Verdun - The Cosmic Escape of Admiral Masuka LP

Named after the most inhuman battle in the First World War, VERDUN (France) are one of those bands that are hard to label, merging the lines between sludge/doom and slowed-down dark hardcore.

Heavy and dry riffing, neck-breaking groove, incantatory vocals, fogs of delay and a strong psychedelic feel, that’s what you can expect from the half-hour of their debut EP “The Cosmic Escape Of Admiral Masuka” out in early 2012 on Head Records and Throatruiner Records.

Carrying a strong live reputation with their never ending tours over Europe, VERDUN is definitely one of those bands to watch for any fan of Burning Witch, Electric Wizard, or Amenra; and by extension anything dark and crushig.
