Abysmal Grief Will Bring The True Italian Dark Sound To Roadburn 2016

Posted on Thursday, October 1st, 2015

Formed in 1996, Abysmal Grief will bring the true Italian dark sound to Roadburn 2016 on Thursday, April 14 at Het Patronaat in Tilburg, The Netherlands.

Whereas many doom bands flirt with the horror and suspense of Dario Argento‘s filmography, Abysmal Grief finds a greater influence from the more obscure Giallo, taking the imagery and atmospherics right to the core of the band’s being. The resulting depth of Abysmal Grief‘s “purple doom” is simply incredible.

When it comes to occult / horror sources – both musical and literary – Abysmal Grief is not only indebted to their Italian forefathers, but they also draw heavily upon classic goth rock. By adding a dark, scary and even theatrical twist, they create something utterly unique. It’s the eerie guitar tone and spooky keyboards that add an unparalleled layer of creepiness, recalling both dark, occult rites and the aforementioned Giallo cinematic frighteners.

Roadburn Festival takes place between 14 – 17 April 2016 at the 013 venue, in Tilburg, The Netherlands Tickets will go on sale on Friday, October 2, 2015.
