The Day The Black Man Died is the moniker of Bas Verbeek’s adventures in minimal improvisation on guitar and vocals. Influenced by postrock, desert post-americana guitar music, religious chants, Steve Reich-like patterns, doom, black metal and ambient, TDTBMD brings gloomy soundscapes that come from inside; a performance is always an intense unfolding of moods impossible to ignore. The Day The Black Man Died toured and performed around Europe, Asia and the United States, together with like minded souls like Wouter Jaspers, Bram Stadhouders en Staplerfahrer. The sound of The Day The Black Man Died is also implemented in the Vatican Analog collaboration group 4DaLadiez.
