MAYHEM, FINNTROLL, TAAKE Confirmed For Norway's INFERNO Festival

MAYHEM, FINNTROLL and TAAKE are the first confirmed bands for next year's installment of the Inferno festival, set to take place March 31 - April 3, 2010 in Oslo, Norway.

Few Norwegian music festivals can equal the international status that the Inferno festival now holds. The festival, voted as one of the 10 best in the world by the readers of Terrorizer magazine, continues to grow and is considered the Norwegian metal community's most important gathering.

For four days during Easter, people fly in from England, Sweden, Germany, Italy, the USA and even India to experience extreme metal in Norway's capital.

The festival was started in 2001 by BORKNAGAR guitarist Jens Ryland who wanted the Norwegian metal community to come together for a celebration of extreme music.

Selveste Trond VonWiggo and Charlotte Blowie Christiansen of Norway's Radio Tango 105,8 have uploaded a six-minute YouTube clip (see below) containing photos from this year's Inferno festival, which was held April 8-11, 2009 in Oslo, Norway.
