COME TO GRIEF to Bring World of Hurt to Roadburn 2017

Killtown Bookings is proud to present; COME TO GRIEF (us) to Bring World of Hurt to Roadburn 2017

If you like your sludge extra filthy, GRIEF are a big part of the reason why.

Formed in Boston in 1991, they’d have a dirt-covered hand in shaping the genre of sludge metal on landmark releases like 1993’s Dismal, 1994’s Come to Grief and 1996’s Miserably Ever After, and their influence would continue to resonate long after their summary 2002 compilation, Turbulent Times, put a final misanthropic stamp on their tenure.

Grief is dead, but founding guitarist Terry Savastano formed COME TO GRIEF in 2015 as a rebirth of their disgruntled, slow-crawling malevolence, and today we can officially announce that Come to Grief will pay homage to Grief’s legacy at Roadburn 2017, playing on Sunday, April 23, at Het Patronaat.

Comprised of Savastano, drummer Chuck Conlon (who played on Grief’s last album, 2000’s …And Man Will Become the Hunted), as well as guitarist/vocalist Jonathan Hébert and bassist Justin Christian (Morgion), Come to Grief is the manifestation of Grief’s repugnant sludge, and after so long, it’s time for that repugnance to finally get its due.

Come To Grief will play Roadburn Festival at Het Patronaat, Tilburg, The Netherlands on Sunday, 23 April 2017.

Killtown Bookings will be working on a 8 date European tour for COME TO GRIEF around their performance at Roadburn 2017. If you are interested in bring COME TO GRIEF to your hometown please get in touch with daniel@killtownbookings.com

ASH BORER (us) and VANUM (us) to lay waste to Roadburn 2017!

Killtown Bookings is proud to present;
ASH BORER (us) and VANUM (us) to lay waste to Roadburn 2017!

One of the most notable black metal bands to grace Roadburn in the last number of years is Ashborer. This group of American innovators has gone from one of many in the explosive Cascadian black metal scene to a band that stands head and shoulders above all others with an ever-shifting sound that grows and evolves from each record to the next.

The one constant in the band’s career has been a ceaselessly urgent and overwhelming sense of creativity and expansion. From the highly touted early material on their split with Fell Voices to their impending release, The Irrepassable Gate, Ash Borer has always chosen vibrant and evocative new territory over stagnation.

This bold group, perhaps American black metal’s most promising hope, is prepared to make its return to Roadburn as part of a European tour planned with their friends and collaborators in Vanum.

Vanum is a project that is somehow, almost unbelievably, larger than the sum of its parts, with K. Morgan of Ash Borer and M. Rekevics of Fell Voices serving as its creative core. These two musicians have long had intersecting paths, yet on their 2015 release, Realm of Sacrifice, their shared commitment to only releasing what is essential and vital became consecrated in a more permanent, enduring form.

As Vanum currently focuses on a new release due in 2017, their European tour with their brethren in Ash Borer will surely set the whole continent ablaze with their harrowing blend of icy melody and blackened atmospheric majesty.

Both Ash Borer and Vanum will lay waste to Roadburn audiences at the 013 venue in Tilburg, The Netherlands on Thursday, April 20. It will be a pairing of sets that transcends the ordinary and this is not to be missed, as one of our most anticipated groupings of the festival.

Roadburn Festival 2017 will take place April 20-23 at the 013 venue, Tilburg, The Netherlands.

Killtown Bookings is currently in the process of booking a European tour for ASH BORER and VANUM based around their performance at Roadburn Festival, Vendetta Fest and other select events in April and May 2017.
