ARTISTS 2024 (A to Z)

AMBUSH (SWE)

In the year 2013 a new band took form in the midst of the dark forests of Småland. Inspired by the great metal heroes of the past Ambush was forged, out of cold raw swedish steel. Since then the band has released three full length-albums and toured South America, North America, Asia and Europe. Their albums “Firestorm” (2014), “Desecrator” (2015) and “Infidel” (2000) have been praised by both critics and metal fans around the globe. The band has quickly taken a steady position as one of the most promising bands of the New Wave of Traditional Heavy Metal, and they are here to stay. Prepare, an Ambush is imminent.

BEWITCHER (USA)

Since their formation in early 2013, BEWITCHER has seen their signature “Black Magick Metal” sound go from humble beginnings to new heights of creativity and wild anthemic fervor. Expect an explosive show of Black/Heavy/Thrash/Speed Metal with a Rock’n’Roll-attitude.

DARK FUNERAL (SWE)

1993 was the year it all started, Lord Ahriman and Blackmoon [1993-1996] founded the hellish war machine we know today as Dark Funeral, one of the strongest Black Metal acts ever. The band quickly established themselves as a band to be reckoned with and since then a lot has happened. The line-up has changed, several great albums have been released and Dark Funeral has toured no less than 45 different countries with acts like Dimmu Borgir, Cannibal Corpse, Deicide, Immortal and many more.

Lord Ahriman still holds the banner high for Swedish Black Metal and where many fail, Ahriman and Dark Funeral continue to achieve success. 30 years and 7 studio albums later, they are still Sweden’s biggest export of Black Metal with well over 1 million followers on social media and have been awarded both P3 Gold and the German Metal Hammer Award for their craftsmanship. With the latest critically acclaimed album ‘We Are the Apocalypse’ the band continues to reach new heights and many claim that this is their strongest album to date.

ENFORCER (SWE)

Many people probably agree that the 80´s delivered the best Heavy Metal music. But quality music never dies, and a new wave of True Heavy Metal has washed over us in recent years. One of the strongest Swedish bands in the genre is Enforcer, who released their first album in 2008 and have until today released 8 albums (including two live albums) where they administer the sound after bands like Anvil, Venom, Judas Priest etc. with that honor.

Enforcer belongs to the group of bands that succeed very well abroad, which has meant that they have hardly played in Sweden for many years, so take the opportunity to see them now on their Tour of Sweden with a date at this year’s festival.

LOCH VOSTOK (Sweden)

LOCH VOSTOK was born in the year 2000 out of necessity to create music that did not exist at the time. Refusing to stagnate. Unwilling to die. Combining raw beauty with complexity and finesse. Sometimes uncomfortable, but never boring. Harsh and soaring multi layered vocals. Pounding, complex and punishing rhythms. Shredalicious solos. Fat choruses and poisonous hooks. Extreme Progressive Metal featuring musicians from bands such as F.K.Ü., One Hour Hell, The Murder of My Sweet and more. New album “Opus Ferox II – Mark of the Beast” out in April 2024.

MÖRK GRYNING (Sweden)

MÖRK GRYNING was founded in Stockholm, Sweden in 1993 by Goth Gorgon and Draakh Kimera. In 1995 they released their debut album “Tusen År Har Gått” via No Fashion Records, an album that by many is considered as one of the milestones of 90’s Swedish Black Metal. The band has since then released five more full-length albums and are working on a new album scheduled for release in 2024.

ORM (Denmark)

Epic/Melodic Black Metal from Denmark established in 2015. One of the band’s unique hallmarks is the epic format with long compositions and simultaneously personal and metaphysical narratives on human existence. When playing live, ORM is a spiritual experience, where the audience is transported into a chaotic realm where the raging ocean waves strike relentlessly at the ragged granite shores, breaking them apart and leaving behind a serene landscape, tranquil in its ravished emptiness. Live, ORM beckons you into their world, asking you to listen intently to discover the delicate detail hidden within their frantic wall of sound.

SKITARG (Sweden)

SKITARG is an extreme metal band that brings you the pleasure of heavy, violent and mean metal combined with humor and theatrical dildoesque madness. The balance between brilliant black/death and sometimes pure creepiness makes this band the boundary-breaking unwinding to bands like In Flames, Dark Tranquility, The Haunted and The Kristet Utseende. The band is known as an exceptional live act through their ability to command people’s attention with clown/corpsepaint, bloody diapers, dildo fights and good fucking metal.
