The lineup for the first installment of Scorched Tundra Festival set to take place December 28th at Sticky Fingers in Gothenburg, Sweden has been announced and as follows:


Scorched Tundra Festival is for the metal community of Gothenburg that has continued to support and churn out incredibly talented bands for over two decades. More information can be found at and tickets are available at

The following are Pivotal Rockordings artists performing whose albums have been released digitally in all major web-retail outlets and streaming services on December 5th with the exception of ELDRIMNER, whose release date will be in 2012.

AGE OF WOE is comprised of members from END OF ALL, MASSMORD, THE PROCESS and NO HAWAII, the band is fueled by the desire to explore new soundscapes in the vast landscapes of punk and metal, leaving the Gothenburg sound in the dust.  Age of Woe was recorded and mixed at Belly of the Whale Studio in Gothenburg with Carlos Sepulveda (NO HAWAII, JOE BARESI, PSYCORE) and mastered by Ulf Blomberg of HoboRec (GRACE.WILL.FALL, COUNTERBLAST, MASSMORD.) The leading single “The Antagonist” is available on the band’s brand new website at

ELDRIMNER was founded in 2006, immediately playing shows regularly with other groups in the Gothenburg black metal scene.  Over the following years, the band’s original black metal sound progressed, taking inspiration from groups as varied as MESHUGGAH and THE DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN.  In 2009, ELDRIMNER released an EP entitled I mitt jag which was recorded, mixed and mastered with Marko Tervonen (THE CROWN, ANGEL BLAKE) at Studio MT in Trollhätan and was followed up by shows on the West Coast of Sweden, including a critically acclaimed appearance at Metal Town in 2010.  The band’s new material – which features all Swedish lyrics and guest appearances – will be recorded early next year for a Spring 2012 release.

MARIONETTE’s third full-length album Nerve, the follow up to their 2009 release Enemies, was recorded at Studio Fredman with producer Fredrik Nordström (IN FLAMES, DIMMU BORGIR, AT THE GATES), was mixed by DEAD BY APRIL songwriter Pontus Hjelm at Studio PH in Gothenburg and was mastered by Erik Broheden (RAMMSTEIN, TURBONEGRO, WITHIN TEMPTATION) at Masters of Audio Studio in Stockholm, Sweden.  Artwork for the release was handled by Gustavo Sazes of Abstrata Design (ARCH ENEMY, FIREWIND).  The song “Stand In Line” can be streamed at the following URL:
