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.
