‘Illuminandi’ To Play ‘Jeugdhuis Ginsert’ Genk, Belgium


In the end of this month Gothic / Folk metallers Illuminandi are coming back to Holland & Germany, to do some shows. One new show is added, on Sunday October 21 they will also play in Genk, Belgium, with support from Beyond The Doom, Netherlands [thrash/doom/death] & Suada, Belgium [classic/progressive/metal ]. More specific details and other upcoming Illuminandi shows can be found below.

Illuminandi is a six-piece Polish band that performs a unique style of rock music in which heavy guitar riffs are as prominent as haunting cello and violin melodies. Although frequently labelled as “folk metal” or “gothic metal”, the band’s sound does not easily yield to boundaries. Even though Illuminandi appeals to most melodic metal fans, their music also contains elements of extreme metal, classical music, European folk music, progressive rock, early music and even hardcore.Illuminandi’s latest album In Via [Latin for “on the way”] features guest performances from members of Celtic music band Open Folk [Paweł Iwaszkiewicz – recorders, shawm] and Polish avant-garde folk band Żywiołak [Robert Jaworski – hurdy gurdy], as well as two of Illuminandi’s ex-vocalists. The CD was mastered by Polish mastering legend Grzegorz Piwkowski. In Via was released on Ars Mundi on May 28th. 2010. Check out the music video below for W drodze [On the Way]. The video was released last year June 2011.

Beyond the Doom is a new progressive melodic doom / death metal project. Founded in early 2012. The formation consists of several musicians from other bands: Drums: Samuel [The Opponent Process], Bass: Nick [Slechtvalk], Vocals: Joey [Burial Earth] Guitar: Roger [Morphia] and Guitar: Mauce [Thy Blood My Gain]. The band will mostly play covers of past or contemporary white metal bands such as Tourniquet, Seventh Angel, Trouble and more.

Suada is a local Progressive Femalefronted Metal band. As a band, Suada has always created and shared stories. Stories to entertain people, but also stories with a philosophical meaning. Stories about a girl searching for her light and stories about trolls having a fight at the local bar. No matter what the stories are about. When Suada is there, free your mind and, for just one moment, believe in your fantasies.
