Hear It Here: Roadburn Festival 2014 Audio Streams Online; Graves at Sea, Inter Arma and The Old Wind Among Others

Posted on Thursday, December 18th, 2014

How to summarize the 2014 Roadburn Festival? The name of one of the many fantastic bands that performed comes to mind: Promise and The Monster. The festival promised to be something special, and like always there were some monster clashes to deal with!

Many of us made a promise to check out various overlapping bands, only to find ourselves riveted by a monstrously good set. Which is why this next part of every year’s Roadburn extravaganza is almost as highly anticipated and appreciated as the event itself: that’s right, it’s time to share the 2014 audio streams!

Once again, Marcel van de Vondervoort (Torture Garden Studios / Spacejam) and his team expertly captured the sounds on stage. While you were worming your way through a Green Room doorway jam, they were recording the jams inside. Now it’s time to kick back and relax and just listen. The VPRO’s 3voor12, which is the best cultural media network in the Netherlands, is making it possible to share these streams with you.

This is the fifth batch, and there is plenty more to come. To paraphrase the perennially inspired and inspiring Lenny Kaye: “Harsh clash, good stash!”

Album of the Day: Snailking – Storm

Posted on Monday, September 29th, 2014

Lovingly pinched from Metal Injection: Watching a time lapse videos of say, a building being constructed or something going through the various stages of decomposition, is plenty interesting. The video might be a little bit on the long side, but you know everything you’re watching is slowly working toward some […]
