Herod Layne

 São Paulo, São Paulo, BRA

Herod Layne follows that path of what is commonly referred to as post-rock. Our work features deep ambiences and dark heavy noisy sounds, most frequently in the same song. Some references we follow: Mogwai, Godspeed You! Black Emperor, Sonic Youth, Mono.


Post-rock instrumental band formed by Sachalf (guitars), Elson (bass), Lippaus (guitars) and Johnny (drums).

In 2007 the band took part in the David Gilmour's "Arnold Layne" worldwide online contest, and was ranked among the top ten best versions for Syd Barrett's 1967 song. 2008 saw the release of In Between Dust Conditions album and the Walking The Valley EP by the net label Sinewave. In 2009 the band released a new EP - Sealand Fire -, and made a small tour in Canada, playing at the Canadian Music Week festival. The tour was followed by the documentary "Je Me Souviens...", directed by Sacha Leite Ferreira. The band also played at various festivals throughout the year - Festival Calango in Cuiabá, the two Sinewave Festivals in São Paulo, and Festival Extravaganza in Sorocaba. In 2010 they released a new album called Absentia, which received positive feedbacks from the local media. In 2011 they played in two Sinewave Festivals editions and released the video for "The Unsung Hero", which is currently getting MTV airplay.

Herod Layne is currently writing new material for an upcoming album to be released in late 2011.
