Roadburn 2013 confirmations are slowly seeping in and thus far i wasn’t too incredibly happy with the bands confirmed. Of course there is Kadavar playing, which i really like and of course it makes no sense worrying about the line up because that’s never the problem at Roadburn. The actual problem usually is fitting seeing all those amazing bands in your day. But anyway, so far there wasn’t much to my liking yet. Until now. Yesterday they announced that the Ruins of Beverast will be playing the festival.
If you aren’t familiar with them i suggest you check out their 2009 album Foulest Semen of a Sheltered Elite. One of the best doom albums in recent years. Just ‘doom’ wouldn’t describe this band properly as they also mix in death/doom/industrial and more into their sound. It also has a nice 90’s sound/vibe to it in my opinion. Really curious how this will work in a live setting especially on the 013 mainstage (assuming they play there).
