INFERNO METAL FEST present Inferno Club Nights and more extra activities

On Wednesday, April 5, Inferno Metal Festival will present the Inferno Club Night. In several venues in Oslo, there will be extra performances that are free to attend for four day ticket holders.

The venue Blå will host avant garde metal band Imperial Triumphant and noise artist John Wiese. In Vaterland, you will be treated with some fine black metal of Norway’s own Bizarrekult and Sweden’s Thy Gift is a Curse.

During the festival week, there will be more extra, musical activities taking place in different venues in Oslo.

For those hungry for some more fun after the last gig at Rockefeller you can join Deathbarrel and their outlaw country music. Sounds odd for a metal festival? Wait until you see this live. Deathbarrel will perform both Friday 7th of April and Saturday 8th of April at Clarion Hotel the Hub.

Kate Pendry and Audun Aschim Steffensen performs Little Wolf at Brewgata on April 8th. In The Ballad of Little Wolf, Pendry and Steffensen explore the limits of their ranges as musician and actress. Pendry’s current explorations with biometric technology and the range of ‘sound’ the body is capable of, coupled with Steffensen’s focus on the theatrical, real-time performativity of composition and musicianship, combine to create a mythopoeic space, where with just two performers the room can be transformed by the sonic shadows they create.

With Little Wolf, Pendry and Steffensen unite the diversity of their artistic expressions in this concert sprechen-sang, bringing together musicianship and theatricality to create a performance that seeks to nudge the boundaries of the artists’ respective disciplines..

For the average music fan the story of Norwegian Black Metal is in essence something about murder, suicide and church burning. Between 1991 and 1993 many of the most important events in this dark chapter in Norwegian music history took place in Oslo and we have put together a field trip to the sights that takes you back in time.
