Skyclad/Sabbat frontman to headline free festival in September

British metal vocalist Martin Walkyier – best known for his work with fantasy thrash metallers Sabbat and folk metal titans Skyclad – will headline the Viking Festival on September 22nd.

The “heathen arts and music festival” is to be held at Nottingham Irish Centre and admission is absolutely FREE of charge!  Walkyier adds that although the event is free, patrons will be asked in return to make a donation – no matter how small or large – to Cancer Research.

For his headline slot, Walkyier is said to be revisiting key moments from the Skyclad catalogue, most of which is now out of print.

Also apprearing will be Bull-Riff Stampede, Severed Heaven, Eibon La Furies, Khyton, A Vulgar Picture, Rezinwolf, Cynegetics and Grim Rita.
