Before the turn of the millenium bands like 13eaver, 7Zuma7 and 35007 planted a seed in the low lands which – with the help of the prestige surrounding Roadburn Festival – flourished into a thriving underground scene that has been gaining momentum ever since. Despite it’s obvious lack of deserts, epic landscapes and other typical impressions of the heavy rock scenes The Netherlands has produced serious sonic soundscapes that raise the altitude within (think Sungrazer/Mirador, The Machine/Solar Corona) and make you space out in the vastness of it all (Monomyth/Monomyth). With the surge of upcoming heavy acts in the underground scene of the last few years it’s time to sit back and enjoy the finest selection of Dutch fuzz!
