Wat kunnen we over deze Belgen vertellen? Dat ze op 7 januari hun derde full album uitbrengen. Dat ze op 18 januari een - nu reeds uitverkochte - release party geboekt hebben in De Kreun (Kortrijk). Dat ze begin augustus op Alcatraz staan. En misschien nog even dit: dat de band uit 6 veteranen bestaat die melodieuze metal maken. De rest lees je onderaan.
18 januari 2020, De Kreun (Kortrijk) UITVERKOCHT, jawel, maar zoals steeds zijn er altijd van die flippo's die in laatste instantie toch hun kaartje weer kwijt willen.
Een woordje P.R.
Dyscordia is a melodic metalband from Belgium. The band consists of long-time metal veterans who were the driving force behind bands like Gwyllion, Double Diamond, Artrach, Anesthesy, Impedigon and Rhymes of Destruction. Their first EP, 'Reveries', was released in the fall of 2010 and - together with their strong live reputation - earned them support slots for bands like Primal Fear, ReVamp, Ensiferum, Alestorm and At Vance. With the production of their first full-length album, ‘Twin Symbiosis’ (March 2013), the band established a strong working relationship with producer Jens Bogren (Opeth, Paradise Lost, Katatonia,…) and mastering engineer Tony Lindgren at the Fascination Street Studios in Örebro,Sweden.
Shortly after the release of the first album, Dyscordia won the 'Metal Battle Alliance' contest out of 65 European bands, earning them a spot at PPM Fest and Dokk'em Open Air. The album was followed by a lot of extremely positive reviews and resulted in the band playing more and bigger stages. One of the band's personal favorites was the appearance at Graspop Metal Meeting, which was also very well received.
In 2015, the second full-length ‘Words in Ruin’ was recorded with the same team that was responsible for the sound of ‘Twin Symbiosis’. The album was released in 2016 and confirmed Dyscordia’s status in the Belgian metal community when the release show for the album quickly sold out and strong performances at numerous festivals, including Alcatraz Metal Fest, followed.
The band was also noticed on several international performances, including Summerbreeze Open Air in 2017.
In 2019, the band teamed up with Jens Bogren and Tony Lindgren once again to produce their third album. ‘Delete / Rewrite’ combines everything that made the previous albums shine, but also takes the band to new horizons, resulting in their strongest work yet. In the words of Jens Bogren, it sounds ‘heavy as fuck’, and the band is eager to prove this statement on stage!
