Come Join The Black Mass With Italy’s Horror Doomsters Epitaph at Roadburn 2016

Posted on Thursday, October 1st, 2015

Hailed as a lost treasure of the late 80s / early 90s, Italy‘s “purple doomsters” Epitaph released three demos back in the day, only to fade silently into obscurity.

Luckily, the band crawled from its dusty coffin, delivering their chilling, long awaited first full-length — 2014‘s Crawling Out Of The Crypt (High Roller Records). This record sees Epitaph re-working old tracks by way of adding modern touches to their haunting sound – delivering enough crunch and heaviness, without losing sight of their traditional doom approach.

Like fellow horror-doom metallers, the much revered Black Hole (Epitaph‘s Nicola Murari and Mauro Tollini played on the band’s legendary Land Of Mystery album as Nicholas Murray and Luther Gordon respectively) and Abysmal Grief, Epitaph also recall the atmospherics and imagery of the more obscure Giallo cinematic frighteners.

Come join the black mass at Roadburn 2016 when Epitaph will deliver pure doom metal excitement on Thursday, April 14 at the 013 venue in Tilburg, The Netherlands.

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.

The Skull To Keep Vital Doom Legacy Alive At Roadburn 2016 With Two Special Shows

Posted on Thursday, September 10th, 2015

With both Ron Holzner (bass) and vocalist Eric Wagner culled directly from US-doom legends Trouble, it’s not surprising what The Skull holds in store for listeners. The band sets its own course through doomly tradition, paying homage to Trouble‘s much lauded legacy, and building on it too, as well as […]

Album of the day: Khemmis – Absolution

Posted on Monday, September 7th, 2015

Lovingly pinched from Invisible Oranges: There has been a deluge of upstart doom bands over the last decade, some of them great (Kongh, Pallbearer, Orchid) and many others not so much (seriously, there are way too many to name). The oversaturation point for low and slow approaches quickly, so new […]

It is our pleasure to announce that Cruz Del Sur recording artists ARGUS will perform at the 20th edition of Roadburn Festival on Sunday, April 12 at the 013 venue in Tilburg, The Netherlands.

Album of the Day: Blood Farmers – Headless Eyes

Posted on Thursday, July 3rd, 2014

Lovingly pinched from The Obelisk: It has been 19 years since New York City doomers Blood Farmers released their self-titled debut on Hellhound Records, and while that album and their 1991 Permanent Brain Damage demo were reissued via Japan’s Leaf Hound Records in 2008 and 2004, respectively, and trio have […]

Album of the Day: Vallenfyre – Splinters

Posted on Saturday, June 7th, 2014

Lovingly pinched from ThisIsNotAScene: The word ‘supergroup’ is an often misleading term, as it rarely fits the output that much feted members of other bands produce for these side projects. Luckily, Vallenfyre are different, very different indeed. Born out of tragedy and loss, the group of assembled icons from punk […]

Farewell to Jason McCash (April 19th, 1975 – April 5, 2014) by Kim Kelly

Posted on Monday, April 7th, 2014

Death moves in circles. It starts out slow, prowling around the outer borders of your consciousness. When you’re small, your mother has to explain that the dog ran away and won’t be coming back, or that the nice lady from the library won’t be around to help you find new […]

Album of the Day: The Wounded Kings – Consolamentum

Posted on Sunday, February 16th, 2014

Lovingly pinched from The Obelisk: Consolamentum is the fourth full-length from increasingly progressive UK-based doomers The Wounded Kings and also their debut on Candlelight Records. It’s also their most consistent album-to-album lineup in the band since 2010′s The Shadow over Atlantis followed 2008′s Embrace of the Narrow House debut with […]

Album of the Day: Avatarium – Avatarium

Posted on Monday, November 18th, 2013

Lovingly pinched from Metal Underground: There is an evil madness that descends underneath the depths of despair – riding along the electric charges that jump the endless lattice of neural pathways in the mind. The parasitic nature is so perfect that it is undetectable; it is one with the host. […]
