It’s heavy. It’s harmonic. It’s Elephant Tree. In 2016 this UK-based band blew the underground scene away with their self titled album “Elephant Tree”. After the release the band has received plenty of praise. Metal Injection wrote “There is something transcendent about Elephant Tree and the deeper you delve into sitar padded riffs and wide open vocal lines the easier it becomes to realize, this is a band who could turn the doom world on it’s head”. Elephant Tree is also heavily involved in the crowdfunded animated movie project, “The Planet of Doom”, which will be released during 2018.
Elephant Tree says:
“When we heard that we were going to be playing in Norway Jack just fell down stiff on the floor. We thought he was dead but it turns out he was just pining for the fjords.
Coming to Oslo is something we’ve always talked about wanting to do but never been offered, until Høstsabbat got in touch that is! We know there are at least a few people who listen to us in the Scandinavian region and we are stoked to be able to bring our music to them. We also really like fish.”
We’re stoked to present them at Høstsabbat, SATURDAY 6TH OCTOBER.

Oslo! During the year we’re going to do some collaborations with the great people at Vaterland. It will be kicked off next Saturday at Musikkfest with heavy DJ sets from Høstsabbat people, and we’ll hand out a couple of tickets to the festival too. Good times! Hope to see you there.
HØSTSABBAT 2018 – SPOTIFY PLAYLIST:
Straight from the wilderness in Salt Lake City comes the crushing sludge band Eagle Twin. They just realeased a new album, “The Thundering Heard”, which Pitchfork has named one of the stoner-metal highlights of 2018.
Eagle Twin says: “We are so excited to worship the riff in a church in Norway! To bow to the altar of amps and electrify the ether from the rafters down to the earth.”
We can´t wait for Eagle Twin to electrify the basement stage, FRIDAY OCTOBER 5TH.
Høstsabbat is only five months away, but it feels like an eternity. While you wait, tune in to our playlist loaded with heavy riffs.
The countdown has begun.

Please welcome the headliner of Høstsabbat 2018!
When we first landed Church JAKOB as this years’ venue, a couple of bands came to mind as the perfect bookings..
And it is with massive pride we are able to announce our first choice, the legends in the Belgian five piece, Amenra . What could possibly be a more fitting closure to this years event than the founders of the Church of RA-collective?
To witness Amenra from a stage is something you won’t forget. It’s cleansing, ritualistic, nihilistic, scary, painful and in the most accurate sense of the word; mindblowing. Their attention to detail in performance, riffs and visuals can hardly be described as anything but spellbinding, and to have this complete package in a church, downtown Oslo.. well what to say?
On top of this, their recent masterpiece “MASS VI”, put Amenra in a different league all together, as the Neurot Records release was hailed as one of the absolute best metal records of 2017. Also bringing them onboard two massive US-tours alongside label bosses Neurosis and Converge.
On October 6th they grace Church JAKOB with their presence. Are you in?
Two bands left!
Before we announce this year’s main headliner, we have a final and kickass Norwegian act to unveil.
Touring Europe as we speak, the re-invented five piece version of Oslo’s stoner legends Lonely Kamel will make a joyful return to Høstsabbat, as they deserve.
Their new album “Death’s-Head Hawkmoth” was released about a month ago on the stellarStickman Records, putting the Kamel’s in the top shelf of European underground rock.
Lonely Kamel have played more or less every underground festival there is European soil, from Duna Jam, to Roadburn, to Desertfest, to Up in Smoke..you name it, and they have toured massively for years, making them an easy act to love.
We’re eager to welcome these blues and boozehounds back, as should you!
Today is not a Friday, but what the hell.. Let’s go!
We will complete the lineup for Høstsabbat 2018 over the next three days, announcing one band each day, and for starters, we are extremely proud to present the two-headed beast that is Eagle Twin (US). Probably one of the best live acts around, and a huge favorite in our camp. Being somewhat of a benchmark for what two guys can make out of their instruments and hands, we will bow to their wall of sound.
The guys from Utah just released their new album “The Thundering Heard” to massive praise, and will set out for a short span of shows in Europe in October. After trying to have Eagle Twin over for several years, we are stoked to tell they will start their Euro run at Høstsabbat Friday October 5th.
What else to say, than the Eagle has landed.
Friday! Oooh… this week has been awesome. Finally the tickets for this years’ Høstsabbat went live, and we couldn’t be happier with the lineup so far.
BUT! We still have some gems to announce for you guys.
We’ve been gathering souls and sinners since we first started, so this year we’re adding moths to the list. The Moth Gatherer out of Stockholm/Gøteborg is a force of nature when they hit the stage. Their sound leaning towards super heavy post-rock, mixed with jazzy drums, fierce vocals, pure energy and tasty electronic samples, make them a class-act to witness. We had them over for a club night some years ago, and we’re stoked to have them on our festival bill this time. Known for bringing guest vocalists to their recordings, spanning from from Refused’s Dennis Lyxzen , to Thomas Jäger from Monolord, The Moth Gatherer just finished their upcoming album in Studio Underjord some days ago, and rumours has it they’ve outdone themselves again.
We can’t wait for some new material to be unleashed from the stage! Gather the souls, gather the sinners, gather the moths \m/
