BEYOND THE GATES LIVE PRESENTS: ARMY OF THE NORTH STAR TOUR 2018

ENSLAVED // GAAHLS WYRD // VREID

SUPPORT: WHOREDOM RIFE // GEHENNA // ONE TAIL, ONE HEAD


Dear friends, we have some really exciting news to share with you all. In particular our comrades in Norway and Sweden. Beyond the Gates is heading out on tour. In November 2018 we will host the spectacular Army of the North Star Tour 2018.


The spectacular all Norwegian package will be headlined by our long-term friends Enslaved. Joining them is very special guests Gaahls WYRD and Vreid. The trek will be supported by various bands along the route, including Whoredom Rife, Gehenna and One Tail, One Head.


Beyond the Gates and Enslaved has forged a very special bond. Last year’s festival saw the band do an absolutely jaw dropping performance of their debut album “Vikingligr Veldi” in its entirety, leaving fans and critics equally stunned. This year Enslaved will do an exclusive performance of their classic album «Frost» before heading out on the «Army of the North Star» trek in November.


The tour will see the band re-imagine some of their early material, bringing it to life with the experience and craftsmanship of the current incarnation of the band. The set will be paired with songs from their Norwegian Grammy winning and massively acclaimed new album, “E”. How about that for a spring present?


Gaahls WYRD is fronted by legendary metal singer Gaahl, previous front man of Gorgoroth, God Seed and Trelldom. The band will perform material from Gaahl’s catalogue along with material for the upcoming debut album set for release later this year.


Vreid is a well known entity for all fans of extreme metal sub genre, “Sognametal”. The band has recently been in the studio recording the follow up to the 2015 album, “Solverv”.




The “Army of the North Star Tour” aims to bring the Beyond the Gates festival experience to your home town. Stay tuned for updates.

"It feels great to announce that We'll finish a great year with a bunch of concerts in our native Scandinavia! That area has been neglected for far too long! It's great to perform abroad, in North America, Europe, Japan and Australia, but it's always special to perform at home, were it all started. We are also thrilled to join forces with some of Norway's finest acts, so this will be one for the books, definately!"

- Grutle Kjellsson, Enslaved

“I think it’s safe to say that Enslaved knocked everyone sideways last year when they did the “Vikingligr Veldi” album in its entirety at Beyond the Gates. It was a remarkable experience hearing how well this material came across performed by the band with some 20 odd years of added experience. They managed to maintain the spirit of the songs adding a new level of finesse and emotion to it all. Enslaved has always been a band pushing forward, creating new textures and colors to their songs. Their most recent album “E” is a great testimony to that. I can’t wait to get this show on the road and show everyone what 25 + years of Norwegian metal history can manifest in.”


“With special guests Gaahls WYRD, Vreid and a carefully selected set of openers, this tour is going to be strongest metal package that has hit these shores for a very long time. Hope to see you all in November.”
