Due to the unprecedented demand for additional Australian shows we are delighted to announce Ihsahn will headline new shows in Brisbane & Perth, with Belphegor also headlining one show in Brisbane!

Quite possibly one of the most important, influential and creative forces within the realms of black and extreme metal music, Ihsahn stands a class apart, an artist unafraid of experimenting and creating some of the most unorthodox music ever heard. The Norwegian multi-instrumentalist, composer and vocalist’s ardent passion towards music soon grew into one of the world’s most significant black metal bands, Emperor.

Progressing and evolving quickly, at seventeen, he recorded and performed the incredible In The Nightside Eclipse, a milestone and landmark album in the history of metal, which has been voted many times over as one of the top metal albums of all time. Since then, Ihsahn has divided his time between the metal and avantgarde worlds in projects like Emperor, Thou Shalt Suffer, PeccatumHardingrock and last but not least his ongoing solo vessel, Ihsahn. This will be the first time that Australia witnesses the sheer magnificence and
elegant yet brutal persona of one of the most iconic musicians in the metal world.

Ihsahn with guests will be performing at:

May 4th – Brisbane, Crowbar

May 5th – Sydney, Max Watts (Direct Underground Fest)

May 6th – Melbourne, Max Watts (Direct Underground Fest)

May 7th – Melbourne, Max Watts (SOLD OUT)

May 8th – Perth, Amplifier Bar

Belphegor,  the Austrian Occult metallers are well-known for their glorious, ritualistic live performances that summon the Dark Lord himself, and will be gracing our shores for the very first time to unleash hell. Belphegor have been creating blackened death metal for over two decades with their uncompromising and relentlessly brutal approach, a defining factor of their music. Belphegor will be performing songs from their most recent release Totenritual as well as two decades worth of some of the darkest and most intense music you’ve ever heard.

Belphegor with guests will be performing at:

May 5th – Sydney, Max Watts (Direct Underground Fest)

May 6th – Melbourne, Max Watts (Direct Underground Fest)

May 7th – Brisbane, Crowbar
