oration prepares for third, and last, edition

It is a sad fact that all things must come to an end, especially those that we want to stay here forever.

Next year the Icelandic Black Metal festival Oration will be held in Reykjavík for the third, and last, time. For it’s first installment in 2015 the organizers showed what they were capable of when they plucked the best of the Icelandic Black Metal scene along with a handful of international Black Metal acts, putting together a line up that held its own against bigger, more established festivals.

If anyone would have thought that this could not be bested, the organizers proved them wrong, bringing acts like Aosoth, Mgla and Ruins of Beverast to Iceland.

Next year’s edition promises to be a good one, even though we have yet to see a full list of the artists performing there. Below you can see the acts that have already been confirmed.
