What a line-up! And what a night! Extreme music at its best.

On the 3rd of January, long-haired stoners gathered at Kavka, Antwerp to see Karma To Burn play!

“Hey dude, how are you doing?”
– “WHAT?!”
“Err… HOW YOU DOIN’?!”
– ” CAN’T HEAR A THING MAN, I WENT TO SEE CONAN TWO WEEKS AGO AND IT WAS AWESOME!”

Interviews

Nick DiSalvo of Elder about their music: “Maybe it’s just the way I see it, but I feel the music world is still very compartmentalized. You can’t really go out and say “I’m in a rock band””

Since their latest album ‘Black Heaven’ sounds a lot different than the music they made before that, we had some burning questions for Earthless!
