Graveland Festival – Day 1

Graveland Festival is the place to be if you’re into (underground) death and black metal. This year’s headliners are well worth the 99 euro for a two-day festival. This years’ line-up includes Tiamat, Carcass, Dool, Necrophobic, Tsjuder and Wolves in the Throne Room, besides of course a lot of other bands and even some local legends. Jose was there for us to take some pictures and give us his impression of the festival.

The nice thing about Graveland is that it has only one stage, so you don’t have to choose which bands you want to see. That means that there are bound to be some bands that you’ve never heard of before, but make some pretty interesting music.

Deadspeak

Deadspeak describe themselves as Filthy guitars, rotting low end, pounding riffs, and atmospheric interludes. They make nasty death-metal, which is heard on their latest release ‘Tidal Disruption’. They had the honor to open for Graveland this edition, and the sure made the most of it! Their debut album will drop later this year, and they made sure we are excited for that.

Deathless Void

Soul-shattering grimy black-metal…those words describe Deathless Void perfectly. Operating more in the black-metal underground, Deathless Void stepped out onto the big stage today to deliver a killer performance during Graveland Festival. The squeals from their vocalist made the hairs on our arms stand straight up, and the fire made sure we could feel a least a little bit of heat, since the weather still wasn’t great.

After some metal, it’s time for food and drinks. Besides the usual stuff Graveland has some good meat too. We need that with weather like this. It’s a bit hard to find a place to actually eat the food, since it’s been raining a lot all day. After a well-deserved food break a some rest in the tent, we’re back to the festival site for some more metal.

Dool

Dool is an interesting band. Mixing dark vibes with gothic and progressive metal, we’re not sure how to label this band. And maybe we shouldn’t, with their latest album titled ‘Shape of Fluidity’. Being one of the Netherlands most well-known acts, their versatility means that they fit in well on a variety of stages.

They definitely fit the Graveland stage, as they play a very well-balanced set with plenty of crowd-pleasing songs.
