Tielman Susato

Tielman Susato (also Tylman) (c.1500 – c.1562) was a Renaissance Flemish composer, instrumentalist and publisher of music in Antwerp. While his place of birth is unknown, some scholars believe that because of his name—Susato meaning de Soest, of the town of Soest — he may be from the town of that name in Westphalia. Not much is known about his early life, but he begins appearing in various Antwerp archives of around 1530 working as a calligrapher as well as an instrumentalist: trumpet, flute and tenor pipe are listed as instruments that he owned.

System Divide

System Divide is a band. Founded in Israel and Belgium in 2008, SYSTEM DIVIDE quickly became a transnational project with in its rank vocalists Sven De Caluwe (Aborted) and Miri Milman (ex-Distorted), longtime friends Cole Martinez (ex Years of Fire, Antenora), Andrew Lenthe (Antenora), and Mike Heller (Malignancy).
SYSTEM DIVIDE set out to revolutionize the conventions of the over-saturated melodic death metal genre, proving that extreme metal can have more depth than blast beats, while female vocals do not have to conform to the precepts of the “Goth” genre.

TRIGGERFINGER

Triggerfinger is a Belgian band with an international sound which appeals to both younger people, who recognize Queens of the Stone Age and old rockers, who are reminded of Led Zeppelin. Triggerfinger receives rave reviews from the media. One such review claims Triggerfinger's live show makes about 500,000 other so-called rock bands instantly redundant. Triggerfinger consists of three talented musicians: singer/guitarist Ruben Block (Sin Alley and Angelico), bassist Paul van Bruystegem - aka lange Polle / Monsieur Paul - who still plays with BJ Scott and drummer Mario Goossens (Noordkaap...

Angeli Di Pietra

belgian band that makes folk metal and handed out free demo's at paganfest, thank you for the demo's ^^ What do you get when you mix metal with the terms “power” and “folk”?
Angeli di Pietra, of course!
This Antwerp-based band came to life in 2002 and after a rocky start found the members to complete their goal of world domination. Even though their first demo-offering, “Songs of Solace” (2004) didn't match up to the band's expectations, it provided the learning process needed to really kick some ass by improving the songs.

Marine

Marine were a shortlived Belgian crew who found home in the post-punk movement in the UK.
The sleevenotes in this LTM release even credit their "frantic funk" sound as as an influence on Josef K. It's easy to see why on this compilation which encompasses their entire studio recordings but considering they only released four singles that's not really saying much. The group appreciated The Clash (the 'London Calling' style howling on 'Animal In My Head' and 'Remember Caribou') but from listening to third single 'Same Beat' a closer relation to their sound is Haircut One Hundred.
