We have a couple of festival updates to share with you:


I’ve been gleefully following the line-up announcements for next year’s edition of the Eistnaflug festival in Iceland. With each new announcement I’ve wondered to myself, “How can they top this?!?” — and then they do.

Before last week the festival was already going to be headlined by Behemoth, Enslaved, and Godflesh, and then last week the organizers added Carcass to the top of the bill. In addition, they announced that Norway’s Kvelertak will be appearing — as well as eight additional Icelandic bands.

The final line-up is as follows, and it’s ridiculously good. Tickets are now on sale here. For further info, visit these links:

The sixth installment of the Trondheim Metal Fest will be taking place on October 1-3, 2015, at the Clarion Hotel in Trondheim, Norway. The organizers have announced the initial line-up of bands (more will be added), and it’s an eclectic list, to say the least, but one that I thought was worth sharing around:

Korpiklaani (Finland)
Primordial (Ireland)
Evile (UK)
Tankard (Germany)
Rotting Christ (Greece)
Circus Maximus (Norway)
