Deveykus: Hasidic Doom Metal

Deveykus debut their album: Pillar Without Mercy at Johnny Brenda’s

Deveykus is Trombonist Dan Blacksberg’s latest brainchild, blending traditional Ashkenazic Jewish Music with Doom Metal.

The idea was conceived by Blacksberg in 2012; he decided to collaborate with musicians whose backgrounds spanned experimental rock, metal, Jazz and Jewish music to form the band.

Deveykus is:

Nick Millevoi, Guitar
Yoshie Fruchter, Guitar
Johnny DeBlase, Bass
Eli Litwin, Drums
and
Dan Blacksberg, Trumbone

In Hebrew, Deveykus means: “To Cleave to god” and refers to an ecstatic, trance-like state brought on by the singing of Nigunim.

The video was captured at Johnny Brenda’s in Philadelphia and marked the debut of Pillar Without Mercy in Philadelphia.

Transitional Objects

I have introduced the terms ‘transitional object’ and ‘transitional phenomena’ for designation of the intermediate area of experience,
between the thumb and the teddy bear…
between primary creative activity and projection of what has already been introjected.
