Album Premiere: Morne – Live at Roadburn Thu, 19 Nov 2020 15:20:58 +0000

November 19, 2020

Today, American doom/crust titans Morne stream the entirety of their highly anticipated live album, Live at Roadburn. Set for international release on November 27th via Armageddon Label and Morne Records on CD and vinyl LP formats, hear Morne‘s Live at Roadburn in its entirety exclusively HERE.

This colossal tome that you are now able to preview in full registers the Boston band’s earth-shattering show at Roadburn 2019, and all of those present surely remember the dense miasma created by the band’s sludgy, merciless riffage on massive songs like ‘To The Night Unknown’ or ‘Not Our Flame’, an enormity of sound now further amplified by a powerful Brad Boatright mastering job.

Morne‘s raw and crusty approach that resonated throughout the Koepelhal on April 13th 2019 is perfectly captured on this recording, but don’t just take our word for it – frontman Milosz Gassan himself says, “Being invited to return to Roadburn Festival was a great honour for us, and we are excited to be able to share our set at Koepelhal in its entirety,” he told us. “We’re equally excited to release it on vinyl and join the ‘Live at Roadburn’ family. We would like to thank everyone involved in making it happen. Enjoy the album premiere!”

October 30, 2020

Some weeks, playlist inspiration can be thin on the ground, and other weeks there’s an abundance of new music – and the challenge comes from whittling it down to something cohesive and not six hours in length! Fortunately this week was the latter!

A Roadburn curation at LGW OFF: Saturday 14 November, De Helling, Utrecht (NL) Wed, 14 Oct 2020 18:25:31 +0000

October 14, 2020

Despite the uncertain times, Utrecht’s Le Guess Who? festival will present a Corona-proof program dedicated to Dutch artists (and to support local venues and partners as well) on November 14-15, called LGW OFF and we’re elated to announce that they have asked us to curate a stage at De Helling.

It’s no secret we’re huge fans of Le Guess Who? The festival’s an inspiration even in these times. We feel incredibly honoured, and we jumped at the chance to offer the festival – and its local and national visitors – a glimpse of the thriving Dutch underground, as it’s such a beacon of hope.

On Saturday 14 November, we will proudly present four Dutch bands that made an impact in Roadburn circles this year – both Doodswens and Turia will bring their much acclaimed, ritualistic (and experimental) take on black metal to LGW OFF, while deranged Dutch duo Plague Organ (ft. members from Cryptae, Imperial Cult and Dead Neanderthals) will play their first-ever live show and unravel a nauseating spell of dark kraut / avant-garde / ambient black and death metal deformity. To close the proceedings, darkened cosmonauts Radar Men From The Moon will perform their latest album, ‘The Bestial Light’, in its entirety, and showcase their enormous artistic growth over the last decade.

For those of you who can’t make it to LGW OFF, the renowned festival is offering a freely accessible online TV channel, called LGW ON, which will be showing videos, films and documentaries selected by past performers from 13 – 15 November.

Tickets for LGW OFF will go on sale at a later date – we’ll let you know asap!

If you have any questions regarding your visit in times of Covid-19, please visit LGW‘s FAQ.
