Weesp, an alternative post-metal band from Minsk, Belarus. The band style can be described as a mix of heavy and recognizable riffing, groovy drumming beats, analogue synth sounds, and melodic expressional vocals. Even though band members used to call their style alternative rock, some music journalists describe it as “combination of metal and rock genres”, and some songs they define as nu-metal. With the release of the Black Sails album the band have defined themselves as ‘alternative post-metal’.
Weesp has announced some great news – this month the band will release its first acoustic album “Crystal Clean Waters”. The album will include 7 tracks from the previous albums (The Void and Black Sails) played with acoustic instruments, and two tracks that were recorded live during the presentation of the Black sails album in Minsk. The name of the upcoming album refers to the crystal-clear sound of the acoustic instruments. Weesp also promise to include a video, featuring the band playing a few of the new songs.
Pre-order and listen to a few already available tracks:
Band front man Lex Falco together with Michail (Mike) Zalucky (guitar) formed the band in Minsk when they both were studying in high school in the middle of the 2000s. Later, the rest of the members joined and, in 2009, the band finally announced its name – “WEESP” and immediately released the Taste of Steel EP.
Inspired by such bands as The Prodigy, Nine Inch Nails, Red Hot Chilli Peppers, Korn and Metallica, they soon formed their own sound: a combination of heavy riffs with melodic and classic synth sounds.
After the next EP release This will destroy us, Weesp performed at numerous concerts and festivals, including those in Baltic countries, CIS, Poland, Germany and Czech Republic. The band also released a few singles during that period.
