» HELIOGABALE (FR) (Noise / Rock)

HELIOGABALE is a Paris band whose road met Steve Albini's, Al Sutton's or Iain Burgess'. This time they stopped by the doorstep of French sound engineers Patrick Müller and Antoine Gaillet who respectively recorded and mixed down the band's sixth album to be released in September 2010. Since its beginning in 1992 HELIOGABALE has been using change and evolution as keywords of its music; each album was a break with the previous one, highlighting a unique style. This new opus contains ten songs, dressed up in shadows and lights : some sort of an inventory, polaroid cuts from lives where gymnopedical melodies intervene in the band's rhythmical universe.

» HIBAGON (IT) (Instrumental / Math noise)

Hibagon is a heavy and polyrhythmic two-piece act born in Bergamo (Italy) in 2011. The duo channels the energy of the straightforward guitar + drums formula into irregular textures, bringing it back to the listener in geometric and distorted frames.

In 2011 Hibagon collects the tracks of its first months of existence and publishes the 7 songs EP “Hibagon VS Monsters Spewed from Time’s Stomach to Clutch the Universe in a Mortal Slime”, followed by two years of touring, where the band gathers the first largely positive public responses.

Reinforced the impact and deconstructed the song-form, the duo records a second EP, named “Hibagon and the Quest for the Creature Previously Known as Moughra the Guardian”: it’s a 5 chapters novel, strongly influenced by sci-fi culture, released in October 2014 on Fumaio Records.

Pushed by the positive reviews and the good crowd response at their live shows, Hibagon intensifies its live activity in support of this album, and 2015 sees the band leaving Italy for its first European tour: a series of 14 shows in 4 different countries - France, Belgium, UK and Ireland - and for a second one in Switzerland and Austria in January 2016.

The duo has a clear musical direction, and in 2017 is going to publish a proper LP, named “POLYPOSMIC”, on which you’ll find 12 tracks, more intense and dynamically various than ever. The album will come out in April in CD for Wooaaargh Records (DE), Taxi Driver Records, La Fornace DIschi, 5Feet Under (DK), Pied de Biche (FR), and in September in 12” vinyl LP for Taxi Driver Records, Il Verso del Cinghiale, Woooaaarrgh (DE), 5FeetUnder (DK), Gabu Records (FR), Pied de Biche (FR), Brigante Records, I Dischi del MInollo and Toten Schwan.

» ILILL (Indie Rock)

duo formed in 2012 and based in brussels,
ilill plays a primitive but sophisticate music, in which simplicity is
associated to experience and radicalism. This approach, of a rather
basic rock instrumental combination has been described by the word
Postpunk. This could be found in the repetitive structure of the songs
as in the vocal expressiveness of Mariette Michaud.
Voice, guitar, bass tom, big synth, cymbals and fury.

Mariette Michaud is also experimental filmmaker and sings French songs
mainly from the 1930s repertoire in Demi-Brides.

Jean-Philippe Saulou has been seen and heard in / with u.n.d.o, Bülanz
Tendance King Kong or the Anti Rubber Brain Factory ...
