Dante's Inferno (1991-1995)

Those Dark Days

Dante's Inferno is a Belgian Band that formed in the region of Aalst in the early 90's.

Against the spirit of the time, the band made an unconventional mix of ethereal new-wave, sharp post-punk and dark folk.

The group sound was influenced by Joy Divison and The Cure, but also by the poetry of Leonard Cohen, Slowdive and Dead Can Dance.

After recording a demo under surveillance of Twin Focus/ Guy Rooms the band played a lot of concerts in the alternative scene of those days.

At live concerts, except from the known rock-instruments, a flute, an iron barrel and bells were sometimes added on stage

The group made it a habit of wrapping the entire stage and audience in a thick fog.
