Hammerfest 4 - Hammer Of Thor - March 2012

Hammerfest 4 - Hammer Of Thor - March 2012

Hammerfest IV…runic metal mayhem launches its first 5
….Since the discovery of the multiple rune stones on the Northern shores of Norway, it has always been hard to believe the true meaning of that ancient runic inscription that marks out very clearly the birth of Hammerfest. To some it’s a town in Norway to the deeper readers, its origin is a Metal Valhalla.
The Runes tell of the early days of Hammerfest’s creation, as it was cast by the norns on that fateful day at the well of Urur ( well of fate) 3 years past. Make no mistake, this tale is not one spun lightly by neither the norns themselves nor the Volva faces of their dark seidr metal masters. Quite possibly the Alfather has had his say as has the rest of the Norse Gods at Asgard, but one fact is for sure…when the Valkyries, ..our dark angels of death…march and lead the HF “Oathsworn” to the next gathering for our metal thing !...so will commence a sonic battle like none staged from this ancient world…..we can also be sure that when Mjolnir..Thor’s supernatural Hammer… casts the first drum and brings every Metal Berserker from the oathsworn into this dark metal hall for 120 decibels of pure FKN Heavy Metal at its best….then the human shield wall will be up and the heads of hair will be flying………. From every distant land on the Norse Whale road…we will witness a holmgang of bands who will ignite the sacred flame and commence Hammerfest IV………The Hammer of Thor…Loud as FK!!...Masters of Metal…..
Leading the charge will be none other than NYC's Metal Legends......Anthrax who will be doing a special classics set as well as some super cuts from the forthcoming new album which is something of a nugget.

On the flank we have the UK dealers of Doom, ,...Paradise Lost who just seem to be growing year on year and will be doing what they do best at HF

On a rare trip, we also welcome NWOAHM…Chimaira who drop in from the US to dish out a selection of their notable metal grooves.

Another UK classic band who will be doing 3 decades of their own special Thrash are now back on the scene and it's with pride that Lawnmower Deth take the ranks in a line up that will rock the very foundations of Prestatyn.

Finally Manchesters Fury UK take up the rear in this first Hogs Snout of shields to call to arms the full HF " Oathsworn"....
Let the Battle begin…
VIP is all but gone, so if you want to get onboard, then ring Fleur on 08700 110034 or e-mail / FB her rapido. DC n Vet deals only last til 1st October or until we run out, whatever comes first.
The HF Oathsworn has been summoned

Pre party Thursday 15th March 2012, Main Event Friday 16th and Saturday 17th March

Skindred to headline Saturday night at HAMMERFEST 4

Skindred to headline Saturday night at HAMMERFEST 4


Following an incredible European rout of everything musical, 2011 has seen Skindreds career catapult them into the premiership and up their capacities round the globe. Its with great pleasure Benji and the boys take the Saturday night throne at Hammerfest 4 and do what they do best….blow yer face off with an onslaught of their self styled ragga metal. Skindred fans can expect a headline set from hell with a few surprises thrown in, just to rock the foundations of Prestatyn that bit more.

Making their HF debut, are Heavens Basement, who are no strangers to the scene but are well up for leading the charge on the special sounds stage on Friday. After a gruelling 3 years of non stop touring, we felt it was right for them to join the HF ranks and give it to us full throttle.

Lastly are new HRH discoveries Sci Fi Mafia, as Jonni Davis would describe it…it’s a metal version of Hawkwind and highly entertaining…Industrial Metal with electronic riffage…utterly FKN mental….have a listen www.myspace.com/sciencefictionmafia

Were down to our last 11 VIP rooms and Gold is double on last year…so shift it

Line up now stands as

Skindred
Anthrax
Paradise Lost
Chimaira
Lawnmower Deth
Fury UK
Heavens Basement
Sci Fi Mafia
Mortad

American Thrashers go head to head at Hammerfest IV



Well, well, well, ..If it wasn’t enough to get Anthrax slamming their sound n couture all over Friday night, we now see them going head to head with American Thrash lords…Exodus..who now take centre stage for a double Thrash header which should blow the place to smithereens ….HF4 just seems to go on an all out… line up of destruction and seeing American Thrash Legends Exodus going on full assault with their Thrashtastic brothers only seems to sum up what’s going down at this years Hammerfest.



On to this announcement we see us adding…. a Phoenix USA debut for Chemicals of Democracy, who Jonni’s new Rock agency Chic Talent, have been rigorously scouting out over the last 3 months, and now bring forward to their first UK performance albeit in front of the HRH / HF loyal. Joining them we have HF fav’s Arthemis and Scottish blood metalers Achren…all in all..another ballsy addition to an already incredible line up for HF 4.



Come forward and be FKD…hard !!!...This is true metal at its best



If you ain’t feeling it, you are already FKD !!!

Viking Metal Mayhem reaches Hammerfest IV



Further to recent speculation, we can now confirm that the mighty Amon Amarth will be tearing apart Hammerfest on main stage, Saturday night. With the Hammer of Thor being the theme for March, its only too right we make sure that these Viking Gods grace the stage and do what they do best……tear yer heads off!!!



Joining them will be German power Metallers….Wizard…who will be concocting their own set of Norse Mythology just to stay in line with AA. And just to add a curve ball, we have The Painted Smiles joining us , led by ex Six Th frontman, Mikee Goodman.



Last weekend saw the finals of Highway to Hell 2 produced 6 New Blood bands for HF IV, Overall winners were Gentleman of Distorted Sound, with will earned coveted slots going to Trucker Diablo, Kyrbgrinder, Savage Outlaw, Spirytus and Inferno for good measure. HTH2 had over 1000 bands apply and these finalist slots were selected from a final 24 play off in Glasgow’s Classic Grand last weekend.



Welcome To HammerFest 4 - Hammer of Thor

Following on from an already monstrous line up, we are pleased to bring in Swedish Power Metalers….. Dream Evil ..to conduct a rare appearance of what they all do best. We would also like to welcome back Evile who know shift up a gear to main stage credentials and join Anthrax and co in a Thrashtastic header. No Hammerfest would be complete without bringing in and Old Skool metal performance and HF4 can only but smile at the arrival of Avenger to do this the NWOBHM way.



Bringing in a 3 decade collection for our new Alternative sounds plot, we have asked Senser to grace our stages and give us their Industrial rap metal onslaught just for good measure, …and apart from that, well we have a best of British Metal collection..consisting of the following, who will create a Metal Forge of straight forward balls out, Metal at its best…bring in the conveyer belt…who are…. Snakebite, Slam Cartel, Severenth, Cerebral Bore, Oaf, Collapse, AR, Red Mist Destruction & Sworn Amongst….there you have it..another 13 to add onto an already solid line up..



Just over a hundred rooms left now, so at least it puts you in the picture…

Hail the Hammer



Well were only 8 weeks or so to the big HF4, so it would prudent to start spanking some more Talent in and letting you know what we’ve got lined up for the Thursday night pre party.



Thursday will be kicking off in the Vic with a UK trio of fresh Talent, namely Perpetuate,One More Victim and Flame Fracture.



The main frame will be a trip of Metal Nostalgia, which will call upon the talents from the vaults of Black Rose,Pagans Altar,Blitzkreig and after the response at HRH, we had to get The Sanity Days back in and give us that original Onslaught sound once more. Well also finish the night with a bit of fun like we did last year, but this years will be with Dirty DC.



Saturday sees three more additions, namely Irish legends Waylander, Americas new boys Diamond Plate and by demand HF favs Ravenface…..Lastly three more for the Metal Forge of raw talent…bring on Elimination, Drip Back and Lets Play God…..



Looks like HF4 accommodation will totally sell out sometime this week, so stay tuned and if you haven’t booked..then I’d strongly advise to ring immediately…day passes are under a 100 now, so with that in mind, Id say its all pretty much in the bag…..Slots will be up 4 weeks prior as usual and we will be doing an Unplugged stage as well as a surprise chalet party..all going off at HF4…..couple of slots left but, heh, anything can happen



Looking forward to catching up



HRH Watchtower

Just finishing off the Thursday night pre party to HF4, we had two slots pending which are now slam, dunk n sorted

Joining the other Classic brigade on stage 2, NWOBHM legends, Saracen make a healthy HF debut, ready to take a drive down the classics as well as a couple of newbies from their latest effort Marilyn.

Last Vic slot goes to a Thousand enemies, who have come about as a new mix of musicians from earlier projects but now have a developed sound that can ignite both sides of the Rock N Metal spectrum and deliver exactly what we need to get this festival started on the right footing.

Lets FKN have it !!!
