Metal Hammer and HRH present its third sacrifice to the Gods
Hammerfest III… Roma Victa
After another 4000 Strong, Metal horde descended on our second battleground, it was obvious by the mix of hair, leather, tattoos n booze that we all had something in common. Maybe it was the music, maybe the sound, maybe we just all had a great FKN time with loads of like minded Metal Headz who want to get away in the spring, away from wet fields and get on it with mates, artists and media alike, all under one roof.
Hammerfest has begun, a new world order and our new Roman themed set, aptly titled,… Roma Victa is set to blow your minds once again this spring and beyond as we move into new territories. HF III will be on show in all her glory, this March, 17th-19th, at our sacred Temple in Prestatyn, where many a sacrifice has been made to ensure the fortune of all those who venture into its realms.
As @ HF II,theres an extra night this year and were starting the party hard on Thursday night, which comes included in the VIP package. This has proved very popular at our sister brand HRH, where VIP sold out in 5 days flat. VIP is already over 65% sold, however there is a Gold Plus option which also caters for early hunters on the Thursday night, if your not fast enough.
Our first 5 bands include heavy metal and hardcore punk legends, Biohazard, who are celebrating their 20th anniversary with a new album and now a one way ticket to blast the FK out the UK with a rare appearance, couple that with American Thrash Lords,…. the mighty, multi resourceful.. Municipal Waste and were off the blocks and setting the tone for a very special encounter indeed.
From the UK, we have three new legions in the form of Mutant, Revoker, who have just signed to Roadrunner, and HF heroes Attica Rage who are just about launch their second album.
There will be over 50 Metal nuggets performing over the three days and quite a few enchanted surprises as we witness our new battleground…Roma Victa, a 360, roman themed, metal experience designed by the people for the people. Last years Hammerfest, sold out, 2 months in advance, in what has been described as some, as the worst year in history, so with nearly 40% on the blocks before we even launch who knows how quick this will go, but be assured that this will be the loudest, baddest mutha fkn event on the planet this spring, which will be sure to kick your ass !!!
Tickets are for two or three nights, VIP and Gold Plus includes the Thursday night, all other packages are for 2 with the option of adding on for as little as 30 quid for an extra night including accom. Early Bird tags are the same as 2010 and prices start from 105* GBP which includes accommodation, free car parking and entrance into all arenas. For immediate reservations or further information, ring 08700 110034or book online at www,hammerfest.co.uk
Make sure your not left it the lurch, remember we sold out 2 months in advance last year…this year we want to do it before the end of the year…rally the masses and lets get conquering Roman Style..
FK everything, this is Metal at its best
Veni, Vidi, Vici…or in HF language….I came. I Saw.I conquered.

Ready to spill some blood for all Nations at Hammerfest 3
Earlier this year after seeing Teutonic Terror go number one in the global myspace metal chart and number 5 in the worldwide video chart, we thought about looking further into what these boys have been doing. They haven’t really played the UK in any capacity for a while and their new album Blood of the Nations is just FKN brilliant. For a band to produce an album of this calibre after being dormant for 14 years opened our eyes hugely, after doing an opener for AC/DC this year in Stuttgart and then headlining Sonisphere in Romania and Turkey alongside Metallica and Rammstein, as we’ll as a few other festivals…. it was then we made our decision for these boys to take centre slot at Hammerfest 3 and give us a thunderous 90 mins set from Balls to the wall to all the new titanic tracks on Blood of Nations.
Hammerfest,… welcome back the mighty….Accept…they will not just make your balls vibrate, they will have them pinned to the FKN wall,, with the turbo sized rig were gonna put in front of them..This is truly metal at its best.
If you want a sniff from this summers festivals, try this…a bit of Teutonic Terror from Rock Hard this May… http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mhvIY...eature=related

HF 3 2011 Red Alert...12 more bands and only 143 rooms left
12 more Metal Maniacs join the Roman Nut Bags at HF 3
Hail Hammerfest and Happy NYE
Well were only 10 weeks now to HF 3 and after what just happened at HRH IV, can I blame you for not being able to wait til December for another round of Metal debauchery. As I’ve said, were now down to 143 rooms and with HF just round the corner, make sure you get off yer ass and do it all again in style before its too late. We have a lot more bands to announce from all corners of the globe plus some great Fresh Blood in the offing…but just to get you started here’s another 12 to go in the fold….
First up are battle metal overlords Turisas, fresh from crafting their upcoming Stand Up And Fight album. Guaranteed to eviscerate on their worst days, imagine the bloodletting when they’ve been cooped up for months! Stand up and mosh !!!
" Violinist Olli Vänskä says "we're very happy to get the chance to get Hammered and include this show in the first leg of the Stand Up And Fight tour 2011! We've heard it'll be a pretty crazy weekend - see you down the front!"
Next up from the states with a whirl wind rare UK appearance are, latin metal conquistadors Ill Niño, who have sold over a million units worldwide and are currently bringing houses down around the globe on the back of their storming Dead New World record, make their long-overdue return. Arriba!
Also in from the states, Pasadena Metal gurus, Holy Grail fly in from their world tour, with a not to be missed forge of metal classics, make sure you see this band, great sound !!!
From the states of the USA to the Rock from Gibraltar next, with an appearance from the much on demand Breed 77, they have wanted to be here for quite some time now and at last the slot is theirs .
Over to France now to drag the cream of Black Metal out of the hills in the form of Svart Crown, currently on a European crusade, they are now able and willing to take on the Hammerfest horde in all their dark glory.
From northern France we have Hardcore Metal nut bags Headcharger in for a session of their special style of metal, bouncy, mean and in my opinion..FKN brillaint.
Thursday night was promised to be bouncy, trad and classic, so joining Krakow are three NWOBHM Heroes from HRH, welcome in Jaguar, Elixir and Battleaxe…doing what they do best, just bad assed , loud classic metal, combine this with the Roman themed arena and were all in for some jack fuelled fun. Stage three sees Triaxis, Graveyard and Dirty Rose starting off the festival in style, with a couple of tributes to be thrown in later for good measure.
We’ll have another announcement in 10 days and we should be about there, Hammerfest will prove to be a 360 speed trip of every type of metal on offer, its what were all about, current, curve balls n pure credible chaos n debauchery, this is Hammerfest 3 and its happening in 10 weeks, so shift yer ass baby and get ready to do it one more FKN time !!!
