DÖPUR started out is a one man music project conceived and created by Krummi Björgvinsson dedicated to the extreme side of power electronics, post-punk, blackmetal, drone, noise and beyond. Krummi´s fiancé Linnea later joined the band on keyboards and other instruments.

21/10 – GravelRoad
GravelRoad is a four-piece band from Seattle, USA. They mix the sound of the North Mississippi Hill Country Blues (including T-Model Ford, RL Burnside, Junior Kimbrough) with the fuzz and power of heavy Rock ‘n’ Roll.
In 2012 the release of their widely acclaimed album was “Psychedelta” (one of the albums of the year by Classic Rock Magazine).
2013 saw the release of their single “Pedernales”, recorded in Willy Nelson’s studio, and soon after released their next album “The Bloody Scalp Of Merlin Burt”.
Their latest album “El Scuerpo” dates from 2014, and this album lets us hear GravelRoad create their sound even more diverse and heavy.
GravelRoad were chosen by legendary blues musician T-Model Ford in 2008 as his regular backing band. This adventure lasted until 2013, when T-Model Ford died at the age of 92.
Together with T-Model Ford they did 9 (inter)national tours and released 2 albums – “The Ladies Man” (2010) and “Taledragger” (2011).

In October of this year their 7 inch vinyl disc “Weavin” will be released on the Knick Knack Records label.
The big news this year is that GravelRoad from August again dives into the studio to record their next album. This CD will be produced by none other than legendary recording engineer & producer Jack Endino, who worked on seminal albums for Nirvana, Soundgarden, Mudhoney …. !!

30/10 – Negură Bunget, Grimegod, Dynfari, Auðn

Negură Bunget and Dynfari are ending their US tour in Iceland! They will perform with Romanian deathmetal band Grimegod and Icelandic blackmetal band Auðn.

Negură Bunget released their seventh album, Tău, this year and has performed at over a hundred concerts in Europe and America since. The band was born in 1995 as a black metal band but has been heavily inspired by romanian folk music mixed with death metal. The music, the lyrics and the image of the band is deeply connected to their roots in the mountains and forests of Transsylvania. The album Tău is the first of a trilogy dedicated to their homes.

Grimegod is a band with members of Negură Bunget. They play a different kind of metal, more connected to gothic and doom death metal. The band has existed since 1991 and released 4 albums. The newest album is Wrong Roads from 2014.

AND
Concert with Mariske & One Bird Orchestra

One Bird Orchestra is a young collective founded in Brussels by four singers. Their love for vocal harmony and free improvised music joined them together in this new Brussels based project:
One Bird Orchestra has been in constant evolution. Their original compositions are brought to life by raw vocal sounds and improvisation. Truthful lyrics create a contrast between the dreamy, yet imminent style of the group. Sounds from the sea and up to the clouds. Heavenly harmonies flirt with flashing beats!
