I can imagine that people sometimes like to listen to droning sounds; fuck, there's a whole world of "new age" people doing nothing else. I can imagine that people with a preference for 'alternative' cd's with sounds of mating whales, will be susceptible to the sounds on De Berg van Verdoemenis. I can hardly see fans of old Vond or Aghast albums (but also Planet Aids or Bunkur fans) - possible target audiences - closing their eyes and emerging themselves in the mesmerizing sounds of this recording. I think it won't even hit a target in a group of stoned-out-of-their-minds hippies. The only nerve it hits in my body is the one that triggers the movement of my hand in any direction to turn off what my ears are trying hard not to register. To keep it short, I imagine two guys toying around in a teenage bedroom with a guitar, a keyboard, a tape recorder, and the ad hoc idea of "recording a demo", but with no clue of what to create... Shit, if I want droning I put on the comments of a sports channel for a while.

1: Could anyone offer a biography update 2004-2009 (or later)?
2: Is the assumption of the end of the band in 2009 correct?
