For almost a decade, we have been showcasing promising Dutch or Belgian bands that have their own vibe, while at the same time possessing that certain Roadburn flair. We strongly feel that the Dutch underground is currently brimming with talent, and needs to be explored by our international community, too. In collaboration with Never Mind The Hype – an independent Dutch music platform for everything heavy, alternative and deviant – we’d like Verwoed to (re)connect with our receptive attendees during an intimate show at the Cul de Sac on SaturdayApril 21 in TilburgThe NetherlandsVerwoed starts at 1.30pm.

Hailing from UtrechtVerwoed is one of the most exciting bands to spearhead the New Wave of Dutch Black Metal, a new generation of musicians on the rise, and even developing a cult of their own. The band’s much acclaimed debut album, Bodemloos, delves deep into paranoia and schizophrenia – Verwoed’s malicious, darkened feel offers a visceral ascension into full-blown psychosis. It serves as a hallucinogenic exploration through harrowing black metal, and dense, melodic ambience, which is both terrifying and soothing – catharsis through ugliness and utter beauty.

Over the last few years, Dool and Laster’s performances stunned press, industry and fans alike, and we feel that Verwoed will do the very same at Roadburn 2018, as the band shows such a considerable growth since their 2017 performance at Cul de Sac as well. In fact, Verwoed is now definitely on par with their Scandinavianbrethren, and will conquer all in their path. Rumours on the street are that Verwoed will have a second album out soon.
