Spoil Engine. Or how to drop a bomb with style. This 5-piece metalband
from Belgium/Holland started out in 2004, combining 90’s metal
influences such as Pantera, Machine head and Slipknot with postmodern
heaviness and soundscapes. Over the years, they evolved to a broader,
catchier and even more dynamic sound in the veins of Killswitch Engage,
In Flames and BMTH.
Up ‘till now, the band has recorded 3 full albums: ‘Skinnerbox v.07
(2007)’, ‘Antimatter (2009)’ and ‘The Art of Imperfection (2012)’. With
‘Antimatter’, Spoil Engine became the first Belgian band in 20 years to
sign with Roadrunner International, which led to appearances on national
radio (‘De Afrekening’), national television and larger venues/festivals
such as Graspop (4x), Pukkelpop (2x), AB, Vorst Nationaal and
Clubcircuit. They also directly supported bands such as Motörhead,
Volbeat, Prong, Killswitch Engage and Arch Enemy only to name a few.
