What’s in a name? As a tribute to his deceased brother, Brent Vanneste – at age 13 – decided to start his own band ‘Steak Number Eight’, referring to a songtitle of his brother’s metalband Voidpoint.

Today, Steak Number Eight are a about to release their third album titled “KOSMOKOMA”.

Their reputation for their earth shattering live shows now draw huge crowds. Performances at Graspop Metal Meeting (BE), Pukkelpop (BE), Ghost Fest (UK), Paaspop (NL), etc ... saw the youngsters evolve into a well-oiled machine, capable of raising venues and festivals to the ground with the monolithic power of their music. Steak Number Eight broke free of the confines of their homeland and spread their wings further afield, hypnotising fans as they went whilst supporting the likes of Deftones, The Dillinger Escape Plan, Prong, Alice Cooper and Marmozets.

KOSMOKOMA, scheduled for release in the fall of 2015, is an eleven song behemoth that clocks in at just over an hour and seven minutes. For the mix of the album the band found a kindred spirit in triple Grammy-winning producer / engineer David Bottrill, known best for his work with Tool (Aenima & Lateralus), King Crimson (Thrak) and Muse (Origin of Symmetry).

Eros and Thanatos. Ying and Yang. Whatever you may call it : where hope meets desperation, where light meets darkness, where beauty meets ugliness is where we find our truest selves. Explore your subconscious and let yourself drown in the sounds of KOSMOKOMA. Destroy. And rebuild. Forever.
