Godla commented:

“By keeping the set times between 5 and 15 minutes for each artist, it allows me to not only keep things moving, but mix it up in ways that conventional festivals simply can’t. Every single hour will contain big names and emerging artists right next to each other.

I’m trying to look at the bright side of our current situation, and not only make this an entertaining way to see the artists you love flex their creativity in new ways, but hope this event acts as a place of discovery for every viewer out there.

Finding a band or artist to fall in love with is the mark of a great festival to me, and it’s my honor to share the work of these amazing individuals I curated because I’m passionate about them. I’ve been in touch with all of them every step of the way, and some even managed to throw me a few surprises.

I’m honored and humbled to have all of them part of this, they truly went above and beyond to showcase their craft for the Slay At Home fest, and I can’t wait for the world to see something really special come to life this weekend.”

Money raised from the event will benefit MusiCares and Global Giving.

Cadaver Release New EP “D.G.A.F.”

Cadaver, the band featuring Anders Odden (Satyricon) and Dirk Verbeuren (Megadeth), have digitally released a new EP titled “D.G.A.F.” The effort comes with three songs including the title track, which features Jeff Walker (Carcass), “Deformed Insanity,” and “Disgrace.”

Odden commented:

“In 1989, Cadaver got signed to Necrosis Records owned by Jeff Walker and Bill Steer from Carcass. Cadaver’s debut album, ‘Hallucinating Anxiety’, was released in 1990 as Norway’s first death metal LP. Now, in 2020, Nuclear Blast have embraced the resurrection of Cadaver and release the EP ‘D.G.A.F.’ with a tip of the hat to the legacy of Carcass. Jeff Walker even join us in the chorus this time around. We are super stoked to release this beast during this very special time. Get your mind off the craziness and enjoy old school death metal.”

Verbeuren added:

“As a legendary band once said, extreme conditions demand extreme responses. We were going to release a three-song EP sometime after our new album came out, but then a global pandemic happened. While the full-length will arrive at a later date, here’s ‘D.G.A.F.’ in all its brutal glory and on Nuclear Blast, which we couldn’t be more stoked about. Consider these misanthropic death metal hymns our soundtrack to the end of days.”

Anders Odden (Satyricon, Cadaver) Diagnosed With Colon Cancer

Anders Odden (Satyricon, Cadaver) has revealed that he has been diagnosed with colon cancer. The musician has already undergone chemotherapy and is also scheduled to undergo surgery on January 6.

Odden said the following:

“I wanted to wait to tell you all about my condition until my surgery was done, but then I got this video clip. On my musical hero Lemmy’s, death date (28.12.2015) my friend Hank Von Hell is in Sweden raising money for the cancer cause with Motorhead drummer Mikkey Dee. Getting this video was very touching and made me wanna share it with you to raise money for cancer research.

I was diagnosed with colon cancer the 3rd of October 2019. Since then I have done chemotherapy to shrink the tumor down so I can undergo surgery.

The surgery date is set to the 6th of January 2020. The doctors have told me that everything will go as planed and that I will get rid of this cancer. It’s a tough journey, but I am ready. Have a happy new year and I will see you when I am through. #cancer #coloncancer #cancerresearch #mikkeydee #hankvonhell #motorhead #riplemmykilmister #🤘😎🤘”

He also added the following in a separate post:

“It’s been a weird year – recorded a new fantastic @cadavertheband album with my new wingman, @dirkverbeuren. Ruled the metal festivals of the world with @satyriconofficial – Made my live comeback with Cadaver at @hellbotn_metalfest – then toured Norway with @haape and the legendary @tonyharnell – then, My life turned upside down the 3rd of October getting diagnosed with colon cancer- BUT – i am allready on the road to getting back- Surgery and recovery, then back out with new music and gigs! Thanks to all of you who have supported me this year – love you all – happy new year! #newyearseve #2020vision #2019reflections”
