Wretch get Roadburn 2017 off to a great start, with ex-The Gates Of Slumber frontman Karl Simon sounding rejuvenated, and clearly elated to be welcoming us all in to this celebration of Thee Riff. Meanwhile, the new Extase venue showcases its weighty sound system as Lycus crush both our skulls and our souls with their dark funeral doom, occasionally lapsing into savage bursts of black metal. It’s an astonishingly heavy set, one that our withered psyches were perhaps not fully prepared for at three in the afternoon, but such is the beauty of the Roadburn experience. With little time to recover, it’s off to witness fellow Oakland gloom-mongers Alaric jostle their way through a set of hefty Killing Joke-indebted post-punk in the Green Room, Rick Jacobus’s scuttling, cantankerous bass tone providing a stirring tonic to Noothgrush guitarist Russ Kent’s doom-laden riffs.


SubRosa’s first set of the weekend is utterly captivating, as the band treat a rapt audience to all of last year’s ‘For This We Fought The Battle Of Ages’ LP on the Main Stage, with the booming yet crystal clear sound highlighting the subtleties and restraint in their performance. Whilst it’s easy to get a good spot at the Main Stage, you’ve got to be swift to get into the Green Room sometimes, especially when Unearthly Trance are raging through material both new and old with such enthusiasm and ferocity, with the tightly packed crowd treating them like returning heroes – which, in many ways, they are. Long may they reign!

About Terrorizer Magazine

It’s safe to say most of the writing team this month are suffering post-Roadburn blues. It happens every year without a shadow of a doubt. If you want to read up on all the fun you either witnessed yourselves or sadly missed out on, for whatever reason, please turn to the live section of the magazine and bathe in some of the highlights of this year’s event. We also have some killer features in this issue, and as always, it’s a battle to feature every band Team Terrorizer loves. The good news is, what’s inside is a broad spectrum of bands who have long-established relationships with the magazine and with you guys too. Dying Fetus grace the cover, which we are very honoured about, and elsewhere there’s some killer interviews with Oxbow, who have returned after a decade; horror rocker Wednesday 13, Schammasch talk about their new opus, VoiVod get nostalgic with us and Vallenfyre have frankly blown the roof down at Tezza Towers with their album of the year contender. So what are you waiting for – stop reading my notes and get to the real action! See you next month! Adios
