HORNA frontman Spellgoth will be joining KVELERTAK‘s Erlend Hjelvik, SHINING‘s Niklas Kvarforth, and SORHIN‘s Nattfursth on the upcoming album from Swedish “Alfapokalyptic” Rockers ALFHANNE, who, together with their label Dark Essence Records, have been running a competition over the past couple of months, inviting fans to guess the guests and win a copy of the new album.
“The competition has been a lot of fun for us” commented the band, “and hopefully the fans have enjoyed it too – we’ve certainly been receiving entries from all parts of the world. Our guests on this album are all from quite different bands, and are are musicians for whom we have a great admiration and we were more than excited when they agreed to perform guest vocals. From the comments we’ve been getting it seems that the fans feel the same way too. Obviously we can’t reveal too much about the new album at the moment, except to say that it will be out in September, but Dark Essence Records will be revealing more information soon, and you’ll get a chance to hear something from it too!”
Formed in 2010 ALFAHANNE’s lineup of Pehr Skjoldhammer on Vocals and Guitar, Fredrik Sööberg on Guitars, Niklas Åström on Drums and Jimmy Wiberg on Bass, have a good two decades of experience under their belts, having been around the Black Metal scene since the early ‘90’s, in bands like VINTERLAND and early MAZE OF TORMENT. Their self-styled “Alfapokalyptic Rock”, which mixes Black Metal with Classic Rock and Punk, combined with their charismatic and high-energy live shows, has gained the band a legion of fans, both inside and outside of Europe.
ALFAHANNE’s new album will be a follow up to last year’s debut full-length “Alfapokalyps”, which once again featured guest vocals from SHINING’s Niklas Kvarforth, as well as TAAKE’s Hoest and HELHEIM’s V’gandr.
Confirmed live dates for ALFAHANNE as follows:
26 June, Tuska Festival, Helsinki, Finland
03 July, Hard Rock Laager, Vana-Vigala, Estonia
07 August, Jalometalli Metal Music Festival, Oulu, Finland
