Lifecycle (Infantile #2)

This interview comes from Infantile zine which was done my Vincent ‘Pit’ Maes (who resided in my hometown at that time and was the singer of the youthcrew band ‘Instinct’). I only got this issue. Besides reviews, a few columns and photos, it contains interviews with ‘Eyeball’, ‘Sincerity’, ‘Spirit Of Youth’ and ‘Upfront’.

‘Lifecycle’ was a ‘new-school’ metal-influenced HC band from the Ieper/Kortrijk region (H8000 but not with that typical sound; because of the female vocals they reminded of ‘Shortsight’). The band consisted of Sofie Vantomme (vocals; co-founder Vincent Merveillie soon went on to sing for ‘Spirit Of Youth’), Karel Deweerdt (guitar), Steve Noyelle (guitar), Jurgen Degryse (bass; later replaced by Maarten Kinet, Peter Leuwers & Jelle Dobbelaere) and Jan ‘Relle’ Verhelst (drums; Jan Volckaert of ‘Resist The Pain’ stood in a few times during gigs; Vincent Tetaert joined in a later stage). They recorded a demo (There Is Hope Again) in 1997 (at Michael ‘Link’ Maes’ home-studio) and a few years later a mini-album (CD) entitled Forever…Until… (at 195 studio; released on SoberMind recs). The band never aimed at being a ‘real’ H8000-styled band, they just did their own thing and I value them for that…
