Roadburn Festival 2015 - Day 2: The Known And The Unknown 25.05

Che: As you guys might remember, for the past six years or so Roadburn has been having a curator take command on this second day, a member of a fairly well known band who not only gets to headline with the band on that day, but also selects which bands will be playing on three of the five stages. This year, curating duties went to Ivar Bjornson of Enslaved and Einar Selvik of Wardruna, immediately raising my curiosity for this "Houses Of The Holistic" day far beyond Mikael Akerfeldt's curating last year.

Dråpsnatt - I Denna Skog (2009)

Dråpsnatt, I Denna Skog. A lot of impossible-to-pronounce, where-the-hell-are-those-letters-on-my-keyboard, who-the-hell-are-these-guys-anyway stuff. But, rest assured, those letters are available in 'Word -> Add special characters' and rest assured, the music is worth it. Let's proceed. At first, I Denna Skog does not sound all too surprising. The songs "I Denna Skog" and "Under Fullmånens Sken" start in punkish, crunchy fashion with some background... (by Lucas)   Read more ››
