BRIQUEVILLE have just released their video premiere titled 'Akte VI' taken off their soon to be released 2nd album titled 'II' which is due for release on September 29th.
BRIQUEVILLE is a five-piece band shrouded in mystery. With more members on stage than in-studio.
Dressed in black Nazgûl-robes and golden masks adopted 10 years ago, have placed them slightly ahead of the scene. Their on-stage presence gives them an air of suspense and an occult like-ritual.
“In order to do this anonymously and have the audience concentrate on the music, we decided to play with masks”, a band member explains. Doing this also allows them to switch the lineup without anyone noticing. What’s even more fascinating about this band is that they have members from all kinds of genre backgrounds, such as Jazz, Metal and Electro scene.
The main inspiration for their shrouded mystery is fixated on a story they heard outside an old school they once congregated in, when leaving the building they bumped into an old man who told them a story of a son murdering his father right at the entrance of the school, 70 years ago. He pulled out a newspaper article to legitimize his story before he disappeared.
Their music is ideal for fans of GOAT, SLEEP, BONG, ISIS, PELICAN, MOGWAI, SUNN O))), GODSPEED YOU BLACK! EMPEROR, AMEN RA and BREACH.
