Gnome is a 3-piece instrumental stoner rock band from Antwerp: guitar, bass and drums. With its odd rhythms and silly melodies, this mysterious little creature may look funny at times, but it can also kick you in the shins with some nasty dirty riffs and heavy grooves. Gnome started out in 2016 when members of Ivory for Elephants and Undskyld wanted to express their more psychedelic ideas with lots of fuzz, crazy fast riffs, heavy grooves and long winding structures. Music for the mind and the body.
Things started rolling for Gnome with an opening slot for Desert Storm at Kavka in Antwerp and a shared bill with 70’s rock legends Bang! and Bathsheba for Orange Factory in Leuven. The first Gnome full album “Father of Time”, recorded early 2018 in Studio Jupiter, is awaiting to take over the world!
Ten Foot Wizard
Ten Foot Wizard play turbo-blues party-doom, blending the sounds of classic bands such as Black Sabbath and ZZ Top with more contemporary bands such as Clutch, Queens of the Stone Age and The Misfits. Initially formed in Manchester, England in 2009, Ten Foot Wizard has gone through several personnel changes and now comprises Gary Harkin (vocals/guitar), Adam Henry (guitar), Jonny Banyard (drums), and Emlyn Spiers (bass). The band started with the intention of making stoner rock, but have been gradually expanding it’s musical palette to incorporate elements of punk, blues, funk and psych into the mix of rock, doom and metal.
Hidden Trails is a Belgian rock group formed by the rhythm section of the late and great Hypnos 69 who teamed up with singer and guitarist Jo Neyskens. Debut album Instant Momentary Bliss, with guest Steven Marx on sax, has recently been released on Elektrohasch records. Picking up the loose ends Hypnos 69 left, Hidden Trails made a well balanced psychedelic rock album full of jazzy drums, thick and clean bass lines, mellow singing and dreamy guitar riffs.
