Hellfest organizers commented:

“Hellbangers,

What can we say except that we are proud (and excited) to finally unveil the long-awaited line up of our anniversary edition! Keeping such a line up as a secret for several weeks has been no easy task, especially in the last few days…

It’s been more than 16 months since our work rhythm was turned upside down by the arrival of this virus, since the live music industry was extinguished. Despite this, our confidence has never been affected and we have kept working with a positive mindset.

The frustration of two years without a festival has led us to dream even bigger about our reunion! In 2022, we are offering a new and unique format spread over 10 days! Never done before, this formula will, without a doubt, remain in the history of so-called “extreme” music! Twice as historic, because this formula is meant to exist only in 2022 and will not happen again in the years to come.

After a first weekend from 17 to 19th June 2022, we double the fun with an additional weekend from 23rd to 26th June! A real marathon that will see no less than 350 artists on 6 stages!

As usual, the festival does not deviate from its principles: you will see artists capable of performing in stadiums, with artists who are usually playing in smaller venues, and for some even in pub caves. Punk, Heavy, Black, Hardcore, Death, Stoner, Pagan, Power, we have done our best to put together what we believe to be the “edition of the century”.

No need to list the program in detail as you are not, and for the second year, headbanging at the festival right now. You can find out all this by yourself, at home or with your friends, enjoying our virtual edition “Hellfest From Home“! (More information over here : fromhome.hellfest.fr)

This exceptional edition is also an opportunity for us to thank the pass holders who have been waiting for more than 2 years. Your loyalty and trust have kept us going and we do not have enough words to thank you. It seemed fair to us that you should access the ticket sale 24 hours before the public sale in order for you to obtain your ticket for sure.

We are aware that some of you, for professional, family or simply financial reasons, will not be able to attend this XXL edition. By going through (and only through!) our partner TICKETSWAP (please stop Viagogo and others…), you will be able to resell your pass for the weekend you are the least interested in, and thus make one more happy fan!

For all the others who will have the chance to live these 10 days of anthology with us, we promise that you will remember our reunion! As a bonus, we might even make you a nice “FINISHER” t-shirt so that this moment will remain engraved forever in your memories. Once in a lifetime celebration!

Last but not least, we could not finish without thanking all those who have supported us during these last months. Volunteers, intermittents, sponsors, service providers, media partners, people from Clisson, we are all eager to see you again and to live with you this future adventure, which promises to be historic!

Stay Strong. Stay Safe.

Abbath Says He Would Be Open To Reuniting With Immortal Someday

During a recent interview with Dagbladet Magasinet, Olve “Abbath” Eikemo was asked if he would ever consider reuniting with Immortal and he responded by saying that he would be open to the idea. This news comes six years after the frontman left the group.

Abbath said the following about his split with the band:

“The other guys in the band said I had a drug and booze problem. But I never bothered them with that stuff. They only used it as an excuse [to get rid of me].”

The frontman, who used to be married to Harald “Demonaz” Nævdal’s sister, went on to say that it’s upsetting that his son Torbjørn barely gets to see his uncle:

“That makes me sad. My son and Harald rarely see each other, but [Harald] is still his uncle.”

He continued when asked about a possible reunion:

“IMMORTAL reunion? Hmm. I got a text from Horgh [IMMORTAL drummer Reidar Horghagen] saying it was great that I got sober. Harald and I haven’t spoken at all. But there’s no evil blood or bitterness on my part anymore. I realize that I was a part of the problem. Things are great for me now. But am I open to an IMMORTAL reunion? Yes, of course. But it has to be something special. I just wish we could sit down and have a talk about things when it all went to hell, instead of involving lawyers.”

Abbath also added that he likes to remember the good times that he had with Demonaz:

“We were young and we drank whisky. Demonaz and I decided to take a rowboat over the fjord to Lysøya, which is where [the famous Norwegian composer and violin player] Ole Bull used to live. The island was full of tourists and we were running around in the woods in full corpse paint and black metal regalia — with torches in our hands. You should have seen the look on the faces of the older American tourists; we nearly gave them a heart attack. We ran back to the boat and rowed like hell back home. Fuck, that was a great time. We were so inspired by the incident that we wrote most of ‘Pure Holocaust’ the very same night.”

“Decibel Metal And Beer Fest: Philly” Postponed Due To Coronavirus

The 2020 “Decibel Metal And Beer Fest” in Philadelphia, PA has been postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic. The event, which was supposed to feature Converge, Napalm Death, Pig Destroyer, Mayhem, Abbath, and more, was originally set to take place at The Fillmore on April 3-4. The following statement was issued:

“In an effort to control the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic, Philadelphia has announced a city-wide ban on gatherings in excess of 1,000 people, which unfortunately means we have been forced to postpone Decibel Magazine Metal & Beer Fest: Philly on April 3-4 at the Fillmore. Though it pains us to see so many plans disrupted as a result, we must remain committed to ensuring the safety of the bands, the breweries, the staff and, of course, the fans during this time. We will share the rescheduled festival date information as soon as we have it. Purchased tickets will be honored. Thank you for your understanding and support. More soon.”

Mayhem, Abbath, Etc. Tour Cancelled Due To Coronavirus

Mayhem, Abbath, Gatecreeper, and Idle Hands have officially cancelled their spring tour due to the coronavirus pandemic. The following statement was issued:

“In an effort to control the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic, numerous states and cities on the Decibel Magazine Tour routing have announced bans on gatherings in excess of 250 or 500 people (with many more expected to do the same in the coming days). As a result, we have been forced to cancel the Decibel Magazine Tour. Though it pains us to see so many plans disrupted as a result, we must remain committed to ensuring the safety of the bands, their crew, venue staff and, of course, the fans during this time. For ticket refunds, please inquire at point of purchase. Thanks for your understanding and support of Mayhem, Abbath, Gatecreeper, Idle Hands and Decibel.”
