Only days left before hell is unleashed in Oslo! Unfortunately, Headspin will not be performing together with Manifest and Chton at the Morningstar Music Inferno Club Night. This held us all in a state of pure shock, afraid that everyone would not get their much needed fix of thrash metal at Inferno 2012. Luckily, the rescue came from the great Hellist Outcast...puh......!

Official press release from Morningstar Music:

***Morningstar Music – Inferno Club night Lineup changes***

Because of reasons out of our control Headspin has to withdraw their appearance at Morningstar Music’s Inferno Club Night on Wednesday April 4th.

Of course we’re not leaving you without any thrash metal this night so we’ve found a great replacement in norwegian based Hellish Outcast.

Hellish Outcast play a mix of thrash, death and hardcore and has recently signed with UK based label Transcend Records for their upcoming debut album “Your god will bleed”. So with this strong addition to our lineup there is no doubt where you should be during Inferno Club night!

Here’s the full lineup:

Morningstar Music – Inferno Club night
Time: Wednesday April 4th
Place: Blå, Oslo – Norway

Chton (NO)
Manifest (NO)
Hellish Outcast (NO)
