In 1986 a lot of new things were happening in Belgian music.
A new scene created opportunities for young bands who wanted to try something new and one of these bands was The Arch.
Their music was an original mixture of EBM and guitars.
The Arch sent their first demo, “Revenge Revival”, to Dirk Ivens’s Body Records and the track appeared on the compilation “ Expo ‘87”.
Ludo Camberlin immediately felt the potential of the band and released their first EP “As Quiet As…” on Anything But Records.
Soon it was clear: The Arch had to focus abroad where their music was called “crossover”.
There were gigs in Holland, Germany and former Yugoslavia and their music appeared on alternative hit parades all over the world.
After 6 records it became a little bit quieter but 2 compilation albums were released in Germany in that period.
The Arch continued to create new music and their sound continued to evolve.
A brand-new album, “Engine in Void” was released on the German label Echozone, and everything went in the fast lane again : in 2012 there were gigs in Belgium, Germany, Holland, Spain and Hungaria.
Their new EP “Beating The Balance” will be digitally released on 03.05.2013
