    • Thot

      - ​Latest album: http://thot.bandcamp.com/album/the-city-that-disappears

      ​- ​Lastest video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KVjttAU4QrE&feature=youtu.be&t=5m30s

      ​​They​ produce a​ unique blend of ​​post-​industrial ​and ​post-rock​ music​​​ e​nhanced with singular visuals and light shows.​ They've played live acts in may european countries, and obviously in my homeland Czech Republic where I saw them everytime they played there, and this is just mindblowing experience​​​!

        Hi Enki,

        thanks a lot for this suggestion. I think Thot will fit Incubate really well, and seeing that this post got so many votes in short time I think more people think that.
        Now listening to “The City That Disappears”, thanks for sharing this album with us. They did quite some great remixes for bands as well.

        I will add Thot to our wishlist for 2015. You will hear of us when we’ll book them.

          • Filip Gheysen

            Filip Gheysen (°1979) is a musician and audio artist, living and working in Ghent, Belgium, with a passion for sound and experimental music. Using only a tabletop guitar, effects and the occasional autoharp, he creates abstract droning soundscapes, stripped of all unnecessary elements, focussing solely on the timbre and tone of his instrument.

            "Met een minimum aan middelen weet Gheysen een rijk en fascinerend geluidslandschap te tekenen." (Gonzo Circus)

            • Pruikduif

              https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JpG8WSmWFHQ
              website: www.pruikduif.com

              This Ghent based band has always put a lot of focus on their life performance, and every show I've seen has been absolutely great! They have a strong post-punk attitude and mix that with challenging pop tunes. Their last 2 shows were in Vooruit Ghent (I've seen them both!) and they received a lot of praise for that.
              They would fit the line-up for Incubate perfectly I believe

                audiovisual project of belgo-peruvian enfant musico terrible -jozefaleksanderpedro-
                audiomatic this is about a reprise of jordan de la sierra's
                sphere of sublime dances part IV, out of 1977 ... made with
                nintendo dsi, mattel synsonics, a couple of drummachines, live
                drums, a wurlitzer 200A, a couple of saxplayers
                & usually just one tape echo
                visually think of glitches, flares, saturation, colourful
                textures made out of VHS circuit.bent mixers & video synthesizers
                as a hardware video effects generator, live manipulated with 50mm - 200mm
                lens objectives to shift the experience to another dimension

                this is the closest you can…

                      Sweet heavy band from Amsterdam that I have seen live twice. They would fit the lineup of Incubate perfectly. For all lovers of long compositions.

                            contemporary progressive metal with musicians from all over the Netherlands.

                            website: www.overhaulband.com

                            Taken from their website:

                            "It is the artist’s job to extend boundaries and widen the world, to reinvent themselves at all times and revise their work to perfection. This is OVERHAUL, a manifesto and a promise to themselves to keep their music fresh and original with respect to their musical background, which lies in the timeline of the progressive rock scene from the 70’s to the present."

                            • ASHTORETH

                              ASHTORETH is a project in a search of a shamanistic perspective, channeling at times minimal, meditativ drones; and at other a catharsis of doom, noise and experimentation touching upon folk, post rock, psychedelica and more. But always in a free form.

                              ASHTORETH is a one man's journey into the unknown, exploring new sonic landscapes with every single live performance, sometimes accompanied by projected film.

                              • Kalulu

                                New band, consisting of 7 members, just released their debut album 'Hoax' in Worm, Rotterdam. Don't expect a set genre, Kalulu is a band that strongly dislikes conforming to existing patterns and that loves to stray off the beaten track. Hoax stuns and astounds with songs ranging from howling rock guitars and experimental dance to intimite laments and melodious dreams. This album brings together a multitude of instruments and styles into a highly individual mix that will resonate in your very core.
                                Listen:
