Ignored by the masses, loved by the underground, never simple, always unique: since it's first period of activity in the mid 1980's, Belgian band Aroma Di Amore has been revered as the cult group of Flanders. In 2009 the band made it's comeback, performing several gigs in Belgium and releasing Ongehoord (OS 011 LP), an LP of unreleased and rare tracks, and Samizdat (OS 020 CD), a CD of new songs. Carried by a deep bass, typically cold new wave drums, biting guitar riffs, and a shamanic voice, they make music that's both subtle and raw, with the occasional flavor of absolute madness. Over the years, bass players, a saxophonist, and lots of other musicians have come and gone, but the core of the band consists of Fred Angst on guitar, Lo Meulen on bass, and Elvis Peeters on vocals. The double CD Onverdeeld is an anthology of more than a quarter-century of musical output, containing almost all of the tracks that the band released on LP, as well as a few live tracks and four previously unreleased songs. Includes a 16-page booklet with pictures by Eric Didden, an extensive biography, and the extraordinary lyrics of Elvis Peeters. Mastered by Gerry Vergult (aka Fred Angst). Limited to 500 copies.
