Cult Of Luna
Klas Rydberg and Johannes Persson of the now deceased hardcore combo, Eclipse, formed Cult of Luna in 1999 in the interests of broadening their horizons to encompass a more emotionally expressive, raw and heavy brand of music. In the following years, Cult of Luna gained critical acclaim and an international touring habit, travelling along an upward curve to bring their cynically brooding sound ever further afield.

Stefanie, Stijn and Peter teamed up to start Brutus in 2013. They all met while playing in different bands from the same region of Leuven (Belgium). In merging their different ideas and musical tastes they have formed a strong union, both musically and personally. Drummer / vocalist Stefanie mixes black-metal blast beats with math-rock flourishes whilst belting out the most impassioned vocals, shifting from deceptively melodic to out-right larynx-punishing in the blink of an eye. Guitarist Stijn Vanhoegaerden takes ethereal post-rock tones to hardcore punk levels of speed and energy aside Peter Mulders powerful sub-frequency shifts. It’s the way in which the band mixes post-rock construction, metal dynamics with hardcore energy and prog rock all the while lacing it with pure pop melodies that make Brutus’ sound so unique and all their own.

Evoking influence from ‘Moon Pix’-era Cat Power and her serene contemporaries such as Emma Ruth Rundle, A.A.Williams is coming out the gate as an exemplary songwriter with anthemic and passionate melodies; the swathe of which leaves the listener doused in sonic density. An unearthly voice soars over delicate yet decisive chords at a performance from the dark-folk singer-songwriter whose debut EP met with awed reviews. A.A. Williams has been aligned with the likes of Chelsea Wolfe, but is also moulded by the fragility and experimentation of artists like Radiohead and PJ Harvey. Williams arrived in January 2019 with her self-titled EP, going on to perform at Roadburn and ArcTanGent festivals and lining up appearances with Amenra, Russian Circles, The Sisters of Mercy and Cult of Luna.
