Upcoming events

A World of Music Festival at the Tivoli, Helsingborg, March 27 – 29, 2014.

On Thursday March 27 the 3 day Festival starts. Totally 20 bands from the region and mainly from Helsingborg will perform on different stages at the Tivol in Helsingborg. Many thanks to the initiators of the Festival, which gives a great opportunity to meet with local bands and their music.

A direct recommendation from metalsouth is to listen to Black Temple (with a few new tracks from a new album in production) 22.30 on Friday March 28, Riot Horse (read here previous articles on Darkane) 19:30, Royal Acid Orchestra 20:15 and The Night Flight Orchestra (read here previous articles on Soilwork) 21:00 on Saturday March 29.

An why not buy tickets for all 3 days and take the chance to make new good acquaintances of local music strenght!

Kayser at the Tivoli, Helsingborg, May 24, 2014.

Yes, yes, February 17, the fantastic comeback album was released, which will be followed up with a gig at the Tivoli. The timing is superb giving us fans a possibility to build up a happy feeling for a great meet on May 24. Kayser will be supported by local Helsingborg band Outrigger, which became nationally known in Sweden as Eurovision participants with their song Echo. They did well and many phone votes were given by metalsouth. Can we call their style ‘Eurometal’?

Black Temple supports Bombus!

On Saturday December 7 at Beta on Öresundsvej 6 in Copenhagen Black Temple (former Odyssey) from Helsingborg ends their support of Bombus from Gothenburg on their Into The Fire European Tour 2013. On this tour it’s the last chance to see and listen to these two outstanding bands together. It’s been great to follow Black Temple via Facebook and great hopes now exists that their mission will be even further spread.

Darkane supports Dark Tranquillity!

Dark Tranquillity’s World Construct tour 2013/2014 lands at Kulturbolaget (KB) in Malmö on Sunday December 8, i.e. this coming weekend. An exellent opportunity to see Darkane again and this time supporting together with bands Harkla and Tristiania from Norway.

More information on these fantastic bands and their natural metalsouth connection can be found on this blog!!

Upcoming events

Bombus and Black Temple – Into The Fire European Tour 2013

How happy we were when it was confirmed that Black Temple will support Bombus on the main part of their European tour this autumn/winter. Tomorrow November 18, the party all starts in Frankfurt, DE, at the Nachtleben. Just check out the band’s respective homepage and Facebook below for more information about tour dates and locations. I definitely aim to be at the Beat in Copenhagen on December 7. An easy train ride on a Saturday afternoon on for a great time and Metalsouth experience. Best of luck for a super successful tour! As here earlier described, based upon the two bands recent live performances all points in the direction of total success!!





Upcoming events

This Saturday November 9, one of my absolute favourite bands, Soilwork, will play at Kulturbolaget (KB) in Malmö.


I have ever since intensely listening through their recorded career tried hard to see them live. Soilwork also opened my eyes for the metal, which originates from this area south of Helsingborg. More on that later. At Metaltown in Gothenburg this passed summer the dream came true. It was a fantastic hour and to now see them at KB in Malmö as a headline act on Saturday will be a feast! 

Upcoming events

Tomorrow Friday October 25, we welcome Danko Jones with support of Swedish band Bombus, who play at the main stage at Tivoli here in Helsingborg.

On Saturday October 26, we really look forward to see Odyssey play at the Metal Bar, also at the Tivoli. It’s the last performance with the Odyssey name. Black Temple will be the new name.

It will be a heavy metal weekend, but how heavy happy this is!!
