Category Archives: Stockholm Slaughter
We can now finally reveal the running order Stockholm Slaughter: Akt III. As previously announced, we will not have any overlaps. In practice it also means that we strongly recommend to those that wish to see entire sets of bands that are to perform at Slaktkyrkan, to be there in time in order to avoid long waiting lines at the entry. We will send an email with all practical info a few days prior the festival as well as share the most important info here, please have patience.
Some of you might notice that Morgana Lefay is not on the poster any more. Earlier this week we have been informed by the band that they have (once again) decided to take a break so for now it is unsure when or if they will ever perform again.
This having said we’ve managed to get a replacement in the form of the Stockholm based Death Metal act DIABOLICAL.
Less than 200 tickets available for Saturday so do not wait if you want to make sure you can get in!
Mgła does not need much of a introduction. The polish fog will engulf Stockholm with an exclusive performance at the third edition of our festival!
Furthermore, the depressive black metal act hailing from Finland, Totalselfhatred [official] will perform for the very first time on Swedish shores.
The time has now come to announce the continuation of Stockholm Slaughter: the third act will take place on April 27, 2019. We’ve selected a location that’s become somewhat of a gathering point for the Stockholm metal underground in recent years, having now hosted hundreds of such events: Watain’s release party, the Black Harvest festival, the Dark Days of Stockholm festival and Mayhem’s rendition of their legendary album De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas, for example.
Appropriately, Stockholm Slaughter 2019 will take place in Slakthusområdet, which translates to “the slaughterhouse area”. The entire block used to be one big abattoir apparatus! The main stage will be at Kraken Sthlm, located a few minutes from our previous venue, Fryshuset. The nearest subway and train station is Globen. Located just one hundred meters away or one minute walking distance is our second stage and venue – Slaktkyrkan, or “The Slaughter Church”.
Another important change is that the festival will only take place on Saturday, as opposed to the first two and then three days of our 2018 edition. Expect at least 12 intense hours of internationally acclaimed acts taking turns performing on two stages. Guests travelling from afar are encouraged to arrive one day early, since we’ll be hosting a pre-party event on the Friday, April 26. That said, we’re once again looking forward to welcoming all of you into the heart of Sweden for Stockholm Slaughter: Akt III!
Spread the news, the dawn of the dead is upon us!
Scandinavian Death Metal legends confirmed – Entombed A.D., the latest addition to the line-up of Stockholm Slaughter! The band is to perform on Saturday night.
As extreme we like our music, as much we disdain any political agendas, especially extreme ideologies of all types. As opposed to different blogs or newspapers, we do not have a political agenda but we do stand firmly for artistic freedom.
As previously reported, Marduk and Taake have been prohibited from performing at Fryshuset. We deeply regret this but have no choice but to respect their decision.
As such, we have been toiling day and night to find a solution. We are pleased to say that we found a Stockholm venue that agreed to host an early afternoon show with Marduk Official and Taake (Official) on Sunday 29th of April.
We are aware that this means some visitors might need to make changes in their personal schedules. This is obviously most unfortunate but, under the current timeline, the only realistic solution to keep the line-up intact.
We also feel that it’s very important to show them our support in these turbulent times.
2-day and Saturday tickets will obviously be valid for the Sunday show.
An updated running order and more information will be published within the next days.
Thank you for the shown support and see you in less than two weeks!
3 days – 22 bands
As we promised when we announced the first bands of the line-up, we have tried to work out a solution that has less to no overlapping between the stages and we’d like to think that we’ve reached our goal. In less than 5 weeks time, Stockholm Slaughter – The Second Comingwill once again be the international meeting place for metal fans from all around the world.
