FORTRESS FESTIVAL adds ANTE-INFERNO & ANDRACCA

 


UK black metal bands Ante-Inferno and Andracca are the latest additions to Fortress Festival, which will take place on 1-2 June 2024 at Scarborough Spa in Scarborough, North Yorkshire, UK.

The announcement comes as Andracca have released their second full-length album “To Bare the Weight of Death” via Vendetta Records in January 2024, while Ante-Inferno are gearing for a new, third album release and more UK/European tour dates. Ante-Inferno’s latest album “Antediluvian Dreamscapes” was released in 2022 via Vendetta Records to critical acclaim.

Andracca commented on their upcoming Fortress Festival appearance: "We greatly anticipate returning to Fortress Festival, alongside the strongest Black Metal line-up we've seen so far in the UK, armed with a brand new album. It will be a pleasure to play our part in the aural assault!"

Ante-Inferno added: "We ready ourselves to return once more to the Fortress – one year since we unleashed our frenzied battle cry into the fervent horde that we found there within its walls of mouldering stone. We celebrate our arrival with more than mere words. It will mark a year spent crafting and recording what will soon become our third full-length release. A year of leaning over the bubbling cauldron of life and death, invoking new, diabolic compositions into existence."

Ante-Inferno and Andracca join a stellar line-up of special bands and exclusive shows with four more bands to be announced in early 2024. Previously confirmed bands include Triptykon with a 2024 UK exclusive and mainstage headlining show, Wolves in the Throne Room with a 2024 UK exclusive and mainstage headline “Two Hunters” set (the first time the iconic album will be performed live in the UK), second stage headliners Misþyrming with a 2024 UK exclusive show, second stage headliners Regarde Les Hommes Tomber with a UK exclusive show for 2024, Blackbraid with a debut and exclusive UK show, Panopticon with a 'Roads to the North' anniversary full album set, Der Weg Einer Freiheit with a UK exclusive show, Furia with an exclusive UK show, and Fluisteraars with a debut and exclusive UK show.

Fortress Festival will also be witness to an appearance by Portuguese act Gaerea, a UK exclusive show from Brazilian “depressive black metal” band Thy Light, a return to the UK with an exclusive show from German black metallers Ultha, a UK exclusive set from Bavarian-based Waldgeflüster, a UK exclusive set from Sweden’s Dödsrit, UK black metal act Blood Countess, Obsidian Kingdom with a UK exclusive ‘Mantiis' full album set, Fellwarden with its worldwide live debut, Lamp of Murmuur with a UK exclusive performance, Falls of Rauros with their first ever UK show, Danish atmospheric black metal band Sunken and UK black-death-doom act Abyssal and US atmospheric death metal band Mortiferum.

The event is almost sold out. Standard weekend and day tickets are still available via https://www.fortressfestival.co.uk/tickets

The First of June. 2024... Under the watchful gaze of the carrion crows that beset the castle’s crumbling battlements…the hordes of darkness will stir. The mournful bells of the woebegone church will ring out upon the hillside: soon to be lost amid the ravenous battery of an ancient warlord. And from the ashes of the past, a new stronghold will arise… “Fortress…”

The band combines existential lyrics about the human experience with blistering instrumentation.

The band teamed with renowned producer Kane Churko (Five Finger Death Punch, In This Moment, Ozzy Osbourne, Papa Roach) on the EP and new focus track ‘ Joke ”. Vocalist Caesar says of ‘Joke’: “The song reflects the illusory nature of the self, both in cyberspace and the physical world. No one is entirely what they may think or claim to be, even the most insightful among us. Moreover, today's technological trends and social platforms seem to have amplified our tendency toward self-delusion." He continues: "Maintaining a healthy sense of humility and open-mindedness can be challenging under more traditio
