Fange To Suffocate Roadburn 2017 With Their Dirty Amplifier Worship

Posted on Tuesday, November 15th, 2016

Around since 2013, France’s own Fange, featuring members of Huata and Calvaiire, are borrowing the very best of Swedeath D-Beat and amplifier worship before filtering them through some seriously blackened sludge. The band’s debut album, Purge, has plenty of filth, dirt, crust and doom on offer – this is sludge at it’s most massive, and abrasive, too!

Oozing harshness, and being heavy as fuck, Fange manage to distinguish themselves in an oversaturated genre by writing actual songs, infused with their own abject clang and crunch, instead of only tuning low, and dabbling in generic chugging.

Together with the likes of Cult of Occult, Celeste, Hangman’s Chair, and Regarde Les Hommes Tomber, Fange are in the vanguard of France‘s burgeoning underground scene, and we can’t wait for the band to lay waste to Roadburn 2017 on Friday, April 21 at the 013 venue in Tilburg, The Netherlands.

Roadburn Festival 2017 will take place April 20-23 at the 013 venue, Tilburg, The Netherlands. Tickets are now on sale!

Album of the Day: Fistula – Vermin Prolificus

Posted on Friday, February 13th, 2015

Lovingly pinched from Metal Bandcamp: Few bands can make you feel like you’re wallowing in a vat of pig shit and be loving every minute of it the way Fistula can. Vermin Prolificus is their latest foray into a world of absolute filth and drug use. Vermin is as sludgy as […]

Album of the Day: Coltsblood – Into The Unfathomable Abyss

Posted on Thursday, March 6th, 2014

Lovingly pinched from Echoes And Dust: With song titles like ‘Grievous Molestation’, ‘Abyss Of Aching Insanity’ and ‘Valhalla Awaits’ you assume correctly that you’re in for a brutal and heavy ride with Coltsblood‘s debut full-length release entitled Into The Unfathomable Abyss. Buckle up brother, this album is an hour long smash […]

Album of the Day: Eibon – II

Posted on Saturday, July 27th, 2013

Lovingly pinched from Ave Noctum: Eibon’s last album Entering Darkness really lived up to its name. The French band delivered a stark, sludgy, doom-etched morass of war hewn grimness that was monochromatic right down to its chilling artwork. The first thing I noticed about the follow up was just how […]

Album of the Day: Jucifer – The Russian Album

Posted on Wednesday, July 24th, 2013

Lovingly pinched from Last Rites: “I am Russian. I am soldier. I am ready.” This, the final line of ‘First Narration’, which opens the new album from Athens road warriors Jucifer, sets the stage for what is on the way: sonic warfare. Some eardrums won’t survive. Those that do simply […]

Album of the day: Regarde Les Hommes Tomber – Regarde Les Hommes Tomber

Posted on Monday, June 17th, 2013

Lovingly pinched from Infernal Masquerade Webzine: Rounding up our promo package from LADLO productions, today we have another exciting new outfit from France under the moniker Regarde Les Hommes Tomber. With their self-titled debut release, this band manages to blend elements of Neurosis and Amenra and create a very tight […]

Album of the day: Cult Of Occult – S/T

Posted on Saturday, August 18th, 2012

Lovingly pinched from The Sleeping Shaman: Writing a title-track to depict a record’s chosen concept, emotion, atmosphere or ideology can often be no simple task. Writing a band-title-track, however, must be an even more well-considered process in order to come up with that perfectly self-defining sound that will inevitably become […]

Album of the day: Eagle Twin – The Feather Tipped The Serpent’s Scale

Posted on Wednesday, August 8th, 2012

Lovingly pinched from Metal Review: Something I find very appealing about Utah’s Eagle Twin is the fact that there’s not another band currently kicking around that sounds quite like them. I’ve seen them lumped alongside a handful of other droning sludgers, which I suppose is fair, but this duo truly […]

Album of the day: Samothrace – Reverence to Stone

Posted on Friday, July 20th, 2012

Lovingly pinched from The staying power of Samothrace’s 2008 album Life’s Trade should not be understated. Melodic sludge at its bare minimum best, Life’s Trade was everything the style is and isn’t at the same time, meaning, that instead of being driven down in an avalanche of messy distortion, […]

Album of the day: Coffinworm – Great Bringer Of Night (LP)

Posted on Sunday, July 8th, 2012

Praise for Coffinworm‘‘s Great Bringer Of Night from San Francisco’s aQuarius Records: Great Bringer Of Night was the 2009 demo from these Midwestern blackened doomlords, and has now been remastered by James Plotkin, had a couple extra tracks tacked on (alternate versions of tracks from their Profound Lore release), and […]
