Cannibal Corpse, Odium, Harakiri for the Sky, Djevel, Nekromantheon, Darvaza, Nervosa, Lili
Refrain, Svalbard, Dwaal and Mutilated Tyrant.
American death metal band Cannibal Corpse need no introduction for metal fans – they are one of the
best selling death metal bands of all time. Classics albums like “Eaten Back to Life”, “Butchered at Birth”,
“Tomb of the Mutilated” and “The Bleeding” are regarded as landmarks in death metal history! The band
has continued to make great records all their career and their latest album “Violence Unimagined” shows
a band that is still hungry for blood! This will be Cannibal Corpse first time at Inferno Metal Festival and
we can’t wait to see them tear Rockefeller apart!

Norwegian symphonic black metal band Odium started in 1994. The band released only one album – “The
Sad Realm of the Stars” in 1998. The members went on to play in several different bands like Myrkskog,
Emperor, Grimfist and Funeral. In 2018 Odium performed at Inferno Metal Festival to celebrate the
anniversary of “The Sad Realm Of The Stars”. Now they are back for another great gig!

Austrian duo Harakiri for the Sky have been taking black metal into new territories ever since their inception
in 2011. Their debut album established a sound that was unique and over the years the band has created
post-black metal that is as melancholic as it is aggressive. This will be Harakiri for the Sky first time ever
in Oslo and at Inferno Metal Festival!

Djevel is a band dedicated to the atmosphere around the early days of classic Norwegian Black Metal –
with a raw and unpolished sound, mixed with haunting melodic passages that make their sound unique
compared to most of today’s bands in the genre. Djevel has released several of great albums since 2011
and their latest masterpiece “Tanker som rir natten” even won a Norwegian Grammy Award called
Spellemannsprisen in 2022.

Norwegian thrash metal band Nekromantheon are among Norway’s finest within the genre. The band
took the scene by storm when they released the first two albums in 2010 and 2012. Finally in 2021 the band
released their third album “Visions of Trismegistos” to great acclaim. This means it’s time to bring the band
back to Inferno Metal Festival!
Italian-Norwegian duo Darvaza serves pure and raw black metal. The two members can also be found
in several other acts like Chaos Invocation, Deathrow, Behexen, Beyond Man and Mare. Darvaza has
released several EPs before their debut album “Ascending into Perdition” was released in 2022.
All female Brazilian thrash metal band Nervosa has released several amazing albums since their start
in 2012. Their latest album “Perpetual Chaos” was released in 2021 and is a beast of an album. Their
aggressive style of thrash metal is pure fury to all senses and they really know out to put on a great show.
This will be Nervosa’s first time at Inferno Metal Festival!
Lili Refrain is a musician based in Rome-Italy. Since 2007, she has a solo project in which she uses electric
guitar, vocals, percussions, synth and loops in real time, without using any computer or pre-recorded
tracks. Her masterful technique and her refined taste, lead the listener through the maze of an unforgettable
act beyond the boundaries of any genre. This will be Lili Refrain first time at Inferno Metal Festival.
Svalbard are an English post-metal band from Bristol, formed in 2011. The mix several music genres like
alternative, post-metal, post-hardcore, black metal and occasionally post-rock and hardcore. Metal
Hammer wrote about the band: “one of the brightest sparks in UK hardcore”. This will be the band’s first
appearance at Inferno Metal Festival!
Norwegian sludge doom metal six piece band Dwaal was formed in 2014. Their distinct blend of sludge,
doom and post-metal is a dense, hypnotic wall of sound that alternates between suffocating heaviness and
trance-inducing melancholy. Gloomy riffs, epic atmospheres and despairing vocals, punctuated every so
often by minimalistic lo-fi melodies. First time at Inferno Metal Festival!
Mutilated Tyrant is a Native American black metal band from the Navajo Nation. You might have seen this
band in the excellent NRK documentary “UXA – Thomas Seltzers Amerika”. We are happy to bring this
awesome band to Norway for the very first time!
