Becoming The Forest x Addergebroed invite: Iskandr

Wo 05 april 2023

Live radioshow + concerten/dj's in de Bosbar en via We Are Various

You are all cordially invited for a night filled with rich audio fragments, bleak black metal, thought provoking art, and a one-off ISKANDR live show that will be forever ingrained in your hapless skulls. “Come forth into the light of things. Let Nature be your teacher.”

Becoming the Forest, in their own words, are treading the arboreal pathway through the backwoods of black metal. For the fourth consecutive time, this has resulted in a marvelous compendium of thoughts, words, images - and everything in between - heralding the magnificent world of black metal, and, by definition, its quintessential relationship to nature. On this evening Una Hamilton Helle & Lotte Brown (of BtF) present Sylvan (re)searchers, an audio journey! read more about this here

Addergebroed, in their own words, albeit loosely translated to English; 'viper brood, 'viper brood 0.1 young vipers 0.2 evil people who poison the happiness of others 0.3 objectively and selflessly promoting the extreme underground; direct, honest and qualitative. Addergebroed lives & breathes black metal, and has been valiantly and proudly doing so since 2011.

Iskandr, in their own words; After releasing three acclaimed studio albums and a number of EP’s, in which multi-instrumentalist O. was supported by M. Koops (Fluisteraars) on drums, Iskandr has since developed a new direction with an eye for live performance as a solo artist. A heavy sound of psychedelic folk doom is emphasized by film footage of sublime natural scenery: towering sun-drenched mountains and medieval ruins in enchanted forests. Ever as regal and triumphant like the black metal albums Iskandr is known for, the new album will focus on the intersection of medieval atmospheres, otherworldly post-industrial musical cues reminiscent of early Dead Can Dance, as well as the psychedelic folk music of the 60’s and 70’s. If the widely shared single “Knagend Zout” is an indication of what is to come, Iskandr proves to deliver on his intention to deliver a unique and captivating new blend of deeply atmospheric heavy music.

Solely responsible for putting these three together, though, are the magnificent people of We Are Various aka WAV, and Het Bos.

“Up! up! my Friend, and quit your books.”
