Urfaust, Svarttjern and Shakma Ready for Inferno 2019
By lfh on Wednesday, August 8, 2018, 11:37 AM

URFAUST, SVARTTJERN AND SHAKMA TO INFERNO FESTIVAL 2019 The Dutch ambient black metal band URFAUST is confirmed to Inferno Metal Festival 2019, together with the Norwegian black metal band SVARTTJERN and the newcomers, thrash metal band SHAKMA from Haugesund.

UrfaustFrom the Netherlands we give you Urfaust. This odd duo that combines black metal with ambient noise and slow drone music. Urfaust is not easy on the ear – but has after almost two decades gained a huge cult of followers. Earlier this year the band released their fifth record; “The Constellatory Practice”. So we welcome the Dutchmen to Inferno Metal Festival for the very first time.

SvarttjernSvarttjern is a Norwegian black metal band that started in 2003 and has released four albums. With members and ex-members from bands like Carpathian Forest, Magister Templi, Bloodsworn and Endezzma the band has a lot of experience also outside of Svarttjern. Svarttjern is keeping it old school and the old spirit of Norwegian black metal is very much alive within this band.

ShakmaShakma released their debut album “House of Possession” earlier this year. A album that proves that Shakma is one of the best newcomers within Norwegian thrash metal. Shakma hails from Haugesund, on the west coast of Norway, and follows other great Norwegian black thrash bands like Aura Noir, Nekromantheon and Deathhammer. With a huge amount of fury this band will blow you away. Just check 'em out!

Cult of FireCult of Fire was formed in the Czech Republic in 2010. Since then the band has released two studio albums, one live album and four EPs. Their music style is epic and powerful black metal. The band has never before played in Oslo, so be sure to catch their show when they come to Inferno Metal Festival for the first time.




SkogenSkogen is a Swedish black metal band. In 2019 the band will have their 10 years anniversary. During their lifespan Skogen has released five studio albums. The latest one is “Skuggorna kallar” released earlier this year. Skogen means “The Forest” in both Norwegian and Swedish. Despite being our neighbors – Skogen has only been to Norway once before, so be sure to check 'em out at Inferno 2019.

Carach Angren and Misþyrming are Ready for Inferno 2019
By lfh on Thursday, June 28, 2018, 11:22 AM

The Dutch horror black metal band Carach Angren and the Icelandic black metal outfit Misþyrming are both confirmed for Inferno Metal Festival 2019.

Carach AngrenGet ready for some horrific ghost stories when the Dutch symphonic black metal band Carach Angren returns to Inferno Metal Festival. The band released their fifth album yesteryear called “Dance and Laugh Amongst the Rotten”. With a brand new album under the belt Carach Angren have pushed their unashamedly theatric style to a new intense height. Something you can experience up close when the band performs at Inferno Metal Festival 2019!


MistyrmingBefore releasing their one and only album “Söngvar elds og óreiðu” in 2015 – Misþyrming did a completely packed show at Inferno Metal Festival 2015. This was the band's first gig outside of Iceland – where the band hails from. Since then the band has performed at most of the big festivals in Europe – now it is time to return to where it all started – at Inferno Metal Festival!

1349, Tribulation and Valkyrja added to our 2019 Lineup
By lfh on Wednesday, June 13, 2018, 1:55 PM

More bands are ready to be announced for the 19th edition of the iconic Inferno Metal Festival. Prepare yourself for the Norwegian black metal band 1349, the Swedish blackened heavy metal band TRIBULATION and Sweden's black metal outfit VALKYRJA.

1349The Norwegian black metal band 1349 released their first demo tape twenty years ago in 1998. Since then the foursome has released six furious albums of hatred and darkness. The band will return to Inferno Metal Festival with a blast in 2019. Release the Hellfire upon us all.

TribulationSweden's Tribulation is one of the most exiting bands coming from our neighbors in the east nowadays. Their third full-length album, “Children of the Night”, took the world by its horns when it was released by Century Media Records in 2015. Tribulation recently released their new album “Down Below” which has by many critics been listed as a good candidate for album of the year. It's been eight years since Tribulation played at our club day in 2010. It is time for a return!

ValkyrjaThe Swedish black metal band Valkyrja was created in 2004 with the intention to channel violence, deprivation and loath through the extraordinary potent audio channel. After three critically acclaimed albums Valkyrja has started to record their next masterpiece. The album is expected to be out on the street within this year. This will be the swedes first appearance at Inferno Metal Festival!

First Bands Announced for Inferno 2019
By lfh on Saturday, May 5, 2018, 11:04 AM

After a successful Inferno Metal Festival in 2018 we are already ready to give you more! We have picked out some amazing acts for next year's festival. With great pride we announce the first bands to Inferno Metal Festival 2019: Taake, Vomitory, Gaahls Wyrd, Batushka, Archgoat, The Ruins of Beverast, Der Weg Einer Freiheit and Avast


TaakeThe Norwegian black metal band Taake started under the moniker Thule back in 1993. Band founder Hoest then changed the name to Taake (the Norwegian word for "fog") in 1995 because he wanted the name to reflect the genuine Norwegian spirit of his music and lyrics. The band has since then released seven albums. With the newly released “Kong Vinter” (“King Winter”), it’s about time that Hoest and his cohorts return to Inferno Festival 2019 to teach the audience a lesson in True Norwegian Black Metal.

VomitoryFor 24 years Swedish death metal legends Vomitory laid waste to stages all over the world and released eight successful albums before laying down their arms in 2013. In 2017 they reunited for one show at Summer Breeze Festival to honor an old friend. The band had such a good time playing again that the thought of future battles together started to grow like a seed in blood drenched soil. 2019 will mark the 30th anniversary
of Vomitory's supreme death metal and prove to be the perfect year to celebrate at Inferno Metal Festival.
Death Metal Supremacy!

Gaahls WyrdNorwegian black metal band Gaahls Wyrd was formed by Gaahl – a man most famous as the former vocalist of Gorgoroth and Good Seed. Judging by the bands Facebook page, it seems like Gaahl et al will be able to expand their setlist with own songs. Until now they’ve done a great mix of Gorgoroth, God Seed and Trelldom tracks, and at Inferno Festival 2019 we can surely expect a few more from these Gaahl-related bands in addition to the expected new songs. A new album is in the making and will hopefully be released
before Inferno Metal Festival 2019!




BatushkaBatushka is a black metal band from Poland. The band has an unique sound as they are blending together traditional black metal with eastern orthodox chants and melodies. Their name means "father" and is used to address an Eastern Orthodox priest. When the band play live they are usually a stronghold of eight people on stage. Batushka was supposed to play already at Inferno 2018 – but had to delay their performed to the next Inferno Metal Festival. This will be an amazing gig by one of the most demanded bands for Inferno in recent years.

ArchgoatBlack metal band Archgoat are from Finland and was formed in 1989. The band had a long break between 1993 and 2004, but has since then served the world brutal filthy black metal that hits listeners like a fist in the face. The band has rarely been in Norway and this will be the first time the band performs at Inferno Metal Festival.


The Ruins of BeverastAfter five albums and some EP/splits, the German multi-musician Alexander von Meilenwald will bring his music to Norway again. Together with the hired guns, The Ruins Of Beverast will strike upon us with their doomish black metal, with songs that vary a lot and with an atmosphere of death and doom. 15 years of doom, 15 years of death and 15 years of massive black/doom metal. At Inferno Festival 2019, The Ruins Of Beverast will do their best to make Easter another triumph of death!

Der Weg Einer FreiheitYou should not judge a band by its name, because you probably don’t know what road to freedom they use. The German black metallers have released four albums, with a variety of tracks, both in expression and running time. At Inferno Festival 2019, you will get a dose of black metal with tracks lasting from 4 minutes to 13+ minutes, always varied and always moving forward, hopefully making you free!

AvastAvast hails from Stavanger, Norway, and fuses the aesthetics of black metal with the atmospherics of postrock to create a soundscape that is both breathtaking and mesmerizing. Since starting out in 2015, the band has released a two track EP, been on one European tour, and the last year has been spent in the studio, recording their debut album “Mother Culture”, scheduled for a fall release. “Mother Culture” is a concept album that examinates the myths on which modern civilization rests upon. The record addresses the potential for a global catastrophe, and is based on the philosophical novel Ishmael by Daniel Quinn.
