Ihsahn to Premiere New Show at Inferno 2020
By lfh on Wednesday, July 17, 2019, 11:24 AM

We can reveal that Ihsahn is currently in the studio putting the final touches on brand new material to be released via Candlelight Records.  

For Inferno 2020, Ihsahn will be perform this new material live for the first time, premiering a specialized set rooted in the blackest corners of his musical palette:   

"The music I’m working on distills the most basic, black metal aesthetics of my music. Keeping to rather traditional arrangements and expressed with Norwegian lyrics, I explore the core elements of my musical background.  These new songs will form the basis for some conceptualized shows, which I shall debut at Inferno in 2020."

More details coming soon…

IhsahnIhsahn comes from Notodden, Norway, where he at the age of thirteen started playing in what developed into one of the world’s most influential black metal bands, Emperor. At only seventeen he recorded and performed “In the Nightside Eclipse”, which has many times been voted as one of the top metal albums of all time. After Emperor released their last album, “Prometheus - The Discipline of Fire & Demise” in 2001, Ihsahn has focused on is solo work and has by now released seven albums under the name Ihsahn. Now Ihsahn will return to Inferno Metal Festival for a special premiere of his new show. Make sure you don’t miss it.

Bölzer and Djerv to Inferno 2020
By lfh on Wednesday, July 10, 2019, 11:44 AM

We are proud to announce that the Norwegian metal band DJERV and Switzerland's black/death metal duo BÖLZER will perform at Inferno Metal Festival 2020!

BölzerAttention came quickly to Switzerland's Bölzer after their 2012 demo “Roman Acupuncture” and subsequent EP “Aura” in 2013 due to their ability to create fascinating black metal melodies and dissonant structures with only two members in the band. Their debut album “Hero” was released in 2016 and was incredibly well received and as such the duo have been invited to play all over the world. Now it is time to finally play at Inferno Metal Festival!



Djerv was formed in 2010 with members from such bands as Animal Alpha, Stonegard and Trelldom. In 2011 they released their self titled debut album to critical acclaim. Their fresh mixture of catchy hard rock and more aggressive metal hit a nerve with their listeners. After only two days in sale the album crashed into the official Norwegian sales charts at an impressive # 8. After some years with heavy touring the band went into hibernation. Now they are back – stronger than ever! After five years the band has returned and will unleash their madness at Inferno Metal Festival 2020!

Mayhem to Headline at Inferno 2020
By lfh on Monday, July 1, 2019, 11:37 AM

We are proud to announce that the legendary Norwegian black metal band MAYHEM will return to Inferno Metal Festival in 2020!

MayhemThe godfathers of Norwegian black metal, The True Mayhem, will return to Inferno Metal Festival at our 20 years edition of the festival. The band has made a huge impact on Norwegian music and stands out as one of the most important black metal bands ever. They started in 1984 and released their legendary "Deathcrush" EP in 1987. In 1994 their hugely influential masterpiece “De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas” saw the light of day. The band has continued to release albums and tour ever since, spreading Norwegian black metal to every corner of the world. Mayhem has a new record in the making that will be released 25th of October 2019. No other band is more fitting to celebrate Inferno's 20 years anniversary than Mayhem!


First Bands for Inferno Metal Festival 2020
By lfh on Friday, May 24, 2019, 8:03 AM

Inferno Metal Festival is proud to announce the first bands for Inferno Metal Festival 2020! Next year marks our 20 years anniversary and we are looking forward to celebrate with all of you. The first bands for 2020 are Kampfar, Ved Buens Ende, Cadaver, Myrkskog, Sylvaine and Valkyrja!

Tickets are available at https://tickets.infernofestival.net/

KampfarKampfar needs no introductions for fans of Norwegian black metal. The band was formed in 1994 and has since then released eight full-length albums and several EPs and singles. In 2015 Kampfar won an award at Spellemannsprisen (Norwegian Grammy) for their album “Profan”. Their latest release, “Ofidians manifest”, has received great reviews and are among the best albums of 2019. Check it out and make sure to see Kampfar live at Inferno Metal Festival 2020!

Ved Buens EndeBack in 1995 something completely different was released and it came from the Norwegian underground black metal scene. This unique masterpiece was called “Written in Waters”. It was no ordinary black metal album – far from it – it was music that no one had heard before. Some people would even argue if it was black metal at all – and some would just call it avant-garde black metal. It does not matter what you call it, it was something vast and distinctive that still feels unique even almost 25 years later. Ved Buens Ende was laid to rest soon after and the band has not released anything after “Written in Waters”. Finally the band are back and will play live at Inferno Metal Festival! With members and ex-members from such bands as Aura Noir, Cadaver, Dødheimsgard, Satyricon, Arcturus, Ulver and Virus.

CadaverCadaver was one of the first Norwegian death metal bands. After several demo tapes between 1988 and 1990, the band released their debut album “Hallucinating Anxiety” in 1990. Two years later they followed up with “...in Pains” before the split-up in 1993. In 1999 founding member Anders Odden (Order, exCeltic Frost, Satyricon) brought the band back to life under the name Cadaver Inc. After a few years the band changed their name back to Cadaver before they disbanded again. Cadaver is now back and a new album will be released. Anders Odden has recruited Megadeth drummer Dirk Verbeuren and they are ready to unleashed more Norwegian death metal upon the world.

MyrkskogNorwegian death metal band Myrkskog was formed in 1993. The band released a couple of demo tapes during the 90s. In 2000 their debut album “Deathmachine” was released – a brutal album that felt like being hit in the face with a shovel. Two years later the follow-up called “Superior Massacre” was released. Now Myrkskog is back and ready to release their fury upon Inferno Metal Festival! Since it will be 20 years ago that “Deathmachine” was released the band will perform the album in its entirety. With members and exmembers from bands like Morbid Angel, Emperor, Odium, Nordjevel and Zyklon.

SylvaineNorwegian multi-instrumentalist Sylvaine has released two albums on Season of Mist; “Wistful” from 2016 and “Atoms Aligned, Coming Undone” from 2018. The Latter was nominated in the metal category at Spellemannsprisen (The Norwegian Grammy). The project serves as an emotional catharsis for the artist, revealing the eternal longing for something more residing within its melodies, capturing the feeling of being trapped and restraint by the human form.

ValkyrjaSwedish black metal band Valkyrja was formed in 2004. Valkyrja quickly gained their reputation as a ferocious live act; a display of carnal lust leaving each stage with the foul scent of death. Since then the band has released four albums of furious black metal violence. Valkyrja is touring as support for Marduk at the moment and will be good and ready for Inferno Metal Festival in 2020.
