Roadburn 2016 Hardrock Hideout: Jucifer, Wednesday, April 13, Cul de Sac (NL)

Posted on Thursday, February 18th, 2016

For those who can’t wait for Roadburn to begin, once again we kick off the festivities and invite you all to join us for an evening of practising the fine art of headbanging while holding a beer on Wednesday, April 13.

That’s right, our traditional Hardrock Hideout will once again jump the Roadburn gun on the evening prior to the start of the actual festival, as everyone already in town congregates to celebrate the finer points in life – Roadburn itself, good company, fine brews and the compelling power of the riff.

And oh boy, will there be riffs. While in previous editions we have focused more on an 80s thrash vibe, this year we went all out for a monstrous upgrade. Fear not, because this particular rip-fest will rip even more than the old-school ones used to, and the main instrument of ripping will be none other than Jucifer themselves.

That’s right, four years after their last appearance at the festival, our favourite pair of highly-amplified nomads will park at the Cul de Sac for the evening and raise all the kinds of hell that only they know how. Employing their less-is-more guitar / drums attack they’ll rip through their harsh, thrashy, sludgy, doomy, whatever-you-want-to-call-it-y massive tunes. It’ll be a blast and it’ll fire us all up for the proper start of the festival the next day, so be there to raise a pint with us.

Do yourself a favour, and worship THEE RIFF alongside Jucifer at Roadburn’s Hardrock Hideout on Wednesday, April 13 at Cul de Sac. Admission is FREE!

Hemelbestormer To Twist Time And Space At Roadburn 2016

Posted on Thursday, February 18th, 2016

Fortunately we spell-check these things, because writing this announcement at the same time we listen to Hemelbestormer‘s debut album Aether is very risky – these four long and winding instrumental behemoths make our minds wander all over the place – and time! – and we probably hit all the wrong […]

Buried At Sea To Drag You Into An Abyss At Roadburn 2016 From the beginning surge of feedback through the last filth-caked rumble, Buried at Sea’s sound is a monument to the notion of tone as weight. Abrasive in the extreme and matched in aural largesse only by the sway […]
