Ok, seeing the international stature of this festival let’s do this in English!
ABSOLUTELY BEYOND THRILLED TO ANNOUNCE THIS KILLER OF A LINE-UP AT UTRECHT’S MOST GENUINE UNDERGROUND VENUE:
For starters, we present you VIOLENT MAGIC ORCHESTRA from JAPAN, a theatrical mess up of Black Rites, Pumping Beats, Noise, Screeching Vocals & Sheer Terror. This performance is going to be talked about, we assure you. Nerve-jangling, Apocalyptic, Devastating & simply AMAZING. Check this vid, & imagine yourself in the crowd… This will be one to remember.
After this appetizer for disaster, the fun continues with Japan’s finest noise mongers VAMPILLIA. This band take the word ‘crossover’ to an entirely new level. Their borderline mix of (black) metal, classical, noise and jazz is something probably no other band in the world comes close to. Not even slightly. Vampillia’s overall weirdness is unrivaled and will leave you asking yourself what the heck you just saw and heard.
We will top off this night of top notch underground music with one of our all-time favorite and genuine hiphop collectives DÄLEK who have managed to redefine the genre boundaries of hiphop music. Dälek may call themselves hip-hop, but they’re heavy enough to open for Isis, adventurous enough to sign to Mike Patton’s Ipecac label, and crazy enough to make a record with Faust. Their own albums are both dense and immediate: Producer Oktopus and turntablist Still create a sound that’s intricate but hammeringly loud, while MC and producer Dälek’s lyrics are multi-layered yet urgent. This is another take on music altogether.
