and peaked at number 45 on Billboard’s Top Independent Albums chart along with giving fans a taste of new extreme music from their forthcoming yet to be titled full-length. Dark melodic heavy metal juggernauts Witherfall from Los Angeles will be blazing new trails and weaving new tales in support of their latest 2021 album “Curse of Autumn” (Century Media Records), and local Vancouver heavy metal heroes Iron Kingdom, who are HMF alumni, make their second appearance on the festival lineup after headlining the inaugural 2018 event. In addition to those bands, two extremely rare performances will be witnessed for Planeswalker (California/Cyprus), a Magic The Gathering inspired power metal duo featuring members of Helion Prime and Dire Peril along with a reunion set from Victoria, BC’s Archon Legion, which features members of Unleash The Archers.
Over the two years that Hyperspace Metal Festival has been running, bands from all over the world have come to play power, prog, and speed metal on the Canadian West Coast. The festival has presented lineups that have included performances by Crimson Shadows, West of Hell, Judicator, Odinfist, Tanagra, Scythia, Greyhawk, The Order of Chaos, Red Cain, and many more.
