The (collective) subconscious, surrealism and ritual behaviour are topics that inspire the members of G∆RTM∆LEN. These are reflected in the music and on stage. The identity of the band members plays a subordinate role to the “gesamtkunstwerk” that they will perform. Through masks and outfits an interplay between image and sound is created. Masks suggest secrecy, change. The wearer gets closer to the gods, spirits and instinctive wisdom of the animal. Dark synths and (distorted) vocals combined with catchy rhythms, sometimes accompanied by a hardcore kick drum.
