DOUBLE SPACE

DOUBLE SPACE is an Aarhus based band that distill the essence of sludge, doom, stoner and noise rock into their own crystal clear vision: Unmatched heavy epic groove rock. An utterly relentless onslaught of crushing power riffs and killer leads. Never looking back!

DOUBLE SPACE formed late 2003 around the recording of a handful of songs the two guitarists Mikko Mansikkala Jensen and Rasmus Rosenkilde Jensen had written together. Drummer Per Silkjær was initially brought in as a session drummer. Yet the DOUBLE SPACE universe instantly engulfed him. The heavyness, the curious guitar melodies and the persistent search for the ultimate in every aspect of the making of their music.

And even before these recordings were to be released and recieve high appraisal from Danish underground press, the first show was played supporting Electric Turn To Me and Lost Sounds. Over the years stages are shared with a ton of bands, including Unsane and Fuck The Facts, and a reputation as a mind blowing live act is established. Dreaded by headliners, loved by stoked audiences.

On paper the combination of two guitarists and a drummer may strike one as a bit odd, in terms of playing seriously low end based music. But as any member of a DOUBLE SPACE concert audience will testify: ”It does not get much more massive than this!”. And here you also find the reason why DOUBLE SPACE fans have dubbed the band’s backline Twin Towers. The sound of a colossal brick wall collapsing ontop of you!

Seemingly DOUBLE SPACE have everything going for them, yet they are followed by a dark shadow. Suicidal girlfriends and chaotic love lives, record deals with labels that fold, producers who drop off the face of the earth carrying entire DOUBLE SPACE recording sessions and the list goes on.

Everything from the smallest margin to the greater powers work against them on a bit too regular basis. The emotional havoc spills into the lyrical content, and the band discovers they can use this, as their own collective therepy session to overcome.

Another break is caught when Danish Metal Award nominees Rising step up and ask DOUBLE SPACE to support them on their 2010 European tour. A two track maxi 12”, mixed by Q (Danish indie rock darlings Figurines, Tiger Tunes, Beta Satan a.o.) - an avid DOUBLE SPACE fan - and mastered by Curved (London based Drum ’n’ Bass oriented mastering studio with extended low-end-from-vinyl-ratio expertise), is released by the band for the occation.

Immidiately upon the return from the tour, late March 2010, four new songs are tracked live with Jacob Bredahl (ex-Hatesphere, Last Mile, The Kandidate) by the helm at his Dead Rat Studio. ”There have never been so much low end in this studio!” he confesses at first. And then he proceeds to torture the band to deliver their all-time best.

The nearest future has been dedicated to opening for Ufomammut in September and playing at A Sceam In The Dark Festival in October, torture Bredahl until he delivers the mix of a life time, and not least promote the shit out of that 12”.
