||AMON AMARTH ANNOUNCED FOR HAMMERFEST IV
28th October 2011
Further to recent speculation, we can now confirm that the mighty Amon Amarth will be tearing apart Hammerfest on main stage, Saturday night. With the Hammer of Thor being the theme for March, its only too right we make sure that these Viking Gods grace the stage and do what they do best... tear yer heads off!!!
Joining them will be German power Metallers Wizard who will be concocting their own set of Norse Mythology just to stay in line with AA. And just to add a curve ball, we have The Painted Smiles joining us, led by ex Six Th frontman, Mikee Goodman.

Last weekend saw the finals of Highway to Hell 2 produced six New Blood bands for HF IV. Overall winners were Gentleman of Distorted Sound, with will earned coveted slots going to Trucker Diablo, Kyrbgrinder, Savage Outlaw, Spirytus and Inferno for good measure. HTH2 had over 1000 bands apply and these finalist slots were selected from a final 24 play off in Glasgow's Classic Grand last weekend.

HF4 just seems to go on an all out line up of destruction and seeing American Thrash Legends Exodus going on full assault with their Thrashtastic brothers only seems to sum up what's going down at this years Hammerfest.
