Says Beyond the Gates festival boss, Torgrim Øyre:
– Beyond the Gates 2020 is by far the biggest and most ambitious metal event in Bergen ever. Being so fortunate as to have a band like Mercyful Fate headlining the event is certainly a dream come true.
The band will perform one of very few indoor shows this summer in the iconic Grieghallen, one of Norway’s most revered concert venues. This is also where legendary albums like Mayhem’s “De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas”, Emperor’s “In the Nightside Eclipse”, Immortal’s “Battles in the North”and Enslaved’s “Frost” were recorded.
The festival will run for four days, each loosely based on different concepts with Heilung, Sodom, Mercyful Fate and Opeth headlining their respective days.  Øyre says:
The festival has a very diverse bill this year with all four days moving in different directions, from black metal, via alternative music and prog, as well as more traditional metal, we feel that we are branching out. Bands are going out of their way to make this a special occasion. Mercyful Fate will be joined by Candlemass, who will perform the seminal doom classic “Nightfall” in its entirety, and Enslaved will perform one of modern prog metals finest hours, “Below the Lights”. Needless to say, we are very excited indeed.
The festival will utilize three different concert venues and promises to include black metal landmark sight-seeing, signing sessions, listening parties, panels, in-depth live interviews and DJ’s – lots of events and activities that hopefully will give you a Beyond the Gates Experience that will last for a lifetime.
