The Great Old Ones To Bring Lovecraft-Inspired French Black Metal To Roadburn Festival 2014

Roadburn 2014 - The Great Old Ones

Taking H.P. Lovecraft’s Cthulhu Mythos as their template, France’s The Great Old Ones draw stylistically from contemporary black metal folded around post-metal structures suffused with dark ambient atmosphere on their stunning debut album, Al Azif.

Formed in 2011, The Great Old Ones aren’t your typical French black metal band that operates in the same unorthodox, dissonant area as Blut aus Nord or Deathspell Omega.  No, the band is definitely carving a niche of their own as they weave ethereal harmonies with unconventional song progressions, breaking up their chaotic, blackened majesty with atmospheric interludes and slower doom-laden anthems.

The Great Old Ones will send you over the edge at Roadburn Festival 2014 on Thursday, April 10th at the 013 venue in Tilburg, The Netherlands.

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