This ain't Sparta. It's North Wales. Hammerfest is pleased to welcome Swedish power metal riff lords Sabaton to its already head-crushing lineup. Hot on the heels of their outrageously successful 2010 UK tour, the Grammy-nominated finger-shredding purveyors of progressively-tinged power metal about historical wars are sure to bring the house down.

Following the sold out inaugural Hammerfest in 2009 and Hammerfest II in 2010, Hard Rock Hell and Metal Hammer are proud to announce Hammerfest III…

Roma Victa is set to blow your minds once again this spring and beyond as we move into new territories. HF III will be on show in all her glory, next March 18th and 19th at our sacred Temple in Prestatyn, where many a sacrifice has been made to ensure the fortune of all those who venture into its realms. Hammerfest III is put together by Hard Rock Hell (the people behind the hugely successful sold out HRH I, II, III and IV) and the legendary Metal Hammer magazine.

In addition to Sabaton, ther 5 bands include heavy metal and hardcore punk legends, Biohazard, who are celebrating their 20th anniversary with a new album and now a one way ticket to blast the FK out the UK with a rare appearance, couple that with American Thrash Lords,…. the mighty, multi resourceful.. Municipal Waste and were off the blocks and setting the tone for a very special encounter indeed. Hammerfest III is open to anyone aged 16 and over.

From the UK, we have three new legions in the form of Mutant, Revoker (who have just signed to Roadrunner) and HF heroes Attica Rage who are just about launch their second album.

There will be over 50 Metal nuggets performing over the three days and quite a few enchanted surprises as we witness our new battleground…Roma Victa, a 360, roman themed, metal experience designed by the people for the people. Last years Hammerfest, sold out, 2 months in advance, in what has been described as some, as the worst year in history, so with nearly 40% on the blocks before we even launch who knows how quick this will go, but be assured that this will be the loudest, baddest mutha fkn event on the planet this spring, which will be sure to kick your ass!!!

Tickets include two nights’ accommodation and entrance to all 6 arenas as well as free car parking. Tickets are on sale now. For further information and ticket sales

Hammerfest 6 (Book of the Dead) (March 14th/15th 2014)

Festival promoter John Davis of Chic Talent said "Following last year’s event, which included both Sodom and Destruction, we were really keen to have Germany’s other leading thrash metal act play at Hammerfest. We are glad to be able to announce Kreator's inclusion in this year’s bill. Last year’s event was considered by many to be our best yet. Thriving in its new location Hafan y Mor Park, North Wales, we aim to raise the bar higher still.

Kreator released their 13th studio album in 2012 titled ‘Phantom Antichrist’ on Nucleur Blast Records.

Also celebrating all things Thrash, Hammerfest is pleased to announce US Thrash gods Overkill. The seminal thrash metal veterans fronted by Bobby "Blitz"Ellsworth similarly bring their uptempo unique fiery brand of thrash to next Spring’s event and will head the Friday night line-up.

To watch their classic track –Bring me the Night click below.

Next joining the Hammerfest party are two Swedish Death Metal favourites. Firstly, the more melodic and majorly revered Soilwork who coincidently are also signed to Nucleur Blast Records, honour us with their presence and join the Friday nights billing.

Secondly, Swedish stoic Death Metallers Unleashed who released their 11th album ‘Odalheim’ last year to great critical acclaim, bring their unique and heavy brand of Viking metal to Hammerfest and in keeping with the above acts are also signed to Nucleur Blast Records.

To watch Unleashed - Before the Creation of Time click below.

Also joining the Hammerfest 2014 bill are Swedish Metal act Grand Magus , Belgium Black Metallers Enthroned, speed/power metal veterans Paragon (who play the UK for the first time following a 23 year career in Germany), Nottingham Alternative Metal act Earthtone 9, Gibraltar’s finest flamenco metallers Breed 77 plus Annihilated and Gravil. If that’s not enough to get you excited, we will also be announcing more acts imminently so watch this space. We suggest you grab a ticket quickly for the UK’s top Metal Spring holiday destination.
