---Official website of the Dutch band Belanov---
Belanov was founded in the late nineties. The band attracted attention with their
contribution to the compilation album Fabulous Racers from Dutch label Zabel
Muziek in 2001. After a few years of silence Belanov returned by the end of 2004 in
its current formation, resulting in the four track EP We Left on the Third Day in 2007.
Earlier this year the first full length debut album Paragraph was recorded at the
Eindhoven Void Studios, produced by Pieter Kloos.
The sound of Belanov is best described as atmospheric and extensive, enriched with
functional vocals and carefully controlled dynamics. Belanov tends to be stubborn,
not as a means to and end, but originating as a logical consequence from the mix of
musical influences brought together by the individual members of the band: from post
rock to new wave, pop and punk. Eventually the sound of Belanov is meant to throw
the listener into ecstasies, both on the album as well as to a live audience.
Paragraph is released on November 10th 2008 by Dying Giraffe Records.
