RHEA guarantees that the Belgian guitar landscape will remain in good hands for the years ahead. The band from Ghent follows in the grubby slipstream of bands like Royal Blood and Wolfmother, which has got them a spot on the Main Stage at Rock Werchter 2022. While the band took a sabbatical year, guitarist Guillaume Lamont joined Tim Leyman, his colleague in Ramkot, an equally loud Ghentish outfit. The finalists of De Nieuwe Lichting 2021 make, in their own words, ‘ramrock’. This new term needs no further explanation. The sum total of Lamont and Leyman is Hideous: a rock monster that was formed one drunken night in the Charlatan music club in Ghent. They represent the preferences of both founders: deafening guitar music for moshpits.
