Århusianske Blunt har siden 2000 været synonym med reggae og hård rock i skønsom forening, et alsidigt tekstunivers og forrygende liveoptrædener. De karismatiske frontmænd Jimmie og Jake er altid garanter for at enhver koncert bliver en fest. I 2011 ændrede bandet holdopstilling, og er nu en oktet bestående af:
Jimmie Tagesen – vokal
Jakob ”Jake” Barndorff-Nielsen – Bas, vokal
Niels Bach Storgaard – Guitar
Jacob Lyngsdal – Guitar
Mikkel Govertz – Keys, kor
Lasse Enøe – Saxofoner
Feike van der Woude – Percussion
Anders Enøe – Trommer
Blunt er erfarne musikere der har rødder i så vidt forskellige bands som Addisababand, The Guv’nors, Surferinos, Oxx, Røg i Øjet, Privat Afgrund, Retroflex og Under Lavmålet. De har tilsammen spillet hundredevis af koncerter og skaber altid en festlig og uhøjtidelig stemning bag, foran og på scenen.
Siden deres seneste udgivelse No Karaoke (2011) vidner velbesøgte koncerter, på blandt andet Radar, Paletten, Fatter Eskil, Rockstjernen, Backstage og en række danske festivaller, om at Blunt er skarpere end nogensinde før.
BROKEN HAND CHARITY (DK)
Et overlegent band, der bruger sin teknik på at rocke igennem og skifte stykker og bygge numrene op og ned i et væld. Det er ikke helt symfonisk eller progressivt, og heller ikke thrash, men der bliver trukket på alle tre dele.” – Gaffa
“Genren ligger et eller andet sted mellem rock’n'roll og heavy metal og burde faktisk kunne fornøje fans af begge dele, da de to ting er flettet fermt sammen.” – Devilution.dk

Rockfreaks.net is extremely proud to bring you this exclusive concert with the enigmatic vildhjarta — a band we admire for their unique and uncompromising style of time-bending progressive metal, and for their cacophonous and highly atmospheric live performances.
Despite claiming just one studio album (“Måsstaden”, 2011) and two EPs (“Omnislash”, 2009; and “Thousands of Evils”, 2013) to their name, the band has attained cult status and coined their own etymology with “thall” – a word used often and without explanation by Vildhjarta and their fans alike when discussing the band.
Expect suffocating darkness, jarring time signatures, dissonant 7-string riffs and a dual-vocal onslaught of the sort to leave KB18 kødboderne in ruins by the time they’re done.
We’ve hand-picked three Danish bands to warm you all up before the main event, and to offer you the chance to check out some of the most exciting bands rumbling in the domestic underground right now:
GHOST IRIS (formerly known as THE MONOLITH) will open the proceedings with a barrage of hardcore laced atmospheric metalcore. They’ll be followed by the Southern flavoured madness of hardcore/mathcore fusionists EVRA, who’re fresh out of tearing Copenhell a new asshole. And last, but not least, we’ve secured the crushing services of Billy Boy in Poison to lead a mass in the church of death metal — with a slight helping of -core thrown in for good measure — with their tongues firmly in their cheeks.

Hamburg based Miyagi aka Robert Wagenknecht is not only a dj and producer, but also founder of Rennbahn Records and booking agent for one of Hamburgs biggest techno club “Docks”. With his friend Thomas Jager, he runs the own imprint, where artists such as Rodriguez Jr., Basti Grub, Oliver Schories, Sascha Braemer, Matthias Meyer & Patlac or Andreas Henneberg made tracks for. In keeping with the motto “sometimes we make music, sometimes we make party”, they also present several well-known events in Hamburg regularly, e.g. the “WEIRD Festival”.
In the beginning of 2009, Miyagi got to know the Berlin producer Ronald Christoph with whom he got along immediately. Together, they started the project “Miyagi & Ronald Christoph”. A few months later, their first common track “No Fashion” got released on the own imprint “Rennbahn Records”. The big success put the record on the Cocoon compilation “Party Animals 2010″.
Miyagi’s musical style is influenced by deep & tech house with slightly hypnotic techno sounds. His productions will be released on labels like Rennbahn, Jett Rec. or Oliver Schories imprint der turnbeutel. Well known artist such as Sasse, The Glitz, Jaxson & David Keno or Sascha Braemer & Dan Caster made remixes for him.
In the last years he played lots of gigs in Germany, but also in Great Britain, United States, Italy, Belgium, Switzerland or Austria.

It was the late, great novelist and caffeine enthusiast Honoré de Balzac (1799-1850) who said, “Power is not revealed by striking hard or often, but by striking true.” And yet High On Fire have managed to do all three. Since the Oakland power trio’s inception in 1998 they’ve released six earth-splitting albums, each seemingly more unstoppable than the last. Forever haunting the halls of the Iommic Temple—the band’s own philosophical monument to Black Sabbath riff master Tony Iommi—High On Fire have become legends in their own time. As bong-huffing genre music rises and falls around them like so much windborne detritus, guitarist/vocalist Matt Pike, drummer Des Kensel and bassist Jeff Matz comprise the all-seeing eye of a perpetual riff-storm, always looking toward a future in which The End is always near.
After unleashing one of the most momentous debuts in the history of heavy music with 2000’s The Art Of Self-Defense, High On Fire doubled down in 2002 with the absolutely punishing Surrounded By Thieves, an album that even notoriously finicky music website Pitchfork rated an 8.8 out of 10. “Surrounded By Thieves pushes drones to its limits, with a crushing wall of bass tones guaranteed to alter heart rhythms and weaken building infrastructures,” they gushed, before adding the obvious disclaimer: “If you’ve never experienced street drugs, it’s a safe bet you probably won’t enjoy this album.”
And the hits just kept on coming: High On Fire’s 2005 album, Blessed Black Wings, was named one of the top 50 albums of the 21st century by prominent UK music weekly Kerrang! In 2007, the band’s Death Is This Communion ranked # 3 on Revolver magazine’s year-end list, while landing the # 4 spot in Total Guitar. That same year, Matt Pike was named one of rock’s “New Guitar Gods” by Rolling Stone.
Fast forward to 2012 and High On Fire’s new album, De Vermis Mysteriis. Produced by Converge guitarist Kurt Ballou at God City Studios in Salem, MA, the record marks the next devastating chapter in High On Fire’s gloriously unhinged metal saga. “It’s a fuckin’ awesome album,” Pike enthuses. “I think it’s kind of a cross between the experimentation of Death Is This Communion and the driving darkness of Blessed Black Wings. There’s plenty of thrashy stuff, but there’s also a lot of Sabbathy doom-type stuff.”
“We didn’t try to plan it all out this time,” he adds. “We kind of waited ’til we were on the spot and had to do something. We had the basic skeletons of the songs—we were prepared—but there was a lot of improvisation. There’s a lot of soul on this one, and it’s got a rollercoaster kind of feel.”
The album’s title (translation: “The Mysteries of the Worm,”) is a nod to a fictional grimoire conceived by the late, great Psycho author Robert Bloch in 1935 and later incorporated into horror master H.P. Lovecraft’s renowned Cthulu Mythos. “It’s a concept record, a little bit,” Pike offers. “I got this idea about Jesus Christ and the Immaculate Conception: What if Jesus had a twin who died at birth to give Jesus his life? And then what if the twin became a time traveler right then? He lives his life only going forward until he finds this scroll from an ancient Chinese alchemist who derived a serum out of the black lotus—which is actually in Robert E. Howard’s ‘Conan’ stories—and then he starts traveling back in time. He can see the past through his ancestors’ eyes, but his enemies can kill him if they kill the ancestor that he’s seeing through at the time. Basically, he keeps waking up in other people’s bodies at bad times. It’s kinda like that old TV show Quantum Leap. Kurt actually pointed that out to me after I told him the idea. But whatever—time travel is a killer concept.”
“Most people won’t even get it, so I’m explaining it now—once,” he concludes. “After this, I’m done telling the story to people. So please make sure this gets printed.”
ANTI RITUAL (dk)
Anti-Ritual is a new band consisting of four experienced musicians with roots in the Copenhagen hardcore and metal scene. The 16 minutes of music on the band’s eponymous debut ep can be described as a bastard of hardcore, sludge and black metal taking its own form beyond genre descriptions conveying aggression and negative feelings in musical form…

Cattle Decapitation have cancelled – There is nothing we can do at this hour. Ticket price has been lowered a wee bit, but the expenses for us KB18 is almost the same, so we will also loose on this.
They Write: ”
“We regret to inform our fans that due to unforeseen circumstances that are beyond our control, Cattle Decapitation will not be able to perform at the upcoming European tour. We were looking very forward to touring with Possessed as well as performing at all of the festivals so this is very disappointing to us. We would like to thank everyone for their hard work, and understanding during this time.’ ”
We hope for your understanding and for a great show still.
Few bands have done more to push the boundaries of extreme metal than the legendary Possessed. Even fewer can create a unique style which continues to set them apart from all others in a genre they laid the foundation for.
Mike Torrao (guitar), Mike Sus (drums) and Barry Fisk (vocals) got their start playing covers of bands like Judas Priest and Iron Maiden. After Fisk’s unfortunate suicide, Torrao and Sus recruited singer/bassist Jeff Becerra from local metal band Blizzard to form a new band – Possessed – whose name would eventually be known by heavy music fanatics worldwide.
Possessed took San Francisco’s metal scene by storm, playing with fellow Bay Area thrashers and friends Exodus, and other bands- many now long gone. In 1982-1983, they recorded a four song demo. One of the demo tracks, “Swing of the Axe” ended up on the Metal Massacre 6 compilation and later on “The Best of Metal Massacre.”
While starting to make waves in the metal community, Possessed replaced guitarist Brian Montana, whose dedication to the band had waned. To fill the void left by Montana, Jeff Becerra recruited friend and Blizzard band mate Larry LaLonde. LaLonde’s passion for guitar and home-grown style fit Possessed perfectly; roughly six months after LaLonde joined Possessed, they signed to Combat Records.
Released in October 1985 on Combat Records, Seven Churches set a new standard for extreme music. Combining Torraro and LaLonde’s lighting fast riffs, Becerra’s raspy trademark growl and speedy bass playing, Sus’s pummeling drums and Randy Burns’ production, Seven Churches created a whole new genre of music- death metal. Written by primarily by Torrao and Becerra, Seven Churches went on to be one of Combat Records’ best-selling albums. Not bad for a quartet of high school kids!
Torrao and Becerra teamed up with LaLonde to write Beyond the Gates. Released on Halloween in 1986, this album was especially well-received in Europe where they toured at the end of the year. The album that changed the landscape of heavy metal, Seven Churches is the bar by which death metal albums are still measured.
After that tour, Possessed recorded and released Eyes of Horror, a five song EP produced by Joe Satriani. Musically and lyrically advanced, the album touched on dark themes such as sin, drugs and violence. Not long after the release of the EP, LaLonde joined up with Les Claypool and Primus. Soon after, Sus left to continue his studies at SFSU and Torrao decided he no longer wanted to play in a band. Becerra continued to play and joined some side projects, but mostly took time to pursue his goals in life. At one point, Torrao attempted to re-create Possessed, but this attempt was short lived.
In 2004, Becerra joined with Sadistic Intent to record “The Exorcist” for a Possessed tribute album. Becerra and Sadistic Intent decided to do a few live shows to satisfy fans who had been clamoring for shows for decades. With such a positive response, Becerra and Sadistic Intent continued to play a number of successful shows, including Wacken 2007, Maryland Deathfest 2009, and 2010’s Blackest of the Black Tour. This lineup breathed life into Sadistic Intent and Becerra, and the two parties split amicably to play their own styles of metal, with drummer Emilio Marquez staying with Becerra and Possessed.
In 2011, Becerra and Marquez (Asesino, Coffin Texts, ex-Brujeria) found new blood in bassist Robert Cardenas (Masters Of Metal (formally know as Agent Steel), Malice, Coffin Texts, Engrave), along with guitarists Kelly McLauchlin (Pessimist, Diabolic, Unholy Ghost) and Daniel Gonzalez (Nailshitter).
After making several live appearances, including Graspop 2012 & The Fallen Angel 2012 European Tour, this lineup has established Possessed for a new era. The Possessed legacy has been highly influential in the realm of extreme metal, changing the genre forever. Ready to take it further, Possessed is planning several tour dates and writing new material that will change the face of death metal once more.
