Album Premiere: Crippled Black Phoenix – Bronze

Posted on Tuesday, October 25th, 2016

Ahead of their Roadburn 2017 performance on Thursday, April 20, we’re thrilled to bring you a premiere this afternoon for Crippled Black Phoenix. The much lauded band is going to release their upcoming album, Bronze, via Season of Mist on November 4, and we have the full album premiere.

A creative high point in a career full of them, CBP’s new album Bronze demonstrates how their state of perpetual evolution continues to inspire music that defies description while purposefully sinking its talons into your emotional core. At times unremittingly dark and yet subtly imbued with glimmers of hope, Justin Greaves’ latest batch of ingenious anthems are aching to be performed live at Roadburn in 2017: Crippled Black Phoenix exist for people who feel music in the very depths of their souls, and there could be no more fitting stage for the English crew to prowl as they reach out to yet more willing converts.

Roadburn Festival 2017 will take place April 20-23 at the 013 venue, Tilburg, The Netherlands. Tickets are now on sale!

Posted on Thursday, October 20th, 2016

We are truly spoiled by Ulver at Roadburn, let’s face it. Back in 2012, they delighted us with the first and only rendition of the songs on Childhood’s End, their album of obscure 60s psychedelia covers. It was a unique and unrepeatable treat that still resonates deeply within our collective […]

You read that right. We didn’t make up that title, that’s exactly what’s going to happen. We asked the dreaded triple-headed entity of Mysticum to give us a few words about their appearance at Roadburn 2017 and that’s exactly what they told us, not less, not more. “We shall invade […]

If this was boxing, it could well be a title fight, the prize being not a belt, but the title of most feverishly creative individual in experimental music.

Wretch To Play First Ever European Show at Roadburn 2017

Posted on Tuesday, October 18th, 2016

For Karl Simon – formerly of the much revered doom-metal stalwarts, The Gates of Slumber – Wretch‘s heartfelt traditional metal heraldry is much more than mere Sabbath worship; it’s a gut wrenching form of art, reflecting Simon’s heart and soul, and also functions as catharsis in time of need, especially […]

Deafheaven To Become Part of The Roadburn Family At Our 2017 Festival

Posted on Tuesday, October 18th, 2016

When Deafheaven released their debut album Roads to Judah back in 2011 they probably were not expecting to be at the center of many heated debates and discussion a couple of years later. Critically acclaimed and widely discussed by black metal purists, shoegaze fanatics and post-rock devotees, the Californian 5-piece […]
