Today we have a special Nordic threat for you. A triad of Norwegian bands that demonstrate how colorful and variable can metal genre be. Let's start with the kings of European slam from KRAANIUM. Crushing machine with no compromises offers a strictly defined death metal carnage combined with catchiness exactly in the way that fans of slam love and we know very well how flawlessly this combination of theirs works on stage
A totally different side of the genre will be represented by their countrymen from LEPROUS. Although there is a lot of heaviness to be found in their music, it is enriched by melancholy, astonishing clean vocals and progressive concepts so there is no shortage of moments where the band is crushing you with 8 string riffs as well as those where you will be taken into dreamlands to float on the waves of Nordic atmosphere.
The last Norwegian nationals will bring straight forward and often also quite technical death metal to the party. BLOOD RED THRONE should have performed on this year's festival but the circumstances were against it. Let's hope that they will participate on our next edition with no problems and fill the Slovak air with a bit of the right coldness through their mechanically sounding death metal.
KRAANIUM, LEPROUS and BLOOD RED THRONE on Gothoom 2017!
