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”.

Lonely Duck Fuck

Lonely Duck Fuck

Lonely Duck Fuck is an alternative rock band from Liège.

Formed in December 2013 by Sébastien Frutoso (vocals, guitar) and Simon Lambert (Guitar), they are joined by Germain Blavier (drums) and in January 2014 by Christophe Severijns (bass).

It is the meeting of Simon and Sébastien in September 2013 which will create the project.
Simon called the members of his previous group (Magnetic Tapes) to form the quartet. After one year of composition and work, the band performed for the first time at the coffee-concert “l’Île aux trésors” located Place du XX août in Liège .

Their influences are multiple, the mix of rock influences from the psyche to the stoner with a strong rock 90’s influence defines the style of the band.

Since then, Lonely Duck fuck has performed in different places of the region (Stairs, Legia, Smile, The Garage …) before appearing at the contest Emergenza 2016.
The group finishes in 2nd place at the end of the regional final at the Reflektor on June 11, 2016.

After this experience, LDF enters in studios for an EP in July, and replaces Germain on drums by Damien Xanthoulis.

The EP “(it was) Meant to be” is finally finished in May 2017.
