The lineup announcements had to come to an end eventually and Blastfest have now revealed the final 3 bands to the main lineup. But that’s not to say what you see on the burgeoning Blastfest poster is all that’s happening. No, no, no, there will be more!
There’s already a lineup that would bring tears to the eyes of even the toughest metalhead with bands such as Demilich, Satyricon, Decapitated, Paradise Lost, At The Gates & Moonsorrow... and just last week a cruise up the Norwegian fjords with live bands was announced as part of the first days festivities. We still have to hear more… the clinics, the stand up comedy, the exhibitions, and lots more have yet to be revealed!
For now, let’s leave this here… Sweden’s Uppsala upstarts, the black metal powerhouse, the entity of its own who released possibly their best work to date just last year with ‘The Hunt’, yes, the mighty Watain have been announced as another Blastfest 2015 headliner. The festival has also welcomed Austria’s sickest death metal export Schrinec Plays Pungent Stench and Bergens blackened deaththrash horde Grimfist.
Watain – Are you sworn to the black? Well, then you’ll be happy to hear that the final Blastfest headliner for the sophomore edition of the festival will be none other than the Swedish legions of the black light, Watain! Prepare yourself for fire, brimstone, and the real deal; carcasses, blood, foul stench and hatred in abundance. Lawless darkness commence!
Schrinec Plays Pungent Stench – Blastfest bring you a nice little platter of splatter! Schrinec Does Pungent Stench! They will be playing the twisted material from the Austrian cult band’s first three albums. Basically there’s going to be some proper old school death metal coming your way.
Grimfist – Norwegian Grimfist released two highly-acclaimed albums around the turn of the century, and seemed to disappear into obscurity not long after. But lately, they’ve been at it again, flying high the banner of brutality! At Blastfest 2015 they will be doing their first show in eight years with an as-of-yet still undisclosed new lineup. You’re probably in for yet another all-star Norwegian ensemble!
