THANK YOU to each and one of you that participated to the first edition of Stockholm Slaughter! It has been a hell of a ride to bring the festival to life and it has been as honor to have such great bands performing on the two stages in front of such a great crowd!
Today it is exactly one month since we succumbed into silence after several months of intensive work and preparations. The silence was much needed to take in the feedback received, to analyze and decide whether or not to continue. It will not be an easy task to top this year’s edition in terms of line-up and the received support but we accept the challenge!
Stockholm deserves its own metal festival where bands play in front of an international audience and we have seen it possible. It was overwhelming to see metalheads from 29 different countries gathering to celebrate acclaimed bands, in a city that is a home-town to so much metal history.
We have learned some important lessons after this first edition while going through your requests and complaints. We do encourage you to write reviews or even better, use the feedback-link bellow as a direct communication channel to us. Only with your help and input can we improve the festival.
Our focus for the next year is on:
- The sound at the main stage
- Less to no overlapping between the stages
- Places to sit and relax during the day
- Warm up day held at the same venue the day before the festival
This having said, mark the 28th of April 2018 in your calendars and join us on yet another journey that will lead to a unique festival and line-up!
Due to health issues Shining are unfortunately forced to cancel all shows scheduled in March and April, including our event.
We have once again done our best to find a suitable band for our festival within the very short time and we are happy to be able to announce that Gaahls WYRD has now been added to the billing!
Legendary singer, front man, artist and composer, Gaahl, has assembled some of Norway’s finest metal musicians under his new moniker Gaahls WYRD. The band consist of Sir (Trelldom, God Seed, Djerv), Lust Kilman (The Batallion, God Seed, Grimfist), Eld (Krakow, Aeternus) and Baard Kolstad (Borknagar, Leprous).
This highly qualified line-up plays a finely selected, career spanning repertoire from Gaahl’s time in Trelldom, Gorgoroth and God Seed. The band also aim to perform new original material. Gaahl is known for his haunting stage presence and excellent performances.
The running order is to be published within 2 weeks.
Tillsammans med ACRIMONIOUS från Grekland (som har bland annat delat medlemmar med band som Thy Darkened Shade och Nightbringer,) utlovar dessa tre band sex intensiva kvällar enligt följande turnéschema:
Unfortunately, after confirming the show in Sweden Primordial was forced to cancel their appearance a Stockholm Slaughter due to a double booking. We will do our best to bring them back to Sweden as soon as possible.
Meanwhile a suitable replacement has been found and we are now happy to announce that Tiamat has joined the festival bill for an exclusive show in Sweden!
With the addition of Schirenc Plays Pungent Stench, NECROPHOBIC, Hellfire Deathcult, SÓLSTAFIR, Entrails, Primordial and last but not least Moonspell to perform an exclusive early days set with songs only from their first two albums, the line-up for Stockholm Slaughter 2017 is now complete.
The past is alive!
