About this event

Line-up

THURISAZ (BE

Aggressive, intense, stunningly beautiful… A few terms used by the international press to describe THURISAZ. Playing a rare blend of black-doom atmospheric metal, this Belgian collective has been winning the hearts of metalheads all over the world, since their dawning in 1997.

THURISAZ has released five studio albums and one live acoustic album/DVD, all critically well acclaimed by the international press. Their latest effort ‘Re-Incentive’ has created a booming on streaming sites, resulting in record breaking numbers, with a total of +10 million streams worldwide and rising, making them one of the most streamed Belgian metalbands ever.

Beginning on humble stages in the early years, to playing for thousands in venues and festivals with an excellent live reputation, the five-piece band have conquered numerous stages all over the world, including India and tours in USA and Europe.

THURISAZ does not shy away from uncomfortable and confronting lyrical themes dealing with loss, tragedy, pain and suffering. Yet, these Belgians always give their own twist to it, resulting in very personal and touching albums, which many listeners will relate to. Diversity, aggressivity and beauty have always been THURISAZ’s key elements.

SYLVAINE (NO)

A strong duality between worlds. A balance between the beautiful and the harsh, serenity and chaos, between an outside and an inner world, between our human life and the spiritual origins.

Norwegian multi-instrumentalist SYLVAINE deals with the extreme range of emotions this human existence has to offer, as a result of being in constant conflict with oneself and struggling to adapt to this place we call our own. The project serves as an emotional catharsis for the artist, revealing the eternal longing for something more residing within its melodies, capturing the feeling of being trapped and restraint by the human form.

After a year of playing selected, successful concerts around Europe together with her live band, like the European tour with Austrian post-metal outfit HARAKIRI FOR THE SKY and a headlining tour in Russia/Ukraine tour, SYLVAINE once again entered the renown Drudenhaus Studio in France during autumn 2017 to start the recording of her new creation, “Atoms Aligned, Coming Undone”. Together with recording and mixing engineer Benoît Roux and her two session musicians, Stephen Shepard and Stéphane “Neige” Paut (ALCEST), SYLVAINE pushes the duality between beautiful and extreme even further on her third album, bringing the concept behind the project to new heights. The album mastered by Jack Shirley (DEAFHEAVEN, OATHBREAKER) at Atomic Garden in San Francisco (US).

Still serving as the sole composer of both music and lyrics, producer and musician of most instruments herself, SYLVAINE takes the sound of her sophomore album “Wistful” (2016) and develops it into a more mature and contrasted form on “Atoms Aligned, Coming Undone”, all while trying to communicate the essence of her project, which remains the same as always before.

Now enter the cold and icy world of “Atoms Aligned, Coming Undone”, and let yourself be enveloped by its pressing despair.

lalma (BE)

lalma is a girl. her name is defined as ‘a piece of land that defends only on rain’. for john roan she is the wasteland that always laid between him and his mother, the giant wall blocking their speech and feelings. when all of the sudden the mother isn’t there anymore, lalma still seems to wander around in the vicinity. she migrates from the land at his feet to his shoulders. from that moment on, could she be acting as his compass?

their mutual journey brings them to a black metal inspired album, but conceived on his own terms, defined by his own set of rules, without regard to what the die-hard fans of the genre will think. the album has the initial intention of a twisted but honest tribute to the mother. ‘twisted’ because of the way roan found his mother in her bedroom after a severe brain haemorrhage at a tipping point in her mental well-being. in 'beyond the pale' he presents linda blair as a visual reference to a scene in 'the exorcist', which will be his final image of her. ‘honest’ because she does not always get the star role that mothers often receive. ‘a tribute’ because he did love her.

john roan has been part of arsenal, a band that has been making waves in the last two decades with danceable electronic pop music and mesmerizing crowds with a rock-solid live reputation. but his extremely personal story could only be told with the use of an completely different vehicle. lalma turns out to be the perfect embodiment for this. without any prior knowledge of the genre, he starts digging into the sinister world of black metal, only to quickly come to the conclusion that this will be his weapon of choice. is it the speed that accompanies the music? is it the psychedelic aspect of the genre? there is no real answer to these questions, but he instinctively feels that he has found the language to tell his story….

on stage john roan is accompanied by a pack of young wolves including joren de roeck (oathbreaker, soulgrip), gregory simons (vonnis, mathlovsky), wannes kerckhove (haester) and tom van heule (makimura), who became the constructors of lalma’s massive sound, the uncomfortable yet perfect blanket for john’s clean melodic vocals….
