Notes and Editorial Reviews

Trombonist Dan Blacksberg...has made a career out of reinterpreting Ashkenazic Jewish music in interesting ways. After broaching hardcore with Electric Simcha, Blacksberg recruited four other musicians and combined traditional wordless melodies with doom metal for a new project called Deveykus.

The band’s first track, “Wordless Ecstasy,” is a slow burn, built of trombone, electricity, and weighty, slow-motion beats. Moments of complexity flirt with the ear, building a deceptive drone. It’s a Zen k?an through a Jewish lens. - Tzadik
