SONS OF MORPHEUS (CH)
Biografie Sons of Morpheus
Drie Zwitserse muzikanten met allemaal evenveel ervaring en successen achter de rug en verenigd in wens en doel. Met hun gelijknamige debuutalbum ontwikkelden Sons of Morpheus een sonische trans tussen stoner, blues, rock en “wavering psychedelia”. Afgelopen jaar deed de band een zeer succesvolle tour door Europa met niemand minder dan Karma To Burn. Het album is inmiddels opgenomen en komt in maart 2017 uit en de band is klaar voor een nieuwe tour door Europa, maar nu stand-alone! En is daarna klaar om ieder festival plat te spelen…!!!
Komatsu is a super-massive rock band from Eindhoven, the rock capital of the Netherlands. Their music is a mix of sludge, stoner rock and metal. Komatsu is praised for their live performances. The press writes:
“A Komatsu show will let the ground shake and gets your attention from start to finish. It is truly an eargasm for the trained listener. At a live show Komatsu grabs your throat and then not let go”.
“This flat rolling machine with her bulldozer-rock will effortlessly conquer Europe and other continents!”
In the summer of 2015 they recorded their second full-length album. The record will be released in the beginning of 2016.
Komatsu is formed early 2010. Members of locally acclaimed bands from Eindhoven Rock City joined forces. Their years of musical experience in all kinds of bands and individual creativity created a brutal mix of sludge, rock and metal……..KOMATSU is born!
The band released a self-titled EP in 2011. After that, they focused on live shows and writing material for their first full length album. “Manu Armata” saw the daylights in February of 2013 and was instantly well received by the international press. It got raving reviews and Komatsu’s music style was compared to bands like Queens of the Stone Age, Torche, Mastodon, Monster Magnet and Karma to Burn.
Over the past five years they have steadily grown and were asked to be the support act for internationally well-known bands like Truckfighters (SWE), Lonely Kamel (NO) and a range of bands from the USA such as Karma to Burn, The Sword, Red Fang, Clutch, Nashville Pussy, High on Fire, Corrosion of Conformity and Baroness. They also performed at the official Queens of the Stone Age after party in the Effenaar in Eindhoven. In 2014 they went on European tour with none other than John Garcia (Vista Chino, ex-Kyuss, Hermano, Unida and Slo Burn) and played 32 shows in 13 countries.
In November 2015 Komatsu is on the verge of crossing and conquering Europe again with another Palm Desert Scene stoner hero: a tour with Nick Oliveri’s Mondo Generator!
