Renowned worldwide for the past 30 years, Swiss Black Metal scene owes its fame primarily to bands like Hellhammer, Celtic Frost and Samael. In parallel to the major formations mentioned above, Swiss Black Metal scene did not know any peace between the formation of Hellhammer in 1982 and today. Quite the contrary.
More than 30 years and a bit after its first Black Metal band was born, a handful of activists from Geneva’s Underground culture are gathering to organize a major cultural event which focus is to rehabilitate and pay tribute to Black Metal, this hidden part of Switzerland’s musical heritage.
Therefore, it’s with infinite honor and pleasure that we announce you the full line-up for this very unique three-days celebration.
With the likes of DARKSPACE, BORGNE, BÖLZER, RORCAL, and many more, we intend to pay tribute to the greatest facet of the Swiss Underground Black Metal scene.
