‘’Life is boring. Drastic changes must be made.’’
AFTER TASTE: ROCK BAND SOAKING IN DARKNESS
The four-piece that is After Taste provides a mix of industrial, gothic and doom metal accompanied by dance, trip hop and ambient elements. With atmosphere as the governing element it creates a unique blend of different musical styles. Despite its melancholic and wistful aura, it is ultimately dance music. Forming an uneasy but captivating contrast.
‘’Who says love is sacred? Anyone can fake it.’’
Dark music goes hand in hand with dark words. Romance and heartbreak are recurring themes. After Taste offers a view on the world’s most popular sources of inspiration. Mental health, family, soul mates, life and death… The story of love – warts and all – told by the haunting funeral voice of founding member Dave Meester.
Debut album “How to Fake Love” saw its release in September 2021. How To Fake Love is about – you guessed it – love. Love knows many forms, has ups and downs, and, like life itself, has a bright side and a dark side. After Taste loves exploring love’s dark side, as it’s full of creatures, weirdoes, demons and mirrors (mostly mirrors). In these mirrors is where we find ideas. Ideas that shape us as human beings. Ideas that spark a need for self-expression. How To Fake Love is that self-expression.
