ENTOMBED A.D. (John Dee – Sunday April 4th)
If you are reading this you properly already know about Entombed A.D. – the deadly sonic force fronted by former Nihilist and Entombed vocalist L-G Petrov. Inspired by such diverse acts as Autopsy, Motörhead, Discharge and Kiss, Entombed A.D is not afraid to think outside the coffin, resulting in a style some fans calls death ’n’ roll. Though, in the end it was, is and will just be a band with a style and impact entirely their own. With three full-length albums released under the new persona – ”Back to the Front”, ”Dead Dawn” and “Bowels of Earth” – Entombed A.D have proved their place as the rightful kings of death ’n’ roll. This will be their first time at Inferno Metal Festival!
Nyrst means “northernmost” in Icelandic and the band holds true to its name when it comes to delivering an incredibly cold, stark and barren soundscape. With lyrics depicting old horror literature with cosmic undertones and very mystic and haunting live performances. The band was formed in 2013 and after 3 years of experience the band released their first demo which received much praise. Their debut album “Orsök” led to Nyrst landing a contract in late 2019 with renowned and well respected label, Dark Essence Records. Influenced by bands such as Emperor, Darkthrone, Bathory and Primordial the band delivers a diverse and epic scope of writing with massive and broad-ranging vocals delivered by their frontman Snæbjörn.
The Norwegian black metal band Isvind was formed in 1992. The band released several demos and an album before the band stopped in 1997 and was more or less dead until 2010 when the duo again entered the studio to record their second full-length. After that, touring and recording became routine and the band has since released “Daumyra” and “Gud”. Today the band is a four piece unit that will release all hell at Rock In during Inferno Metal Festival 2021!
From the Vastland is a black metal band which started out by Sina in late 2010 in Iran. After moving to Norway From the Vastland started to work with well-known Norwegian musicians such as Vyl (Whoredome Rife, Ex-Keep of Kalessin, Gorgoroth), Tjalve (Horizon Ablaze, Svartelder, Ex-1349, Den Saakaldte), Spektre (Gaahls Wyrd, Svartelder, Horizon Ablaze) and Destruchtor (Nordjevel, Myrkskog, Ex-Morbid Angel). Music and lyrics are influenced by Persian history and mythology, ancient world, epic stories of good and evil, myths and legends combined with atmospheric, blast-beating, old school black metal with a slight touch of oriental influences. The band has released 7 albums by now. In 2014 From The Vastland was nominated for global metal band at Metal Hammer Golden Gods Award. Sina and the band is also featured in the Norwegian documentary film about black metal called Blackhearts.
REGARDE LES HOMMES TOMBER (Vaterland – Friday April 2nd)
France’s Regarde Les Hommes Tomber started in 2013 with a massive self-titled album released through Les Acteurs De L’Ombre Productions. The band instantly imprinted its vision in metal community: an epic blend of atmospheric black metal, sludge and death metal spreading out a dark universe inspired by the sacred scriptures. In 2015 “Exile” came out and intensified quintet music, bringing in more extreme influences and developing a dramatic sense of narration through cunningly balanced songs. Regarde Les Hommes Tomber earned respect from the metal community with intense and ritualistic live shows. Regarde Les Hommes Tomber recently joined force with Season Of Mist to release the third part of their triptych called “Ascension”.
Ulvehyrde became an entity in 2018. The music is fundamental mid-tempo black metal based upon old, dark, Norwegian history. The band consists of past and present members from Beastcraft, Sarkom, Angst Skvadron, Voluspaa and Paul Di’Anno. Ulvehyre is currently working on the finishing tracks for their 2020 album, “Englemakersken”, which will be licensed through several labels worldwide. Ulvehyrde live is a constellation of darkness, blood and fire, creating a visual and audible double-edged sword of eerie atmosphere and ruthless aggression.
Zifir released their debut album “You Must Come with Us” in 2007. The album reflects the concept of the band’s black metal vision and the whole content supports this vision with all its instruments where recording, mix, mastering and artwork was made by the band. The band signed with Dunkelkunst Productions for their second album, titled “Protest Against Humanity”, in 2011. In 2016 when Zifir have finished recording and signed a deal with Duplicate Records. Finally, new album entitled “Kingdom of Nothingness” was released in 2017 in CD and LP format. Their fourth full length album “Demoniac Ethics” was released on January 2020 via Duplicate Records.
