ABOUT

Dyscordia is a melodic metalband from Belgium. The band consists of long-time metal veterans who were the driving force behind bands like Gwyllion, Double Diamond, Artrach, Anesthesy, Impedigon and Rhymes of Destruction.

Their first EP, ‘Reveries’, was released in the fall of 2010 and – together with their strong live reputation – earned them support slots for bands like Primal Fear, ReVamp, Ensiferum, Alestorm and At Vance.

With the production of their first full-length album, ‘Twin Symbiosis’ (March 2013), the band established a strong working relationship with producer Jens Bogren (Opeth, Paradise Lost, Katatonia,…) and mastering engineer Tony Lindgren at the Fascination Street Studios in Örebro, Sweden.

The album was followed by a lot of extremely positive reviews and resulted in the band playing more and bigger stages. Shortly after the release, Dyscordia were very well received at PPM Fest, Dokk’em Open Air and Graspop Metal Meeting.

In 2015, the second full-length ‘Words in Ruin’ was recorded with the same team that was responsible for the sound of ‘Twin Symbiosis’. The album was released in 2016 and the release show for the album quickly sold out. Strong performances at numerous festivals, including Alcatraz Metal Fest, followed. The band was also noticed on several international performances, including Summerbreeze Open Air in 2016.

In 2019, the band teamed up with Jens Bogren and Tony Lindgren once again to produce their third album. ‘Delete / Rewrite’ combines everything that made the previous albums shine, but also takes the band to new horizons, resulting in their strongest work yet. In the words of Jens Bogren, it sounds ‘heavy as fuck’. A support slot for the Doro 2020 European Tour was secured.

When Covid kicked in, these plans had to be cancelled. As another consequence of this difficult period, founding member and drummer Wouter Debonnet quit and was replaced by Chevy Mahieu in the latter days of 2022. The band had to look for another rehearsal room and eventually returned to their hometown Kortrijk. During 2023, the band took the time to get Chevy worked in. Quickly this resulted in the creation of new material. A new clip “Hell” was released on the 24th of March, and the fourth album is expected in 2024. A second single and matching video for the song ‘the Passenger’ is to be released early spring 2024.
