DE VILLE'S ROCK LOUNGE – Norsk Urskog Stage
The Norwegian metal underground is as always ripe with some new and amazing bands waiting to be discovered! All the way from gloomy doom to biting black metal, from proggy thrash to bone crushing death, from old-school to modern influences... It's about time we made another Norsk Urskog CD sampler! Norsk Urskog is about sharing with the world some of the variety and quality among the lesser known bands in the Norwegian metal underground. In addition it's about giving the bands an opportunity to be heard, and now also seen! This time around we will in addition to spreading our CD sampler at the Inferno Metal Festival, also host our own Norsk Urskog stage at the festival club day! http://thrashmetal.no/norsk_urskog
ROCK IN – South of Heaven Stage
South Of Heaven started up 10 years ago and have established themselves as one of the most important clubs for Norwegian underground bands. South of Heaven will present the stage at Norway's long living metal pub Rock In.
Once again Inferno Metal Festival will use the great venue called Victoria for some of the many artists at our club night. The first band announced to play on this stage for 2014 is the Japanese band called SIGH. The band plays avantgarde black metal and will be perfect in this old building that used to be a theater.
