the тide øf тhe εnd

Last August a new Dutch initiative was born out of total disinterest with current underground labels & bookers. Some of the true highlights in todays music seem to be overshadowed by their more palatable counterparts. тhe тide øf тhe εnd works in presenting outsider art through releases, distribution and events. Starting this month they’ll be showcasing a wide variety of extreme underground music through a series of live aktions at OCCII. The first edition, May 18th, presents a diverse line-up of acts within the genres of noise, industrial and power electronics. Pioneers and cult acts are playing alongside some more recent but very inspiring local groups. BLACK LEATHER JESUS will do their first ever European tour in decades of existence and they are taking along Dutch harsh noise project SVARTVIT. Power electronics pioneer CON-DOM is playing along on some of those dates, including Amsterdam. Other acts that night are BRUT, PURGING LIGHT and ZYRTAX. Likely to take everything to the extreme, both aural and visual.

The second, already scheduled, event will be going across genres to present an eclectic mix of misery. WATER TORTURE will deliver some noise-drenched powerviolence at a blistering speed. KNIFEDOUTOFEXISTENCE (Ex-WITCH CULT) delves into power electronics and harsh noise with a punk mindset. For some local support we’ll have QUALM totally primitive hardcore or in their own words ‘mongoloid stomp’. Future events are already in the works and will bring us more noise, industrial, powerviolence, black metal, coldwave, synthpop and everything in between.
