Welcome everyone, to danblacksberg.com!


Hi Everyone.

I’m very excited to announce the release of my new album “Pillar Without Mercy” on Tzadik Records! This album is the first by my new band, Deveykus. Deveykus is my new band that brings the sounds of Jewish music fully into the world of experimental doom metal by delving into the spiritual side of Hasidic nigunim (wordless melodies) in order to draw out a new sound, this time inspired by Doom bands like Earth, and Sunn O))).

This record represents a real meeting ground between the experimental and Jewish sides of my music in a way that’s easier and more organic than I’ve ever done before. These two genres just work together, for me, on an aesthetic and also on a purely musical level. The purpose of this band is to bring the awesomeness of Hasidic music to a wider audience in a way that’s new, exciting and relevant.

I’m proud to announce that the first track of our album is being premiered by Alarm Magazine. Check it out and enjoy:


Also, I’m happy to announce our first live shows as a band, which are also our record release shows!

June 27th @ Littlefield Brooklyn, NY w/ Les Rhinocéros and Pitom.


June 29th @ johnny Brenda’s Philadelphia, PA w/ Les RhinocĂ©ros and Cleric.

Stay tuned for lots more great news about this record. And hope to see you all at the shows!
