“Dead Neanderthals cuts to the very bone on the chilling beauty of Craters”
“Om te luisteren en te herbeluisteren tot in de eeuwigheid”
“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”
“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”
“Die gelaagdheid maakt dat iedere nieuwe luisterbeurt als een nieuwe belevenis kan worden ervaren. Juist dat maakt Craters zo prachtig”
“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”
“Het is muziek vol sirenes en onderwaterexplosies, met brommende frequenties en pikzwarte drones, met onheilspellende doom tussen noise en akoesmatisch experiment”
“Däremot makalöst fascinerande och snudd på unikt”
“an intense and protracted assault”
“één lange dreigende trip”
Never Mind The Hype

Our intense Roadburn-set will be released October 3rd on cassette by Roadburn Records. The amazing artwork was done by the talented Loulou & Tummie.
It feels good to do this as we were very happy with the performance and the atmosphere at the Cul de Sac that night. Did you miss it or do you want to re-live the experience? No problem, as you can stream / pre-order the whole thing right away. Just click here or press play down below. Enjoy!
KRISHNA, the ongoing collaboration between experimental techno producer Drvg Cvltvre and us, is alive and kicking. Our debut album ‘Ascend To Nothing’ is out now on the great Silken Tofu label.
Listen to the whole album right away by clicking here or stream it down below.
After 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!
