NECRONAUT: Video Footage Of SWEDEN ROCK FESTIVAL 'All-Star' Performance

NECRONAUT, the solo project of former DISMEMBER/CARNAGE drummer Fred Estby, performed at this year's edition of the Sweden Rock Festival, which was held June 8-11, 2011 in Slvesborg in southern Sweden.

NECRONAUT is no ordinary project. When the celebrated, eponymous debut album was released last fall, Swedish daily paper Expressen wrote, "If Dave Grohl had dared getting his hands dirty, PROBOT could have turned out as well as former DISMEMBER drummer Fred Estby's solo project".

Death metal veteran Fred Estby gathered some of Sweden's hardest, most uncompromising musicians for a unique appearance at Sweden Rock Festival. According to the band leader, this may very well turn out to be NECRONAUT's only public concert ever.

Musicians that took part in the Sweden Rock Festival show:

* L.G. Petrov (ENTOMBED)
* Fred Estby (ex-DISMEMBER)
* Tomas "Tompa" Lindberg (AT THE GATES)
* Erik Danielsson (WATAIN)
* Tyrant (NIFELHEIM)
* Hellbutcher (NIFELHEIM)
* Janne "JB" Christoffersson (GRAND MAGUS)
* Andreas "Drette" Axelsson (TORMENTED, ex-EDGE OF SANITY)
* David Blomqvist (DISMEMBER)
* Tobias Christiansson (DISMEMBER, GRAVE)
