Sister May: With an artistic masterpiece!

Sister May - Headshot

The Rodenbach brewery is located in the town Roeselare, and the brewery delivers sparkling drinks. In addition, the band Sister May from Roeselare delivers very sparkling alternative prog.

The band Sister May says, «Headshot is a song about the situation in this world. It’s a very relevant song, it’s a manifest about humanity. It must be better and we are all part of this. The chorus is very catchy. The verses provides a moment of reflection. It is that beautiful duality that makes it interesting. Our clip is very, very nice! An artistic masterpiece».

Formed in 2017. Raw, energetic band with a strong live reputation. More than 120 live shows in Europe. Confronting lyrics, suffused with a progressive angle. Grungy guitars, groovy bass, threatning synths, progressive drums and a screaming voice are well fit combo. Lay down before you hit the ground.

The story of Sister May started in 2016…. A little over two years later, these gentlemen have already completed thirty shows, an EP, a single and a video clip. With this they have built up a strong, energetic live performance. The track The Kneep,

Sister May is:

Stefaan Degryse — Drums

Bert Goethals — Vocals

Carl Vangheluwe — Guitars

Wannes Desramault — Bass

Pieter Desmet – Keys

«Tapping from the barrels of grunge and progressive rock with a shot of new wave, you can slurp along with melancholy and despair in our dark cave. Sometimes with fine scalpel and light grin scraping the soul, sometimes with blunt ax and bitter anger cleaving the mind. But otherwise everything is going well with us»,  says front man Bert Goethals.

The grunge remains the core of the music, but Sister May certainly doesn’t cling to it. The structure of the songs has a solid progressive slant with many tempo changes. Also samples and even influences from screamo and new wave contribute to an experimental, yet accessible whole. The key work of the last 2 years is clearly bearing fruit. The track Mindblowing Fugetive,

The rapid interaction between the various influences is guided by the excellent guitar playing and drums. The final punch is delivered by an emotional and often pained vocals by Bert Goethals, who emphasize the climaxes with screaming ejaculations. At first this happens sporadically, but on Revolution the pent-up emotions break completely out of their container. Both the sound and the message cut through the marrow one last time.

Om Ulf Backstrøm (7105 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.
