Over the past few weeks fans of Sweden’s ALFAHANNE have been having a bit of fun by entering a competition to win a copy of the band’s next album by guessing who the guests will be on the upcoming release. With two guests and two winners already announced, the band and their label, Dark Essence Records, have now announced that the third guest will be KVELERTAK frontman Erlend Hjelvik (photo below). He will be joining SHINING’s Niklas Kvarforth, and SORHIN’s Nattursth on what will be the self-styled Alfapocalyptic Rockers’ sophomore full-length album, which is due for release in the Autumn.
With only one more guest left to announce, and one CD left to win, the clues to the final “Guess the Guest” competition are as follows:
1) This guest is the vocalist for one of the top Finnish Black Metal bands which was originally formed in 1993
2) The meaning of the Finnish name of this guest’s band is “abyss”
3) When one of the early vocalists with this guest’s band left, he became the musician that is known today as Satanic Warmaster’s Werwolf.
4) This guest will be appearing at the Tuska Open Air Festival Pre-Party this year, fronting another of his bands, TURMION KÄTILÖT, the day before Alfahanne themselves are due to appear at the festival
Anyone wishing to enter the ALFAHANNE / DARK ESSENCE RECORDS “Guess the Guest” competition should email their guess and their name and address to ALFAHANNE’s management on email@example.com (use Alfahanne Competition in the Subject line) or drop the band a private message on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/alfahanneofficial by the 11th June. The winner will receive a copy of the new album as soon as it is released.
