Danish metal heads network themselves towards international deals

Text: Steffan Axelsen

The core of new Danish metal music’s new stars was gathered on Friday in the basement of the venue Train as a pre-thing on a night dedicated to metal music. The background for the meeting was nor sound checks or massive intake of alcohol but on the contrary a sober business meeting between Danish artists and international business people from the metal world. Representatives from countries like England, Norway and the Netherlands had taken the trip to this year’s SPOT to meet the Danish metal heads. And right after the meet’n’greet BAEST, LLNN, Orm, Xenoblight, and NYT LIV made Train into a Heaven in Hell. Watch the slide from the reception at the bottom.
