TRUCKFIGHTERS is well known around the world in the fuzz/alternative scene. The Örebro-based three piece has released three albums over eleven years, one documentary and have been called “the best band that ever existed” by Josh Homme of QUEENS OF THE STONE AGE. Known for its energetic and entertaining live performances, TRUCKFIGHTERS have performed over 400 live gigs across Australia, Europe, North America and South America including headline tours of Europe and North America this year.
SKITSYSTEM is a crust punk band formed in 1994 by members of several different death metal bands – most notably AT THE GATES – whose common interest lay in D-Beat. The band has gone on to release four full-length albums and several 7” records to date. SKITSYSTEM intends to give fans a preview of brand new material from their upcoming release at Scorched Tundra this December.
KONGH will be performing its first show in Gothenburg in support of its third record Sole Creation at Scorched Tundra. Known for its devastating atmospherics and rich melodies paired with groove laden guitars, KONGH have already racked up numerous accolades including a nomination for P3 Guld Award, #1 Position in Close Up Magazine’s SoundCheck in 2009; performances at Metal Town and Roadburn Festivals; and most recently a Scandinavian run with MESHUGGAH earlier this year.
MOLOKEN was founded in Umeå in 2007 and has since released two highly praised albums Our Astral Circle and Rural. With foundations in 90s death and black metal as well as 70s progressive rock the band has in a short period of time carved out their own unique sound and musical approach. The bands collaborative writing and recording approach, combined with unique production techniques ensure that organic sound on record will be replicated live at Scorched Tundra.
AGE OF WOE released its debut full length album InhumanForm in the spring and have already added to its growing fanbase within the crust/hardcore scenes by touring multiple times in Scandinavia and Central Europe in addition to appearing at numerous festivals: most recently Incubate Festival in Tilburg, Netherlands. Composed of members from NO HAWAII, MASSMORD, and FUTURE RUINS, AGE OF WOE recorded InhumanForm live with legendary producer Lennart Östlund (LED ZEPPELIN, CANDLEMASS). The album was mixed by long-time collaborator Carlos de Sepulveda and mastered by Brad Boatright (SLEEP, HIGH ON FIRE, FROM ASHES RISE). With tours already in the works for 2014 Scorched Tundra is the next step on a path of destruction for AGE OF WOE.
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. The festival is organized annually by Pivotal Rockordings co-owner Alexi Front in association with All Systems Go! and Sticky Fingers.
