Craft at Roadburn Festival 2019

Rounding out the announcements for Tomas Lindberg’s The Burning Darkness curated event is the cult Swedish band, CRAFT. As ever, we hand over to our esteemed curator to tell us why this was such an essential pick for him…

“Craft was one of the first bands that I contacted for my announcement. I have been a big fan for a long time, and with the release of the astounding ‘White Noise and Black Metal’, it was a no brainer to include them.

“The way that they are able to still be true to their raw old school black metal sound, while stretching the boundaries of that same genre is what amazes me most. ‘White Noise and Black Metal’ is a beast; a monumental album that still grows on the listener. I have also had the pleasure of watching the band live, and At The Gates have worked together with Mikael Nox on our new album, so I am sure that they will blow us all away at Roadburn this year. I am so excited to have them as part of The Burning Darkness. Prepare to have your perception of reality scorched.”

CRAFT will perform on Friday, April 12 as part of The Burning Darkness curated event at Roadburn Festival.

We’re proud to announce that we’re teaming up with German black thrashers DESASTER and Polish black metal legends BLAZE OF PERDITION for exclusive European bookings!


Bang or be banged! Desaster’s history is going back to the year 1988 when two young Metal- possessed maniacs wanted to follow the path of bands like VENOM, HELLHAMMER or DESTRUCTION. Expect nothing more than a total METAL EXPLOSION! Beware and be prepared for sharp riffs, pounding drums, roaring bass and screaming hell…



Blaze of Perdition was founded in 2007 by the guitarist XCIII and started its activity by releasing a split CD „In the Void and Serpent, the Spirit is One” with the russian band Pseudogod. The band’s line-up changed numerous times over the years, however XCIII and Sonneillon remained the source of all musical and conceptual content. November 2nd 2013 turned out to be fatal as the band’s bassist died in a car crash on tour and the vocalist Sonneillon became unable to participate in live activities due to his serious injuries, however remained important in the band’s creative process and responsible for the studio vocal recordings, lyrics, graphic design as well as contact with the media.
