My Dying Bride Added To Inaugural Blastfest Lineup!
Set in Bergen, Norway’s lake-hugging USF Verftet venue – the now-renovated former home of the much-missed Hole In The Sky – Blastfest is a new metal festival, and it’s already got a lineup that’ll make you weep joyful tears of sulphur.
With the likes of Triptykon, Marduk, Sweden’s Shining, Anaal Nathrakh and Vader already on the bill, the latest big name to be announced is Yorkshire’s seminal death/doom crew, My Dying Bride.
“With a lineup that focuses on the darker and more extreme side of metal,” says Blastfest founder Yngve Bolt Christiansen, “we are so happy to have My Dying Bride added as our first headliner. I feel my lineup is getting pretty solid now, but there will be more names from both death and black coming up. I hope people like this and what me and my friends are trying to do for the Norwegian metal scene, and that tickets sell well, so that this can be a new tradition for my city of Bergen.”
Blastfest takes place at USF Verftet on February 20-22, 2014, and already looks to be one of the major highlights on the extreme metal calendar.
