Emerging from cold, darkness, and cradle of metal, three bands have teamed up to bring the true Norwegian Invasion onto European grounds this fall: Keep of Kalessin, Dødheimsgard, and Cadaver. 

 

Unaffected by storms and challenges, Keep of Kalessin has gained a merit list few other metal bands have managed. This includes includes #2 on the Norwegian charts, #3 in Norwegian Eurovision and 2 Norwegian Grammy award nominations as well as countless top reviews and hundreds of shows all across the world. Prepare for extreme, epic, and otherworldly metal at their special 25th anniversary show on this tour. 

 

Starting out as a pure black metal band, Dødheimsgard (also known as DHG) eventually incorporated more electronic, industrial, and experimental elements into their music until they resembled nothing like what they started as, which makes their sound absolutely unique. Do not miss the avant-garde extreme metal from the Norwegian Realm of Death.

 

Anders Odden’s original, extreme metal vision combined with Dirk Verbeuten (Megadeth/ex-Soilwork) drumming and musical companionship resulted in Cadaver’s bold resurrection. Back with a vengeance and hell-bent on destruction, the band is back in business, ready to reign and reproduce their revitalized ferocity on the live stage. 

 

Hungarian black/pagan metallers Bornholm will support the mighty Norwegian trio on the entire tour leg, while the Iranian five-piece protest act Confess and the Cyprus-based heretic black metal Temple of Evil will open the bill on selected dates.
