ICS Vortex, Solefald, God Seed, Gaahls Wyrd and Ihsahn. Many of the shows have been at the Inferno Metal Festival. We are proud to have him back to do a drum clinic on rhythmic mastery.
The name Baard Kolstad is firmly cemented within the international drumming landscape. Renowned for his explosive, frenetic, yet precise techniques (in addition to his trademark topless showmanship), Baard is a reputable and relevant drummer across various musical genres. Starting as a street drummer and YouTube sensation in his teens, he has established himself through international touring and frequent album releases with progressive rock/metal act Leprous and Rendezvous Point. Winner of the 2012 V-drums world championship in LA, Baard is a mainstay of both the Norwegian and world music scene and his skills are second to none.
