No Comments

Basement Critters are a Belgian metallic hardcore band, Take 5 different characters with a different taste of music and throw them in a blender, add some influences like Machine Head, Prong, RATM, Killswitch Engage, Helmet, Heaven Shall Burn and after chopping, creaming and pureeing you hear Basement Critters. Do they really have nothing in common? Actually, yes, they are all raised in the H8000 Hardcore scene/ area when all hell broke loose with bands like Blindfold, Congress, Liar, Regression… . The nineties vibe and groove is Basement Critters signature, we want to bring back that “special” feeling. Let’s protest again. After their first steps to record a demo at Empyrean studio, they went to Germany to work with Lasse Lammert at the LSD studio for the recording of the ep Hurt Me With The Truth and from then on WormHoleDeath records came into the picture , distribution of the EP and a plan for the future.The first full album. Basement Critters went to Italy at the MathlabRecordingStudio to work with Producer Jonathan Mazzeo and signed a worldwide record deal with WormHoleDeath records. 01 May 2020 album release GOD SAVE US AS .JPEG We all live in a world of data where algorithms calculate and predict the human behaviour and archive it. Stop the digitalisation, the social media horror, we all know that the human mind is more complex than a sum of data, but we more and more trust bits and bytes, see correlations and not causes to create our own online opinion. Welcome to the Gadget Generation where we all look pretty,but our life is shitty! Check out the video interview by Jan Vervaeke
