Charcoalcity: Started as a one man project eight years ago…..

Charcoalcity – Mechanical Spine

Belgian Industrial metal band «Charcoalcity states, Due to the corona virus we had to do a mix between old movie fragments and images of the band. The track Mechanical Spine is recorded, mixed and mastered by Deezee Records. Published by Cricket Hill Music».

Charcoalcity started as a one man project back in 2012 at Deezee’ s private home studio. After years of playing in different bands he decided he wanted something else… being   very fond of power metal and industrial he sampled his own drums, and started recording bass guitar, guitars, keyboards and his own vocals with backings… a very intense process, because it takes time if you want the job well done without other musicians…

Two years later, he really wanted to do something with the songs, so he asked his good friends Timo De Vreese and Anthony Hooft to join, and started rehearsing… at first it was only for fun, but it became serious by releasing a teaser video, called Leave. This song’s lyrics are about extreme terrorists giving their lives for their gods…

It took only 3 hours to do some camerawork on 2 different locations, and a week to do some editing (thanks Lexy ), all at low budget,  but with a very nice result…

Two weeks of YouTube was already enough to gather more than a thousand views, and Charcoalcity was known before they even played one gig! In 2016 the album Greyscale was born. The album got very nice reviews by many magazines and sold well. The track Black Rain,

In the meantime, another good friend, Dirk De Kesel, joined the band to boost our live- sound with another guitar…For now, Charcoalcity is almost ready to release a new album… behold!!!

Om Ulf Backstrøm (4472 Artikler)
Mitt hovedfokus er musikk som er basert på progressiv tenking. Jeg er på ingen måte ensporet innen musikksmak, i likhet med intensjonen bak prog. Sjangerbegrepet er egentlig temmelig uinteressant annet enn til å gi en pekepinn om hva slags musikk det er snakk om i en anmeldelse. Jeg søker god musikk for å utfordre meg som lytter. God musikk til å trigge mine musikalske smaksløker, og til å sette i gang mine refleksjoner. Da er sjansen stor for at jeg utvikler meg og lærer, noe som bør være drivstoff for et hvert menneske. Fordi det å lære og utvikle seg er noe som tilfører livet en nødvendig porsjon "krydder". Slikt krydderet finner man blant annet i musikk. Ikke overraskende mener jeg at progressiv musikk har den fineste "smaken". På den annen side kan musikk med eller uten progressive elementer være godt nok til hverdags. Til fest derimot holder bare rendyrket prog! Må jo også få med at jeg rimelig kritisk, og jeg mener at det lages mye prog som er i beste fall uinteressant, og faktisk mye som er pinlig dårlig. Heldigvis oppveies dette av ekstremt dyktige aktører som for eksempel: Flower Kings, Mostly Autumn og White Willow, for å nevne noen tilfeldig valgte.
