Ved Buens Ende // Alkerdeel // Lubbert Das
Babylon Doom Cult Records hosts a very special evening to celebrate the release of the upcoming new Alkerdeel album ’Slonk’. For this occasion we’ve invited none other than the legendary Ved Buens Ende to join Alkerdeel on stage. In addition to this already epic line-up special guest Lubbert Das will complete the bill.
‘Slonk' will be released on February 5th and will be a co-release between Babylon Doom Cult Records and Consouling Sounds.
Ved Buens Ende (NOR)
To many of you Ved Buens Ende doesn’t require much introduction. Formed in 1994 in Oslo the band was originally formed around Carl-Michael (Aura Noir, Virus, Dodheimsgard,... ) and Vicotnik (Dodheimsgard, Strid, Dold Vorde Ens Navn….) who were joined by Skoll (Ulver, Arcturus). Their full length album ‘Written in Waters’ was released in 1995 as a progressive black metal masterpiece, way ahead of its time. After a hiatus of more than 20 years, the band played a few well-selected shows around Europe. However, this will be their first ever live gig in the Benelux. Don’t miss out!
Alkerdeel spits out droney black doom metal with blown out practice space production, grinding guitars, blasting distorted drums, filthy super sick vocals, with stretches of loping minimal crunch, sort of mathy, all very heavy, doomy and even psychedelic. Essential for fans of Darkthrone, Burning Witch, Winter, Blut aus Nord or Beherit… as well as other practitioners of Grimm buzz and noise.
Lubbert Das (NL)
Lubbert Das was formed in Nijmegen in the summer of 2012 and is part of the Haeresis Noviomagi collective (a.o. Turia, Iskandr, Fluisteraars,…). Over the years Lubbert Das already built a reputation of furious and intense candlelit live performances. Shrouded in darkness, the band utilizes a unique combination of lo-fi and minimalist spectres of sound as well as a compositional style that is highly expansive in scope. Lubbert Das continues in surprising anyone searching for gripping and honest black art.
