Metalrage recommends: Eindhoven Rock City - Isis, Peter Pan Speedrock, Blood Duster, RompepropFrom time to time, we as Metalrage feel obliged to recommend some of the amazing shows that take place in Holland almost every day. This time we take the opportunity to highlight two amazing events in the rock capitol of The Netherlands: Eindhoven Rock City!
First of all but second in line, we'd like to point out to you the only Dutch club show of the U.S. postcore/sludge giants of ISIS. In 2008 they already headlined the Friday of the prestigious Roadburn festival, only to return later the same year and rock out again at Tivoli de Helling in Utrecht. One of the leaders of the postcore genre, they're a must-see for every fan of slow, heavy and depressing music. Support on this show will come from the space/noise/industrial duo Destructo Swarmbots. The show takes place at the renowned Effenaar venue on July the 6th, make sure to be there!

The other show we'd like to promote is a not so slow one. Set up by the Dutch based Doomstar Bookings, comes a rather unusual package. Unusual for the ignorant that is, for teaming up Peter Pan Speedrock, Blood Duster and Rompeprop is like asking for mayhem. First up are the Dutch goregrinders of Rompeprop, who are considered an almost legendary act around the globe. In the underground of course. Following in their footstep are the Australian rock 'n' grind band Blood Duster. These guys make the bridge between grindcore and rock 'n' roll with their catchy gory music about dicks and pussies. Then finishing it off is the best rock trio in all of Holland: Peter Pan Speedrock. Time to take the beer drinking up a few notches and get yourself a delirium! This show takes place at the world famous Dynamo club in Eindhoven on July the 4th, make sure to be there if you want to face one of your worst hangovers ever!
