Next up: The Gathering ’92 & The 11th Hour & Akelei

As announced before, this Sunday 16th we’re opening for The Gathering in their 1992 reunion line-up and fellow doomsters The 11th Hour in a not-to-be-missed Dutch doom evening at Tivoli de Helling, Utrecht. Get tickets HERE. We’re looking forward big time! It will be the second time we perform the song ‘Heden’ after its debut in Dordrecht a few months ago. It’s still a work in progress and we’ve altered the ending somewhat during rehearsals. Maybe this will be one of those ‘live-only’ songs that never stay the same. There is a very different take on the song however that we will record later this year. And something else. Oh Winter will be creative times. Merlijn is going on a far East-Asia trip so we won’t be able to do shows during that time anyway.

Meanwhile, Pascal and his other band Faal will tour Europe this fall together with Worship. See details HERE to find out if they are playing near you. They are a most excellent live band, second album The Clouds Are Burning is highly recommended too if you prefer your funeral doom laced with black metal and post-rock.

That’s all for now. I hope to bring you reviews, photos and video of the Tivoli show in the next update.
