There are just two months left until IN FLAMES’ first annual festival, Borgholm Brinner, takes place from July 27th – 28th, at the historical Borgholm Castle on the island of Öland. As the Swedish summer lurks just around the corner, we‘re very excited to present the last two acts for IN FLAMES’ new festival; SATYRICON (NO) and DARK TRANQUILLITY (SE)!
IN FLAMES singer, Anders Fridén, said about the latest additions; “We‘re happy to announce the final additions that complete the line-up of our festival, Borgholm Brinner this July. Please welcome our brothers in DARK TRANQUILLITY whom we look forward to sharing the stage with for the first time in years, and our friends in SATYRICON. We can‘t wait to bring the energy of all of these artists into such a unique atmosphere as the Borgholm Castle. It‘s going to be an unforgettable weekend!”
SATYRICON are one of the most important bands in defining the Norwegian wave and style of black metal during the 90‘s. The Oslo band made the world aware of Norwegian black metal and have since evolved into a more traditional heavy metal sound over their past few releases. Their ninth album was released in late 2017 and dubbed a “game changer” by Blabbermouth, with a 9/10 rating. We can‘t wait to see what Satyr and Frost will bring to Borgholm Brinner this summer!
DARK TRANQUILLITY share their hometown with headliner and festival hosts IN FLAMES and are considered one of the pioneering acts of the Gothenburg metal scene. Carving their name into the melodic death metal scene in the late 80‘s with Anders Fridén of IN FLAMES as the lead singer of the band for the first five years, the bands will join together again at Borgholm Brinner for the first time in years. The five current members (with lead singer Mikael Stanne) have been touring the world, playing classic festivals and big stages with eleven celebrated albums to choose songs from. We look forward to another Gothenburg addition to the Öland festival in July!
