Wumpscut’s “Shrekk und Grauss (For Greater Good Remix)”

A while ago we read about the Wumpscut “Shrekk und Grauss” Remix Contest and made the For Greater Good remix. The track was not selected for the CD-box but we liked it a lot so we got in touch with :w:

Rudy was so kind as to let us post our remix version online so here goes. Enjoy!

Thank you all for visiting Dylebient 2011!

Dylebient 2011, this first time festival was organised by Gert de Meester, and was a small but very nice and cosy festival!

The other bands were very good, thoroughly enjoyed Gerts first performance with Distant Fires Burning, Mashta Uirtu was cool as well, and also Premonition Factory was super! Amorph set us off into the night with some chilled IDM/glitch/electro.

We had a great time being there and playing. Again Mark B. did a great job as our sound engineer, thanks! Also big thumbs up for Peter G and Peter DK, joining us on stage again, this setup works out very well. :-)

Also a big thanks to all people that came to this event, not always easy for a first-time event to reach out to people, but a lot of old friends AND a lot of new ones found their way to Mechelen.

A load of pictures were taken and we will post the best ones on our Flickr page asap. There is also some video material out there so stay tuned for that as well!

Setlist was: Ossetian Ossuary – Le Jugement Du Roi En Jaune – Orbit – Love Your Terrorist – Insane Asylum – Rush Hour – DTFN – Distress – Ihtyll

The HOT 2011 Aftermath

Well, this was interesting! This has been the earliest FGG gig ever, at 1400 hours in bright daylight. Not our natural biotope at all. Yet, it was a very good one, we received some very nice comments afterwards, and the atmosphere was top!

A big thank you to the Homerecording crew, for this unique opportunity. The event was a real winner! Also thanks to all people attending the performance, and lots of familiar faces for supporting us!

Loads of thanks to our new guests on stage: Peter DK on found-percussion and Peter G playing bass clarinet, clarinet and Breton shepherds’ flute. And of course thanks to Raya, singer with Antwerp Faerie-electro band Dark Poem, lending her lovely voice to some of our songs.

This was the first time we had our new sound technician behind the desk, welcome Mark Burghgraeve! He had the difficult task to lead all this mayhem into battle and he did an awesome job! We’d like to thank our former soundman Wim for all his help at past concerts, and let it be known that we’ll meet each other again soon and often, thanks Wim!

Setlist was: Le Jugement Du Roi En Jaune – Orbit – Love Your Terrorist – Insane Asylum – Synchronism – Rush Hour – DTFN – Distress – Ihtyll
