Curated by Metal Hammer editor Alexander Milas, our September metal event will feature three bands guaranteed to bring the roof down.

First 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”. You get the idea!

Next up will be veteran Finnish speed metal outfit Thunderstone, who formed in 2000 and have been slaying audiences ever since with albums like 2002’s Thunderstone, 2004’s and their recent (2009) Dirt Metal.

Last but not least come Norway’s Kvelertak, described as “brutally catchy punkrock/metal with a taste of groovy darkness”. Their debut album has gone down a storm and the band are well known for their furious live energy.
