Tristania will return to singer Kjetil Nordhus' home town Kristiansand on September 9th to headline the Southern Discomfort Metal Festival together with Norwegian avant garde giants Arcturus. The gig marks the return of Tristania after a very successful show during the early stages of the "Rubicon" tour last year.
The festival has already confirmed lots of known faces for the Norwegian metal crowd. In addition to Tristania and Arcturus, former In The Woods frontman Jan Kenneth Transeth will join up with former Green Carnation members Stein Roger Sordal and Tommy Jackson in Soxpan, members from Carpathian Forest and Communic reunite with Opus Forgotten, black metallers Goatlord will also do their first show in a few years, while the prog metallers in Leprous, also known as the backing musicians for black metal legend Ishahn, will present their own critically acclaimed material.
"Kristiansand was brilliant last time we played there, and we're delighted to do be able to return this autumn. The line-up is very different from many other festivals, and marks the return of a whole lot of bands that haven't played together for a while, and of course Arcturus is a scoop for the festival," singer Kjetil Nordhus says.
Las Vegas metallers Spun In Darkness have announced they will be recording a cover of the Goatlord track "Distorted Birth" for an upcoming album. The release will also include five tracks from their previous split with Chronic Infect and a track from their split with Coffins. The as-yet-untitled album is set to be released in early 2010.
