4 stars Belgium bands seem to fall into two categories: first we have the symphonic bands like Machiavel , Isopoda , Phylter etc... then we have , most thankfully, the other ones much more adventurous and complementary to Belgian Surrealism/Conscious Absurdism mood , Canterbury or RIO prog bands( among which Present, Univers Zero , Cro Magnon, Aksak Maboul, Finnegan's Wake etc... Hardscore is somewhat unique that they come from the northern (flemish bands are generally more symphonic) part of the country whereas most of the RIO and Canterbury bands come of the francophone side.

HARDSCORE falls in the second category (RIO and Flemish) , being an unlikely mariage of Zappa music , Kate BUSH vocals and songwriting , and percussions that the Moerlen brothers (from GonG and GONGZILLA fame) would agree upon. One can trust Greger Ronnqvist's description of their music as it is quite acurate but really you will be amazed by the Kate Bush singing , something he apparently failed to mention.
