One of the most anticipated festivals in Belgium (at least here at Merchants Of Air), Dunk!Festival has announced a first batch of names for the 2016 edition. It already looks quite promising and I'm sure other awesome bands will be added soon. The pre-sale will also start somewhere within the next few weeks.
Lithuanian duo Hellhookah have released a first song from their upcoming album 'Endless Serpents'. If you're into good ol' fashioned doom metal with a hint of stoner rock, this surely is something to check out.
Dutch sludge band Herder lives by the motto 'Herder Is Harder' and apparently, that got them in trouble last weekend. At a metal festival in Hilversum (NL), including loud acts like The Shining, Enthroned and Sodom, the drummer was asked to stop playing so loud. Of course, that usually doesn't really work and after a set of only 22 minutes, police escorted the band out of the venue.
The organisation mentioned that the band exceeded the volume limit and continued to do so after the sound technicians tried to resolve the problem. Herder seems to think the whole incident is quite funny and narrow minded and will obviously continue to be one of the hardest bands in The Netherlands.
