Roadburn 2015 - Electric Citizen

Ohio’s Electric Citizen Paying Homage to Early ’70s Pro-Metal at Roadburn 2015

Posted: August 27, 2014 at 2:31 pm

Instantly attractive, Ohio’s Electric Citizen rank amongst Roadburn‘s faves in the current upsurge of female-fronted, ’70s proto-metal revivalists thanks to Sateen, their debut album and the band’s homage to forebearers like Sir Lord Baltimore, Pentagram, and the daemonic spirit of Amon Düül. Sateen (out on RidingEasy Records) also draws comparisons […]

Roadburn 2015 - Monolord

Monolord To Mesmerize Roadburn 2015 With Their Subsonic Vibrations

Posted: August 27, 2014 at 2:30 pm

Sweden’s hotly-tipped psychedelic stoner sludge outfit Monolord (as in lords of monolithic riffing) will bring their massive mesmeric, speaker-rumbling amplifier worship to Roadburn Festival 2015 on Thursday, April 9 at the 013 venue in Tilburg, The Netherlands. Sitting perfectly between Sleep’s Dopesmoker and Electric Wizard’s Dopethrone, Monolord’s drugged-out, dark and […]

Lenny Kaye Talks About His Apprearance (w/ Harsh Toke) at Roadburn Festival 2014

Posted: April 30, 2014 at 4:23 pm

“It’s perhaps fitting that Tilburg is the boyhood home of Vincent Van Gogh, since I can only imagine what his missing ear would make of the amps-on-stun overload that characterizes the Roadburn Festival. I am here courtesy of artistic director Walter Hoeijmakers, and Mikael Åkerfeldt of Opeth, who is curating […]

Album of the Day:
Temporarily On Hold
Posted: August 28, 2014 at 5:05 am
Avatar WHITE

Roadburn’s Album of the Day will be temporarily on hold. For the next few days, Norway’s Beyond The Gates will take priority over bringing you the latest releases. We knew you would understand! Album of the Day will return on Wednesday, September 3.

Album of the Day:
Fórn – The Departure Of Consciousness
Posted: August 27, 2014 at 1:26 pm
Forn - The Departure Of Consciousness

Lovingly pinched from The Sleeping Shaman: The Departure of Consciousness is the soundtrack to collapse – the slow, final collapse of a dying relationship, the slow cascade of brick and mortar from a collapsing building or the terrifying claustrophobia of the inward collapse of the human mind, all are evoked […]

Album of the Day:
Witch Mountain – Mobile of Angels
Posted: August 26, 2014 at 3:53 pm
witch-mountain-mobile-of-angels

Lovingly pinched from The Obelisk: Certainly the announcement that vocalist Uta Plotkin will leave Witch Mountain following their Fall US tour with Nik Turner’s Hawkwind places Mobile of Angels, the band’s fourth album overall and third with Plotkin fronting, into a different context. If nothing else, it lets lyrics longing […]

Album of the Day:
Funerary – Starless Aeon
Posted: August 25, 2014 at 4:31 pm
Funerary - Starless Aeon

Lovingly pinched from The Sleeping Shaman: Funerary are still relatively unknown, but that doesn’t mean they aren’t talented. In fact, the underground has always been a place full of exciting talents a lot of people aren’t aware of. Thanks to the Internet, its now easier to discover and explore them. […]

Album of the Day:
Space Witch – S/T
Posted: August 24, 2014 at 2:29 pm
Space Witch

Lovingly pinched from Ave Noctum: With just two tracks making up this album, and the only vocals being the apocalyptic sample of mankind’s destruction that opens the proceedings, Space Witch have really set a challenge for their listeners in this eponymous debut album. I’m not known for backing down readily, […]

Album of the Day:
Lonely Kamel – Shit City
Posted: August 23, 2014 at 7:49 am
lonely kamel - shit-city

Lovingly pinched from The Sleeping Shaman: It’s still unusual to find that one of Europe’s strongest exports of desert rock, especially with a name like Lonely Kamel, hails from the frost-bitten lands of Norway, culturally famed for its black metal output. Yet on the brink of releasing their fourth studio […]
