Scorched Tundra’s mission is to give a new generation of talented artists a unique live platform in Gothenburg and Chicago. Scorched Tundra’s billing – based on sound not stature – creates a unique aural experience for the audience. “ZOMBIEKRIG and MAMMOTH STORM come from very different spaces within the metal world. Showcasing them together will enhance the unique aspects of what makes these bands special. EYEHATEGOD will bring the evening together in spectacular fashion. A new venue – a perfect host – Pustervik, is the ideal setting for what will mark the next phase of Scorched Tundra in Sweden,” states organizer Alexi Front.
EYEHATEGOD is one of the most revered metal bands – they transcend categorization and continue to create their own space musically. The legends from New Orleans will be making a special trip to Gothenburg for their Scorched Tundra premier in the midst of a relentless, seemingly endless, global conquest.
ZOMBIEKRIG is an important part of Scorched Tundra’s history, performing its last show at ST II 2012. Vocalist Axel Widén’s unique poster designs drive the visual side of the festival each year. Performing its distinctive brand of old school thrash metal as a four piece for only the second time, ST IX will be ZOMBIEKRIG’s only show of 2018.
MAMMOTH STORM has been quietly working on new material for the follow up to its pummeling debut Fornjot (Napalm Records). The band’s sophomore release will be available on Jon Davis’ (CONAN) Black Bow Records later in the year. MAMMOTH STORM will use ST IX as an opportunity to debut – for the first time live – material from that forthcoming album.
WALK THROUGH FIRE takes a wide variety of musical inspirations from the bleak and slow rhythms of doom metal to the compositions of contemporary classical music, black metal and drone music. The Gothenburg-based four-piece has released two albums over the course of its ten year period, including a live performance of composer Arvo Pärt. WALK THROUGH FIRE will mark its Scorched Tundra debut with a punishing set consisting of new material.
