My all-time favorite band from Belgium is Kindred. However, all good things come to an end eventually, and Kindred was no exception. Shortly after Kindred's demise in late 1997, a couple of Kindred members got together with some friends and formed the first line-up of a new band, called Enemy Of The Sun. Things didn't work out however, and quickly the band folded again. A few months afterwards all 4 Kindred members got together again, added a 2nd guitarist and started working on Enemy Of The Sun material again, and this time things did work out. The band went into a different direction compared to their Kindred past and incorporated more noisy influences, different song-structures and ditched the metalcore. They released 2 records, the self-titled CD I posted here and a 3-song EP called 'Eclipse' (available here, also the person who requested this post). While I was personally not into EOTS the same way as with Kindred, EOTS certainly was a good band. After EOTS folded, singer Eric and bassist Walter formed a new band called troubleLOVESus, which took the experimentation level even further. I don't know what the members are doing currently, but I'm sure whatever they're doing, it will be good.

How strange! I was only listening to this yesterday! Never been able to get into EOTS though, much prefer Kindred, saw them live too, back in the day.
Apparently they've reformed and done some reunion shows recently.
