It is a grey, rainy, and desolate day in Copenhagen today – and there is nothing better suited to the band we are presenting. The deep and dreary Finnish mourners PROFETUS will be moving us all with their funerary art at the final Heavy Days rites!
In 2006 under heavy snow in Tampere, Finland, Funeral Doom group Profetus formed to leave their own traditionally rooted, fresh mark on the soil beneath.
As heirs to early originators of the style such as Skepticism and Thergothon, they seek to drag the decrepit coffin further towards the modern days of misery – without shedding a drop of royal blood into the dust below.
Digging deep into the classic genre atmosphere of the 90`s, Profetus express hopeless, solitary moods and the bleak poetry of Scandinavian down-heartedness, projected against the scenery of it`s unique, raw and godless nature. A pace slow and solemn as the treads of a gravediggers boot, their sound is both crushingly heavy yet eerie and hauntingly beautiful, a truly cinematic funeral procession.
Solemn, majestic organ passages throughout create a feeling of comfort within the discomfort of deep misery. Profetus are the perfect accompaniment to lead HDDT into the mists of the realm of the dead.
Today we regress from the jovial air that most of our announcements possess…
We must unfortunately inform you all that we have had a cancellation for HDDT;
WORM OUROBOROS will no longer be performing at the festival.
The band have cancelled their European tour and therefor will no longer be able to play.
They have released a statement for us and Roadburn to pass on to you –
“It is with regret that we must cancel our plans to tour Europe with Bell Witch this spring. Due to personal extenuating circumstances, the trip has become infeasible at this time. Our sincerest apologies to bookers, bands, and others who have been working with us to make this trip happen. And especially to the gracious and talented gentlemen of Bell Witch who invited us to join them.”
We apologize to everyone who were looking forward to seeing them play at the final edition of Heavy Days in Doom Town!
Look out for the replacement announcement later today
The 4-day tickets are sold out! Thanks so much for all the support!
For the rest of you who hesitated… Don´t despair! We have plenty of 3-day tickets and Heavy Package II left for the main event at Ungdomshuset (Friday-Saturday-Sunday).

Here is the album cover to the new Bell Witch album “Four Phantoms” painted by the mighty Paolo Girardi. This painting wholly reflects the vibe and feeling of “Four Phantoms”; mournful devastating soul crushing beauty. Release date late April.
Look out for the announcement of the forthcoming European tour “Four Phantoms” from April 9th – May 9th incl. performances at Roadburn and Heavy Days In Doomtown festival. For booking please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
Having been off your radar for a while, we are back, and we have something to present to you today that we are REALLY excited about!!
You may have seen their name popping up on show flyers across Europe around the dates of HDDT, and day dreamed to yourself about the possibility of an appearance at the festival…. Well, we are here to make those dreams reality!
The amazing, Amerijuanicans BONGZILLA will have their first ever European festival performance at Heavy Days!!!!!
After a hiatus, these reefer-cloaked, legalization advocates are here to sow the seeds of their trademark strain of psychedelic sludge on European soil. Cultivating an extremely thick and heavy harvest of sound, BONGZILLA have fertilized their unique style tenfold over time, and the result of their bumper-crop harvest speaks for itself.
Musically, BONGZILLA leave nothing to be desired – perfectly blending elements of psych, sludge and stoner into a massive bong-ripping force. The harsh and tortured vocals are met with smokey tripped-out passages of mellowed, experimental jamming amongst the crushing blows of heaviness, with a flawless ebb and flow of intensity. To quote, “With a Sabbath-on-downer encrusted sound that blends billowing rock, clenched-teeth blues, and an underground punk attitude, BONGZILLA fire up thunderous mega-rock with a pronounced emphasis on the “big riff”… simultaneously aggressive and mellow, with thunderous percussion, smoke-seared vocals and infectious, fuzzed-out riffs baked to perfection” We couldn’t agree more, and it is an honor to have them performing for you.
Grab your stash, pack a bowl, and let BONGZILLA guide you in pledging allegiance to the mighty Mary Jane when they grace the main stage on Saturday, at the doomsday edition of HDDT!
