Roadburn 2020 onthult set Julie Christmas + curatoren Emma Ruth Rundle & James Kent (Perturbator)

Zwarte rook! En meteen veel ook. Roadburn Festival heeft zojuist de eerste namen, de curatoren en commissieopdrachten bekendgemaakt. Roadburn 2020 kent voor het eerst twee curatoren: Emma Ruth Rundle met ‘The Gilded Cage’ (darkfolk-songwriter maakte vorige edities veel indruk) en James Kent, de Fransman achter synthwave-grootheid Perturbator. Ook is de Amerikaanse singer-songwriter Julie Christmas vastgelegd voor een exclusieve set, waarin ze begeleid wordt door onder meer Johannes Persson (Cult of

Bruut Nationaal Product april met Kid Harlequin, Molasses, No Turning Back, Tusky, Deathisfaction en meer…

Soms valt er zoveel muzikaal lekkers te vinden over de hele wereld, zo ook hier bij NMTH, dat het overzicht op Nederlandse bands nogal eens verloren gaat. Genoeg bruut werk op internationaal vlak weliswaar, maar ons kikkerlandje kan er ook wat van. Van thrash metal tot hardcore, doom tot garage: vandaag presenteren we voor de vierde keer het Bruut Nationaal Product, onze maandelijkse rubriek en Spotify-lijst. De tofste tracks uitgebracht in

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

Roadburn interview Bismuth: existing in sound

The primal movements of the earth can be felt when Bismuth plays its second set at the Ladybird Skatepark at Roadburn 2019. Slow, purposeful drone doom, delivered with a mantra-like repetition over a fundamental groundwork of drums by Joe Rawlings. The guitars produce a growling, textured sound that hits you like sonic waves with full force. On guitar is Tanya Byrne, who also plays in Monoliths, Nadir and Dark Mother.

Roadburners: The beautiful people

There is an almost family like feel to the community of Roadburn, gathered online in the Roadburners Facebook group page. This is were the Roadburners share stories, ask questions or complain about long queues. With this sense of community and togetherness in mind we sat down with a Roadbuner to hear a personal persective on this festival we all love so much. It’s late afternoon on the Saturday of the

Roadburn interview Great Grief: Open hearts in the land of gluggaveður

Great Grief plays hardcore, but not with camo shorts and baseball caps. It’s hardcore of the heart and soul, wide open and full of fire. During Roadburn 2019, the band played an added slot on Friday in Ladybird Skatepark. They had already played two shows. It was a tense set, hard and overwhelming for band and audience alike. But those are the shows where the chemistry happens, where everything becomes

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

Changing the game: Emma Ruth Rundle at Roadburn 2019

Roadburn had no shortage of female musicians, generally being awesome. Whether it is the heavy bass work of Tamaki Kunishi (MONO), the multi-layered keyboards of Helen Stanley (Crippled Black Phoenix) or Amalie Bruun (Myrkur) achieving two critically acclaimed black metal albums. Of course, it seems redundant writing about female representation in heavy music today, let alone in regards to a massively diverse festival such as Roadburn. However, it isn’t all
