hrh viking

Hard Rock Hell has expanded further with the latest addition to the already impressive festival roster being HRH Vikings, a two day, two arena adventure, taking place at the O2 Academy in Sheffield on 1st and 2nd December 2018.

HRH are even serving up their very own HRH Viking Ale and the line-up is impressive too and features five mind-blowing sub-genres of Metal: Battle, Nordic, Pagan, Black and Death. Expect the unexpected as HRH go all out to create a Metal Viking saga.

HRH main man Jonni Davis tells us:

"We've been threatening to do this for some time now. We just needed the right bands in cycle, and by all the Gods in Asgard we've nailed them high!"

The first announced headliner is Turisas: taking their name from an ancient Finnish God of war, Turisas will be bringing their rousing Battle Metal to HRH Vikings. Another headliner has yet to be announced.

Danish Folk Metal band Svartsot are well-suited to the Scandinavian heart of HRH Vikings. Ereb Altor are famed for their mix of Pagan and Black Metal, and are often compared with Bathory in their most epic and Pagan period, whilst Obscurity are a German melodic Death/Black Metal band, with strong Viking Metal influences.

Joining the above on the initially-announced line-up are Finsterforst, Waylander, Old Corpse Road, Haerken, Oakenshield, Ravenage Sellsword, Witan, PKA, Accursed Years, Blood Oath, Mordrake, Isarnos and Gymir.

Many more acts will be announced soon.
