16:42 - Risto Interesting metal shows are getting more and more scarce here. No Teatria and Nuclear Nightclub is closing down this weekend :(
16:27 - Bad English Erik - I attend what I can in Luleå , dont trevel, it costs so ... but ned ppl damn ude 1h in train you're in Brussels or somewhere in Germany , ok 2h
16:23 - Erik M. I think more variety is definitely a good thing, so most doom subgenres would be nice (death/gothic/epic/funer al). Edgar, I don't attend live gigs often. Last time is already 6 months ago or so. Only when it's close to Tilburg...
16:22 - Bad English Erik I didnt know you attend live gigs , so you saw Marcel and other mates
16:20 - Erik M. Ah that would be a real shame. I haven't been to the first DDD but the last one was my least favourite, I have to say. Then again, the first time (2012) I only saw like 3 bands due to damn train delays (well, mainly :P).
16:14 - Marcel Hubregtse Erik, last year's Dordrecht Doom was by far the worst attended one of the four. So a bit more variation this time. If a certain number of visitors isn't reached this will be the last one.
Additional info 2LP version released by Southern Lord in June 2007 with what they call "Velvet Jacket", the jacket made of Velvet with the logo in black foil for Northsuite and silver foil for Genevieve. Limited to 1500 copies, 500 being marble-purple.
Black Metal is a genre that, despite popular belief, is not completely impervious to trends. One of the bands that painfully proved that is the American Velvet Cacoon. Within very little time, they became one of the most controversial and notorious Black Metal bands in the scene. An endless amount of rumours about drug-abuse, the "diesel harp" guitar, the stolen music and their political ideas turned almost every forum in a playground for giddy little kids, expressing their love or disgust for the band. And about a year later, it all turned out to be one big hoax. But what a brilliantly played, painfully reflective hoax it was.
I miss the good old days when Velvet Cacoon span their web of bullshit and fakery. Also discovered this band thanks to them "ripping" off their music (bit of a coincidence they're both from Portland, eh).
