Over a decade ago, four youngsters, barely 12 years old, started making music in a shabby rehearsal room, somewhere in Flanders’ Fields, Belgium. The music was loud, hard, and uncompromising. This was the very early beginnings for Stake, under their long-term original band name ‘Steak Number Eight’.
At a ridiculous pace, the band kept producing new music and touring pretty relentlessly. Steak Number Eight had grown faster and bigger than they could have ever imagined: they were selling out Belgium’s biggest venues, played every serious rock festival across mainland Europe, and had been on the road supporting the likes of Mastodon, Dillinger Escape Plan, and Deftones. No one expected Steak Number Eight to call it a day. And that was never the intention of the band, but the name now felt mark the end for Steak Number Eight, two farewell shows were announced in their hometown of Ghent, and both sold out within a couple of hours. With the original line-up intact, they promised their metamorphosis would not simply be a change of name. Instead, Stake is a brand new chapter with an unseen energy, producing a unique hyper atmospheric and grunge-influenced melodic post-metal.
