Despite what can only be described as Denmark's typically schizophrenic summer weather, this year's Copenhell heavy metal music festival turned out to be a monumental success with several memorable highlights.
With heavyweight headliners Slipknot, Primus, The Darkness and Gojira, Copenhell provided a diverse lineup to satisfy the many shades of metal music preferences in its 2015 incarnation.
With a roster of 42 bands on five stages, the festival offered an abundance of musical experiences, but the grounds were also stocked with plenty alternative forms of entertainment. Copenhell is a carnivalesque venture into the playful, unadulterated metal experiences, complete with the decor of darkness and ambience of the underworld.
We teamed up with our friends at Rockfreaks.net and the terrifically talented photographers Phillip B. Hansen and Lykke Nielsen to bring you the best photos of the festival's three days, highlighting selected concerts and Copenhell's famous atmosphere. See them here.
