I’ve always been a big fan of Lugubrum, ever since the first time I heard their track “Mijn Koninkrijk Van Groen” on a tape-trading compilation in the late 90s.
Over the years I’ve spent countless hours listening to their music, seen a lot of their shows (aptly named “bizarre adventures” instead of “rituals”), gotten to know the guys sharing the occasional beer and carrot, and I’m proud to be their webmaster the past 20 years. My first tattoo even was a dwarf custom drawn by Midgaars, based on the ones from the artwork in the Winterstones album.
This is my version of “Mijn Koninkrijk Van Groen”.

PS Be sure to check their latest release “Plage Chômage”, the ideal playlist for your summer bbq!
A week before the official release, you can now stream the entire “vossenkuil” album exclusively on the Black Metal Promotion Youtube channel.
A few weeks ago I made a video with some friends for the new track “Beverdansen”. I know, walking in the forest at night with bottles of alcohol and background music is quite the black metal stereotype, but you know it’s fun, and it’s what we do.
In times where a lot of us are stuck inside, enjoy this virtual “vossenkuil” tour.
A few weeks ahead of the releasedate, here’s a first review of “vossenkuil” by Occultblackmetalzine:
“…When guitar solos and leads are utilized they are also done in a very melodic style along with one track also introducing spoken word parts onto the recording…”
Here’s “Nachtwandeling”, the first single from the upcoming album.
“vossenkuil” was recorded during the autumn of 2018. Mixed and mastered by Koenraad Foesters at Studio Jupiter. He also did “Kenoma”, the Sons Of A Wanted Man album that came out earlier this month, you should check it out.
Pre-orders for the release and merchandise are open at Bandcamp.
