Grotto’s third LP and Stickman debut is a summation of the band’s
achievements in their brief but prolific history - a two-track odyssey
across spaced- and stoned-out heavy rock landscapes. Within Europe, the Belgian heavy rock
scene is sometimes unfairly overshadowed
by its larger neighbors. However, at the latest
with the founding of Desertfest Belgium
in Antwerp, the heart of the European
Union is rising as a focal point in the scene.
Enter Grotto - a unique voice hailing from
Flanders who met at the festival’s first edition
in 2014.
Beginning with a series of heavily improvised
late-night jam sessions, they stumbled
upon a sound that forged the heavier elements
of rock with dreamy and melodic
trips. Releasing two LPs in quick succession
in 2016 and 2017, Grotto made strides
to defining their own voice, incorporating
elements of post rock, psychedelic rock and
atmospheric soundscapes into a progressive
song structure.
Lantern of Gius is Grotto’s third LP and debut
for Stickman Records. Comprised solely of two epic songs - one per side - it is a musical
journey few other bands could recount
solely in instrumental fashion. Guitarist
Marvin Dinneweth’s iconic guitar work uses
spacious, open guitar chords as opposed
to chunky stoner riffs for the foundation of
the music, allowing bassist Jeroen Moerman
and drummer Arno Cottyn to carry the
undercurrent of the musical stream. Moving
between passages of introspective post rock
and full-on distorted riffing, Lantern of
Gius is the band’s most varied and mature
effort yet that will resonate with listeners
from all across the spectrum of rock music
and beyond.
Lantern of Gius is available on colored
180gr vinyl including download and on CD
beginning October 18th, 2019 - just in time
for the band’s own appearance at Desertfest
Belgium on the same weekend!
