When ALFAHANNE and Dark Essence Records announced their first “Guess the Guest” competition recently they were pretty sure that the clues would be very easy for fans of the band.  And sure enough the entries poured in as fans guessed that the first guest on the band’s upcoming album would be none other than SHINING frontman and founder NIKLAS KVARFORTH.    An easy one to guess since Kvarforth had already worked with ALFAHANNE both in the studio and live, with his most recent collaboration with the band being a surprise appearance on stage with them at Incineration Festival  in London.

With three more guests to reveal, the second competition was launched today, and this time the clues might not seem as easy to many of their followers.  “This guest is someone we have admired for many years now, but he will probably be the most difficult one to guess.   However,  we’ve provided enough information so that with a little bit of research it shouldn’t be too hard to work out who it is” commented the band.  The clues are as follows:

1) This guest sings in a classic Swedish Black Metal band from Borlänge which started out in 1993 but is currently on hiatus.

2) This guest has released some classic Black Metal underground albums, one of them being “Apokalypsens ängel”

3) This guest’s band released their later albums on their own label Svartvintras Productions

4) In 2008 Norma Evangelium Diaboli released this guest’s box set Förbannade år 1993-2001.

Anyone wishing to enter should email their guess and their name and address to ALFAHANNE’s management on info@pthomasmanagement.com  (use Alfahanne Competition in the Subject line) or drop the band a private message on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/alfahanneofficial by lunch time on the 28th May.   The  winner  will receive a copy of the new album as soon as it is released.
