WE WILL NOT YIELD!

We still lack bands for a full program, so we’re cutting the festival down to one day, Saturday only. Tune in at our YouTube channel on Saturday.

The live stream will be FREE and accessible globally for everyone and start at 6 PM CET on Saturday! There will also be a stream with Spanish translation available.

Due to COVID-19 blowing up like crazy in Oslo, we are saddened by the news that Cloth, Flukt and Dalit can’t play at NF this year. Luckily, Renascent was able to play, and we’re super excited!

In addition to the 4 bands, we’ll also talk about our past and future releases as well as answer questions. We have more stuff planned, but for that you will have to wait and see..

It is time to gather the FAMILY again! As all of you know making plans for the future became hard with this blasted virus, but the skull grinding metal train that is Nordic Fest, will not be stopped by negative thinking and worst-case scenarios. So….

We are proud to invite you ALL to the 14th edition of Nordic Fest. For the first time the festival can be experienced from your living room, as we are producing a 5-camera livestream with professional sound and picture. This is to welcome the entire extended Nordic Fest and Nordic Mission family to the venue we all hold close to our hearts: Sub Scene in downtown Oslo.

The stream will be available via our YouTube channel and is free to watch. With the help of Exodo Fest in Mexico and Die X Live in Chile, the streamed festival will also be available to Latin America, with some Spanish subtitles. Not only will the festival have bands playing, there will also be a live studio between the show including reports, interviews and greetings from the scene, news from Nordic Mission and a grand ending with the celebration of the Holy Communion. Be ready with wine and bread!

We will ask humbly for donations during and after the streamed festival. We accept PayPal, Vipps (Norway), Swish (Sweden) and Mercado Pago (Mexico). The money will help cover the production of this festival as well as helping the future of both Nordic Fest and Nordic Mission.

Well not every day do I get an opportunity to review a black metal band, so it excites me when something like this gets presented to me and allows me to adjust my peripheral for a moment, and all I have is the cold hard facts to work with as presented to me.

So let’s get technical and historical for a moment. Christian black metal is often touted as unblack metal and its origins are largely a disputed one, but it’s safe to say both Australian’s Horde and Norway’s Antestor are the fathers of the genre. Obviously Unblack metal focuses on Christian themes and philosophies. A lot of this genre’s music has adopted unconventional song structures.

So here we got a band by the name of Cloth with their album, Axis Mundi off the label Nordic Mission Productions up under review. Cloth is a musical collective consisting of members of, Stronghold, DALIT and Aspiration. So these Black Metal rockers take you through a journey of the hopelessness of humankind we all feel. It confronts what has led us to where we are, and to what end we all are coming closer to – with a strong philosophical and allegorical backbone behind it all.
