INFO BIOGRAPHY

JOTNAR is an aggressive melodic metal band, which offers a redesigned and modern sound, hitting a potent blend of strong and aggressive rhythms with very pronounced melodies, achieving a perfect balance between both sides and taking modern metal to the next level and thus generating a whole new genre of prolific music.
Guitars offer powerful and demolishing riffs in combination to smooth melodies, reinforced with the strength and hunger of the insane growls perfectly mixed with catchy melodies and choruses, highlighting the final band’s distinctive signature sound.

JOTNAR has offered a large amounts of shows around Europe, from small venues to big festivals, consolidating a solid and powerful live performance, which has lead them to reach some of the most important metal festivals in Europe, like Metalcamp/Metaldays in Slovenia, “RockBitch Boat” in Sweden or “Villa de Bilbao” in Spain, and played with iconic bands like Korn, Amon Amarth, Machine Head, Hatebreed, among others...

JOTNAR has a very powerful show, not only being able to perfectly capture and recreate the main essence of the studio recordings but also adding their rage and devastating punch in live performances, recruiting new fans after every show.
