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).
