March 24 – BEYOND THE LABYRINTH (B) – Interview with GEERT FIEUW (Guitars/Songwriting)

Hello guys, here Rico, aka officer Nice from the Metal To Infinity webzine. I have some questions for you, hope you’ll enjoy them.

Officer Nice: Not everybody knows Beyond The Labyrinth, so please introduce us to the band and the history so far.

Geert Fieuw: In 2021, Beyond the Labyrinth will celebrate its 25th birthday. Starting off in an era where grunge and extreme metal genres were on the rise, with a mission to bring back the melody.

BTL play accessible Classic Rock with clean vocals and outspoken melodies. Driven by (guitar player/song writer) Geert Fieuw who is the mainstay of the band. 4 full albums up to 2019, quite some singles and video clips. The band’s credo is “Conceive, Believe, Achieve”.

Officer Nice: I know the band longer and so I noticed a big change into the line-up. You have a new singer, someone all Belgian metal heads should know. Tell us more about it. How did you guys manage this cooperation?

Geert Fieuw: Lots of coffee and cookies …. This line up is full of ages of experience Filip Lemmens (ex-Fireforce, ex-Double Diamond) has joined the band beginning of 2019 but was already helping out the band for live concerts end of 2018 and also performed a song on the 2017 “The Art Of Resilience” album. The relationship between Geert and Filip dates back from as early as 1998 or so.  What is often less highlighted: A bit earlier, spring 2018, BTL also had bass player Wilfried Kiekens (re-)join us. Wilf brings us ages of experience and musical vision. The relationship between Geert and Wilf dates back from as early as 1994 or so…. READ MORE
