Norway's HAMMERSLAG VINTERBLOT Festival To Take Place This Month

Metalunderground.com is sponsoring Norway's Hammerslag Vinterblot festival for the second year in a row. The festival, which is to take place December 15-16, 2006, is a two-day showcase of extreme black, death and grind metal bands.

The two-day extreme metal festival, in its third year, takes place in Norway's oldest city, Tønsberg (est. 871). Friday night's show will be held at Rivals Rockpub and Saturday's at Eikhallen, a sports arena in Tønsberg. The Hammerslag Vinterblot festival features performances by some of Norway's best as well as underground black metal, death metal, thrash, grindcore and doom metal bands, boasting more than nine confirmed bands including ZYKLON, KAMPFAR, FRAMFERD, CUTTHROAT, MALSAIN, SARKOM, ABOMINAT, DEAD MAN'S HAND, and PANDEMI.

Commented the festival's organizer, Bjørn Almar Rolstad Johansen: "This year's festival is a much bigger production than in past years. The festival has outgrown the ancient church where it was held the past two years and has now moved to a bigger venue. We are thrilled that all of the hard work that has been put into Hammerslag is paying off and that this year we will be able to celebrate the darkest time of the year with even more metalheads."

Tickets for the Hammerslag Vinterblot festival can be purchased at this location or at the door.
