Crackmind

Crackmind

After “Because All Collapses”, first album released at Mausoleum Records, CRACKMIND breaks free from the rules to continue forging his particular identity with “The Wreck Age”, his new album will be released in three parts. The first part, “Face To Faith”, released at the end of 2016, questions in four pieces, spirituality, faith and the meaning of life. “The Dark Side Of The Mind”, the sequel expected late 2018, draws the portrait of a human soul in search of meaning but battered by the madness of his time. The music is heavy and catchy but also melodic and sometimes progressive. Supported by Romtomcat’s organic production (Sofa Studio) and Dan Coutant’s dynamic mastering (Clutch, The Sword), the sound of CRACKMIND reveals power and emotion. Since the beginning of the year, Dam (bass) has joined Klerk (drums), Normann (vocals), Alcatraz and Lloxan (guitars) to build an ambitious album whose graphic universe is intimately linked to songs, sound and discussed subjects. Available in three EPs that will be released gradually until 2019, the artwork of the vinyl versions will merge in the end to form a unique visual work. “Face To Faith” and “The Dark Side Of The Mind” are now discoverable on stage!

Sidilarsen

Sidilarsen

When everywhere outside it is the state of emergency and we try to exchange what remains of freedom against an appearance of safety, SIDILARSEN sets the table again, with on the menu nothing else than blood, sweat and tears and the pleasure is there, high as the first day, on stage as on record, within reach of decibels!

Chapter after chapter, the digital plants its roots in the ground, the machine humanizes, crosses with in sight the best of both worlds, ROCK and ELECTRO MUSIC, as an orgy of sound and sense to be taken in the face, with a crazy, fluid, positive energy and especially highly contagious.

The rhythmic section is irresistible, offensive and massive; the machines are tamed to blend into the landscape, the guitars slice in the snap but never forget the melody in the dressing room; the two songs complete and answer each other as never before, in both French and English, drawing as much from experience as from the observation of the world, from the furthest to the nearest, finely political or gently introspective; The production of Plum in the Studio «La Quadrature Du Cercle» (at the foot of the Pyrenees) is as it was before for “Chatterbox”, demential!

This is a Tulun Quintet united like the five fingers of the hand that has so much to offer and so much to share, calibrated for the road with over 600 concerts at their active and a show made of human, sound and image, fine-tuning the bottom and shape and developing its credo with their hands dirty, moving forward without ever denying himself, with a flow and a Pulse that definitely stick to the heart and to the body.

“Dancefloor Bastards,” the sixth album since the turn of the century, is 13 titles of 100% pure SIDILARSEN with as main theme : urgency, spontaneity, sincerity and generosity.

Cosmogon

Cosmogon

Cosmogon was founded back in 2011 out of the ashes of the legendary Luxemburgish bands ex-inferis and Abstract Rapture.

Cosmogon is the answer to a strong belief in and a perennial need for pure handmade Rock and Metal where the influences reach from Doom over Punk
to Metal, taking their influences from bands such as Black Sabbath, St. Vitus, Pantera, Mastodon, Entombed, Trap Them, Satyricon and Lamb of God just
to name a few.

The first live show took place on January 28th, 2012 at Kulturfabrik Esch/Alzette for Desdemonia’s 15th year celebration, which were followed by many
shows in 2012 and 2013..

After a line up change in Spring 2013, when Dani came in as the new bassplayer, Cosmogon is stronger than before and ready to go live on stage and
tear everything up. The same year Cosmogon also played at Sonisphere Festival in Amnéville, France.

2014, was an important year for Cosmogon:

– in February/March the band supported MORE THAN A THOUSAND (Por) for two of their release shows in Lisbon and Porto,

– on March 14th, they released their first EP, Chaos Magnum, at l’ENTREPOT Arlon (Belgium) with fellow bands Scarred (Lux) and Age of Torment (Bel),

– on March 15th, they won the Wacken Metal Battle selection in Luxembourg, which granted them a show at the legendary WACKEN OPEN AIR Metal
Festival. Cosmogon palyed the W.O.A Metal Battle Finals on July 31st,2014.

Cosmogon is also planning more shows in 2014 and beyond to promote their latest EP. They are also working on new material for an upcoming LP which is
planned to being recorded in 2015.

Ardenne Heavy

Ardenne Heavy

Coming from Bastogne in Belgium «Ardenne Heavy» is a Thrash / Heavy Metal band, born in 2005 of a big friendship between 4 ardennais for the love of music.

After having plagued the local stages and having given birth to two self-produced demos in 2011 and in 2012, the band had the honor, start of 2013, to be selected to represent the Luxembourg province at the Durbuy Rock Festival.
Start 2014, the band made their first 5-titles self-produced EP “The EP With No Name” recorded at the Ear We Go Studio. The EP received a good welcome by the critique and the audience, offering the band to link the show dates as the Ward’in Rock Festival, the Donkey Rock Festival, the Nordic Rock Festival, L’Entrepôt, the American Rock, the Hop’n’Roll or again La Guerre des Gaules where they can be the first part of Skindred and Mass Hysteria !

2017 signed the year of the renewal for Ardenne Heavy because a fifth member and a new guitar player joined the band. New compositions saw the light of day and result in a whole new album entitled “No Nuts No Glory”.
This one goes out in August 26th 2017 during the sixth edition of the American Rock, festival which the members of the band are the organizers and founders.

Squidhead

Squidhead

Squidhead was born somewhere around 2009 in Belgium as an instrumental solo project (with the Painter doing everything from guitars, bass, programming to mix and mastering duties) and become an official act at the end of 2013 to finally release his debut EP “Prohibition” in 2014.

After receiving al lot of positive reviews from more than 50 magazines and webzines around the Globe, the solo act slowly evolved into an actual band with the addition of 2 new members on vocals and Bass. This new entity quickly started to work on their debut album and the new image of the band.

After more than 3 years of writing/composing work and a mix/mastering done by HK Krauss at Vamacara Studio (Clisson) during summer 2017, the band is finally unveiling their first full length album “Cult(ist)” in March 2018.

Using strange masked characters as alter egos, the Squidhead plays a mix of modern death metal with melodic licks and industrial elements on 8 strings guitar, with lyrics and imagery inspired by the horrific universe of the writer HP Lovecraft.

Right now, the band is ready to hit the stages and finally spread his madness among the living.

Fabulae Dramatis Icon

Fabulae Dramatis

Fabulae Dramatis was formed in 2011 in Antwerp, Belgium. In 2012 they released their debut album Om.  Followed in 2017 by their eclectic second album, Solar Time’s Fables.

The band was formed by Isabel Restrepo; vocals, sitar, harmonium; Hamlet, bass and vocals and Daniel Díaz, guitar and bass, who also write the bands tunes. Their current line- up also includes Isadora Cortina, Maxime Moreira, drums; Wesley Beernaert, vocals. As well as collaborations with some
brilliant international guest musicians playing violin, cello, accordion and djembe to name a few.

The band presented for the first time its music and visual concept during the release concert of the album “Solar Time’s Fables”.

The current live line-up includes Isabel Restrepo (operatic and growling voice, harmonium, saxophone and djembe), Hamlet
(voice and bass), Daniel Díaz (guitar) and Teo Dimitrov (drums.

Together they combine the intensity and volume of progressive metal with more soft, lyrical, classical themes. The sound is influenced by a range of world music and instruments such as the sitar, harmonium and tambura. Lyrics in the music often focus on short stories or fables.
Fabulae Dramatis prides its style on a “union of ideas, experimenting ​with diverse cultural and musical influences combined into one project”.
Their music has been described by Classic Rock Society magazine as having “deep thought and insular attention” paid to it with “the spirits of Zappa and Beefheart”.

Athaleon

Athaleon

This is in 2009 that Rica (Keyboardist) and Corey (drummer) met and noticed their same passion for music.

After having played in different bands where they could experience the scene, they imagined a new Metal Symphonic project that was close to their heart for several years: Athaleon

After a long search for musicians, the group is finally composed with their first line-up in 2017 including Stephanie on vocals, Logan on bass and growl, Bernard and Benjamin on guitar and releases his first demos: River of Time and Hunt Evidence.

In the beginning of 2018, due to his significant involvement in his other band, Bernard must unfortunately leave the group and is replaced by Jose a guitarist who comes from Colombia.

The name of Athaleon was imagined by the group and designates a fictional city dominating the sky where each member is living.
This utopian world will see its existence turned upside down when its travelers discover the Earth, its history, its vices, …

What will happen to Athaleon when corruption, money and power reach the doors of this world …
