loss. worship. when icarus falls.

Mi | 21:00 | UT Connewitz | Wolfgang-Heinze-Straße 12a | Leipzig



LOSS (Nashville, Tennessee, USA – Profound Lore (CAN) / Parasitic Records (USA) / Contagion Releasing (USA))

gives us a much more sorrowful take on Sludge / Doom with their mournful rhythms, low growls, and an all around atmosphere of gloom that they give off. Theirs is a much mellower and slow sound and they express the emotional landscape of their music excellently. They continue the kind of music that is best played during for or rain to best emphasize the sorrow being put forth by these guys. Loss makes some of the saddest, yet most effective death/doom out there.

WHEN ICARUS FALLS (Lausanne, Switzerland – Get a Life Records (CH))

‚Since 2007, WHEN ICARUS FALLS play a heavy post-metal throughout Europe without any consideration for a genre whatsoever. After an acclaimed EP in 2009 and a long one in 2012 called AEGEAN, they‘re coming back on February 4th with a brand new EP: CIRCLES.

Recorded by Raphaël Bovey at Blend Studio for the drums and at WIF’s rehearsal room for guitars and voices, CIRCLES is in the direct continuation of the previous albums.
Between hazy atmospheres reminding the first EP – OVER THE FROZEN SEAS – and heavy riffs echoing AEGEAN’s grand final, this new episode should delight fans of the genre.'‘

eagle twin. twinesuns.

Di | 6. Mai | 21:00 | Hühnermanhattan | Hordorferstraße 4 | Halle

Eagle Twin (USA, Southern Lord, Sludge/Doom)

Behold the debut album from Eagle Twin. Although Eagle Twin is a very new entity its helmsman: Gentry Densley is no stranger to innovative, heavy music. Densley was the musical visionary and leader of the legendary Jazz, Prog, Rock, Metal, Hardcore group Iceburn from 1991-2001. Iceburn has been called the greatest and most important musical offering from Salt Lake City since the Osmonds! Gentrys‘ playing has been very influential to alot of successful modern music groups such as: Isis, Pelican, sunn 0))) etc.. In order to disseminate his majestic and mountainous riffs in the present day he enlisted massively behemoth skinsman Tyler Smith. The drums are not only a driving force that efficiently steam rolls over you they conjure a repetitious mantra that is eerily infectious.
Although Iceburn was primarily a instrumental force with Eagle Twin Gentry is much more vocal and the depth of his lyrics is endless. His vocal evocations bring to mind the hoarse rasp of Tom Waits and Howlin Wolf but possibly channeled through Tuvan throat singers! His voice, is used much like an instrument and often times creates a unique drone of its own. The riffs and music definitely have familiar reference points (Caspar Brotzmann Massaker,Earth, sunn 0))), Melvins etc..) but are crafted in a way that stands miles beyond the others.

Twinesuns (De, Drone/ Doom)

Twinesuns is a band formed by C. from Germanys NVRVD and Thor Ohe (ex- Kinsai, DNAmplified). With two guitars and a ton of different amplifiers, cabinets and pedals, the music developed in the drone/doom/ambient-metal direction. No need to mention the influence from bands like Sunn O))), Earth, Sleep, etc.

noothgrush. throw me in the crater. guts & guns.


Do | 10. April | 22:00 | Leipzig

NOOTHGRUSH (San Jose, California, USA – Fuck Yoga / Southern Lord / Parasitic / Emetic / Streak / Choking Hazard)

Noothgrush return with their first studio recording since 1998, and the disdain, the disgust… It hasn’t faded one bit. Their gruesome sludge is rooted in the real life, in the misery, hatred and despair of humanity – there are no traces of fantasy or psychedelic moments of horror movie nostalgia in this amoral cut of agonising doom. With Dino Somesse, the man who personified anguish in 90’s crust sludge golden calves Dystopia, joining the band on vocals, this is a rare ignition of the scum-ridden sludge sound which America haemorrhaged during the last decade of the millennium. Noothgrush’s side of the split opens with crawling, pained riffs punctuated with sparse percussion, and then the weight of the world comes down. Rasping vocals, disturbing samples, and songs which grab you by the throat and open your eyes to mad-made hell.

THROW ME IN THE CRATER (Eindhoven / Tilburg, The Netherlands – Death Trap Records)

Short but powerful: From The Netherlands comes Throw Me In The Crater, a sludge filth 5-piece that brings us razor sharp sounds of destruction. These guys left quite a mark after hearing them for the first time at last year’s Mudfest. Throw Me In The Crates is clearly a glorious throwback to the early rotten sludge days; think Iron Monkey, Grief, Buzzov•en, Fistula, Noothgrush and Eyehategod. The sound is ugly, filled with angry grooves and hateful vocals.

16. grime.


Di | 8. April | 21:00 | Plaque | Leipzig


16 (Los Angeles, California, USA – Relapse Records)

was formed in Santa Ana, Ca. by Bobby Ferry (guitar), Cris Jerue (vocals), and Jason Corley (drums) in 1992. Finding a lasting bass player was a problem until Tony Baumeister joined in 1993. The band’s first full-length album entitled „Curves That Kick“ was released in 1993 on legendary artist Pushead’s label „Bacteria Sour.“ Working with Pushead enabled the band to have the album released in Japan, as well as the opportunity to tour Japan, which happened in the summer of 1994. The band then did select live dates with Slayer, the Melvins, Unsane, Jawbreaker. The follow-up record „Drop Out“ was relased by Pessimiser/Theologian records in 1996 (although it was recorded nearly two years earlier). It received critical acclaim, but the band did not tour, and only performed locally and semi-locally.

GRIME (Trieste, Italy – Mordgrimm (UK) / Forcefield Records (US))

starts its mission in Trieste, Italy during summer 2010. Their only goal is bringing destruction to a town near yours. Their sound is rooted into rotten burial ground and their songs are the sound of a decaying swamp filled with trash. Their slow and heavy groove is filthy and vicious, guitar riffs are sharp and covered with rust, drums and bass hit with the unstoppable power of a mud avalanche. They will keep spread their plague in your town very soon. Be afraid.

Donnerstag | 10. Oktober | 21.00 | Black Label | Wolfgang Heinze Straße 38 | Leipzig


(Malmö, Sweden – Total Rust / Head Records / Eccocentric Records / Behind the Scenes)

is still a young creature. Dan H and Viktor started jamming around the summer of 2006 as an excuse to get away from humanity and worship slow riffs. Some months later songs started taking shape and the thought of Pyramido became more serious.

Doom / Sludge / Heavy Metal / Hardcore

(Leipzig, Germany – Alerta Antifascista Records)

The five-piece band creates a dark, cold atmosphere of both stillstand and progress, slicing heavy fog while delving into spiritual abyss. Inspired by ancient Mythology and contemporary culture as well as personal experience and introspection, the music accompanies the lyrics by a [homogeneous] fusion of different [varieties of] metal genres, in a monotonous, hypnotic manner.
