OCD048 : Limite / Mountains Inside


Cover art by Edmon Baudoin

OCD048 : Limite / Mountains Inside

First album for this young and talented Belgian band. Think DEUS, Marc Ribot, math-rock , touches of progressive rock and a typical Belgian mood in those ten clever and intense compositions. This band will become big!

Sinking stories, in life and dreams… “Mountains Inside” is an introspective rhapsody where dark chamber music meets alternative rock… Songs carried by free-flowing melodies with a psychedelic touch.

In December 2019, we recorded our first album “Mountains Inside”. Throughout this suite of songs, we are drifting along down tempo tremolo and acoustic guitar finger-picked textures; and the music occasionally veer into a harder, more propulsive sound, abstract psychedelia, grungy noise, or angular riffing.

All compositions and lyrics by Jordi Cassagne except Be Not Sad, composed by Benjamin Sauzereau, words by James Joyce and The Inside by Camille-Alban Spreng.


Kobe Dupont graduated the royal conservatory in Brussels in the class of 2017.
