An ecstatic trip thru the world of Hasidic nigunim as seen through the intense lens of Doom Metal. Inspired by bands such as Earth, and Sunn O))), the music on this album presents classic Spiritual Melodies out of the Hasidic tradition in re-composed and re-arranged versions aimed at a heavy rock sound. This is music that blends the spiritual fire of Hasidic melodies with Albert Ayler and Dark Metal.

Deveykus

DEVEYKUS is the newest of trombonist Dan Blacksberg’s re-imaginings of traditional Ashkenazic Jewish Music, and perhaps his most powerful to date. The mastermind behind Electric Simcha, a band that turbo-charged classic Hasidic melodies of celebration with the speed and sound of hardcore punk rock, Blacksberg delves into the spiritual side of Hasidic nigunim (wordless melodies) […]

DEVEYKUS is the newest of trombonist Dan Blacksberg’s re-imaginings of traditional Ashkenazic Jewish Music, and perhaps his most powerful to date. The mastermind behind Electric Simcha, a band that turbo-charged classic Hasidic melodies of celebration with the speed and sound of hardcore punk rock, Blacksberg delves into the spiritual side of Hasidic nigunim (wordless melodies) in order to draw out another new sound, this time inspired by Doom bands like Earth, and Sunn O))), from this well-worn tradition.

In 2012, Blacksberg brought together 4 other musicians whose work spans experimental rock, metal, and Jewish music to form the band that would execute this new sound, Deveykus. Meaning “To cleave” to god and referring to both an ecstatic, trance-like state brought on by the singing of nigunim, and the name of the style of nign meant to bring on that state, Deveykus is a new band that brings the sounds of Jewish music fully into the world of experimental doom metal.

Deveykus’ debut album, Pillar Without Mercy, was released by Tzadik Records on June 18, 2013.

Deveykus - Wordless Ecstacy

Eskia – From Below

“From Below” is an exercise in lo-fi, home-recorded black metal. Eli began the recording process by improvising all the drum tracks in his basement. Then, almost as spontaneously, he wrote and improvised guitar & bass tracks to fit the drums, recording onto his laptop as he went. Lastly, he improvised vocals over the completed music. […]
