Hammerfest (the festival for metal fans, run by Hard Rock Hell and Metal Hammer) returned for its third year. Taking place on Thursday the 17th of March until Saturday the 19th of March, the festival once again turned the usually peaceful Pontins Holiday Camp in Prestatyn, North Wales, into an explosion of leather, metal and noise.

Featuring bands like Metallica UK, Turisas, Sylosis, Attica Rage, Beholder, Turbowolf. Sabaton and MANY more, Hammerfest III was an even bigger success than the festival's launch in 2009 and the 4000 strong attendance of Hammerfest II in 2010.

Phoenix FM's very own Marcus "The Hindbeast" of the Metal Ashes went to the festival and came back with a boatload of interviews from some of the best names in metal, from home-grown talent to international monsters of rock! Download the interview podcasts below, sit back and prepare to feel the Hammer!
