Norwegian Black Metal veterans RAGNAROK are set to play a couple of tracks from their upcoming full-length album during their Inferno Festival appearance tomorrow, Friday 19 April.
As founder Jontho, one of Black Metal’s most recognisable and iconic drummers who has laid down his sticks in order to front RAGNAROK, explains:
Oslo’s Inferno Festival is not just legendary in Norway, it’s legendary throughout the world, so it’s always exciting to appear there, as it is to soak up the atmosphere and meet all the fans. That’s why we thought we’d break out a couple of the new songs even before we announce details of the album itself.
You can catch RAGNAROK on the Rockefeller stage at 16:30.
Whilst the band doesn’t want to reveal too much about what will be their ninth full-length album at this time, they have confirmed that once again they have called on the services MARDUK bassist Devo to steer them through the recording process at his Endarker Studio in Sweden, and that it is set for release on Agonia Records later in the year.
More details will follow soon.
Aside from their appearance at Inferno Festival, other confirmed dates for RAGNAROK include the following:
17 May: Sticky Fingers, Gothenburg, Sweden (with CRAFT)
18 May: Kraken, Stockholm, Sweden (with CRAFT)
15 May: Oak Metal Club, Fosser, Norway (with CREST OF DARKNESS)
