EXCLUSIVE SETS (SVART SESSIONS): Doodswens performing songs from their upcoming debut album

SVART Records is at the heart of some of the most exciting and boundary pushing releases that cross our paths here at Roadburn HQ. For Roadburn Redux we’re delighted to have teamed up with the venerable label to present a handful of performances by bands that truly epitomise what the label is all about. It gives us great pleasure to introduce these bands to you, and bring them to your homes this April under the banner of Svart Sessions.

As an international premiere, and the last band to complete the Svart Sessions, Svart and Roadburn are proud to debut a performance from Dutch Black Metal duo Doodswens. Featuring songs from their upcoming debut album to be released by Svart in October 2021, Doodswens are one of the foremost rising dark stars of atmospheric Black Metal out there right now. Breathing new life into the dust of the past, inspired by the rawness of the ’90s, Doodswens blend old school Black Metal to conjure their very own atmospheric wall of sound.

“If it’s darkness that you’re used to it’s the light that you need to fear”

That beam of light is Doodswens. They have climbed from the deepest depths and have conquered the darkest parts of their minds to be able to share their experience.

Doodswens is a two-piece black metal band from Eindhoven (NL), founded in autumn 2017 by Fraukje van Burg (vocals and guitar) and Inge van der Zon (drums). Their first demo was released by Headbangers Records in 2019, releasing a split 7” with Adversarius the following year to cult and underground infamy. Inspired by The Book Of The Dead, their forthcoming new album is a highly conceptual work which deals with life and death, reaching enlightenment and fulfilling the symbolic death wish.

Doodswens will perform as part of Roadburn Redux, taking place between April 16-18.
