Biography

With an average age of just 18, STEAK NUMBER EIGHT is probably the youngest hard rock band in Belgium to enjoy genuine national success; At the age of 15 they won the HUMO Rock Rally, hosted by Belgium’s biggest rock magazine, (which had previously launched the Country’s biggest Belgian artist such as DEUS, Black Box Revelation and Milow), making them national treasures. Mainstream newspaper coverage, TV appearances and radio play resulted in fans of hard rock across the country, young and old, flocking to shows, which became a major talking point in themselves.

Attending a STEAK NUMBER EIGHT show, it’s easy to see why their fellow countrymen have taken such a shine to them. With a confidence and professionalism far beyond what one would expect from such a young band, STEAK NUMBER EIGHT’s live performance is more an experience than a show - enormous, hard-hitting riffs sandwiched between moody, atmospheric interludes, all set against an impressive light show, that have led to the Belgian media pinning its hopes on this young four piece, hailing frontman/guitarist Brent Vanneste as “a new Kurt Cobain”. It would be easy to pass off such accolades as hyperbole, but it is not an undeserved comparison, with the young band reminiscent of what a supergroup consisting of members of Isis, Mastodon and Killing Joke might sound like if fronted by a young Cobain.

With their debut album “All Is Chaos” released in Belgium, and appearances at all of the Country’s biggest festivals - Graspop, Groezrock, Pukkelpop to name a few - as well as local supports with the likes of Deftones under their collective belts, STEAK NUMBER EIGHT are now ready to show the rest of the world what they’re made of.

Armed with debut album “All Is Chaos” - produced by Mario Goossens (Triggerfinger, The Black Box Revelation) and mixed in Seattle by Matt Bayles (Isis, Mastodon) - a stunning live show, and a sound and attitude way too big for such a small country, STEAK NUMBER EIGHT are an exciting prospect, and one which may turn (metal) heads towards Belgium in the most significant way in its history.
