Gnome is a 3-piece stoner rock band from Antwerp: guitar, bass and drums, and occasional vocals. With its odd rhythms and silly melodies, this mysterious little creature may look funny at times, but it can also kick you in the shins with some nasty dirty riffs and heavy grooves. Gnome started out in 2016 when 3 young but experienced musicians wanted to express their wilder ideas with lots of fuzz, crazy fast riffs, heavy sludge grooves and long winding structures. Music for the mind and the body, sometimes denominated “psychfuzzriffpartydoomstoner”. Things started rolling with gigs at Orange Factory, Riotfest, Kavka, De Ideale Wereld (on national tv station Canvas), shared bills with legendary bands Yawning Man, Desert Storm, Ten Foot Wizard, Bang!, The Grand Mal, Camel Driver, Red Sun Atacama and Hidden Trails and a DIY music video for "Blacksmith". First album "Father Of Time" was released in June 2018 and went on to collect over 200 000 views on the 666MrDoom youtube channel. Since then the band has been spreading its magic with gigs in Belgium, The Netherlands, Germany, Spain, Portugal, and the UK, while more international gigs and a second album are in the works.
