NAGLFAR and SINISTRO added to INFERNO FESTIVAL 2018 lineup
Swedish melodic black metal band NAGLFAR and Portugal’s doom metal band SINISTRO are confirmed for Inferno Metal Festival 2018!
Naglfar was formed in 1992 in Umeå, Sweden, and is one of the early Swedish black metal bands. Their debut album “Vittra” is regarded as a classic and a milestone in Swedish extreme metal. With their more melodic style of black metal, that band has often been compared to fellow Swedish acts like Dissection and Sacramentum. Naglfar is still going strong and gave us an amazing gig at Inferno Metal Festival 2015 – so we welcome the Swedes back to Norway in 2018!
Sinistro is a strong entity driven by five individuals from distinct art circles from Lisbon in Portugal. The band features an actress, a music producer, and instrumentalists, who have followed this path for over 20 years as part of other acts such as We Are The Damned, Besta and Mourning Lenore. Their self-titled debut album, which was released in 2012, delivers elegant doom rock combined with a soundtrack like approach that harvested praise from both public and critics alike. On Sinistro’s next effort, “Cidade”, they welcomed singer Patrícia Andrade on board and went on to explore a massive wall of guitars combined with gritty keyboard layers and an emotional vocal performance. Their latest album “Semente” was released last year and the band will do a massive tour together with death doom-legends Paradise Lost later this year. We welcome Sinistro to Inferno Metal Festival for the very first time.
