Dutch Black Metal Entity LASTER Announces First Live Performance

Laster’s debut EP Wijsgeer & Narreman made a strong impression on me last year, as its hypnotic atmosphere drew me in. The Dutch black metal group has announced they will be performing live foe the first time ever at Musikbunker Aachen in Aachen, Germany. Support will come from Northward, Goatblood, and Morast. If you’re in the general vicinity and can appreciate sprawling atmospheric black metal I’d recommend checking out this show, and hopefully video will surface afterwards for those of us unable to attend. I’ll also be waiting to see if the band is working on new material, as these three songs have left me wanting even more.


Emerging from their self-imposed solitude, atmospheric black metal entity LASTER will travel from their Dutch homeland to Germany later this year for their first ever live performance.

Scheduled for Saturday, December 21st, LASTER’s live debut will take place at Musikbunker Aachen in Aachen, Germany. Support will come from NORTHWARD, GOATBLOOD and MORAST. For more info and updates, visit the Concert Event Page.

In 2012, LASTER released the three-track EP, Wijsgeer & Narreman on Dunkelheit Produktionen. Praised for its bleak, yet hypnotic and poetic delivery, the EP is currently available on CD, cassette and digital formats. Looping lamentation and genuine gloom brought to life by songs which leave the standard of DSBM far behind. Floating riffs, melancholic and full of grace, rolling drums and pressing lyrics tell stories about pain that was lived through and artistic musicianship. This music’s pathos aspirated by an energy standing up again and again to fade within monotonous doubt and to indulge in blind despair. LASTER (meaning libel) was founded and located in Utrecht, the Netherlands. The band consists of N. (NORTHWARD) and W. Damiaen (OMNINIHILIST, SEA OF TREES, WILLOOS, WHITE OAK). Wijsgeer & Narreman is recommended for fans of URFAUST and AUSTERE!

Wijsgeer & Narreman is available at www.dunkelheit.cc.
