Sabaton & Stratovarius Join Trondheim Metal Fest 1. okt 17:00 — 3. okt 23:59
Trondheim Metal Fest are proud to announce the final line up for 2015’s festival. This year’s headliners will be Swedish power metallers Sabaton and Finnish power metal legends Stratovarius!
Sabaton, formed in Falun, Sweden in 1999, have become popular for their history themed anthemic metal, with their lyrical content being drawn from World War I & World War II, among many other conflicts throughout history. TMF will also be Sabaton’s last Norwegian show of 2015! While Statovarius formed in 1984, and have worked tirelessly; releasing 15 studio albums, 4 DVD and 3 live albums. Along with German bands Helloween, Blind Guardian, and Gamma Ray, Stratovarius is considered one of the leading and most influential groups of the power metal genre.
They’ll be joined by US progressive metal legends Between The Buried And Me, French deathcore mob Betraying The Martyrs, and Norwegian thrashers Hellish Outcast. Between the Buried and Me formed in Raleigh, North Carolina in 2000. They have released a total of six studio albums, as well as an EP, a cover album, and two live DVD/CDs. Hellish Outcast formed in 2001 in Bergen by guitarist Martin Legreid, bassist Mads Mowinckel (BREED) and drummer Mads Lilletvedt (SOLSTORM, x-BYFROST). The band’s latest effort “Your God Will Bleed” cemented the bands status as the Norwegian underground’s raging pit bull. While French deathcore outfit Betraying The Martyrs have been causing mayhem across the planet with their razor sharp extremity. Their stunning debut offering, “Breathe In Life”, saw them make a huge impact throughout North America touring relentlessly on such high profile tours as RockStar Mayhem Fest and AllStars, amongst a slew of other club treks.
Final additions to this year’s line-up include Icelandic viking metallers Skálmöld, Faroese doomsters Hamferð, Norwegian stoner doom heroes Sahg, Norwegian black metallers Iskald, Norwegian doom merchants Tombstones, progressive metallers Tellus Requiem, Nordic mentalists Attan, Trondheim thrashers The Hate Colony, extremists Scornful, Iranian black metallers From The Vastland and a selection of Norwegian tribute bands, Maiden Norway (Iron Maiden), Anthem – DIO Tribute (DIO), Battery (Metallica) and Baghera (Pantera).
Further to this, TMF’s sixth outing will be held at the glamourous Scandic Lerkendal Congress Hotel, both the newest hotel in Trondheim, and also the biggest conference hotel in Norway. Complete with three stages; sporting a total capacity of 2200, a metal market area, Q&A’s, clinics, cinema, meet & greets, quizs, tattoo stands, restaurants, bars, snack shop, gym, sauna, lounge areas and exciting travel excursions around Trondheim. In short, TMF in 2015 is not to be missed.
At 75 meters, the hotel is also Norway’s third tallest building; with a skybar/conference room on the top floor, which has an exclusive panoramic view of the city. This will be used for a series of activities during the daytime, and will be turned into a skybar with metal karaoke once darkness falls.
