Heavy metal is a type of rock music that developed in the early 1970s, mostly in the UK. The music is characterised by a thick, massive sound, with highly amplified distortion, long guitar solos, strong beats, and is generally expected to be loud. This year Notte Bianca is very pleased to have managed to secure the biggest Metal export from Malta, Beheaded.

12th Ode is a five piece Heavy Metal band from Malta. The band started as a Classic Rock covers band in 2010. Then, in 2013, influenced by the NWOBHM movement, the band established itself among the local Metal community and every year since then it was invited to play at the MDM (Malta Doom Metal) Festival. 12th Ode was also the supporting band for Diamond Head and Krokus. The band’s debut album arrived in 2015 and the next one is planned for 2019.

Grotium is a Maltese Heavy/Thrash Metal band made up of five musicians with a mutual love for the sound of power. They love the metal sounds of the 70s and 80s but admit to having a helping of modern metal influences as well.

Beheaded is a death metal band from Malta which was formed in 1991. They have earned widespread respect in the extreme music scene with six official releases and several tours and festivals in Europe, US and Asia. The horror breathes and death is coming!
