Stockholm Slaughter: new band announcement with Rotting Christ and Arcturus!

The Greek titans of Black Metal, Rotting Christ are returning to Scandinavia! The Tolis brothers have been holding the blasphemy flag high for more than 3 decades and next year they are coming to Stockholm for an exclusive performance!

Norrtälje’s Månegarm is the first band to return to Stockholm Slaughter, after having performed during our first edition. The band is currently recording a new album and their performance at Stockholm Slaughter: Akt III will be the band’s official release fest.

There are few bands nowadays that have such a unique sound as Arcturus. The Avant-garde Norwegian metal band is finally due to play on Swedish soil. The quintet, that features members of very well-known Norwegian acts (e.g. Mayhem, Borknagar, ex-Dimmu Borgir, ex-Coventant), has prepared a setlist that contains both old and new material.

The festival line-up is slowly shaping up, but we do have more bands to announce within a few weeks’ time.
Remember that the ticket price goes up for each new line-up addition. Make yourself a favour and get the ticket now!

Schirenc Plays Pungent Stench hits Europe in December / January!

We intend to survive Christmas, after which it’s time to ROCK with Schirenc plays PUNGENT STENCH, CARNATION, THEOTOXIN and IRDORATH!

30 years ago, the world witnessed the birth of one of the most unique bands in Death Metal history, and this year saw the release of Pungent Stench‘s final album – “Smut Kingdom”! In celebration of this memorable occasion, singer/guitarist Martin “El Cochino” Schirenc will gather his cronies and desecrate the holiday season with classics from the past, as well as new material!

Carnation from Belgium will bring you Death Metal the old school way. Promoting their full length debut album “Chapel of Abhorrence”, this will be more than just interesting for fans of Dismember and Cannibal Corpse.

Theotoxin is the Black/Death metal ramgoat from the capital of morbidity. Take off your faith, rearrange your idols and let the godcunts guide you through the states of obscurity, hate and illumination.

Last but not least Irdorath will bring you hell. Expect an intensive and powerful live performance from Austria’s pulsating extreme Black/Thrash Metal specialists.

Exclusive tour merchandise will be available at these shows

Joy to the world, the stench has come!

Izegrim announce new EP ‘Beheaded By Trust’

Dutch death thrash ragers IZEGRIM are releasing a brand new EP entitled ‘Beheaded By Trust’ on March 23rd. The four stunning tracks were recorded, mixed and mastered at Kohlekeller Studio (ABORTED, BENIGHTED,..) in December 2017. The cover artwork came courtesy of Kirill Semenov.

IZEGRIM’s Jeroen comments: “A different studio, concept and a fresh approach on songwriting; this Digipak EP marks a new beginning for us! It will be launched as an old-school DIY-release: straight from us to the fans! However, this absolutely doesn’t mean that we have ended the collaboration with Listenable Records. On the contrary, it is just a taste of great things to come..”

‘Beheaded by Trust’ tracklisting:
1. Beheaded by Trust
2. Stain in the Bloodline
3. Retraumatized
4. Warmonger II

‘Beheaded By Trust’ is the follow-up to 2016’s ‘The Ferryman’s End’, which drew a positively roaring press response worldwide and saw the band touring and sharing stages with the likes of FLOTSAM & JETSAM, KREATOR, ANNIHILATOR, ONSLAUGHT and more.
