BLASTFEST 2015 IS EXPANDING!

Posted in Extreme Metal, Metal, metal music, Music, music news, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , on October 11, 2014 by Metal Odyssey

Blastfest - 2015 - promo festival flyer - norway - february

Blastfest has accepted the challenge and has delivered! It is official, Blastfest will be even bigger! With very positive results and excitement of a recent poll, the Bergen, Norway festival have decided 3 days of Metal madness wasn’t enough and have expanded the festival into a 4 day event with a total of 60 bands! That’s 4 days, 4 venues, and 60 bands! Yes. 60 BANDS! The festival is now running from Wednesday February 18th to Saturday February 21st.

And that’s not just the only announcement the festival will make today because just like the recent spate of updates the festival are keeping form and have just confirmed another 4 bands to the already exploding poster! So without further adieu, we are pleased to report the addition of true Norwegian Black Metal veterans Gehenna, British symphonic Back Metallers Hecate Enthroned, Norwegian Death Metal titans Blood Red Throne and death thrashers Wyruz!

GEHENNA

All of our grenade prayers have been answered; the word became flesh! It’s with a shivering voice of the utmost excitement that Blastfest welcome Norwegian Black Metallers Gehenna to the lineup of 2015! These purveyors of the dark arts have long been regarded as one of the most important acts to come out of the Norwegian Black Metal scene in the 90’s. It’s therefore with great delight that the festival welcome them back to Bergen for their first ever Blastfest performance.

HECATE ENTHRONED

Back in the 90’s a band made its way to the forefront of the Symphonic Black Metal scene alongside bands like Cradle of Filth and Dimmu Borgir, receiving praise for their ability to be both extreme in their expression as well as incorporating symphonic elements. We are of course talking about UK act Hecate Enthroned. As of today the band is still going strong, if not turning towards an ever heavier expression with their now Death Metal-infused take on the black arts. Blastfest are very pleased to have them cross the North Sea to perform live in Bergen for the very first time ever, as part of the festival!

BLOOD RED THRONE

If you were asked to name a Norwegian Death Metal band, chances are that the first name to enter into your mind would be that of Blood Red Throne. Ever since the release of their first four-track demo back in 2000, they have been a household name in death metal circles. It’s therefore with great pride that Blastfest welcome the ravenous war machine, the primitive killing machine that is Blood Red Throne into the fold. Be prepared for blood spatter and arterial lust!

Wyruz -  promo band pic - 2014 - #W1320

WYRUZ

Some say Blastfest needed to add more Thrash Metal to the lineup, so they have decided to include prime Death/Thrash act Wyruz! These guys have been going strong for over a decade now, and are dead set on destroying everything at Blastfest 2015.
