Progressive rockband ‘8SNAKE’ has a surprise for his fans and the of progressive rock. The UK band started out in 2011 under the name: ‘Fransisco Fonte Band’, but later changed it to their current name: 8SNAKE.
They have already released two albums and on EP during the nine years of their existence and are not planning on quitting anytime soon.
Their last album, called: Eight, was released in 2018 and has been reviewed by many webzines, radiostations and blogs and has been compared to the perfect mix of Pink Floyd, Tool, Nine Inch Nails, Nick Cave and the doors and meted it together to create their own unique sound.
They have also done many performances and festivals including: Red Roar Festival in the UK and Festivals in Belgium and Luxembourg. They also did a support act for Esprit D’air at a sold out show.
Since then they have been playing many other shows and have been working on this new album, called: Kuiper Belt, during the lockdown and is a live album from their jamsessions between 2014 and 2020.
They are also working on a brand new album with which they’re planning to go touring the UK, Europe and the United States.
The Album starts off in a mysterious setting, leaving the listener immediately with questions about what to expect to be coming. Halfway through the song it opens up a bit but maintains the mysterious sounds. That way the listener will probably be in trance and not skip the song, because he wants know what is coming next.
The singers voice get’s introduced in the second giving the music more mystery with the tone that he is singing it and shut’s you off from reality completely.
With this mystery being constantly present throughout the entire album you will surely be attached to the music until the very end. This is done beautifully through a great balance of great guitar-play, technical drum pieces and the voice of a man who let’s himself go completely lost into his own music, same as the listener does.
At the end of the album, the team gives themselves then also to the fullest, doing their own thing but still perfectly together and that makes this album a brilliant piece of work.
