Each song on GOLD’s debut, Interbellum — released in late 2012 via German cult label Ván Records — is a well-crafted piece of music and a story on its own, and overall is a monument to our time and to a civilization in decline. It deals with instability and the fear of things to come, yet offers a spark of love and hope in an attempt to give meaning to life in modern times. The album’s authentic tone and warmth completes the richness of GOLD’s sound, produced by Igor Wouters and Vanderbuyst’s main man Willem Verbuyst. The main drive ofthe band’s songwriting takes place between vocalist Milena Eva and guitarist Thomas Sciarone (ex-The Devil’s Blood). Longtime friends, drummer Igor Wouters and bassist Harm Haverman provide a steady yet adventurous foundation and guitarist Nick Polak completes the bunch with his talent for harmony and melody.
GOLD has released a host of video singles for Interbellum including “Antebellum” [view], “Love, The Magician” [view], “One Of US” [view], a lyric video for “North” [view] and just last week they released a live video of the band covering Shocking Blue’s “Send Me A Postcard” [view].
