Good day, friends and enemies!


Unfortunately Testimony will have to cancel their MMF performance, but we hope to see them around some other place anyway.

Instead we have managed to book a quite awesome replacement, namely Kings of the Sidewalk, GEHENNAH! One of the first and most importan Scandinavian black/thrash combos, with a number of partyhits made in hell, such as Bitch With a Bullet Belt, Piss off I’m Drinking and Say Hello to Mr. Fist. GEHENNAH har basically called it quits, but they’ve decided to get back together to do special occations and selected shows, such as Metal Merchants Festival. It’s time to raise your glass and yell!



Tickets are going at steady speed, and even though we seldom do this, it’s now time to advise people to get their tickets for the festival at www.billettservice.no . The date and venue is still January 28th and 29th on John Dee, and the billing is as follows:
