Swamp Machine (NL):
Psychedelic Stonerrock/Doom from The Netherlands
Formed in the end of 2010 by Stonerrockers Mehidah Endenburg (guitars) en Koen van Soelen (bassguitar, vocals) in the most southern regions of The Netherlands. The swamps near their rehearsal studio were the inspiration for their sludgy, 70’s style doom-stonerrock band Swamp Machine. Drummer Rick Schuitemaker quickly joined forces. This three-headed psychedelic 70’s stonerdoom monster will definitly drag you down… Deeper in the Swamp!
