With their second full-length album appearing in various “Best Of 2015 Releases” lists, and work beginning on a follow up, Sweden’s self-styled “Alfapokalyptic” rockers ALFAHANNE will be joined on stage by special guests during a couple of the band’s upcoming shows. OFERMOD’s R. Fjäll will appear with ALFAHANNE during their show at Copperfield’s in Stockholm on the 6th of February, and once again when the band plays on the Close-Up Båten Cruise which sets sail from Stockholm on the 10th of March. Also joining them on stage during the cruise will be KVELERTAK frontman Erlend Hjelvik.
ALFAHANNE are definitely no strangers to appearing either on stage or in the studio, and frequently both, with special guests who have included some iconic names in Extreme Metal, including TAAKE’s Hoest, SHINING’s Niklas Kvarforth, HELHEIM’s V’gandr, HORNA’s Spellgoth, SORHIN’s Nattfursth, and KVELERTAK’s Erlend Hjelvik. It is a testament to the band’s musical appeal that they have been able to tempt artists such as these to collaborate with them, whilst frontman Pehr Skjoldhammer has, in turn, guested on the latest album from HELHEIM and has frequently worked with SHINING and Niklas Kvarforth.
With their first two albums released on Dark Essence Records and a couple of decades of experience in bands such as VINTERLAND and early MAZE OF TORMENT, ALFAHANNE’s lineup is comprised of Pehr Skjoldhammer on Vocals and Guitar, Fredrik Sööberg on Guitars, Niklas Åström on Drums and Jimmy Wiberg on Bass. Their instantly recognisable brand of high energy Black Metal, which is liberally laced with Punk and Classic Rock, oozes swagger and attitude, and has proven to be a hit with fans and critics alike, whilst the infectious energy that permeates their stage shows consistently wins them plaudits and new fans from across a wide-ranging musical spectrum.
