We said there will be a few surprises for those attending our event with Officium Triste and Isenordal on the 21st September in Antwerp, and here is one of them. Andrei Oltean will be joining us on stage to perform wind instruments on some of our key tracks and add his own ethnic flavour to our live sound!
Andrei is known as a talented Romanian multi-instrumentalist involved in a variety of bands, most notably the popular folk metal outfit E-an-na. Closer to our genre, he is also known for his heart rending instrumental performances on various Clouds tracks.
