Hammerfest 5 (In Fear of the Dragon) is pleased to announce that Germany's finest thrash/black Metal act Sodom will join next Spring's already well received bumper packed line-up, which already features the likes of Hatebreed, Enslaved, Destruction, Iron Savior, Huntress, Napalm Death, M-Pire of Evil, Senser and Evil Scarecrow to name a few.
Sodom are considered as being one of the big three Teutonic thrash Metal acts alongside Destruction (who are also confirmed for next Spring's event), they are also felt by many to not only of greatly influenced death Metal but also heavily influenced many late eighties and early nineties black Metal bands too.

We are also pleased to welcome Dutch Viking folk Metallers Heidevolk to next spring's Hammerfest, who bring their own unique beer swilling blend of enjoyable yet aggressive folk Metal riffage to the proceedings.
Now if that's not enough for you, we are similarly stoked to announce that one of the hottest female fronted acts in Europe Swedish Heavy Metal act Sister Sin are also jetting in for a one-off Hammerfest special performance.
Other acts just confirmed and added to this weekend's announcement include fretboard favourites Sacred Mother Tongue featuring renowned guitarist Andy James and Italy's favourite thrashers Arthemis featuring shred Metal guitarist Andrea Martongelli. Who will win the battle of the Fretboards? You decide?
Finally to round off this week's announcement we have also confirmed Flayed Disciple, Absolver, Line of Fire and no Hammerfest would be complete without our resident house band Oaf.
