Lucifer To Touch The Darkest Recesses of Our Souls at Ivar Bjørnson’s and Einar “Kvitrafn” Selvik’s Houses of the Holistic at Roadburn 2015

Posted on Tuesday, February 3rd, 2015

We’re excited to announce the timely and welcome return of Johanna Sadonis, as she brings her newest manifestation, Lucifer, to Houses of the Holistic. She will touch the darkest recesses of our souls at Ivar Bjørnson‘s and Einar “Kvitrafn” Selvik‘s curated Roadburn event on Friday, April 10 at the 013 venue in Tilburg, The Netherlands

 “Everything goes in ever-increasing circles; music is not an exclusion”, says Ivar Bjørnson. “Lucifer deals with a sound that is close to the origins of our genre(s), drawing from the early days of Heavy Metal, Hard Rock and pre-doom. They’re a new and very promising act that has managed to add their own twist to a well-known formula. There’s exploration and progression, but a thriving scene also needs to preserve its roots and keep a living record of its past (look where the world is at after it forgot its roots!). The past is alive!”

In the words of Dom Lawson of Metal Hammer: “Although still firmly rooted in the fertile soil first cultivated by Black Sabbath, Deep Purple, Led Zeppelin and Blue Oyster Cult, Lucifer exist in a proudly liberated and limitless sonic realm, where the heaviest blues rock is a mere starting point for the band’s skyward creative trajectory. Lucifer’s instinctive take on the very soul of early heavy metal is the electrified essence of rock’n’roll at its nascent purest. This is Magic Rock – heavy, heartfelt and holistic.”

Luficer will release their debut 7”, Anubis, via Rise Above Records on February 23rd.

Roadburn Festival 2015 will run for four days from Thursday, April 9 to Sunday, April 12 at the 013 venue, Het Patronaat and Cul de Sac in Tilburg, The Netherlands. Get your tickets HERE.

Chocks Away With Admiral Sir Cloudesely Shovell at Roadburn 2015!

Posted on Thursday, January 29th, 2015

‘Airy ‘erberts Admiral Sir Cloudesly Shovell wowed ethusiasts of greasy balls-out ’70s rock with their very first sold-out 7″ for Rise Above back in 2011, followed by the one-two punch of a brace of albums – 2012‘s Don’t Hear It… Fear It! and last year’s not-so-difficult second album Check ‘Em Before […]

Album of the Day: Death Penalty – S/T

Posted on Wednesday, September 24th, 2014

Lovingly pinched from The Sleeping Shaman: He’s blessed us with the classics – Forest Of Equilibrium, The Ethereal Mirror, The Carnival Bizarre, Endtyme – the list goes on; as the main songwriter and penultimate “riff-finder general” for legendary doom outfit Cathedral, the name Gaz Jennings has been synonymous with skull […]

The Osiris Club & Zoltan To Bring Their Cinematic Feel To Roadburn Festival 2015

Posted on Wednesday, September 17th, 2014

We’re thrilled to annouce that The Osiris Club & Zoltan will bring their cinematic feel to the 20th edtion of Roadburn Festival, set for April 9 – 12 at the 013 venue in Tilburg, The Netherlands. Taking the best parts of 1970s progressive rock – just think King Crimson and […]

Album of the Day: Rog & Pip – Our Revolution

Posted on Friday, June 6th, 2014

Lovingly pinched from The Obelisk: Like a lot of “lost” groups the origins of Rog & Pip are winding and complicated. The duo of Roger Lomas and Philip “Pip” Whitcher trace their origins back to mid-’60s Coventry outfit The Sorrows, which found success not in the UK, but in Italy, […]

Album of the Day: Admiral Sir Cloudesley Shovell – Check ‘Em Before You Wreck ‘Em

Posted on Saturday, May 24th, 2014

Lovingly pinched from The Sleeping Shaman: The old adage “never judge a book by it’s cover” could just as easily apply to albums, and yet the artwork for Check ‘Em Before You Wreck ‘Em, Admiral Sir Cloudesley Shovell’s second full length effort, seems to perfectly belie its musical content. The […]

Album of the Day: Horisont – Time Warriors

Posted on Wednesday, November 20th, 2013

Lovingly pinched from The Sleeping Shaman: Horisont are yet another shining example of just how good the modern music scene is in Sweden. Presumably Richie Blackmore and KK Downing have being taking over music classes with a countless amount of great bands emerging from the same places that gave us […]

Album of the Day: Age Of Taurus – Desperate Souls Of Tortured Times

Posted on Thursday, July 25th, 2013

Lovingly pinched from The Sleeping Shaman: The words “hotly anticipated” do not even come close to summing up how I have been salivating to hear this album. I remember many moons ago, I ran into the right honourable Reverend Riddell outside a gig (Grand Magus and Electric Wizard, I think?) […]

Album of the day: Hidden Masters – Of This And Other Worlds

Posted on Wednesday, June 26th, 2013

Lovingly pinched from Brandish: In case it has escaped your attention there is a bit of psych revival going on at the moment with thousands of bands from all across their world aping their 60s heroes in creating trippy, yet hook-filled soundscapes. A lot of those bands take the easy […]

Album of the day: Church of Misery – Thy Kingdom Scum

Posted on Friday, June 14th, 2013

Lovingly pinched from The Obelisk: In some ways, it makes sense to think of the new Church of Misery album, Thy Kingdom Scum (Rise Above / Metal Blade), as a sequel to Houses of the Unholy. Like that 2009 full-length, the title is a pun with a religious theme also […]
