Black Box Revelation releases new album


Belgian rockers Black Box Revelation are back with Poetic Rivals, their newest album.

The duo, which consists of Jan Paternoster and Dries Van Dijck, took Belgium by storm with their debut, Set Your Head on Fire (2007), and their latest effort proves they’re still on top of their game.

Their blues-rock roots are all over this album, with hard-rocking drums and consistently overdriven guitars, even on their track, Losing A Friend, which sonically stands out from the rest of the album.

So does the title track, Poetic Rivals, on which the band brings the blues in form, style and content.

The rock-and-roll veterans are taking their album on tour, promising a whole host of concerts in all regions of Belgium, so be sure to keep an eye on their upcoming shows when you’re in the country.

Paternoster and Van Dijck have become household names on the Belgian music scene, and for good reason. Their latest record is an excellent continuation of an already impressive career.

Did you know that this career started when they were teenagers? Dries, who is two years Jan’s junior, was only 14 when the band get second place in Humo’s Rock Rally, a two-yearly rock band competition by Belgian magazine Humo.
