Currently, it is one of the most interesting acts you can ask for from the Nordic dark scene.With thirty years of active, nefarious service under their bulletbelts, NECROPHOBIC are undisputed legends of the death-black metal underground. Formed in 1989 by drummer Joakim Sterner, the Stockholm blackhearts propagated a singular and fearless vision from the very start, confirming their prowess with the now legendary debut album The Nocturnal Silence in 1993. Don't miss their first performance at our festival. It's gonna be hell!
A veritable treasure trove of Swedish black/death royalty, In Aphelion originally formed in 2020 by longtime NECROPHOBIC guitarist Sebastian Ramstedt on vocals, guitar, and bass with prolific drummer Marco Prij. In 2021, with the advent of their debut demo, fellow Necrophobic guitarist Johan Bergebäck joined, making the unholy trinity complete. An impossibly auspicious first start, In Aphelion's first demo landed the band a deal with Edged Circle, first resulting in the teaser-length EP Luciferian Age and now a grandiose hour-long debut album, Moribund.
