SOILENT GREEN, PLACE OF SKULLS, ALCEST, IN SOLITUDE, BLOOD CEREMONY and GHOST have been confirmed for next year's edition of the Roadburn Festival, set to take place from Thursday, April 14 to Saturday, April 16 at the 013 venue and Midi Theatre in Tilburg, Holland. There will be an additional Afterburner event on Sunday, April 17, 2011.
Louisiana math-sludge merchants SOILENT GREEN's Roadburn performance will be part of the band's 2011 European tour, their first appearance on the continent in over 10 years!

PLACE OF SKULLS' founding member is none other than Victor Griffin, he of doom legends PENTAGRAM and DEATH ROW. In terms of emotive, dense, groovy riff-o-rama he's truly one of the great heavy vibe architects.

Musician and former peste noire guitarist St├ęphane "Neige" Paut's solo project alcest gracefully walks a pastoral, innocent, melancholy and devastatingly beautiful line between shoegaze and atmospheric black metal in a way that nobody has previously managed to pull off.

Formed in 2002 in the city of Uppsala, IN SOLITUDE are regarded as one of the hottest heavy metal bands to emerge from Sweden during the past decade.
Devoted to celebrating all aspects of cinematic Eurotrash, Sixties saturnalia and occult miscellanea, BLOOD CEREMONY's band name was inspired by the 1972 Spanish horror flick "Ceremonia Sangrienta". This adaptation of the Elizabeth Bathory legend is heavy on atmosphere and dread, with stunning visuals and a bleak ending. BLOOD CEREMONY's doomy vibes conjure up the very same imagery, embodying heavy riffs, paranoia-inducing trills and '70s fills.

Delivering litanies of sexually pulsating and satanic rock glorifying and glamorizing the perverted and profane, Sweden's GHOST is a devil-worshipping ministry currently making black, oppressive waves in the underground.

In other news, VPRO 3voor12, which is the leading cultural media network in the Netherlands, has posted additional on-demand audio streams for your Roadburn 2010 listening pleasure. Performances by SARKE, featuring DARKTHRONE's Nocturno Culto, YOB, JARBOE and Victor Griffin's DEATH ROW, among others, are currently available on-demand for free.
