Last week, thousands of metalheads descended on the black metal mecca and witnessed legendary metal performances across several venues, including the legendary Grieghallen, where many seminal Norwegian black metal albums were recorded in the 90s. Highlights included a blistering performance of Eld in its entirety by Enslaved, demolishing sets from Norwegian heavy-weights such as Taake and Gorgoroth, a rare and devatstaing performance from Nidrosian black metal enigma Mare, and of course, a rare and special 30th anniversary set by Dimmu Borgir, who broke out songs that haven't been played in decades!
In addition to the mind-blowing performances, attendees were also treated to a wealth of once-in-a-lifetime events including wine tasting with Gaahl, a special photo exhibition from iconic black metal photographer Peter Beste, a tour of Grieghallen with legendary producer Pytten (where he recorded seminal albums such as Enslaved’s Vikingligr Veldi, Frost and Eld, the first two Emperor albums, In the Nightside Eclipse and Anthems to the Welkin at Dusk, Gorgoroth’s Pentagram and Antichrist, Mayhem’s De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas, and Immortal’s Diabolical Fullmoon Mysticism, Battles in the North), guided tours of black metal landmarks with Tore Bratseth (Old Funeral, The Batallion, Bömbers), a Dimmu Borgir exhibition hosted by Finn Håkon Rødland, a live taping of Alan Averill's 'Agitator's Anonymous' podcast, artist talks, and so much more!
