21:30-22:15 Stinking Lizaveta
(The most filthy and ruthless thrash band Norway have seen in a long time)
Thrash, with two h's, in its most filthy, loud and ruthless incarnation. Nekromantheon summon the musical legacy of bands like Kreator, Sadus and Destruction to create a tornado of sound of their own. Turning venues into tombs, their riffs eat their way through your chest, straight to your heart, to turn it into one rotting piece of worthless flesh. The only thing that keeps you standing is the kick of the pounding bass drum that takes over the function of your heart. Enter at your own peril.
Ramesses (Crushing doom metal from England, featuring ex-members of Electric Wizard)
With band members that were part of Electric Wizard when they released the 'Dopethrone' and 'Come My Fanatics...' albums, it's safe to say we're dealing with legends of doom metal here. But the past isn’t necessary for Ramesses to prove their point. Light doesn’t dare to enter when they turn on their amps. And it doesn’t need to. Crushing walls of sound, thick heavy riffs and psychedelic overtones will overtake the venue during their Black Hash Mass. Don’t come unprepared.
(Sweaty instrumental stoner rock with progressive and psychedelic rock)
Stinking Lizaveta tell their stories by compelling melody, hypnotizing rhythm, passion and detail. Back to the instrumentation core of a drummer, bass player and guitarist, the band has been grooving on Sabbath riffs for the past 15 years. They combine a unique brand of sweaty instrumental stoner rock (think Karma to Burn) with progressive and psychedelic rock elements. Is it worth mentioning they’ve played the Roadburn festival too? You probably already guessed it!
Darsombra (Solo project of Meatjack member, using and abusing guitars for trippy improvised drones)
At times when Brian Daniloski is not going berserk on his noise rock project Meatjack, he transforms to his solo project Darsombra. Over some field recordings and soundscapes he uses and abuses his guitar for some trippy improvised drone and ambient music. Definitely not your typical background music, but well textured and dynamic arrangements. He already played the 2010 edition of Incubate, but you know we barely book artists twice unless with a good reason…
Tarentatec barely released any studio recorded material for the time they have been active since 2003, but who’s got the time for that when you’re constantly on the road? They can be compared with the bands they toured with like Schnaak (Incubate 2011) and Stinking Lizaveta (also playing this year), but also with a healthy dose of Melvins and Frank Zappa on a heavy improvised stoner jam trip.
