Formed in 2010, ALFAHANNE's debut release came in 2013 with the arrival of the "Grym" split seven-inch single with Sweden's SHINING.
ALFAHANNE plays what its members describe as "alfapocalyptic rock," which mixes black metal with classic rock and punk, all topped off with some goth influences. It is music that is both powerful and beautiful while at the same time is ugly, and about which the band says: "When you are into it, you don't feel pleasure and you don't feel pain, but you definitely feel."
While ALFAHANNE might be a fairly new name to a lot of people, the band's members, which include Pehr Skioldhammer on vocals and guitar, Fredrik Sööberg on guitar, Niklas Åström on drums and Jimmy Wiberg on bass, have been around the black metal scene since the early '90s, playing in bands like VINTERLAND and early MAZE OF TORMENT.
ALFAHANNE's next live appearance will be on April 16 at the Dark Essence Records Club Night at the Inferno festival in Oslo. They are also set to appear at the Tons Of Rock festival, alongside SABATON, SEPULTURA and SOILWORK, in June.
