-(16)- from Los Angeles have been confirmed for the 2014 Roadburn festival in Tilburg, the Netherlands (see flyer below).
Over the last two decades, Californian veterans -(16)- have been pioneering heavy-as-hell, ill tempered sludge metal, alongside fellow luminaries Buzzov*en, Eyehategod and Crowbar (among others).
Despite all the anguish, pain and countless lineup changes that 20 years brought, -(16)- remained a dependable source of gutsy, misery infested, torturous sludge, captured on albums like Drop Out, Zoloft Smile and Deep Cuts from Dark Clouds.
Whether its the band’s mid tempo, aggressive metal assault, their sludgy dissonance or aggro-punk-hardcore filth, -(16)- spits it out with hateful, jaw-punching glee – thriving on chugging guitars, grinding bass and growling vocals that drive home the point like a blast of scuzzed-up vitriol.
Turn up, tune down, give up…
-(16)- will be playing at the 2014 Roadburn festival on Saturday, April 12th at the 013 venue in Tilburg, The Netherlands. Other Relapse Records artists confirmed for Roadburn 2014 are Lord Dying, ASG, Locrian, Windhand, True Widow and Inter Arma.
