Curated by Metal Hammer editor Alexander Milas, we have drafted in three bands guaranteed to bring the roof down. First up are veteran Finnish speed metal outfit Thunderstone, who started out in 2000 and have been slaying audiences ever since with albums like 2002’s Thunderstone, 2004’s and their recent (2009) Dirt Metal.
Next up are legendary Icelandic Viking/black metal band Solstafir, whose name means “crepuscular rays”, and whose music has been described as “like the sounds from the bedroom as Darkthrone rapes The Doors while fingerbanging Bathory”.
Well, you get the idea!

Last but not least come Norway’s “black and rollers” Vreid, whose latest LP “Milorg” (2009) has become their greatest success. The band are currently putting their last touch on their first DVD, entitled “Vreid Goddamnit”.
