Roadburn Festival is pleased to kick off the new year with a handful of new confirmations, plus the addition of a fifth stage. Tickets for the 20th edition of the festival are on sale now.
Minsk, Mount Salem, and Worm Ouroboros have been added to the line up at the 013 for Thursday, April 9th. Having previously performed at the 2009 edition of the festival, Minsk return to Roadburn, bringing an atmospheric, meditative ambience, offset by raging thrust. Look out for plenty of canyon-sized riffs, trippy sounding keyboards and enchanting vocals when Mount Salem conjurs a crushing windstorm to blow through Roadburn, whilst Worm Ouroboros will be spinning diaphanous webs of the most delicate chamber doom.
New Orleans heavyweights Goatwhore lead the charge, followed by Germany's Downfall of Gaia, noise-hardcore trio Cortez, and a dual-pronged sludge attack from both Fister and Moloch as the first bands announced for the intimate Cul de Sac venue.
As with the 2014 edition, Roadburn's fifth stage will be at Cul de Sac - a small music café located across from the 013 venue at 48 Heuvel, which is the street lined with bars and restaurants (also affectionately known as “Weirdo Canyon”). Four bands will perform at Cul de Sac on each day of the festival, Thursday - Sunday. Entry to these shows is sure to be in high demand, so attendees are advised to arrive early to secure access.
With regret, the festival's organizers have to announce that Lord Mantis will no longer be performing at Roadburn 2015. The band is unable to make it over to Europe due to personal reasons; as a result the performance at Roadburn and any shows around that will be cancelled. The vacant slot on the line up will be taken by Ohio sludge titans Fistula. More...
Agalloch has revealed that the band will release its fifth full-length album, entitled "The Serpent & The Sphere," on May 13th in North America via Profound Lore Records. The band will be working with Eisenwald for the release in Europe, with release dates of May 16th in Germany and May 19th for the rest of Europe.
In related news, a short sample of a new band, Hiraeth Eschar, featuring Agalloch bassist J. William W. is now available on Bandcamp. Hiraeth Eschar is comprised of JWW, Jessica Way (Worm Ouroboros / Barren Harvest) and Tanner Anderson (Celestiial / Blood and Sun / Obsequiae). On this recording the band was joined by guest Nathanaël Larochette (Musk Ox / The Night Watch). Hiraeth Eschar is currently writing for a full length album.

San Francisco trio Worm Ouroboros has posted a new song online titled "Withered" through Pitchfork.com. Check out the track at this location.
The song is taken off the upcoming album "Come the Thaw," scheduled for release in March via Profound Lore Records. The cover artwork is available below.
While it was briefly mentioned in passing in a recent article, Ludicra has official split and offered this short statement on the matter:
"The door is officially closed on Ludicra. It was a great trip, but all things have their end. Alternative Tentacles was an early supporter of Ludicra, and we appreciate their faith and their help to achieve what we could with out little rock band. Thanks."
Ludicra notably featured Aesop Dekker on drums, who also drums for Agalloch and Worm Ouroboros.
For a limited time, Alternative Tentacles is taking $2 off of both formats of 2006's classic "Fex Urbis, Lex Orbis." All orders will also receive a poster. Their previous A.T. release, "Another Great Love Song" is still available online through either iTunes or emusic.
Tuesday August 2nd from 1-2 PM New York time, AESOP DEKKER, drummer for AGALLOCH, WORM OUROBOROS and the recently split LUDICRA, will be guest DJing on Diane Farris' program on WFMU.
Aside from hosting a killer set of music, he will be making a statement about the demise of crucial black metallers, LUDICRA, who announced their split only days ago. Listeners can ask him questions on the live online playlist during the program.
WFMU can be heard at this location streaming and archived, and broadcasts in the NYC area on 91.1 FM.
On the second day of SXSW Music, there were more options for metal shows at night. I enjoyed bouncing around between shows on the first day and hoped to catch a few bands at different shows this evening, such as Christian Mistress, Agalloch, and the Alex Skolnick Trio. It didn’t pan out exactly as planned, but was a good night nonetheless.
As I wandered a few alleyways, looking for a few of the more obscure venues where these bands were playing, I stumbled upon the Barbarella Patio first, which is where Agalloch would be playing later that night. Upon entry, Amber Asylum was playing and I literally went back to the gate to double check the lineup posted there. They were so mellow that I thought I was in the wrong place. The band did have a couple of slightly heavier moments toward the end of their set, but overall they were far too mellow for my tastes. More...
