Grand Aquila (BE)

Dunk!Festival 2024 - Day 3

Sharing members and good times with bands like Terraformer and Ilydaen, Grand Aquila are one of the most promising names in the Belgian metal scene. The quartet might be a new name in the scene but are not new to rocking stages and blowing minds! On the contrary, they already own the stage with the confidence of veterans! The band released their debut record “Vestiges” via dunk!records this year; a fiery showing of roaring post-metal and suffocating dark ambiance alternating head-banging climaxes with meditative passages in a cornucopia of styles and influencers.

The band’s atmospheric brand of instrumental music, reflects a rich tapestry of influences, spacing from Amenra-esque heart wrenching moments to Russian Circles-ish sonic triumphs. Independently recorded between 2021 and 2022 with Tobias Stieler of Kokomo fame, “Vestiges” showcases the band’s commitment to crafting expansive soundscapes and creating a dark ambiance while subtly hinting at hope, even via unconventional means.

Most notably, the tracks on the album are seamlessly connected through meticulously crafted analog instrument interludes, featuring melodika, bugle, and waldorf blofeld, but also incorporating sounds like wrinkled paper, plastic bags, old door hinges, and a wide range of vocalizations, from clean singing to powerful screams. Grand Aquila is more than a band; they're architects of a sonic journey! Get ready to embark on a musical adventure that defies boundaries and get ready to soar with Grand Aquila!!
