First Bands Ready for 2018: Carpathian Forest, Dark Funeral, Napalm Death, Memoriam and Vanhelgd
By lfh on Monday, May 8, 2017, 11:00 AM

Inferno Metal Festival 2017 was a good year with great feedback from the audience, media and artists. We are now very exited to announce the first bands for Inferno Metal Festival 2018. We present to you Carpathian Forest, Dark Funeral, Napalm Death, Memoriam and Vanhelgd!  

Carpathian ForestThe Norwegian black metal band Carpathian Forest are back! It's been more than ten years since we last heard from this mighty black metal band. Now they are back to release more evil upon the world. Of course their Norwegian return will all happen at Inferno Metal Festival 2018! “Black Shining Leather”, “Strange Old Brew” and “Defending the Throne of Evil” are all classics that will be amazing to hear live at Inferno Metal Festival 2018! https://www.facebook.com/carpathianforest/






Dark FuneralThe Swedish black metal outfit Dark Funeral started up in 1993. With several classic albums under the belt, like “The Secrets of the Black Arts”, “Vobiscum Satanas” and “Diabolis Interium”, the band is regarded as one of Sweden's best black metal bands. Their latest album was released last year and is called “Where Shadows Forever Reign”. A great record that makes Dark Funeral worthy of a return to Inferno Metal Festival! https://www.facebook.com/darkfuneral/



Napalm DeathNapalm Death are the Godfathers of grindcore. Listening to their classic “Scum” back in 1987 people was blown away. Never has anybody heard that kind of brutal music before. Even today, 30 years after the release of their debut album, Napalm Death is still one of the most brutal bands there is out there. The legends have been at Inferno Metal Festival once before and it is about time they return to the festival. https://www.facebook.com/officialnapalmdeath/



MemoriamForged from the ashes of Bolt Thrower, and in tribute to their late drummer Martin Kears, Memoriam is a brand new death metal band that has risen to do it the old school way. The band consists of Bolt Thrower ex-members Karl Willetts on vocal and Andrew Whale on drums. Together they have joined forces with ex-Cerebral Fix guitar player Scott Fairfax and bassist Frank Healy from Benediction and Sacrilege. Memoriam released their debut album “For the Fallen” on Nuclear Blast last year to great critical acclaim and is regarded as one of the best death metal albums of the last couple of years.

VanhelgdThe Swedish death metallers Vanhelgd will bring the Swedish death metal sound to Inferno Metal Festival 2018. That sound made by
Boss HM-2 pedal and the stench of rotting corpses. The band has by now released four albums of death metal monstrosity and consist of members and ex-members from such bands as King of Asgard, Ocean Chief, Ceremonial Execution and Thy Primordial. If you like your death metal rotten to the core – Vanhelgd is a band you can't miss.

Inferno Metal Festival 2017 is now over and we hope all the people attending the festival had a great time.

We would like to thank our volunteers and crew, Rockefeller crew, partners, sponsors, press, photographers, exhibitors, stands, all the artists as well as everybody else that made this festival so special. Last but not least; we would like to thank all the metal fans that took part of Inferno Metal Festival 2017. Without you this would not be possible.

In regards to the unfortunate premature end to the Abbath concert - expect statements to appear in the coming days.
