With April Fools’ well past us, it is now safe to make this announcement, and we’re sure everyone will believe us.

Zix, the Lebanese heavy metal band, has been teasing us for a while about a thrilling announcement. Well today, they dropped the bomb, and it is official – Zix will be part of the Slovenian festival Metal Days 2016.

They’ll share the stage with Testament, Kreator, Blind Guardian, Exodus, etc…

They are the second Lebanese band to play there, the first being Blaakyum back in 2012-2013.
