MetalUnderground.com Sponsors Hammerslag 2006 Fest

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

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 with others in negotiation.

"Once again, we're happy to be part of the Hammerslag Festival and bring word of some excellent Norwegian and European extreme metal bands to our predominantly American readership," said Metalunderground.com owner Doug Gibson. "I'm even more excited this year to have a local journalist reporting directly from the festival for Metalunderground.com."

"Promotion of this event to an American audience benefits the Hammerslag Vinterblot Festival, the Norwegian Extreme Metal Scene, and metalheads alike," commented the festival's organizer, Bjørn Almar Rolstad Johansen. "We hope to bring the US and Europe closer together in the metal community so we can share all the great music being made in both continents. 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 http://www.bilettservice.no/ or at the door.

In the coming weeks leading up to Hammerslag Vinterblot 2007, we'll be posting some interviews with these bands on the bill.

Hammerslag Vinterblot 2006 Details Announced

Details for this year's Hammerslagfestival Vinterblot 2006 are solidifying. There are some changes to the location from last year - it will of course still be unleashed in Tønsberg, Norways oldest city, and it is still the old Norwegian heathen tradition that will be celebrated, but due to space problems it will form and take place at "Støperiet" (an old industrial hall used to cast iron), which has been modernised for concerts and theatrical shows. There will now be a bigger bar and lots of space for metalheads from around the world. "Støperiet" is placed across the canal in the heart of Tønsberg, where the majority of the City`s bars and hotels are located.

Hammerslag Fest will be opened in the bar "RIVALS" on Friday, December 15, 2006. There are still bands to be anounced, but so far deadmanshand (thrash-metal from Tønsberg/Oslo) and Pandemi have been confirmed to play the opening night with more bands to be announced.

Saturday, December 16's portion of the festival will be at held at "Støperiet" with the longest lineup ever:

FRAMFERD (local band,symphonic black metal)
DEAD MAN'S HAND (Norwegian thrash metal)
MALSAIN (Black/Dark Metal from Bergen)
SARKOM (Black metal)
CUTTHROAT (local Death/Grind/Doom Metal)
KAMPFAR (Black metal)
ZYKLON (Death metal)

Framferd is a well known band on Hammerslagfestival Vinterblot and the guys have promised to play some new material this year from the coming album in 2007 (this is not from the coming Djevelskap EP thats planed this fall).

No doubt you've noticed the Hammerslag Festival logo on our home page. But now I can announce that Metalunderground.com is an official sponsor of Norway's Hammerslag Festival. The festival, which is to take place on December 16 and 17, 2005, is a two-day showcase of extreme black, death and grind metal bands. Sponsorship of the Hammerslag festival fits with Metalunderground.com's mission of promoting underground heavy metal.

The two-day extreme metal festival, in its second year, takes place in Norway's oldest city, Tønsberg (est. 871).

The festival boasts more than nine confirmed bands including Tsjuder, Myrkskog, Svartahrid, Grand Alchemist, Framferd, Draugstafur, Mindgrinder, and She Said Destroy with more in negotiations.

"The Hammerslag Festival is the ideal metal festival for Metalunderground.com to announce its first sponsorship deal with," said Metalunderground.com owner Doug Gibson. "With our large American readership, there is not a more fitting genre of metal to bring to their attention than Norwegian black metal. Every reader that discovers a new metal band that they like through Metalunderground.com reinforces why I started this website in the first place."

"Promotion of this event to an American audience benefits Hammerslag Festival, the Norwegian Extreme Metal Scene, and metalheads alike," said the festival's organizer, Bjørn Almar Rolstad Johansen. "The bands as well as the experience of a black metal festival at the old church are quite special as well, considering the theme of the fest."
