Hailing from Mjøndalen, Norway, the much-loved sonic force of the “haymaker” punch delivered by groove metal quartet Frostbitt returns, with the band releasing a brand new video single ahead of their upcoming performance at this year’s Euroblast Festival!

“Inferno” is taken from the band’s 2018 full-length studio album, “Solbrent”, which received praise and acclaim upon release for its mysterious, near-psychotic intensity and chuggy, djent-infused experimentation of sound. With their latest single, Frostbitt once again fuse a dynamic and progressive mesh of influence to a hardened backbone of modern nu-metal, with vocalist Ivan Hansen’s seething performance calling to mind the likes of KoRn front man Jonathan Davis.

Watch the video for “Inferno” below.

“"Inferno" is about giving in”, Hansen explains, giving light to the dark lyrical themes of “Inferno”. “Whether it’s to hate, anger, sorrow, regret or addiction - anything that has been pent up for too long has to come pouring out. It’s about our primal instinct consuming our souls while the human part of us blacks out. Before you know it, your animalistic side has already taken over you entirely. At this point there is only one option: termination. End the suffering by hurting yourself or others. Some people just want to watch the world burn”.

Following the release of “Inferno”, Frostbitt will take to the stage of this year’s Euroblast Festival on Sunday 29th September, joining the likes of The Hirsch Effekt, Kadinja and Between The Buried And Me.

On the subject of their upcoming performance, Hansen expresses excitement at the prospect of bringing “Inferno” to a live audience:
“This song is just meant to be played for a live audience, and we can’t wait to bring it to the Euroblast crowd. "Inferno" belongs on the stage, both in the way it is structured and in the fact that the performance is all about the expression. I have always let my stress and emotions out through music, and to be able to play songs like this live is the ultimate therapy. We always aim to encourage the audience to release whatever dark energy they carry within them, and what better way than to a song such as this, that focuses on our inhuman capacity for pure rage?”...

Despite forming in 2012, Frostbitt’s founding members, Ivan and Steffen Nielsen (drums) have been friends since primary school, starting their first musical project “Subyda” at just 12 years old. Ivan began composing material in a more focused way at 14 years old, and had enough material to record a full length album by the age of 16, subsequently recording several tracks in the renowned Fredman Studio in Sweden. As Frostbitt, the quartet released their self-titled debut album in 2015, have since toured throughout their home country and will soon embark on their first European excursion, on a short run of tour dates.

“Inferno” is available to purchase and stream now via Bandcamp, with their 2018 album “Solbrent” available here. Upcoming tour dates from Frostbitt can be found below.
