"Heavy Days In Doom Town - A DIY celebration of all things slow and heavy " New Danish doom / sludge / stoner festival. Copenhagen 3rd - 6 May 2012
COPENHAGEN IS GETTING HEAVY IN MAY Copenhagen has a new festival to add to its long list of successful festivals. “Heavy Days In Doomtown - a celebration of all things slow and heavy” will be held at three venues across Copenhagen.
The three venues will be Stenagade in Nørrebro, Loppen in Copenhagens freetown Christiania and Ungdomshuset in Nordvest.
The four days will include four days of heavy rock such as doom, sludge, stoner rock and psych.
The program includes three American names that have never previously played in Europe including newly reunited, Noothgrush (USA). It is safe to say that Noothgrush has achieved legend status within this genre and will certainly attract many metal fans.
The program includes a wide array of notable bands that will be sure to please fans of these genres. “Undergrundsmusikens Fremme” is responsible for the Heavy Days In Doomtown initiative. They have also produced the highly succesful “Kill-Town Death Fest” in 2010 and 2011 (http://www.killtowndeathfest.dk). The association now has new people and new ideas which are behind this new festival. Heavy Days in Doomtown will be spread over several areas of Copenhagen. – “The idea behind this is to reach as many people as possible and celebrate the great rock venues this city has to offer. We also think it’s a great opportunity to showcase the city through the perspective of a music festival” says Daniel Abecassis, who is chairman of the “Undergrundsmusikkens Fremme” association.
Besides music, the association has invited several artists to give the festival a visual expression parallel to the music. The festival will be exhibiting several artists throughout the festival to add a multi layered experience for the festival goer.
The festival is organized with DIY principles which means that both the organizers, musicians and other artists work for free to create an amazing event. - "In addition to creating a new, fantastic music festival, we want to promote DIY culture in the new musical environments who usually work more commercial. By doing it in practice, we show that a festival can be run professionally with a focus on sound, service and great music even if we keep it non-commercial, "says Daniel Abecassis.
Heavy Days In Doom Town will include the following: -Warmup show at Stengade with exhibitions upstairs -Two days of music, art, and events in Ungdomshuset Dortheavej 61 -Sunday event at the Freetown Christiania with video screening at Videodromen in Byens Lys, concert / jam event in front of Månefiskeren with Lynched (irl), Øresund Doom Collective aka Øresund Space Collective and DIY market with records, t-shirts, food and other goodies. The festival will end with a concert in Christianias music venue, Loppen.
More info: Underground Music Promotion is proud to present nothing less than three names that have never played in Europe before; Noothgrush (us), Aldebaran (us) and Pilgrim (us). Noothgrush are the sludge cult legends from Oakland who played together from 1994-2002 and published a lot of split releases with, for example, Japanese Corrupted and American Sloth and Gasp. They reunited last year and played a few concerts in the U.S. with legendary Winter and have now decided to visit Europe for the first time in their career. They bring Dino Sommese as lead singer, known from the legendary Oakland bands Dystopia and Asunder. We are very honored that the first show will take place at HDDT and we also have received the honor of arranging their first European tour with Portland's heaviest funeral doom outfit Aldebaran. Aldebaran has played together since the beginning of the millennium, but has never visited Europe before. Aldebaran shares members with anarcho-black metal band Wolves In The Throne Room. Pilgrim is a new trio from Rhode Island, which has just been signed to Metal Blade. HDDT is proud to present them and their first appearance on European soil. Jex Thoth is the name of the lead singer and focal point for Wisconsin's new retro 70s rock outfit. Jex Thoth is beautiful, mesmerizing and alluring. Other international names that are worth highlighting is English Wounded Kings , Japanese Coffins and German Worship. The festival wants to highlight the upcoming Scandinavian names and therefore more than half of the lineup consists of bands from the Scandinavian countries. We are very proud to introduce bands like; Lord Vicar (fin), Griftegård (swe), Burning Saviours (swe), Jess And The Ancient Ones (fin), Moonless (dk) Bottom Feeder (dk) and Ocean Chief (swe). HDDT has also placed extra emphasis on booking bands with women to the festival. We are therefore proud to present the bands of tough women in Noothgrush (us), Aldebaran (us), Jex Thoth (us), Wounded Kings (uk), Purson (uk), Cauchemar (can), Jess And The Ancient Ones (fin) and Profetus (fin).
