Reviews of 'Albino de Congo'.

- 22nd April 2008 -

- 10th November 2007 -

Press statement by Midgaars: 2007 has been a year of trial and setback for Lugubrum, since the release of ‘de ware hond’ every member of the band has suffered from one physical breakdown to the next, resulting in treatment, amputation, medication and a temporary or even permanent alcohol prohibition! Adding the loss of our headquarters and desertions from the ranks, Lugubrum’s continuation was hanging by a thread...

However, like a dung beetle seeing its precious ball of manure rolling down the mountainside, we went all the way back down to retrieve our treasure and start again, against all odds.

The old guard (Barditus, Midgaars and Svein) injected young blood into the worn veins in the shape of Noctiz (Gotmoor, Paragon Impure, Dead Inside) who will be handling the bass from now on. This line up will perform live for the first time at the final Waking the Dead Festival in Arnhem (NL) on 22/12/07 and in january they will record the new Lugubrum album ‘albino de Congo’.

Old Grey Hair’s schedule has consequently been delayed, releases will continue in 2008, when and in which order will be announced later on.

Untill then; MEDICATE US OR DIE!!!

LUGUBRUM records a 3rd session for 'De Ware Hond' on tape

- 7th June 2006 -

Lugubrum zoekt vaste bassist

vereisten: vertrouwd zijn met de Lugubrum discografie (van buiten kennen hoeft dus niet) / filosofie, enige technische vaardigheid (niet volledig afhankelijk zijn van partituur) en naast metal handig zijn in meerdere muzikale stijlen…
en bas spelen, geen panfluit…

repetities vinden elke zondag plaats in het Gentse, evenals de audities

let wel: we zoeken iemand die vast lid van de groep wil worden, m.a.w. iemand die zich in het eeuwige goudbruine licht wil wentelen, maar tevens de beschimpingen en minachting van alle levende wezens kan dragen…

geen kleuters a.u.b

dwergen hebben een aanzienlijke voorsprong op andere supplicanten

geïnteresseerden kunnen contact opnemen met

Lugubrum's 'Heilige Dwazen' LP out now on Old Grey Hair Records!

- 15th March 2006 -

Last month, Lugubrum moved out to a cabin in the Ardennes and recorded the majority of their 9th work, entitled 'DE WARE HOND' ; no overdubs or special effects, but live, trancelike sessions featuring the band on highest levels of possession, haunted by ancient spirits... A sequel to 'Heilige Dwazen' only in the philosophical sense, the music takes yet another turn into the unexpected... due for release on Old Grey Hair Records in early '07.

Out next month on OGH: 'Heilige Dwazen' LP.
