About DDMG

DownriverDeadMenGo

Downriver Dead Men Go (DDMG) is a post prog band from Leiden, the Netherlands, and started in 2010 as a spin-off of the alternative rock band Caitlin. Mid 2015 the debut album Tides was released independently. The critically acclaimed album has a mesmerising, atmospheric, melancholic sound. Early 2016 DDMG signs a record deal with Freia Music for the worldwide distribution and promotion of Tides. DDMG is currently touring the Netherlands to promote their album. Additionally, they are working on new songs for their upcoming album that is due to be released mid 2017.

Reviews of Tides:

OOR: “Tides is a collection of stunning melodies. Languid, with sometimes an acceleration, dreamy, and highbrowed in the positive sense of the word.”

Progradar: “If you know of David Lynch, director of ‘Blue Velvet’, ‘Mulholland Drive’ and ‘Twin Peaks’, this album could have sound tracked any of these. If like me you are partial to  a bout of emotionally dark, slow rock when the fancy takes, then I urge you to buy this.”

ZINE: “Tides van Downriver Dead Men Go is the soundtrack for an imagenary film.”

Background Magazine: “It's alternative slow rock/post rock music with long stretching musical themes. I do love the atmosphere that surrounds the album. It's dark, it's somewhat depressing as well, but very beautiful.”

Progwereld: “Enjoying the most beautiful sounds, as if Ennio Morricone has joined a post rock band. With so much tristesse you just close your eyes and float along a warm undertow of melancholia.”

Kindamuzik: “Countless rainy autumn mornings must have passed to attain such intense, dreary sound. With this band the Dutch ‘polder’ has gained a splendid slow core band.”
