20:00 | TBHR has changed, shed its old skin, and slowly but surely reshaped its original mold. HAR NEVO is the band's second album and became a conjuring and restless creation.
TBHR shows off many faces. Starting in the punk scene in 2004, the band's remarkable course roller-coasted from the international underground to more public stages in and around Belgium. The band was constantly on the hunt for new impulses, either visually, graphically or musically. The new album reflects that steady, artistic evolution.
After German, Italian, Malaysian, and Japanese releases and heaps of experience on the road, TBHR's résumé lists an impressive number of concerts.Working on a record for four years is a long time. In the meantime, TBHR started collaborating with the Church of Ra collective, where they met a kindred vision and working method. During that period they played few live shows. So as not to lose focus. The hiatus was necessary and paid off in the end. HAR NEVO oozes with waiting, tiresome and disconcerting. Working patiently and endlessly towards an inevitable outburst.
20:00 | 'To Live Vicariously', the sixth album by Kiss The Anus Of A Black Cat, is Stef Heeren's definitive goodbye to the drone folk of before. From now on, industrial synths and mechanical drums will spark in his music; as if The Soft Moon, Virgin Prunes and Throbbing Gristle jointly put together a Fad Gadgetsong. 'To Live Vicariously' is a love triangle between post-punk, industrial and darkwave. It's an album, halfway between heaven and hell; that mesmerizes and is catchy, sounds warm and cold at the same time. 'All tracks originated in the dark caverns of my mind', Heeren smiles. 'The result is dark, but Kwinten (Mordijck, synths) and Koen (Gisen, producer) made sure that the music would not sound too obscure. The end result should still be accessible for the listener.
