Zweterig glibberen en glijden met D.R.I. in uitverkocht dB’s

Suicidal Tendencies, S.O.D., M.O.D., Excel… Allemaal iconische namen in het crossover genre. Maar tot diezelfde reeks behoren zonder meer die Californische dirty rotten imbeciles van D.R.I.. Met een handvol invloedrijke cultklassiekers als 4 Of A Kind, Thrash Zone, Dirty Rotten LP en Crossover, staan ze garant voor een heerlijke pot thrash metal en hardcore punk. Vandaag brengt het ze dan ook voor de tweede keer naar dB’s in Utrecht. En

Desertfest gaat op de zware Belgische toer

Nu hebben wij de voorbije jaren van tal van Belgische geneugten mogen snoepen, ook dankzij de firma RuffStuff die drie Roadburn-jaren in de Cul de Sac optuigde, en zeker ook dankzij Eurosonic, Incubate, Le Guess Who? en tal van andere festivals. Ook reisden we al enige malen af naar Graspop en Sjock Festival en al driemaal naar Antwerpen voor Desertfest. In de Trix zagen we Belgen als Steak Number Eight,

1e namen Soulcrusher 2019 met Daughters, Mizmor en Telepathy

Voor je het weet is de zomer hier (…) en weer voorbij en mogen we in het najaar helegaar los op een pak aan heavy festivals. Zo’n beetje ons favoriete dagfestival is Soulcrusher in Doornroosje Nijmegen. Daar gingen we al drie edities hard op acts van Yob, Deafheaven, Inter Arma, Mayhem en Dodecahedron tot Ufomammut, Monolord, Conan, Oathbreaker en Voivod. Van hevig stonend en doomend tot intens blackened spul dus.

A Farewell to an Icon: Patronaat’s final hour

Since it’s first inclusion as a venue in various festivals in Tilburg, het Patronaat has become a loved venue for all. Not just for Roadburn, but also for Incubate, Netherlands Deathfest and many other events the venue played a vital part. Now, it’s doors close for live concerts for good and Imperial Triumphant was the band to play the final notes in the upstairs venue with the pretty carpeted balcony

The gruesome and unfair… Roadburn 2019 Highlights!

Accepting the inevitable and gruesome, the saying goodbye to a festival we love with all our hearts – for about 360 days – and to make matters worse, to rub it in and make the pain even more tangible: we’ve asked our staff to give us their Roadburn 2019 Highlights. And to confine those picks to just 5… sheer torture, we know. But here goes.  Also; the video crew let

Record store day at Roadburn: is vinyl a fad after all?

Today is a good day for music. While we’re enjoying the third day of Roadburn it’s also Record Store Day. We were at a packed Sounds Tilburg where the announced ‘DJ-set’ by Dutch Record Store Day ambassadors De Staat turns out to be a live set after all. Fool me once. We park at the door from where we see a lot of folks carrying out RSD-totes filled with what,

Roadburn, a summary in stills

It’s cold as hell outside during the first days of one of the most heart warming festivals out there: Roadburn. This year’s edition sure took all of us by surprise with three commisioned acts, curated shows and artists in residence. The diversity was enormous, even compared to previous editions. We tried to capture it all which is, of course, impossible. Nevertheless below are some our finest pictures we took during this great

Strange folk and the strangeness of Roadburn folk

Roadburn is not exclusively about desert rock and stoner music anymore. It’s still there, but really, how far has the festival come? On Thursday, there’s something more primal happening. Folk music, in its broadest sense, is taking center stage at Roadburn, as we see performances of Myrkur, Heilung, and Hexvessel on the main stage.  Editor: Guido Segers Let’s face it, many of us are looking for an escape. We are

Roadburn: Molasses offers catharsis and release

It’s been five years since The Devil’s Blood´ Selim Lemouchi left this world behind. Five years since his band members played his songs, that had such burning force behind them, such otherworldliness and conviction. Certainly, there have been other bands and the spark of his creativity has been carried on but not until today has it fully become part of the texture that is heavy music as Molasses takes the

Descending: The magical early hours at planet Roadburn

Something strange happens in Tilburg on Thursday afternoon as the Veemarktstraat slowly turns into Weirdo Canyon. No one can tell you exactly where this normally quiet street turns into Roadburn territory, but we all know when it has happened. You get off the train, leave your hotel – or just your front door – and suddenly you’ve landed: Planet Roadburn. Editor: Guido Segers We carefully move out, like animals in
