FIMBULVETR - March 25th Mar. 22nd, 2011 @ 12:28 pm

Fimbulvetr is unique in Scotland, and possibly the rest of the UK, in that we play the very best music from the wide spectrum of ambient, drone, electronica, noise, doom, folk, post-rock and anything that's dark & down-tempo. We're always looking for new music to play so let us know if you've heard anything exciting or you're making this kind of music yourself.

We're heading rapidly to Novembulvetr so why not head a long and celebrate the slow, wind-blown death of the year with some dark, down-tempo sounds in our dingy basement!

We've been quiet for too long.



DJs playing the best in goth, industrial, noise, EBM, electronica, darkwave, futurepop, and any other bizarre sub-genre we can find.

We've got an event on Facebook for it too. It's going to be loud.

» Ascension this Saturday at The Banshee Labyrinth
Ascension is moving!

We have decided enough is enough at Studio 24 and are delighted to announce we will be re-locating to The Banshee Labyrinth on Niddry Street.

This will allow us to create two seperate dancefloor areas enabling people to enjoy their specific genres more, while still being able to dip into something else if they so choose.
i.e. Electro/Industrial/EBM/Noise in one area and Goth/Darkwave/Altenative 80's in the other.
The energy and vibe that was created in the 'Cave dancefloor' at the Angelspit aftershow party convinced us that it can work as a venue for us. I'm sure all those who have been to The Banshee Labyrinth would agree that the atmosphere and architecture is more in keeping with an Alternative club as well. We will be relaying out a couple of the rooms slightly to maximise space and depending on how the club night goes we can expand into other rooms in future if need be.
As it stands we will have two seperate dancefloor areas, as well as the cellar bar and wide corridor allowing people to socialise a bit more. Seating can be found in all four areas.

We hope you support us in this move and it will meet your musical needs more than we may have been able to provide in a single room venue before.
This will also allow us to bring in guest DJs on a regular basis.

We will also be reducing our entrance fee to £4

Launch night is Saturday July 10th

Doors are 10PM - 3AM
