In june 2014, 3friends hanging out, drinking, smoking and laughing. They were already in a band, but didn't feel like they were making the music they really wanted.
So they discussed what kind of music they should make. Many bands came up their minds: Black Sabbath, Electric Wizard, Sleep, Gorilla Monsoon, Fu Manchu, Kyuss and many more. So a month later they decided to jam with eachother just for fun.
July 2014 was the beginning of Sunburn and a few hours of jamming resulted in their first two songs, heavy and groovy.
Between these boundaries only, Sunburn creates their music. Lyrics are inspired from the depths of the heart, the weird spots in the brain, or just everyday life.
On stage, these 3 fine young gentlemen transform into trashing beasts of rock 'n roll. You should witness these monstrous gentlemen live!
The three members of this band are all originally from a specific eastern part in the Netherlands, “as east as you can go” as some people refer to it. This part of the country called: “The corner” is known for its agriculture and simple way of living. It was in this setting that these musicians came to know rock-’n-roll, blues, hardrock and heavy metal and picked up there instruments at young age.
After playing in many bands and releasing albums they found each other and started to play an explosive mix of rock, metal and blues. To some people not the obvious combination but for DIGGETH a way of life: Influenced by Metallica, AC/DC, Johnny Cash, Lynyrd Skyryrd and Down they started to conquer The Low Countries, they shared the stage with the likes of Michael Schenker, Exodus, Sacred Reich, Slayer, Megadeth, The Texas Hippie Coalition and Peter Pan Speedrock.
Over the years they played a great number of shows in support of their critical acclaimed debut single ‘One more Yesterday’ (2005) and their fulllength album ‘21st Century Nomad’(2009)
For their latest offering, the album ‘Kings of the underworld’ the band decided to raise the bar once again: They created their own state-of-the-art recording environment (Studio Casagrande) and worked on the songs for a longer period of time. Their goal was to combine the rawness of the live performance with a subtle seventies groove and feel in terms of performance and sound.
The result is an album that has a ‘life’ feel but also a profound deepness to it. The use of vocal harmonies, intricate rhythms, acoustic guitars, percussion and organ in some sections adds to the richness of the songs.
