It seems like only Monday I was posting a kickass Roadburn update. Oh wait, that was only Monday. Well, here’s the next batch: More classic doom and in the true tradition of the fest, a couple European bands I don’t know but will no doubt soon be drooling over and touting as the future of Heavy. So it goes.
We’re thrilled to announce that legendary US doomsters Internal Void will be making a rare European appearance at Roadburn Festival Afterburner on Sunday, April 15 at the 013 venue in Tilburg, Holland.
“We are thrilled to be a part of Roadburn, says the band, “Internal Void can finally achieve our goal of playing overseas, after numerous attempts that sadly fell through this is the best way we can imagine making it happen.”
“Internal Void will be bringing it to Roadburn in 2012!!”
We’re are excited to announce that occult rockers Saturnalia Temple and Year of the Goat have been added to the lineup for Roadburn Festival 2012.
Saturnalia Temple‘s latest album, Aion of Drakon, is far out, mesmerizing and just might be your new favorite slo-mo metal album. Come my fanatics, join the coven, and freak out over Saturnalia Temple on Thursday, April 12 at the 013 venue in Tilburg, Holland.
Just like Saturnalia Temple, Sweden’s Year of the Goat are creating quite a buzz in the rock underground with the release of their much acclaimed debut EP, Lucem Ferre (Latin for The bringer of light / The son of desert fire).
Year of the Goat are inspired by the occult rock bands of the late ‘60s and early ‘70s, however, the inspiration is not so much musical as it is about the subject matter of the lyrics and the picture they paint of pagan rituals, Satanism and the dark arts. Year of the Goat don’t really recreate the musical stylings of that era. Instead, the band adds a modern feel to their ‘70s flavored occult rock, with an almost prog rock or even indie rock approach to it.
Year of the Goat are currently working on their debut full-length, which will be released on Van Records next year.
Both Year of the Goat and Saturnalia Temple will play on Thursday, April 12 at the 013 venue in Tilburg, Holland.
