In Cooperation With:

We are happy to announce that the IMC will, as of 2014, again be a part of the Inferno Metal festival. After a brief stop in 2013, we want to invite the metal industry to the Scandinavian Metal Capital Oslo! The conference will take place at the festival hotel and also at a new venue called Kulturhuset. This really laid back bar is perfectly located between the hotel and the festival venue.

There will be speed meetings, panel debates, open demo listenings, instrument clinics and much, much more.

Program:

CONCERTS NORWAY PRESENTS INFERNO WELCOMING PARTY!
Food, drinks, music and good times in Rockefeller Music Hall Lounge Wednesday evening!

MUSIC NORWAY PRESENTS INFERNO SPEED MEETINGS!
Hook up with old acquaintances and make new ones during Wednesday afternoon! This is by invitation only.

IMC ARTISTS AND DELEGATE LOUNGE AT KULTURHUSET
This will be the natural meeting point for all delegates and artists. Here you can find meeting rooms, a main-stage and free Wi-fi and coffee from Thursday to Saturday between 12.00 to 17.00. There will also be stands by Negative Vibe Records, Unborn Productions and Demonhood.

MØST AND IMC PROUDLY PRESENTS: SONG WRITER WORKSHOP WITH SATYR
Satyricon is one of the most important and acclaimed bands within the Norwegian black metal scene. Many of their albums are considered as classics to day and are milestones in black metal history. Satyricon was the first Norwegian black metal band to join a multi-national record label, and has won several awards including the Norwegian Grammy, Alarm award and The Oslo Award. Their newest album was released yesteryear and went straight to number one on the Norwegian national album charts.

Satyr tells us: "For over 20 years I have been writing albums and touring the world. It would be great if some of that experience could be useful to other song writers who wish to continue to develop as writers. We all learn from each other and I look forward to talking song writing, arrangements and sonics with you."

DRUM CLINIC WITH FROST (SATYRICON / 1349)
Kjetil Haraldstad, better known only as Frost, will do a drum clinic at the festival hotel during Inferno. This will be a unique chance to get a close-up with one of the giants in Norwegian Black Metal! He is generally regarded as one of the most proficient and intense drummers in the black metal scene, and has contributed on a number of epic records since the early nineties. Needless to say, we at IMC is extremely happy that Frost will be part of this years conference.

PRIDE, PREJUDICE AND SHAME WRAPPED IN BLASPHEMY: THE MANY FACETS OF BLACK METAL FANDOM
Dr. Vivek Venkatesh will talk about the results of several years of collaborative, interdisciplinary research on the distinct ways in which the identities of members of the global black metal scene are developed and propagated. The presentation will draw on a range of interviews with fans, musicians, journalists and record store owners, as well as observations at concerts and festivals from around the world. Vivek will provide a description of how black metal scene members have created a unique identity which values the individual over the group, flirts with xenophobia, engages in discourse around current political structures, thrives on blasphemy and rejects the more communal aspects of other forms of extreme metal such as death metal or thrash metal.

WORKSHOP WITH EINAR KVITRAFN SELVIG (WARDRUNA)
In the workshop Einar will speak about his approach to music and the extensive creative concept behind Wardruna's ongoing "Runaljod" trilogy as well as his approach and study of the runes and other Norse esoteric arts. He will demonstrate a selection of the oldest Nordic instruments, play some fully acoustic Wardruna music and there will also be opportunities for questions from the audience.

AN ARTISTS GUIDE TO THE WHYS, THE HOWS AND THE DON'TS OF SOCIAL MEDIA
Jens F. Rydland, guitarist in Borknagar and one of the founders of Inferno Metal Festival, will talk about how the Social Media develops the Music Industry and what kind of impact this has on the everyday life of an Artist. Ryland has used the Internet for marketing since 1998, taken classes and been an active Blogger. In Borknagar he has been able to test theories and new channels directly with a large audience and worldwide following.

IMC BOAT TRIP IN THE OSLO FJORD
Inferno would like to welcome IMC delegates to set sail the last day of the Inferno Festival!
