Usually we announce new confirmations on Thursday, but because it’s World Goth Day we’re sharing some new confirmations for Incubate ’12 today. We reached a total of 95 confirmed artist with these four new additions:
We are very proud to present the exclusive performance by the legendary English goth rock band Fields of the Nephilim. By incorporating elements from heavy metal and Carl McCoy’s trademark growled vocals they have been setting the standard in the gothic scene since 1984. They haven’t performed in the Netherlands since 1988! For World Goth Day (today!), the band has been awarded with ‘Best 90′s goth band’ and ‘Best 2000′s goth band’ of 2012. For an interview with Carl McCoy, head over to thequietus.com.
Friday, 14 September - Gothic rock, eighties, rock noir
Yes, we managed to get the rarely performing Darkwood to play Incubate 2012! Darkwood is the neofolk unity of many different elements. From traditional themes and acoustic instruments with experimental soundscapes and samples and mixing English and German lyrics. They only performed live 16 times and their last performance was in 2007, which makes this occasion extra special.
Friday, 14 September - Neofolk, dark folk, apocalyptic folk
Renowned extreme noise act Consumer Electronics will definitely make some ears bleed during Incubate. Vast walls of noise are coming your way with power electronics interspersed with industrial sound. Walls that will vaporize every eardrum that comes unprepared.
Saturday, 15 September - Noise, industrial, power electronics
The collective Drum Eyes led by Shigeru Ishihara aka DJ Scotch Egg, notorious from his Game Boy act. With this collective he and his fellow musicians explore different facets of electronic music. As you can see from the numerous of different genre-tags used, this band is mixing more elements than your average blender.
Date TBA – Drone, kraut, electronic, post-rock, dub, psychedelic
