RAFFLESIA, named after Gighandi?s 1993 masterpiece release, was formed in the spring of 2005 at Belgian coastal town Zeebrugge. Once the search for the right people to enforce the RAFFLESIA machine was completed, their solid formation quickly made a name in the local underground scene. They combine their early European metalcore influences (LIAR, CALIBAN, MAROON, HEAVEN SHALL BURN ?) with the best American metalcore has to offer! You can clearly hear the more melodic riffing that bands like AS I LAY DYING and KILLSWITCH ENGAGE are so popular for. And some of the mosh parts are said to remind of Australian heroes PARKWAY DRIVE. tracklist: The Dead Tell No Tale Bow Down Autopsy Of A Blackened Soul Axiom Earth Stands Still The Tide Of Death New Dawn Rising Misery And Pain Divine Retribution Unvanquished
