Sounds | Mankind - Savior

Na het potige Locked pakken de heren nu uit met een emotioneel geladen nummer. Zo eentje waarbij je eigenlijk zit te wachten tot het geweld losbarst. Net wanneer je denkt 'nope, ze houden het rustig tot het gaatje', komt er een goed gevonden bridge waarna ... PATAT! Straffe tweede, kerels! En dat allemaal volledig 'independent', nog één laatste keer want bij een volgende zou er support komen van een label en krijgen we ook een heuse press release erbij. Benieuwd!

Integrity is the word of choice when describing this new project. Initially created

by the former Set Things Right guitarist Kristof Du Jardin alongside fellow STR bandmate and current BEAR & Cobra The Impaler axe-man James Falck, the pair set out to create music close to their hearts, with the intention of spilling them in the process. Something that has proven both cathartic and painful.

Digging up certain memories and emotions that, in some cases, would normally be better

off buried, resulted in the pair spending a number of years writing an exuberant amount of music together. Their close and deep friendship, combined with their previous work together in their previous band, provided their work ethic with a strong foundation for the music they had dreamed of making ever since meeting, 10 years ago.

The line-up was subsequently completed by Strains drummer Simon Janssen & bassist Lieven Casters, who bring their own influences and tastes to the table to create something intrinsically unique. This can be seen clearly, not only from a musical perspective, but also visually and aesthetically.

Together they form the musical collective now known as Mankind. An expression of catharsis, a light in the tunnel, a way out of the darkness through confrontation.

Mankind is:

Kristof Du Jardin - Vocals & Guitar

James Falck - Guitar

Lieven Casters - Bass & Vocals

Simon Janssen - Drums
