hammerfest 5

Hammerfest 5 (In Fear Of The Dragon) are proud to announce that the Kings of Swedish Doom Metal Candlemass will grace the event now in its new location at Haven in Phwelli in North Wales.

For those of you that need a reminder of Doom at its most glorious, see the video below of Candlemass' classic 'Bewitched'.

Hammerfest are also extremely happy to welcome back Birmingham's finest grindcore/extreme Metal band, the legends that are Napalm Death. Anyone that witnessed their set the last time they played would understand why we had to have them back.

Lining up alongside the above are none other than Norway's Enslaved fronted by Bjørnson and Kjellson who add their fine blend of progressive Black Metal to the proceedings.

In 2012 Rap rockers Senser also delivered a blinding performance and won over the Hammerfest crowd so much so that they earned themselves an immediate recall.

Moving swiftly on we bring you Australian Thrash Metallers 4Arm, a cracking band that deserve to be taken notice of.

Plus we have trad Metallers and firm Hammer favourites Stuka Squadron, Manchesters trad black Metallers Winterfylleth, prog Metallers Empress who impress and Welsh Metallers Triaxis.

Finally to wind up our first announcement we are also pleased to add Black Metal legends Jeff Dunn and Tony Dolan's Mpire Of Evil, The Venom, Mantas and The Demolition Man have returned and get set to play a classic set of old and new material at Hammerfest 5.
