Ascend To Nothing reviews

DN - Ascend To Nothing

“An endless variation of a steady rhythm, a massive wave of saxophone sounds and curious mixture of electronic sounds”
Vital Weekly

“Met ‘Ascend To Nothing’ brengen Dead Neanderthals en Drvg Cvltvre onder de noemer Krishna van begin tot eind een fascinerende luistertrip: zwaar aangezet, uitdagend, geestverruimend en stemming verhogend”
Opduvel

“IT’S UFO JAZZ”
The Needle Drop

“the relentlessly massed power drone of Ascend to Nothing might also aspire to something more, an extroverted, aggregate minimalism that shuts off your brain to massage the black bile out of it”
Igloo Magazine

“a massive psychedelic and hypnotic trip that you definitely should try out”
Merchants Of Air

“Een echte samenwerking, dit Krishna, dat een nieuw hoofdstuk toevoegt aan de al indrukwekkende catalogus van de Nijmegenaars”
Gonzo (circus) #135

2015, you’re simply the best

DN overzicht 2015After finishing the last show of 2015 w/ GALG at the Onderbroek we realized how exceptionally good 2015 was for us.

What could possibly top a Spanish/Portuguese tour with our buddies from Orthodox as a start of the year? If that wasn’t enough, we just did it again in the UK in September. It was a blast to tour with these guys and you should definitely pick up their new album. 100% KILLER!

Another highlight was to team up with Sten Ove Toft for a limited 7″ lathe cut for the always brilliant Utech Records. Fortunately for us, this also led to two really great shows: one at UTECH RECORDS MUSIC FESTIVAL III all the way in Milwaukee. The other was a bit closer to home, namely the excellent INCUBATE FESTIVAL.

And now we’re touching the topic of collaboration: Sten wasn’t the only one we’ve had the pleasure of working with. What to think of the live set we did with experimental doom-techno guru DRVG CVLTVRE at the Valkhof Festival this year (see video below)?

Or Belgian guitar-wizard DIRK SERRIES, who appeared on two records alongside us this year: SLUIMER (also with Martina Verhoeven on bass) and ENDLESS VOIDS (also with Rutger Zuydervelt, Colin Webster, Peter Johan Nyland, Thomas Ekelund and Steven Vinkenoog).

In some cases, the collaboration was about something bigger than just the music we play. Like with the New Wave of Dutch Heavy Jazz compilation, which hopefully showed what can happen when 4 like-minded bands are working together. Or the And Suddenly Everything, Absolutely Everything, Was There compilation that was put together by Chris Elmore to financially support the Utech family after losing Kim Utech to breast cancer. The compilation is still available and donations are still regularly made to the Utech Family.

All these gigs and releases would almost make you forget that Czech-based DIY label Obsedante released the Dietary Restrictions tape, which is a live recording of the gig we did with Nick Millevoi in Berlin during our 2013-tour. Or that PRIME saw a re-release on both CD and tape by Gaffer Records and Smithsfoodgroup DIY, respectively.

Despite all these collaborative efforts, Dead Neanderthals is still a duo in its core and our Worship The Sun album is the testament of that. We were honored to work with Relative Pitch Records on this and we hope you enjoy the album as much as we do.

We want to take this opportunity to thank everyone who came out to see us, every band we shared the stage with, every person who bought a t-shirt, patch, CD, cassette or LP. Every reviewer, interviewer and fan who helped to spread the putrid gospel of Dead Neanderthals. Thanks to all the promoters who booked us to play at their venue, supported us by promoting the gig and let us crash at their place. We couldn’t have done it without you!

Last but certainly not least: a big thank you to Marlon Wolterink and his White Noise Studio. Marlon always makes sure that our records sound excellent (when he records them) or sound less bad (when we record ourselves).

See you in 2016!
Dead Neanderthals
