Roadburn Will Finally Feel True Misery With My Dying Bride

Posted on Tuesday, November 15th, 2016

Honestly, we cannot really express in full what it means to us to finally have such a pillar of doom metal gracing a Roadburn stage. And we know you understand – after all, My Dying Bride mean a hell of a lot to all of us, staff, audience and bands. […]

Come To Grief To Bring World of Hurt To Roadburn 2017

Posted on Tuesday, November 15th, 2016

If you like your sludge extra filthy, Grief are a big part of the reason why. Formed in Boston in 1991, they’d have a dirt-covered hand in shaping the genre of sludge metal on landmark releases like 1993’s Dismal, 1994’s Come to Grief and 1996’s Miserably Ever After, and their […]

Wear Your Wounds: Roadburn 2017 Will Show A Different Side of Jacob Bannon

Posted on Tuesday, November 15th, 2016

In 2016, Converge treated us to two outstanding special shows, playing Jane Doe in full and performing with the Blood Moon ensemble. We were so blown away by the way the band merged with the Roadburn ideals and instinctively realised their connection to the festival, that we had to make […]

Carpenter Brut To Bring 1980s Energy and Horror Movie Fun Alive at Roadburn 2017

Posted on Tuesday, November 15th, 2016

Carpenter Brut take the essence of metal that you like, the parts of techno that you used to like and the atmospheric film music of Carpenter / Argento /Goblin that you love, to create a heady, melodic and intense genre. This French outfit is taking the synthwave to new and […]

Those Poor Bastards Will Haunt Roadburn 2017

Posted on Tuesday, November 15th, 2016

Sounding like two undead holiness preachers, which they actually are (legally certified preachers, we mean, not undead… we think!), crawling out of an abandoned Mississippi graveyard consumed by the foul bog and delivering their message of the endtimes, Those Poor Bastards will hover around the next edition of Roadburn determined […]

Memoriam Will Breathe New Life Into Death Metal at Roadburn 2017

Posted on Tuesday, November 15th, 2016

Bolt Thrower were a monolithic beast; sturdy, substantial, and iconic. To say that the band was influential would be a vast understatement. To have witnessed grown adults clambering over each other to get their hands on merchandise sold only at shows was a spectacle. To have experienced Bolt Thrower live […]

Oxbow Are Coming To Roadburn 2017, Expect Fires

Posted on Tuesday, November 15th, 2016

The imposing figure of Eugene S. Robinson has left a few marks on Roadburn already. He performed solo in 2009 as a part of Neurosis‘ unforgettable Beyond The Pale curation, and on that same year he joined the equally unhinged Black Sun for a devastating guest performance that left more […]

Wolves In The Throne Room Return To Europe at Roadburn 2017

Posted on Tuesday, November 15th, 2016

When you think of party music, epic black metal haunted by bleakness and loss are probably not often high up on the playlist. However, Wolves In the Throne Room will return to Roadburn Festival in 2017, and for us, that’s a real cause to celebrate. Having played the festival in 2008 […]
