Saturday 9 December Psychedelic Rock

9 Dec

Saturday 9 December
A super Psychedelic rock night!
Doors open 22:00 and first band starts 22:30!

An Evening With Knives : For those of you who want to categorize, this band from Eindhoven would fall somewhere between post-metal, post-rock and psychedelic stoner doom. They produce a layered and energetic sound with unexpected turns. No matter what, they always keep it dark, heavy and captivating.

MAUDLIN : According to themselves, these Belgians play very loud, raw & psychedelic rock. Their moving melodies carry you over a sea of sound and emotion. You’re flooded by rough and powerful riffs with a sludgy and sometimes doomy vibe, alternated by delicate, hypnotizing guitars and deep vocals that’ll make you feel like you’re drowning. Maudlin’s sound is deafening and intense, while at the same time surprisingly fragile.

Saturday 16 december Cosmute & Searching For Relief

16 Dec

“Our LAST gig in 2017! A great night to come shake off the frustrations of this year and gain some energy to survive Christmas!”
– The Orkz Bar Programmers

Doors open : 22:00 First band: 22:30 !!

Cosmute (Wolvega, The Netherlands):
Lords of Metal: “This is the first…’ on which post-hardcore gets mashed together with quite a lot of progressive rock and math metal influences. Deftones and The Mars Volta come to mind, though with a twist. Drums sound impressive and the vocals carry a great atmosphere that I think really hits the nail on the head in terms of what the band tries to achieve.”

Come check them out rockin’ the Orkz Bar!!

Searching For Relief (Utrecht, The Netherlands): Noisy post hardcore/punk rock. With loud guitars, freaky vocals and a hardcore punk energy – although their sound has a melodic and dynamic feel.

The ORKZ-bar is part of the ORKZ, a legalised squat in the south of Groningen. Located in the old kitchens of the former Roman-Catholic hospital, the bar is run by volunteers, and usually open from 22:00 till late (except mondays and wednesdays).


The ORKZ-bar is not available for rent; try the RKZbios instead.
