Powerful and painful are the words with which the sounds of Wijsgeer & Narreman, the first life signs of the Dutch LASTER, are illustrated best. Looping lamentation and genuine gloom brought to life by songs which leave the standard of DSBM far behind. Floating riffs, melancholic and full of grace, rolling drums and pressing lyrics tell stories about pain that was lived through and artistic musicianship. This music’s pathos aspirated by an energy standing up again and again to fade within monotonous doubt and to indulge in blind despair. LASTER however is no whiny band of wimps, but emotional, true Black Metal who are worth believing in. For fans of URFAUST and AUSTERE. Limited to 100.

Let’s take a final deep breath before diving head first into the abyssal world of J.H., the artist behind SHADES OF DEEP WATER. Just be there, when the first guitarsounds fill your room – we’re taken out of this world and pushed under water just to realize how futile existence is. Looking up, there’s only the full moon shining above the still surface, while we slowly drift away with eyes wide open, carried by the melodies. Deeper and deeper down we are drawn into the world of SHADES OF DEEP WATER – with a smile on our faces, because this is music for those connoisseurs who are able to stop and inhale every note.

Anneke van Giersbergen, forever known as the former vocalist for melancholic metallers The Gathering and for her collaborations with the Devin Townsend Project and Arjen Lucassen (i.e. The Gentle Storm), formed VUUR in 2016, a new progressive metal band featuring renowned drummer Ed Warby (Gorefest, Ayreon) and some of the best heavy metal players in The Netherlands! The name VUUR – translated from Dutch as “fire”, which can also be interpreted to mean “passion” or “drive” – was chosen as a moniker to represent Anneke's metal side, with the idea that when fans buy a ticket with the VUUR name on it they will be getting her heavy progressive music, while an Anneke van Giersbergen show will be entirely different. “It's like I'm searching for contradictions,” Anneke says of splitting her focus in two. “I want the heavy to be really heavy, and the soft acoustic stuff that I can do can be almost silent and inward. I'm trying to find those outer limits. I'm still writing and collaborating with different people, so VUUR's style is still kind of different from The Gathering and The Gentle Storm. VUUR's music has the melancholy of The Gathering and certain elements from The Gentle Storm, but it's darker with fewer folk elements. It's still melodic and warm, but heavy.” Thus, “In This Moment We Are Free – Cities” features crushing riffs and impressive rhythm patterns whereas Anneke sends shivers down your spine with a truly intense vocal lines. So, make sure to check out Anneke’s ultimate heavy outlet.
