Brought to life by Mathieu Vandekerckhove, creative backbone of bands as Amenra, Kingdom, SemblerDeah, Caan…, Syndrome was born at the very heart of the Church of Ra.
Syndrome’s latest, astonishing, work, NOW AND FOREVER shows art in his truest form: heartfelt, personal, pure and free. Wisdom from a father passed on to his son in an amazing moving journey through beautiful landscapes of sound, music and words. A narrative both deeply touching and shocking, melancholic, brooding but always hopeful and liberating. Experience the beating of a truly creative heart in every note.
