Brooklyn-Based, Blackened-Sludge Metallers Mortals Bring Their Bestial and Singular Blend of Metal to Roadburn 2015

Posted on Wednesday, September 17th, 2014

Effortlessly shifting from stoner rock to black metal in a flash, Mortals‘ infectiously colossal sound lies in their ability to craft a commonality throughout a blur of dark and heavy genres.

Their critically acclaimed debut record, Cursed to See the Future, released this past July through Relapse Records melds “disparate strands of heavy metal into highly memorable — and viscerally potent — songs. Woven into their dark tapestries you will find strands of sludge, doom, black metal, and thrash. The result is music that’s massively heavy, massively headbangable, and almost always decimating to the core” according to No Clean Singing.

Mortals on joining the Roadburn 2015 lineup: “Roadburn is practically legend for being the very. best. metal. festival. and the most raging heavy metal party in the world, so needless to say we’ve wanted to play it for a long time. We look forward to slaying Tilburg in April.”

Mortals will destroy Stage One of the 013 venue in Tilburg, The Netherlands on April 9. You have been warned.

Roadburn Festival 2015 will run for four days from Thursday, April 9 to Sunday, April 12 at the 013 venue in Tilburg, The Netherlands.

Album of the Day: Black Anvil – Hail Death

Posted on Wednesday, July 30th, 2014

Lovingly pinched from Sea of Tranquility: There’s been a bit of positive press lately (promotional stuff, mostly) about Black Anvil‘s cover of Kiss‘s ‘Under the Rose.’ The praise is well deserved: not only is the cover superb, it gives the classic song a slightly harder edge. It’s worth a listen. […]

Posted on Thursday, June 26th, 2014

Lovingly pinched from Sea of Tranquility: This sophomore release from New York City’s Serpentine Path offers further proof that these guys are absolute masters of doom.

Album of the Day: Tombs – Savage Gold

Posted on Sunday, June 8th, 2014

Lovingly pinched from MetalSucks: Something about Tombs‘ icy style has previously made it challenging for me to get into, but I think I’m done keeping this band at arm’s length. Admittedly I was quite impressed when I caught the group for the first time way back when, but it was […]

Album of the Day: Nothing – Guilty Of Everything

Posted on Wednesday, February 19th, 2014

Lovingly pinched from The Sleeping Shaman: Holy hell this is one refreshing album. It’s been a long time since I’ve enjoyed a full album in the way I’m enjoying this. I’m still trying to pinpoint some genres to pigeon hole this into but there’s so many that it’s fucking difficult […]

Roadburn is pleased to present a brand new track from Philadelphia’s Nothing. Bent Nail is taken from Nothing‘s forthcoming debut album, Guilty of Everything.

Album of the Day: Culted – Oblique to All Paths

Posted on Saturday, January 18th, 2014

Lovingly pinched from Meat Mead Metal: Smoke rising from chimneys are fires always makes me think of doom. I’m not sure why. Maybe it’s the slow burning, or perhaps it’s the billowing smoke that can serve to suffocate and destroy, but it’s an image that always makes me think of […]
