ROADBURN 2013 UPDATE: Pallbearer, Cult of Luna, Primordial, The Electric Acid Orgy & More ...
Thanks to The Sleeping Shaman and of course Roadburn.Com for these updates.
Roadburn jubilantly announces that Pallbearer will bring their classic doom sound to our 2013 Festival on Thursday, April 18th at the Het Patronaat in Tilburg, Holland. Pallbearer‘s epic, timeless riffs and modern production have been taking the music world by storm with their recently released debut album Sorrow and Extinction, no small feat for a doom band. With soaring vocals and fat riffs, one might be tempted to compare them to doom stalwarts like Candlemass, Trouble, and Solitude Aeturnus, but their guitar sound has a thickness and drive that instantly sets them apart. On closer listens, their sweeping, sorrowful metal reveals masterfully executed songwriting that is truly their own creation. They weave in proggy complexity, power metal soloing sensibilities, clean vocal harmonies, tender acoustic interludes and stunning dynamic variation to create multi-faceted and utterly engrossing pure doom.
We are very much looking forward to experiencing the majesty and power of Pallbearer at Roadburn 2013, and invite fans of the band to come celebrate with us, and encourage those who don’t know them to come discover why they are so buzzworthy. Roadburn Festival 2013 will run for four days from Thursday, April 18th to Sunday, April 21st, 2013 (the traditional Afterburner event) at the 013 venue in Tilburg, Holland. Pre-sales start Thursday, 4 October at 20:30 CET.

Walter & Co are elated to announce that Ireland’s epic, pagan metallers Primordial will headline the Thursday Roadburn date, Thursday, April 18th at the 013 venue in Tilburg, Holland. Primordial are truly a band unlike no other; over the last two decades, they have passionately carved a niche of their own, without compromise! We at Roadburn would like to pay tribute to Primordial‘s massive and melancholic art by inviting them as our Thursday headliners, the band is simply stunning, from their powerful songwriting to the amazing performances. Please mark our words: Primoridal will take Roadburn by storm with an unmatched and unbridled epic grandeur. Are you ready?
