INFERNO 2020 – new names announced
Inferno 2020: Vreid, Whoredom Rife and 1914
Inferno Metal Festival porudly announces that the mighty Norwegian sognametal band VREID will return to Inferno Metal Festival in 2020! Also returning to the festival is Nidrosian black metal outfit WHOREDOM RIFE and for the very first time Ukraine’s best hidden secret, 1914, will hit Norway with their epic war themed blackened death metal!
The Norwegian metal brigade rose from the ashes of Windir after the tragic perishing of the "Sognametal" legends with the declared mission of exploring new musical paths. The band has now released eight great albums and is known for their amazing live shows. Vreid’s newest masterpiece is "Lifehunger" which was released in 2018. The album proved that the band is still hungry and better then ever. It has been ten years since Vreid performed at Inferno Metal Festival – so we are happy to have Vreid back at Inferno Metal Festival in 2020! They promise us a massive show – so don’t miss out when Vreid return to Inferno!
Whoredom Rife was forged in silence during 2013 and 2014 in the outskirts of Nidaros, Norway. The band was founded by V. Einride and K.R in 2014, based on new ideas and ideas dating back as far as the early nineties. The concept behind the band is to breathe new life into the art form and lifestyle that we know as True Norwegian Black Metal. Since 2017 the band has released the critical acclaimed "Nid – Hymner av hat" and will now tour together with Behemoth. Whoredom Rife performed at our club night at Inferno Metal Festival in 2017 and the demand for a return to the festival has been high!
Ukrainian blackened death doom metal band 1914 took the metal community by storm when they released "The Blind Leading the Blind" last year. The album was epic and hit many a best of-list in 2018. As their name suggest, 1914, is exclusively themed around World War I. 1914 has never played before in any of the Nordic countries and we are excited to bring the band to Norway for the very first time!
