The dust has only just settled on Hammerfest X but a whole host of metal’s finest have already signed up for the loudest festival of 2019.

American thrashers Overkill lead the charge after Bobby ‘Blitz’ Ellsworth and co. confirmed they’d headline Friday’s bill at Hammerfest XI.

And Halifax goth metal maestros Paradise Lost will set the seal on this year’s 30th anniversary celebrations by closing Thursday’s main stage.

A weekend of intense riffage will welcome Brooklyn bruisers Pist.On plus Reign Of Fury to the Hammerfest fold.

And there will be similarly brutal sets from Reign Of Fury, Sworn Amongst and Absolva.

Saturday’s main stage headliner remains a closely guarded secret but chances are yet another of metal’s greats will roll into Camp HRH – following in the footsteps of Sepultura and Skindred.
