INFERNO METAL FESTIVAL 2025 – first bands announced

Inferno Metal Festival announces the first batch of artists for the 2025 festival. Next year’s festival will take place during Easter in Oslo, Norway, from the 17th to the 20th of April, 2025. Confirmed are 1349, Blood Incantation, Aeternus, Seth, Abyssic, Spectral Wound, Angist, Bythos, Syn,

and Violent Magic Orchestra. More artists will be announced soon!

Inferno Metal Festival started in 2001 – and is the longest-running metal festival in Norway – and one of the most important extreme metal festivals in the world. Showcasing the best of Norwegian metal and bringing acts from all over the world to Oslo, it is the place to be every Easter.

The Norwegian black metal band 1349 has made a mark on the Norwegian black metal scene during their longstanding career. Earlier this year, they released the single ”Ash of Ages,” indicating that 1349 is back in full force with more malevolence. Whatever it may be, you can see it at Inferno Metal Festival 2025!

Blood Incantation blend psychedelic elements into their death metal and have gained a lot of recognition with ”Hidden History of the Human Race”. With a new album coming soon and their first ever show at Inferno, this will be one for the books.

Norwegian Aeternus are one of the pioneers of dark metal, combining black metal with death metal, and hints of classical music as well as folk music. The band members have extensive experience, having played in bands like Gorgoroth,

Taake, Gaahls Wyrd, Hellbutcher, and Phantom Fire. The latest album is called ”Philosopher” and came out last year. Thus, it is time to bring the band back to Oslo, where they haven’t played since Inferno 2013.
