Roadburn Festival 2016 – Afterburner Review By Guido Segers

27th April 2016 at 6:11 pm

Roadburn 2016 - Afterburner - Day #4

It’s been a blast, this Roadburn, but it always hurts to see people go home and the Het Patronaat packing up. You want to somehow tell the workers that there’s a bit more of the festival left and maybe they can just leave the…

Graves At Sea ‘The Curse That Is’ CD/LP/DD 2016

27th April 2016 at 6:04 pm

Graves At Sea

With its eclectic, eco-friendly vibe, Portland, OR’s earth-centered urbania meets hipster-hippie chic has made it ripe for satirical comedo-drama (check Portlandia), but its cooler, more sinister underbelly hides some of the best and most vicious secrets. Note the front of any vintage Sunn amplifier…

Roadburn Festival 2016 – Day 3 Review By Guido Segers

26th April 2016 at 6:14 pm

Roadburn 2016 - Day #3

On the third day of Roadburn, the weary feeling of the day before still lingers on many sleepy faces when the festival opens up. It’s a 24/7 thing to be at Roadburn and why would you sleep if you can have fun? With Converge,…

Beastmaker ‘Lusus Naturae’ CD/LP/DD 2016

26th April 2016 at 6:05 pm

Beastmaker

The Sabbath tree of life extends its familiar branches yet again, and somehow our undying love for the arguable originators of doom allows our ears to perk at the slight chance that a new band might just crack the code without cloning the blueprint…

Horse Latitudes ‘Primal Gnosis’ CD/LP/DD 2016

26th April 2016 at 5:59 pm

Horse Latitudes

The band may have taken their name from a Doors song as there are little psychedelic elements to the nerve wrecking drone doom Horse Latitudes produces and after three years of silence, the group returns with a new record titled Primal Gnosis. Come join…

Boris With Merzbow ‘Gensho’ CD/LP/DD 2016

25th April 2016 at 5:39 pm

Boris With Merzbow

Gensho is a collaboration album, or rather it is two separate albums which the auditor is advised “are intended to be played at the same time at varying volumes so that the listener can experience their own “gensho/phenomenon” every time”. 50% of Gensho (one…

24th April 2016 at 2:37 pm

Roadburn 2016 - Day #1

So welcome back to the crazy train it is, impossible schedules, filled up venues and so much more. It sounds like misery, but don’t we all love the madness that is Roadburn. It’s a bit of a hassle, these Thursday afternoons, but all seems…

Nadja ‘Sv’ CD/DD 2016

24th April 2016 at 2:23 pm

Nadja

Reviewing a record by Nadja is not an easy task. If you just look at their back catalogue its frightening how much the duo releases and pretty much all of it is good. So what to do about Sv then? The latest of their…
