This is the first live show ever in Stockholm for Avatarium - joining Inglorious and Grand Magus, more names to be announced soon.

Avatarium deliver a special blend of heavy adventurous music. Think about Jethro Tull, Blue Oyster Cult, Sabbath and Rainbow. It's all there together with some delicate moments of beauty and frailness that you rarely find in a band these days. In Avatarium's music you will also hear tangents of pop and 60s influences.

Avatarium - The Girl with the Raven Mask

Avatarium’s debut that came out a couple of years ago managed to paradoxically intoxicate us with its Candlemass-like riffs being antagonized by Jennie-Ann Smith’s Grace Slick meets Stevie Nicks vocals in a concoction both bizarre but strangely too beautiful and alluring to not consume. An EP allowed the band to buy some time, before Leif announced a break from touring activities due to an undisclosed illness but that didn’t stop the band from composing a new album, which they present to us now, a year later.
