Pandæmonium stage, Friday 22.

Arch Enemy, Copenhell 2018

The Brutality That Came To Us Hades stage, Thursday 21. June: What…just…happened? The Swedish brutality exploded on the old B&W ship yard, as Alissa White-Gluz and her gutsy growling vocals ripped Copenhell a new one. As Motörhead’s “Ace Of Spades” blasted through the speakers, the band came on stage, gripped their instruments, and just started playing. As in, igniting a nuclear weapon.
