Menhir (NL) + Black box Red (NL)
Menhir delivers rockhard stonerriffs blended with southern rock vibes against a stone wall of fuzz. With two bassplayers and one drummer, expect mega-heavy stoner-riffs, bottom feeder basslines and primal grunts.
Around the corner of Queens Of The Stone Age and next to the village of Asterix live the three-piece that is Menhir. It's a well-picked name for a band that is often described to be 'as solid as a rock'. Adjectives like 'heavy, big-ass and overwhelming' are also often used. And it's no wonder, the three lads from Groningen are specialised in testing the ground work of houses and buildings alike, thanks to the use of two bass players and one drummer. Formed in 2012 they play a brutal mix of southern and stoner rock.
Black box Red
"This is one boy/girl duo who aren't dealing in cute and cuddly lo-fi. Fast, furious, and possessing more attitude in their smudged eyeliner than should be legal."
BlackboxRed sparks with energy. While Eva fights a fierce battle with her guitar, Stefan's propelling drums spiral them out of control, resulting in an awe-inspiring spectacle. Make no mistakes; this is one loud, seductive, and danceable Dutch duo.
Genuine rawness combined with bits of grunge, garage, blues and electro, topped with the out-bursting energy of a well-shaken soda can. Inspired by the likes of The Dead Weather, Crystal Castles and The Joy Formidable you get the idea of what these two are getting at.
