Avant-garde rock maestros Virus added to Roadburn 2012 line-up; Hexvessel and Dark Buddha Rising confirmed, too!
Avant-garde rock maestros Virus, led by former Ved Buens Ende mastermind Carl-Michael Eide (a.k.a Czral), are one of the finest, most exquisite musical exports Norway has to offer at this very moment. Its very hard to describe the musical universe of Virus… think a vast spectrum of genres, ranging from psychedelic to krautrock and from rock via jazz to avant-metal, but all weird and trippy in an inexplicably elegant way… and then at the same time it’s really catchy, too!

Oakland’s Saviours have just released their new album Death’s Procession (Kemado Records) and we jumped at the chance to be among the first to premiere the video for the track Crete’n. It’s an ode to the biker exploitation movies of the Sixties and captures the band’s glorious proto metal vibe.
Ever wondered what would happen if you took your favorite Thin Lizzy, Iron Maiden and Motorhead albums, threw ‘em into the bay, dried ‘em over a bonfire and played ‘em backwards? Listen to Saviours and find out! (more…)
We’re excited to announce that The Machine will be part of this years Afterburner event, set for Sunday, April 17 at the 013 venue in Tilburg, Holland.
Due to some changes in the production schedule for this years Afterburner, we had the opportunity to add one more band to the line-up. The Machine is a perfect fit, as the overall vibe of Afterburner leans towards classic psychedelic rock and stonerrock, just like the old school Roadburn Festivals! (more…)

We are sorry to announce that Yob has canceled their European tour for spring 2011. This has the very regrettable result of meaning the band will not appear at this years Roadburn festival. We can really sympathize that you all were looking forward to see the band playing their seminal album, The Unreal Never Lived. We also feel bad about this! We were looking forward to their show too, as we’re fans, just like you. (more…)
We’re excited to report that Sabbath Assembly will be part of the 2011 Roadburn Festival lineup, set for Friday, April 15th at the Midi Theatre, Tilburg, Holland.
Sabbath Assembly is a modern response to the musical activities of a cult known as The Process Church of the Final Judgment. (more…)
We’re very pleased to report that Today is the Day will be part of the 2011 Roadburn Festival lineup, set for Thursday, April 14th at the 013 venue in Tilburg, Holland.
Some bands like to present the facade that they are evil because it makes them seem more exciting, more counterculture, more metal. Today is the Day mastermind Steve Austin has no such need. Despite
traversing a wide musical territory (much of it not easily describable as metal) over the course of 19 years and 8 full length albums, Today is the Day stands as one of the most truly evil, misanthropic and
disturbing bands of our time. (more…)
As you all may have noticed, the line-up for Roadburn Festival 2011 has been shaping up nicely. In addition to the bands previously announced, we are very happy to report that Black Math Horseman will be part of the 2011 festival lineup. Originally scheduled to perform at this years Roadburn Festival in April 2010, Black Math Horseman ended up stuck in LA due to logistic complications arising from the volcanic eruption in Iceland. Black Math Horseman is now scheduled to play on Saturday, April 16 at the 013 venue, Tilburg, Holland.
LA’s Black Math Horseman live somewhere between the psychedelic world of 70′s stoner and contemporary shoegazers which they adorn with touches of goth and post rock to create their mind altering sound. (more…)
Roadburn is thrilled to report that doom supergroup Shrinebuilder will be part of the 2011 Roadburn Festival lineup. Originally scheduled to perform at this years Roadburn Festival in April 2010, Shrinebuilder ended up stuck in New York due to logistic complications arising from the volcanic eruption in Iceland. Shrinebuilder is now scheduled to play on Saturday, April 16 at the 013 venue, Tilburg, Holland.
With Scott Kelly (Neurosis) and Scott “Wino” Weinrich (Saint Vitus, The Obsessed, The Hidden Hand and Wino) on guitar, Al Cisneros (OM, Sleep) on bass and Dale Crover (Melvins) on drums, Shrinebuilder’s self-titled debut full-length (released on Neurot Recordings) is perhaps the most anticipated “Roadburn Festival album” of the year. Over the past year we have watched the Shrinebuilder buzz rise to fever pitch.
We are truly looking forward to see Kelly, Wino, Cisneros and Crover meld their unique, different styles. When these four musicians get together, catchy canyon-size riffs lead to psychedelic guitar solos; subdued vocals add a mellow touch; and the meandering, groove-laden ambience ultimately creates crushing doom riffage. The sum of the parts is only strengthened by the natural vibe between these musical heavyweights – all of whom embody the true spirit of the Roadburn Festival. (more…)
It was posted via the band’s Facebook page, Stone Axe will be playing Roadburn, Tilburg, Holland – April 16th 2011.
Roadburn Festival is very pleased to report that Cough will be playing the Thursday Roadburn date, Thursday, April 14th, 2011.
Richmond’s Cough delivers a dirge-laden take on excessively drugged out doom (think Electric Wizard as the central point of reference). Both their albums, Sigillum Luciferi and Relapse Records debut, Ritual Abuse, (more…)
