The group comprises vocalist Erlend Hjelvik, guitarists Vidar Landa, Bjarte Lund Rolland and Maciek Ofstad, bassist Marvin Nygaard and drummer Kjetil Gjermundrød. The band's self-titled debut album was released in 2010 and was certified gold by the International Federation of the Phonographic Industry for selling more than 15,000 copies.

Lyrics are written in Norwegian and concerning Norse mythology/Viking folklore. Known for their consistent, idiosyncratic sound, the band states that their main influences are rock and roll, black metal and punk. The band has been featured in the English music magazines Metal Hammer, Kerrang and Rock Sound.

    I may be running a few minutes late... probably arrive closer to 6.45pm. It's normally fairly easy to spot the Meetup group. But if not, text me on:[masked]

      Take Alex's reply, swap ghost for clutch, 630 for 7 and keep the beer - and that's me!

    This is going to be fantastic. Finally a headline slot. I wonder if they'll still work their own merch desk?
