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 a bit of early Genesis – 1980s post-punk, horror movie soundtracks and avant-metal, London’s The Osiris Club follow an occult path based on the writings of forgotten British novelist Margaret Cavendish.

Four years in the making, The Osiris Club‘s debut album, Blazing World, released through Norway ‘s Indie Recordings, has a definite cinematic feel – part other worldly mystery, part eccentric urban wizardry, part playful whimsy and always with twinges of a John Carpenter film score.

With members who have played with such luminaries as Angel Witch, The Osiris Club‘s rare live performances to date have been a riot of masks, robes, film backdrops and theatrics.

The gates will be open for an invasion of Lovecraftian beings at Roadburn 2015 when The Osiris Club will take to the stage, along with Claudio Simonetti’s Goblin playing the soundtrack to Susperia, on Sunday, April 12 at the 013 venue in Tilburg, The Netherlands.

Clearly influenced by the Euro Horror underground film scene of the 70’s (and maybe a bit of the 80s, too), London based Zoltan manage to tread the line between eerie, spine chilling terror and spooky soundtrack-prog perfectly. Their two albums, beautifully recorded in full analogue glory, stand in testament to their musical prowess.

While ghosts of decomposed Knights Templar permeate Zoltan‘s homage to Tombs of the Blind Dead (released through Lee Dorrian‘s Rise Above Records – instand cred!), the band’s eerie, electronic symphonies also recall the John Carpenter type film scores, and without plagiarism. Yes, Zoltan deserve such high praise, as their instrumental dexterity, menacing atmosphere and vampish groove is utterly seamless and captivating.

The 20th edition of Roadburn Festival is going to be a treat for those who love soundtracks (having Claudio Simonetti‘s Goblin and Mugstar on the bill, too) and we’re excited to announce that Zoltan also will bring their horror synths to the 2015 festival on Saturday, April 11 at the 013 venue.
