Karmøygeddon Metal Festival 10.-12.05.2018 Kopervik, Norway


Karmøygeddon Metal Festival 2018 was held on 10.-12.05. in Kopervik, at the island of Karmøy on west coast of Norway. Over 30 bands took the stage in the 3 days to celebrate the 15th anniversary of this intimately small festival where seemed like everyone knew each other. Even though small, we did get plenty of artists needing no introduction. And plenty of space inside and outside to have drink, food or just chill.

The small Scandic stage was featuring Norwegian doom trio Purple Hill Witch with their Black Sabbath influenced melodies, Viking/folk metallers from Iceland Skálmöld, German extreme metal project The Ruins Of Beverast, Norwegian Death metal band Shaarimoth, the energetic Finnish six-piece Omnium Gatherum and plenty of others.

The main- Gassco stage on Friday was opened with style- a fiery performance, quite literally, from Norwegian hard rockers The Carburetors. Great band to watch and photograph- there was something exciting constantly happening on stage while the crowd was enjoying their fast forward hard rock. And a great closing on Saturday night too by the mighty German Thrash metallers Kreator. In between we did see Ukrainian metalcore band Jinjer, Greek black metallers Rotting Christ, Norwegian progressive five- piece Leprous and Finnish heavy metal band Amorphis amongst others.
