Golden Core (NO)
Golden Core are a Norwegian-Icelandic metal duo who have ravaged the Oslo underground scene since 2014. Only 15 and 17 years old, Thor Sandal and Simen Jakobsen have devoted their teenage years to worshipping the dark forces of music. They do so in style, and their talent is overwhelmingly apparent. As for genre, they play a hybrid of stoner metal, noise rock and doom with a lyrical universe revolving around Nordic traditions.
