Mugstar To Put Glistening and Outerworldly Sonic Glory on Display at Roadburn 2015

Posted: September 10, 2014 at 8:29 am

Heavily influenced by psychedelia, Krautrock and even Post Rock, Liverpool UK’s beloved Mugstar are in the vanguard of modern psych rock, just in case you were unfamiliar with them. Infusing their brooding moodiness, minimal psych rock mesmerism and propulsive, hypnokraut grooves with seriously psychedelic ferocity has propelled Mugstar to stand […]

Roadburn 2015 - Undersmile

Sirens Of Sludge Undersmile To Bring Doom And Despair To Roadburn 2015

Posted: September 10, 2014 at 8:24 am

Undersmile will bring their hypnotic, soul crushing blend of doom and despair to the 20th edition of Roadburn Festival on Saturday, April 11, 2015 at the 013 venue in Tilburg, The Netherlands. Featuring the unique dual vocal interplay of singer-guitarists Hel Sterne and Taz Corona-Brown, Undersmile combine tortuously slow tempos, […]

Roadburn 2015 - Coma Wall

Prepare For Despair As Coma Wall Bring Acoustic Death Folk To Roadburn Festival 2015

Posted: September 10, 2014 at 8:20 am

Coma Wall, the acoustic alter-ego of Undersmile, will bring rustic downbeat blues and folk to the 20th edition of Roadburn Festival on Saturday, April 11, 2015 at the 013 venue in Tilburg, The Netherlands. The very notion of unplugging a band as monstrously heavy and doomladen as Undersmile seemed almost […]

Roadburn 2015 - Pyramidal

Pyramidal and Domo To Represent Spanish Heavy Psych at Roadburn Festival 2015

Posted: September 10, 2014 at 8:15 am

Spanish heavy psych has long been overdue at Roadburn, so we’re thrilled to announce that Pyramidal and Domo, both hailing from Alicante, will bring their stoner inspired heavy Space Rock with progressive and Krautrock leanings to the 20th edition of Roadburn Festival, set for April 9 -12 at the 013 […]

Posted: September 4, 2014 at 2:10 pm

We’re ecstatic to announce that legendary kosmische Giallo synth duo Zombi will be playing an exclusive set at Roadburn 2015, appearing for the first time in Europe since a handful of festival appearances back in 2011. Since first hitting the general consciousness with their Relapse 2004 debut album Cosmos, following […]

Roadburn 2015 - Profetus

Finland’s Profetus To Evoke A Weighty Procession at Roadburn Festival 2015

Posted: September 4, 2014 at 2:08 pm

At long last, Profetus will be conjuring their classic Finnish funeral doom, worthy of comparision to Thergothon, Skepticism and Tyranny (with whom Profetus share members), when they play the 20th edition of Roadburn Festival on Friday, April 10th at Het Patronaat in Tilburg, The Netherlands. In collaboration with Finland’s Blow […]

Roadburn 2015 - Der Weg Einer Freiheit

Der Weg Eineir Freiheit To Bring Blackend Grandeur To Roadburn Festival 2015

Posted: September 4, 2014 at 2:05 pm

Germany’s Der Weg Einer Freiheit offers a master class in dark, furious and epic black metal as they effortlessly mix blackened grandeur with post-rock sensibilities and classically influenced melodies to create their signature sound. Der Weg Einer Freiheit‘s latest album, Unstille, released back in 2012, is an emotionally poignant and […]

Roadburn 2015 - Salems Pot

Sweeden’s Salem’s Pot Bring Their Mondo Trasho Psychotropic Doom To Roadburn 2015

Posted: September 4, 2014 at 2:00 pm

Firmly rooted in the red-eyed rituals of the heady ‘60s and dead ‘70s, and shabby, feverish catacomb 8mm smut by the likes of Jess Franco, Sweeden’s Salem’s Pot are clearly on the rise, channeling ultra-fuzzed acid-blues into psychotropic lo-fi doom. These guys aren’t just some bogus, bong-worshipping, basement dwellers. Salem’s […]

Roadburn2015 - Oozing Wound

Chicago Blast-inferno Thrash Monsters Oozing Wound To Slay Roadburn Festival 2015

Posted: September 4, 2014 at 1:57 pm

Buckle up! Are you ready for some of the filthiest, snottiest, relentless and downright loud crossover thrash this side of early 80s Metallica, Slayer and Suicidal Tendencies? Then look no further, as Chi-town’s Oozing Wound are here to supercharge the 20th edition of Roadburn Festival on Saturday, April 11, 2015 […]

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 […]
