Pektop, Shoctopus, Luminous Black and Engines of Ruin (10/03/2012)

Pektop is playing Ireland for the very first time, don't miss it!
More bands will be confirmed.

Current Lineup:


The release of The Antikythera Mechanism in December marked the first release of belgian instrumental stonerrockers Pektop, the power trio has been playing for 4 years now bringing heavy riffs to crowds in Belgium. Having shared the stage with names like Ufomammut and Los Natas, but also tons of local and less local bands, they are looking forward to visiting Dublin and meeting the Irish talent! See you there!!

Listen to Pektop's debut album completely free:


Praise for the album:

From stoner to desert, to post-rock sludge, Pektop’s debut covers a wide gamut of genres.

Although predominantly instrumental – apart from the eerie cries of ‘Sadie’ – there is never a time when you miss the lack of vocals; such is the tightness of the Belgian’s musicianship.

Inspired by the quickening bass riff of Pulp Fiction, the opening title-track is awash with fuzzy bursts of white noise, before driving guitar grooves are lead through eerie atmospherics, in the darker caverns of ‘Drowning’. ‘Dusk’, meanwhile, continues to offset the wider swaths of darkness, thanks to slowly, tolling riffs and heavy drones. On the other hand, ‘Flame of Rhys’, which follows, adds a much-needed tempo change, to the albums only brief lull.

Hoping to avoid being “boxed into one genre”, the Leuven trio’s talent for merging big crescendos with ever-changing dynamics, is an impressive feat.
