  Van Muylem    7 mei 2024

Belgian thrash/punk metal formation ThrAnK just signed a record deal and will fly under the wings of GIO SMET RECORDS. Together with the label, the 3-piece formation has big and exciting plans for the future and will certainly be a band to keep a close eye on!


Comments by the band:

“Only one meeting with Gio was enough to convince us that working together was the only way forward. His vision on our collaboration matched perfectly with what we were looking for and we are sure this will be the beginning of amazing things. Let's do this!”

Comments by the label:

“As you all know, at Gio Smet Records, we only go for quality artists and bands. ThrAnK is yet another example of that! We are 100% behind their music and, after just one meeting, we knew we were on the same page also personally. We are excited to start this journey together!"

Band biography:

It all began with an ad on social groups to form a band, to perform covers and in time write some original material. It was pretty good actually, when the 5 members of that cover band clicked to perfection during the one and only gig they delivered at Boite à Zic in Nivelles as it was crowned winner of the "Battle of the Bands".

Futures dates were booked... And then, Covid happened... All dates were cancelled and prolonged...a waiting game ensued. We couldn't play for a while even to rehearse. Tough on everyone we, ultimately and unfortunately, saw a majority of the band members leaving to pursue other musical challenges.

With Alexis joining the remaining members, Sebastien and Erbil, the focus was directed to songwriting exclusively. So we are pleased to introduce: ThrAnK … somewhere between Thrash and Punk! Seb takes care of drums, Alexis of bass and Erbil of guitar and the singing duties.

We are looking very much forward to play for you all on stage. Feel free to like and share our music with your friends. Stay tuned for more.

Take care, stay safe and we love you,

Alexis Erbil Seb.
