Hammerfest 2013: Arthemis – Friday, 15 March 2013

Arthemis at Hammerfest 2013 by Gary Wolstenholme Thrash Hits

According to their setlist, Arthemis played a song called ‘Metal Hammer’ at Metal Hammer’s Hammerfest Festival. Try saying that sentence six times quickly.

Hard Rock Hell’s continued elevation of certain so-so bands to their line-ups is baffling. There are names on the bill today that only ever seem to appear at HRH organised events; Italian power metallers Arthemis are one such band. Their sustained prominence at these things must surely be down to some heavy duty nepotism since their whole set lacks any real conviction or interesting delivery. The only minor redemption is in the fact that their frontman grins throughout with a kind of gratitude that only a man who has sidled his way onto a decent live slot must have.
