W:O:A Acoustic Clash - The Lockdown Session: Four covers of ultimate rock and metal hits transformed into enchanting acoustic anthems!

Right in time for Christmas, symphonic/melodic shooting stars BEYOND THE BLACK are gifting their fans with a really special treat: their new EP, W:O:A Acoustic Clash - The Lockdown Session, available digitally on December 18, 2020 via Napalm Records.

The W:O:A Acoustic Clash began as a bet between BEYOND THE BLACK and Thomas Jensen (Wacken Open Air): In the course of 48 hours, the quartet had to arrange and record acoustic cover versions of four different all-time rock and metal favorites, chosen by the Wacken community. Each song is now being presented by Wacken and the BEYOND THE BLACK YouTube channel every Advent Sunday - first as a world premiere via FULL METAL GAMING’s Twitch live stream, and appearing via the BEYOND THE BLACK YouTube channel afterwards. The symphonic combo already covered SABATON’sTo Hell and Back", VOLBEAT’s “A Warriors Call” and DISTURBED's "Down With The Sickness".
