Desertscene in association with Sound of Liberation are proud to announce the duo of heavy stoner metal merchants Belzebong and heavy occult rockers The Necromancers will be hitting up The Lounge on 31st March.
Poland’s leading export of heavy stoner metal grooves, Belzebong have been tearing up the scene since 2008. Comprised of four mysterious dudes (Sheepy, Alky, Cheesy and Hexy respectively, as well as Boogey Dude on visuals), their fuzzed out, instrumental heaviness cuts through all the BS leaving nought but riffs for days. Breaking through with their first two full lengths Sonic Scapes & Weedy Grooves and Greenferno - released 2011 and 2015 respectively - Belzebong have been a reliable source of distorted low end and weed worship throughout the 2010’s.
Their surprise third full-length, Light the Dankness, released in October last year, serves up more of the uncompromising style Belzebong have become known for; slow, meaty riffs with a tinge of that tried and tested tripped out psych, perfectly enjoyed with eyes a-closed and head a-banging.
Also on the bill are Poitiers, France’s The Necromancers whose heavy rock mixes in many a style from the loud canon; so long as it riffs, The Necromancers are down with it. Releasing a sharp one-two punch of full lengths in 2017 and 2018 - Servants Of The Salem Girl and Of Blood and Wine - the occult rock four-piece run the gamut of heavy rock, from plodding doom to wavering psych to experimental progressive, all the while covering all points in between. Tied together with the immediately striking vocals of Tom Cornière, The Necromancers have a sound of their own in an ever expansive scene and you won’t want to miss them.
Be sure not to miss out when two of the scene’s best pass through The Underworld on March 31st. Book your tickets today.
