TTD20 and TTD21

We’ve got our hands full for the coming months and these are the first two events we are ready to disclose.

We are very happy to be able to announce that tickets can now be reserved for TTD20 at N.K. in Berlin on April 24th. So make sure to secure your ticket now by sending a mail to worshipthedram@tastethedoom.com with “TTD20″ in the subject line. Price is €30 and pick-up details will follow. The tasting begins at 21.00 hrs SHARP!

Furthermore we are equally happy that we’ll make TTD21 at Heavy Days in Doom Town on May 2nd in Copenhagen. Personally we’re looking very much forward to this musical highlight of the year and we can only urge you to join us at either the festival or the tasting (you do not need festival tickets to partake in the tasting). TTD21 will be held in Nordvest Bibliotek & Kulturhus and you can reserve your ticket by sending a mail to worshipthedram@tastethedoom.com with “TTD21″ in the subject line.  But be really fast as half the tickets are already gone. Price is 250 Dkk and pick-up details will follow. The tasting begins at 16.00 hrs SHARP!

To encourage you to partake in the upcoming event(s) we finally managed to post the line-up and playlist from the previous TTD number 19.  As we struggle to find the best whisky (that we’re convinced or hope you’ve never thought of or heard about before) in order to make as diverse and challenging tastings (yes. plural. again.) as possible ( in the very foreseeable future we might add) we hope you’ll find inspiration from the list below while passing time until TTD20 and beyond…

The “Spring Is Coming” Edition:

+ good whisky + evil music + comfy chairs + dark bar +

This time the slow-deep-complex evil music in chatting-friendly volume is selected by Slowlands co-founder Lars Lundehave Hansen and focuses a bit more on the riff and less on the oscillator than with our in-house selections.

SLOWLANDS Berlin | Whisky Club | Fri 6th Feb Update

A quick heads-up about tonight’s Slowlands for those of you strong enough to not be on facebook…

Booze news:
Big changes in the menu. We kicked (or ran out of or transferred to our private collection) 5 whiskys from the menu from last time. But added 7 new ones: a smooth Bushmills 16yo to turn on, single malts by Clynelish, Linkwood and Scapa to tune in and the Talisker Dark Storm and Classic of Islay to drop out. And there’s good news for the seawater-from-an-ashtray junkies: the CELP is back.

Btw, we are running very low on the Corsair Triple Smoked American SIngle Malt and the Faultine Straight Bourbon and we won’t restock them simply because they are not available in Europe. So this might be the last time they are on the menu.

Equally important to us – although often neglected when promoting upcoming events – is the music selection. It’s this time again put together by our own Slowlands Music Dept. and is as always a genre-defying combination of music of different styles which are the sonic equivalent to excellent whisk(e). At least to us. It includes the following artists: Black Lung & Xingu Hill, Bolder, Bosse-De-Nage, Cabaret Voltaire, Carter Tutti, Cathedral, Chris Haas & Beate Bartel, Christoph de Babalon, Cult Of Luna, Cut Hands, King Dude, Lento, Lucio Capece & Mika Vainio, Mace., Manorexia, Manta Ray, Marc & the Mambas, Marc Almond, Mark Lanegan, Megaton Leviathan, Mesak, Michael Gordon, Michael Rother, Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, rashad becker, Throbbing Gristle, 30,000 Monkies.

Looking forward to seeing you tonight.

TTD19 @ N.K. (Berlin) 24/01/15

We know that today is a sad day for many people, unless of course you love your job, in which case today is indeed a truly happy day. But however the case we’re just about to make your day significantly better with the following announcement: (ahem) Hear ye, hear ye – we cordially invite you to take part in the first Taste The Doom of 2015! We know we’ve been away for far too long and we wholeheartedly apologize for that and it will never happen again (although that is actually not a promise).
