‘The Depths’ available for pre-order!

Good news! We have a new album coming up called ‘The Depths’. The album was recorded in a 100 meter, full concrete tunnel in our hometown Nijmegen with Otto and René each on one end of the tunnel.

Watch the gorgeous short documentary by Dick van Aalst to get a better idea on how we recorded this album.

Molar Wrench reviews

“Simply put–if you’re a free jazz fan that hasn’t heard Molar Wrench, you’re fucking up”
Heavy Blog Is Heavy

“ugly beautiful”
The Quietus

“With its intelligent abstraction this collaboration is the nearest to ‘Trout Mask Replica’ this generation is gonna get…Love it!”
Dayz Of Purple And Orange

“You may feel the need to stock up with antibiotics and painkillers before giving this unearthly evil crew a listen…”
A Jazz Noise

“Veel, veel heftiger en efficiënter dan de flauwe boel die dezer dagen ook al het ‘noiserock’-label opgekleefd krijgt”
Enola

“sounds like a medieval forge where the workers are doing frantic overtime”
Ears For Eyes

“This is a stunning, and sometimes sinister, collaboration which brings together the experimental blast of the UK’s Sly & The Family Drone and the beyond border free jazz of Dead Neanderthals”
Circuit Sweet

“these two crews lock together like the pieces of a dank Lego sculpture”
We Need No Swords

“a melange of clamorous, ultra-hyped parping horns, sonorous lowed drone and is dominated by truly frenzied, cacophonous bent. Circuits fizz and hum while the percussion thrashes and crashes arrhythmically, throwing the listener around with reckless abandon a rollercoaster of tempestuous sonic mania”
Aural Aggravation

“cataclysmic, cacophonic, and utterly, mind-bendingly brilliant”
One of the best albums of the first half of 2017 according to the The Quietus

Molar Wrench is OUT NOW on Hominid Sounds.
Buy the album on our Bandcamp.

Craters reviews

“Dead Neanderthals cuts to the very bone on the chilling beauty of Craters”
Beach Sloth

“Om te luisteren en te herbeluisteren tot in de eeuwigheid”
Luminous Dash

“This album claws, scratches, screeches and gnaws, all in perfect Dead Neanderthals tradition”
Merchants Of Air

“Een ideale soundtrack voor wie langzaam de waanzin op wil zoeken”
Amped Up

“Craters is een nieuwe stap in de aanhoudende vernieuwing, evolutie en zoektocht van het duo Dead Neanderthals dat blijft verbazen met indrukwekkende platen”
Gonzo (circus) #138

“Hun muziek zal niet enkel trommelvliezen doen barsten, de drones doorboren bovendien je hart en laten je verweesd achter”
Snoozecontrol

“Die gelaagdheid maakt dat iedere nieuwe luisterbeurt als een nieuwe belevenis kan worden ervaren. Juist dat maakt Craters zo prachtig”
Opduvel

“The time between Craters‘ opening and drawing down is more a matter of transition and transformation than an easy release to satisfy any demand for closure”
Freq

“Het is muziek vol sirenes en onderwaterexplosies, met brommende frequenties en pikzwarte drones, met onheilspellende doom tussen noise en akoesmatisch experiment”
Enola

“Däremot makalöst fascinerande och snudd på unikt”
Hymn

“an intense and protracted assault”
Invicta Magazine

“één lange dreigende trip”
Never Mind The Hype

Craters is OUT NOW on Consouling Sounds.

Dolphin reviews

dolphin_def

“Free-jazz for the intentional collapsing of ear drums. Two people, infinite fire. Light the fuse”
Ears For Eyes

“Einen gestrandeten Delphin mit Jazz zu Püree zu prügeln, dauert exakt elf Minuten und fünfunddreißig Sekunden”
Der Ohlsen

Dolphin is OUT NOW as a free digital download on our Bandcamp.

Live At Roadburn 2016 reviews

Roadburn Tape

“die irrsinnigste halbe Stunde Roadburn, die ich bisher erlebt habe”
Der Ohlsen

 

“Formidabel”
Opduvel

“Buiten de lijntjes kleuren, opvallen en nog ijzersterk uit de hoek komen ook”
Luminous Dash

“Kokke is particularly relentless with the discordant wailing he squeezes out of his horn while the drum barrage pays particular homage to ‘60s underground jazz”
Terrorizer #278
