SOURVEIN, COFFINS Confirmed For Holland's ROADBURN Festival

SOURVEIN and COFFINS have been confirmed for the 2011 edition of the Roadburn festival, which will run for four days, from Thursday, April 14 to Sunday, April 17 at the 013 venue and Midi Theatre in Tilburg, Holland. They will perform at the Afterburner event on Sunday, April 17, 2011.

Featuring former members of 13 and BUZZOV*EN in their ranks, SOURVEIN offers low-tuned, balls out, southern sludge metal. Word on the streets is that they have been slaying audiences across the U.S. for the last couple of years with their heavy-as-fuck assault.

Influenced by old-school '80s and '90s doom and thrash, Japan's COFFINS death metal onslaught also shows some heavy and oppressive sludge metal tendencies keeping them somewhere near the doom category, despite the band's occasional upbeat parts or outbursts of speed. Since 1996, COFFINS has put out crushing release after release culminating into 2008's "Buried Death", a punishing masterpiece of death doom (think "Come my Fanatics"-era ELECTRIC WIZARD playing death metal, and you get COFFINS).

Sponsored by Terrorizer and Germany's Rock Hard, the 2011 edition of the Roadburn festival will include GODFLESH's performance of its seminal debut full-length album, 1989's "Streetcleaner", in its entirety, SUNN O)))'s special event, headliner SWANS, CANDLEMASS celebrating 25 years of doom (including a performance of the "Epicus Doomicus Metallicus" album in its entirety; featuring original vocalist Johan Längquist), WOVENHAND and WARDRUNA (the dark ambient folk project led by former GORGOROTH drummer Kvitrafn).
