Fischer commented:

“The three parts of the Requiem will be performed by Triptykon at Roadburn 2019, with full classical orchestration, congregated specifically for this occasion by Florian Magnus Maier, who is our esteemed classical collaborator and arranger in this project, and whose patience with me appears to be limitless. We feel very proud and deeply honoured to be joined in this endeavour by the renowned Dutch Metropole Orkest.”

Sleep & More To Perform At 2019 Roadburn Festival, At The Gates’ Tomas Lindberg To Curate

Sleep will be headlining the 2019 Roadburn Festival, which is set to take place on April 11-14 at 013 in Tilburg, Netherlands. The band are planning two career spanning sets on April 13-14, including one focusing on “Holy Mountain” and another one focusing on “The Sciences.“ Aside from them, the event will also feature Birds In Row, Gore, Have A Nice Life, Heilung, Louise Lemón, Midnight, Seven That Spells, and Vile Creature. Furthermore, At The Gates’ Tomas Lindberg has been confirmed as the curator and the bands he chooses will perform on April 12-13 under the name “The Burning Darkness.”

Lindberg commented:

“There really are no words that can describe just how excited I am about this! To be asked to curate Roadburn in 2019 is an incredible honor. I have been at the last three editions of Roadburn, and it is by far my favorite musical happening every year. It is here I finally get to see bands live that have been on my radar for a while, and it is here that I – without fail – discover new music.

Just because of my involvement with At The Gates, Roadburn 2019 isn’t going to turn into a death metal festival, however there will definitely be a renewed focus on darkness and extremity – in every form.

I know curating a part of the Roadburn festival is a huge responsibility; one that I take deeply seriously. I am aiming to stay true to the Roadburn tradition of bringing a mix of exciting favourites mixed with a lot of new, challenging artists to the festival. Roadburn for me has always been about eclecticism, and underground music of all styles that desperately demand your attention. Walter and I have already started talking about possibilities, and I am super excited about the direction of these talks. See you there!”

Stay tuned for more announcements.

Godflesh to perform their Selfless album in its entirety Roadburn Festival 2018 as part of Jacob Bannon’s curation Godflesh are the the genre-blurring band founded by Justin Broadrick and G.C. Green in 1988. Their approach melds electronic/dub influences with the aggression of the metal and punk world. This forward thinking style has made Godflesh one of the most important bands to ever surface from the “extreme” music world. Laying the foundation for the blossoming post-metal world that dominates heavy music today. “I first experienced Godflesh when I picked up the Grindcrusher compilation from Earache Records as a teenager. The otherworldly power of Streetcleaner effected me in a way that I still find hard to describe. Since then I have been an avid follower of all music that Justin creates. Though I celebrate the expansive Broadrick catalog as a whole, it is his forays into melody under the Godflesh name that I really connect with. Selfless as is an album that has everything for me. Punishing heaviness, incredible hooks, and limitless emotional depth. It is a true honor that they have agreed to play this album in its entirety at Roadburn 2018” – Jacob Bannon.

@Crowbarmusic to perform "Odd Fellows Rest" in its entirety at Roadburn 2018 . As part of Jacob Bannon's curation, Crowbar will perform their classic album "Odd Fellows Rest" in its entirety at Roadburn Festival 2018. . Crowbar have been at the forefront of heavy music for nearly three decades. Early in their career, they were of the first to combine the key elements of the Doom and Thrash metal sounds, pioneering what is considered the Sludge metal genre. After a number of breakthrough releases, Crowbar released their 1998 album "Odd Fellows Rest". This incredible album merged their existing heaviness with a refined melodic sensibility, creating one of the most powerful metal albums of the era. . "In 1991 I was introduced to Crowbar when I bought a tape of their "Obedience thru Suffering" album. The sheer heaviness of the band floored me and I was hooked ever since. For me personally, their 1998 album "Odd Fellows Rest" is a high watermark of creativity. It is an incredible collection of songs that have been daily listens for me for nearly two decades. It's an honor to have the band perform this record live at Roadburn Festival 2018." . – Jacob Bannon . #jacobbannon #jbannon #converge #wearyourwounds #roadburn #crowbar #oddfellowsrest #roadburn #roadburnfestival

The second will be a performance of our new album "The Dusk In Us" in its entirety. @jbannon commented: "It took our band nearly five years to cut and shape our most recent album The Dusk In Us. Scheduled for release on November 3 through Epitaph and Deathwish, it is a very emotional album for the band. All four of us went through a lot of trials and tribulations in those years and it is reflected in those songs, connecting with our lives ways hard to put into words. It will be an honor to play this material in its entirety for the Roadburn audience. We hope it will be as special for you as it will be for us.” Tickets go on sale October 19th.
