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.
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!
Tickets are available on www.Tickster.se
The first band that joined our procession, WATAIN will play their second opus “Casus Luciferi” in its entirety, the only such ritual ever to be performed on Swedish soil. No need to yearn for the old days, the past will now be resurrected and made one with the present!
We go back in time to commemorate Scandinavia’s pagan history with one of the oldest Swedish Viking metal bands, Månegarm that will lead the ranks of heathens with a set focused mainly on early releases.
With roots in the deep western woods of Värmland, Draconian is returning to Stockholm with their latest gothic/doom-opus, “Sovran”.
Urfaust, the Dutch cult of delirious madness will be playing on Swedish soil for the very first time while Ritual Butcherer and Lord Angelslayer, the infamous Finnish twins, also known as Archgoat Official will be making their return to Stockholm to preach their “Grand Luciferian Theophany”.
Born from the ashes of the underground legend Kaamos, The Curse is set to mesmerize and ensnare with their straight-into-your-face death metal.
Portrait’s upcoming album “Burn the World” is set for release in 2017 via Metal Blade Records and their appearance at Stockholm Slaughter will be the first one where material from the new album will be performed live.
Mortuus, a dark shadow from Norrland has been forging black metal that pays homage to the most sinister aspects of existence since 2003, yet never performed in Sweden. The 29th of April 2017 will be a steppingstone for the band, as their first ever live appearance in Scandinavia.
Stockholm Slaughter: The Awakening – the past is alive embarks on a journey to make this event a one of a kind experience for a wide audience and build a solid landmark in the Scandinavian metal landscape for years to come.
Additional acts to be announced shortly.
Scandinavia’s most exclusive metal festival:
Stockholm has for a long time been a launching pad for musicians, a foster for music innovation and the cradle for many world-wide established metal acts. Metal genres have seen the daylight or have their roots in the darkness of the Scandinavian capital. Stockholm Slaughter Festival is born to honour it and build a sacred shrine where crowds can worship its legacy.
On April, the 29th 2017 several international acts will emerge to quench the thirst for what defined and shaped metal as we know it today.
The first band to join our procession, WATAIN will play their second opus ‘Casus Luciferi’ in its entirety, the only such ritual ever to be performed on Swedish soil. No need to yearn for the old days, the past will now be resurrected and made one with the present!
