Belzebubs (FIN)


Belzebubs is arguably the best ‘virtual’ black metal band in the world. In summer 2020 the band has agreed to play a few carefully selected festival gigs – and one of them happens to be at Ilosaarirock!

Belzebubs is based on a comic strip of the same name by Finnish author and illustrator JP Ahonen. The characters from the comic, Hubbath, Obesyx, Sløth and Samaël, have reached a cult status among their followers both in Finland and abroad. Their first album, The Pantheon of the Nightside Gods, was released in spring 2019, immediately climbing to number two in the Finnish charts. The album has received rave reviews from music critics across the globe, and the announcement that they will finally appear on stage has left fans salivating at the prospect. With such a unique concept, a bunch of hugely talented musicians and a carefully crafted setlist, this gig is going to be one helluva spectacle – in the words of Monty Python: “and now for something completely different...".

One thing is for sure: this show is going to be unlike anything you've ever experienced before!
