In 2012 Rap rockers Senser also delivered a blinding performance and won over the Hammerfest crowd so much so that they earned themselves an immediate recall.

Moving swiftly on, we bring you Australian Thrash Metallers 4Arm, a cracking band that deserve to be taken notice of.

Plus Trad Metallers and firm Hammer favourites Stuka Squadron, Manchesters Black Metallers Winterfylleth, Prog Metallers Empress who impress, and Welsh Metallers Triaxis.
