VON Returns In 2013: European Rituals Begin
Posted on January 19, 2013
Doomstar Booking Agency in association with Von presents Ritual of The Black Mass European Summer Tour 2013! Preparations are underway and the time for VON to gore the streets of Europe begins this Summer.
Vonwill headline the Under The Black Sun Festival (Saturday) which takes place in Berlin, Germany between 4th-6th July 2013. For festival information visit this location . Order tickets here. Additional tour dates and further details to be revealed in the weeks ahead. Be sure to check online at www.RitualofTheBlackMass.com for the most current updates and tour exclusives.
Von will also be releasing more information on part one of their three-album "Dark Gods" Trilogy titled, Seven Billion Slaves. It is coming! Stay tuned.
Von’s two recordings, Satanic Blood and Blood Angel, were passed around the world as bootlegs, inspiring the Second Wave Norwegian sound that spawned thousands of bands over the last 25 years. After more than 20 years, the long overdue official album has finally revealed itself via Von Records. Von creator, Jason “Venien” Ventura, entered the Von Records studio — “The Pit” — in Litchfield Park, Arizona to record 19 classic tunes from the band’s early days. The end product, Satanic Blood, was produced by Venien, mixed by Andrew Ragin at Wall To Wall Recording Studios in Chicago, Illinois and mastered by John Gray at The Jungle Studios in Scottsdale, Arizona.
Ordering info available here.
Detailed About.com in a recap of a rare Von live ritual in Los Angeles last November: “The main draw began after midnight as Von, adorned in blood, strode across the stage. The crowd went nuts as Venien, drummer Anthony Mainiero (of The Atlas Moth), and guitarists Xaphan (of Kult Ov Azazel), Lord Giblete, and Hammer Of Dread launched their assault. With a deeply powerful sound not captured on the original Satanic Blood demo, the droning quality of Von’s music leapt to the forefront as the set wore on. Individual songs soon disappeared into a crescendo of droning cadence and chaos. Von simply did not let up without a discernible break as the set soon became one long song that lasted for well over an hour. The powerful, hypnotic quality of the music cannot be overstated, a quality that is apparent on the newly released re-recording Satanic Blood.”
Von are history. Crucial to the 2nd wave of black metal, they should (and will) always have a place in the pantheon of American metal. Time has moved on, and as we stand on the threshold of 2013 it’s impossible to listen to this record and not get a twinge of nostalgia for a time when black metal was truly off the radar. Whether you’re willing to let yourself steep in this nostalgia is key to enjoying this record. A time capsule from 1992 produced in 2012, Satanic Blood is a paradox. A record humming with the nascent energy of black metal in it’s earliest days, but one that is fundamentally out of a place at any point in time, Satanic Blood is a fascinating listen. Just not one that is particularly relevant 25 years later.” – Cvlt Nation
At a time when the ideas of ‘kvlt’ in black metal are slowly becoming further and further reduced to stylistic choices it’s fucking fantastic to see one of the most influential but ignored American black metal bands finally release a ‘proper’ album after 20 years of waiting. OK, so it may be re-recordings of early day’s demos, EPs etc, but as a raw, searing document of bleak but classic black metal from a band so significant they literally gave Watain their name, it deserves to be instrumental in bringing them to a wider audience. And by covering all grounds from mid-tempo dirges like ‘Chalice Of Blood’ to caustic walls of calcifying static like ‘Release’, they’ve got the tools to do it.” – The Quietus
Acid Deathtrip joins Doomstar Bookings
Posted on January 14, 2013
Acid Deathtrip hail from Horst, The Netherlands, to bring you the Blasphemous Boogie like none other can. Drawing influence from Sludge, Doom, Blues, down tuned Rock and Roll and good old Heavy Metal, their sexually intimidating cocktail of sleaze and dirt hits where it hurts.
With lyrics that borderline on complete and utter retardation. Drug-fuelled tales of madness, Pagan midgets and nudist goat-monks radiate through raw and clean vocals surrounded by riffs that seduce elephants in heat and drums that crush the very thickest of skulls, Acid Deathtrip is ready to roll up its sleeves and unzip it’s pants for a golden shower of power.
Not new to the game, these players have already earned their stripes in bands ranging from : Insult, Collision, HSML, Starve, Mangled, Bastards, Skullhog and Blind To Faith to name just a few.
For fans of : Alabama Thunderpussy, Entombed, Saint Vitus and Orange Goblin

Bloodshed Fest first names!
Posted on December 3, 2012
Dear grinders and moshers, We are proud to announce the first bands for Bloodshed fest 2013!
That's right, the mighty Nausea will fly over to destroy europe! This is pure grindcore and you can't get closer to the old Terrorizer / World Downfall. Fact is: About a third of the songs of Terrorizers': World Downfall were actually Nausea material, the previous band of vocalist Oscar Garcia. Nausea was and still is an active band and not a side prject of. They grind hard as hell and will rage on our stage! First time in europe ever!
Many of you have seen them popping up the last years at many shows and festival. Warfuck is THE grindcore power combo! Fast, violent and maniacs on the stage!
Evisorax was formed in the mid 2000's, Having defined their razor sharp hyper blast stop start grind and rounding it off with strategically placed groves that nod to the old school influences. Evisorax are excited eager to lay waste to Bloodshed 2013!
Buiten Gebruik (NL)
Punk crust and HC, the Netherlands have a rich and healthy scene. Buiten Gebruik knows the drill with members of: Fleas and Lice, Boycot, Ohlo de Gato, Sangre and more, they will crust it up!
This is just the beginning and 27 bands will follow! You won't be dissapointed!
Kots Op Kerst
Posted on November 15, 2012
Doomstar Bookings co-presents Kots op Kerst VII. 2nd day of Christmas, time for brutality at Little Devil. Mosh it up for baby Jesus!
Posted on November 8, 2012
It has been a while since we informed you on what’s going on with camp Doomstar, and with good reason because there have been many things going on. First of all we would like to look back at a few very successful tours that just finished. A little while back we had Vile on the road with Lacerated And Carbonized, good times for the death metal freaks out there. Soon after we had a nice and short tour for SSS, going to and coming from the highly successful and most probably the best Bloodshed Fest ever. Also starting at this point were Kill The Client and Feastem who hit the road together for 3 weeks, grinding the hell out of Europe. During this period a funeral doom tour with Worship and Faal also passed through Europe, depressing the underground just a bit more. All tours were very good, thanks to everyone involved in making this possible; the bands, the fans, the bookers/promoters, the venues, etcetera. We are honored to see the progress Doomstar Bookings still makes with all your help.
First of all we have a new website as you can see! The address is still the same, it’s just a new lay-out and design, courtesy of our friend Wouter of Wagemans Grafische Dienstverlening. Expect to see more frequent updates regarding bands, shows and tours!
We would also like to announce that Doomstar Bookings is no longer an office of just two people, but we have expanded our workforce with three new faces. Firstly we were joined by Ronny Kessels, the main man behind the highly successful RNR Festival and bass player for Citizens Patrol. He will expand our roster and tours more into the hardcore/punk area. Secondly we were approached by Dirk van der Klooster who books shows and festivals in the North of The Netherlands in venues like Iduna, Buze, Kade and works with punk bands like GBH, UK Subs, Vibrators, The Exploited, etcetera. He will expand our roster and tours more into the crust/punk area. Last but very certainly not least miss Xenia Sägesser, with whom we already worked in the past on the Gorgasm tour and who was a part of the Mountain of Death team in Switzerland also joined in, she will expand our roster more into the brutal death metal area. Three very welcome additions to our team with whom we will keep on working on a future filled with good tunes for all of Europe to enjoy!
In the meantime we’ve also come to an agreement with several bands in various genres for their European bookings. All of them are stated here below, by genre and with the agent working with them and will appear on the roster page of our website shortly.

Last show Heavy Lord
Posted on September 28, 2012
It is with great sorrow we have to inform you that our good friends of Heavy Lord have decided to call it quits. We thank them for all the good years and amazing shows and wish them all the best of luck in their future efforts. Here is the official statement of the band:
After 9 years, 4 albums and over 200 shows, Heavy Lord have decided to break up. The decision among the members is mutual, and there will be no pointing of fingers and no naming of names. Furthermore, the split will now enable each member to pursue his goals unhindered. The band would like to thank everyone who supported us throughout the years. On Saturday the 6th of October Heavy Lord will be performing for the last time in Rotterdam.
