Bay Area’s Noothgrush To Rumble The Foundations Of Roadburn Festival 2014

Roadburn 2014 - Noothgrush

Utilizing Iommi guitar tone, huge drums awash in wide open cymbals, and sludge / hardcore vokills with heavy political / social lyrical content, Noothgrush are the crushing essence of modern doom, the Bay Area’s answer to Corrupted and early Boris.

They are masters of dynamics, not afraid to get quiet and minimal to create space and contrast for the enormous riffing that follows. Roadburn is extremely happy to to welcome them to the 2014 festival where they will be rumbling the foundations of the 013 venue on Saturday, April 12th in Tilburg, The Netherlands.

Noothgrush stretch back almost 20 years, but took a 10 year hiatus and reformed in 2011. They have a guitar sound that is firmly rooted in classic doom, but the drumming and vocals put them stylistically in the modern doom camp. Contemporaries of Eyehategod, Grief and Cavity, Noothgrush did their fair share to drive the sound of U.S. doom lower and slower.

Their vengeful, harrowing doom also incorporates some psychedelic elements as well — evidenced by them covering tracks from Pink Floyd‘s Ummagumma — along with lots of space to give the vocals and guitar maximum impact.

Roadburn Festival 2014 will run for four days from ThursdayApril 10th to SundayApril 13th 2014 at the 013 venue inTilburgThe Netherlands.
