NIFELHEIM

NIFELHEIM

That Sweden is one the most important countries when it comes to black metal should be well known for most heavy metal-connaiseurs – but if you’ve missed out on this fact Nifelheim, formed in the small town of Dals Långed in 1990, are as good as evidence as it can get. The band’s original take on the genre gets its inspiration both from classic heavy metal as well as from old school black metal-acts such as Bathory, Tormentor and Master’s Hammer. They’ve released four albums, with “Envoy of Lucifer” from 2007 being the latest. Nifelheim visited us in 2004 and have since been one of the most requested re-runs of their genre. With an odd, original sense of melody, uncomprising, raw vocals and unusally catchy songs considering their style their gig well most definitely be a highlight at this years festival for any fan of black metal.
