Fans pick track list of Het Zesde Metaal's 'best of'




The band around Wannes Cappelle played over 500 shows in the last 10 years. They released 4 albums, 3 EP's and a book, and managed to establish themselves as a household name in the Belgian music scene. 
You'll have to be patient for a follow-up for 'Calais' , but in anticipation of new material it's time to look back on the first decennium of Het Zesde Metaal. The band are set to release 'Het Beste Metaal', a double 'best of', this november. This will serve as an introduction to the band for newcomers, with a lot of unreleased extra's for longtime fans. 
What will end up on the first CD is completely up to the fans. The second CD will be compiled by the band themselves and will contain b-sides, unreleased material and some live performances. 

Help the band out here

Voting is possible until October 10.

The Bony King of Nowhere is back

Over three years after the release of his last record, The Bony King of Nowhere is back.


Belgian singer-songwriter Bram Vanparys finally returns with breathtaking new music. 'Silent Days' is out now. Bram's lyrics are honest, his voice hoarse and his songs mature and inspiring. The album reveals a personal journey to new musical territory.
 

 

'Silent Days' combines classic songwriting reminiscent of the old masters, such as Leonard Cohen and Bob Dylan, with dark, complex arrangements that refer to late Talk Talk and even Radiohead. Guitars were played with kitchen knives and the heavily manipulated acousitc sounds reveal that Vanparys might have been listening to Kurt Vile. Bram's lyrics are deeply honest, touching, but never sentimental and his once so angelic voice has clearly matured.

Out now.

Ivy Falls new video 'Fight Me'

'Fight Me' is the latest single from Ivy Falls on Unday Records. A minimalist pop song stirring up a melancholic fight, this is Ivy’s personal ode to the introverted underdog. She wants to display authenticity and a stubborn attitude, saying loud and clear: why change your game for anyone?

Ivy Falls coproduced this track with Amatorski’s Sebastiaan Van den Branden, who adds a refreshing twist to Ivy Falls’ sound. Finishing touches come from the incredible Dijf Sanders, who adds organic textures and vibrancy.

The video premiered on De Morgen


"I wanted something clean and simple yet powerful to be the video for this song 'Fight Me'. Director Valéry Joseph came up with the idea. Just like the music itself, it is pure, restrained and unadorned. Thats fits my style and the atmosphere I want to set. 'Fight Me' is a song about getting into a fight while not really fighting at all. About letting go of others' opinions and the current in which you're supposed to flow. As for all Ivy Falls videos I also like to draw people's attention to the lyrics, and I feel a video like this accomodates that."

Bert Dockx new album ‘Transit’

Bert Dockx adds a compelling new facet to his musical universe with his solo album 'Transit'.



Apart from his main project, Flying Horseman and Dans Dans, Bert has always played solo shows on the side. These shows consisted of a mix of both personal creations and creative intepretations of iconic songs. This album bundles the most remarkable of these interpretations. The production, done by Dockx's faithful accomplice Koen Gisen, is naked, raw and dreamy, and was recorded in Gisen's intimate studio in Ghent, Belgium.


The uniqueness and personaity in Bert's work can once again be admired in this album. The covers aren't anything you'd expected, but everything you never know you wanted. Overly familiar songs, such as 'Albatross' by Fleetwood Mac, 'I'm On Fire' by Bruce Springsteen and 'I Shall Be Released' by Bob Dylan are disassembled, put back together and accomponied by layers you've never heard before.

 

 

Passionate vocals, an intense presence and fierce guitar playing make his performanes unforgettably riveting and athmospheric.

Out now.
