Exorcistic doom metal from hard-hitting quartet

Turn off the sun! When Konvent plays we need complete darkness.

Their brand of slooooow and heavy doom metal sings of despair and hopelessness – delivered with an energy that will help you exorcise all your inner demons.

When the band first got together back in 2015, they played “Seven Nation Army” over and over until they felt ready to go hard and heavy. All four members were fans of guitar riffs, and they found a common joy in the repeating, hypnotizing riffs of doom.

It didn’t take long before the band attracted lots of attention, and they were invited to play at Roskilde Festival in 2019.

The year after the band released its debut album Puritan Masochism which only enhanced the hype surrounding this doom band. Not only in Denmark – they also won international acclaim in various reviews who simply loved Konvent’s sound full of down-tuned guitars, growls and an open invitation to nightfall.

Konvent has played lots of shows and won over lots of music fans who prefer things heavy and slow. Want a taste? Watch this live performance the band did for the industry festival Eurosonic.

Vocalist Rikke Emilie List has said that when she goes on stage, she doesn’t want to sound like a woman or a man – but like “a fucking monster”. Mission complete, Konvent, collectively, is a monstrous band.

Come hear Konvent unleash all your inner demons when they return to Roskilde Festival in 2022.
