Blastfest 2015, Norway
Venue: Garage/USF Verftet, Bergen
Extreme metal’s brightest new festival calls in the big guns
As if kicking off a new extreme metal event with a three-day lineup wasn’t ambitious enough, this year’s second Blastfest extends to four days – give it another year and it’ll be giving Glastonbury a run for its money. Add the thrilling lineup and the dramatic scenery of Bergen and you have a winning combination.
In the cosy confines of the legendary Garage, a busy crowd wait in anticipation for KALL , the entity formed from the ashes of the legendary Lifelover. Initially loose, minimal and stark, The Swedes’ set gradually showcases their more upbeat and catchy leanings, the combination proving rousing and fascinating in equal measure.
