Norwegian bunker metal band Drottnar has been signed for the 12th edition of the Brainstorm Festival. The Norwegians will present their new album “Monolith”.

Drottnar was last to be admired in the Netherlands in 2011. Despite the lack of shows and the long time between their releases, the band has always remained a fixture in the Norwegian metal scene.
