It’s time for another Thrash Hits festival splash page – and this time it’s for Hammerfest 2014. All of our coverage from the weekend will be linked to on this here post, so make sure you bookmark it as it’s all you’re going to need. Yep. That means individual band coverage (photos, setlists and so on), all the dodgy rumours and awful gossip our team overhears, and every single photo of Wales-based debauchery that Gary Wolstenholme and Jenn McCambridge snap will be here.
1/ ENTHRONED was formed in 1993 by Cernunnos in Namur, Belgium.
He soon recruited guitarist Tsebaoth and later bassist/vocalist Sabathan. The band released

After the label’s demise, Evil Omen Records (a sub-label of Osmose Productions) released ENTHRONED's first full-length release, Prophecies of Pagan Fire. Read more on Last.fm
