Made in Memoria

In digital times, when the availability and sheer mass of music tends to bury you like an avalanche and the diversity does not inspire, but distract, DECENT PAINT BOX stick to their roots and tell their own story. A story wrapped in the musical fusion of alternative rock, post-hardcore and emo core garnished with selectively dosed synths. Their music crosses the borders of known genres, yet transports a certain familiarity with bands from the rock/alternative/emo scene of the early 2000s. Rich guitar riffs ‚that draw you in and take hold of your body‘, driving beats and a ‚sublime‘ mix of clean vocals and shouts. (Quotes: BeautyRockFusion)

Since their reunion in 2013, replete with enthusiasm and commitment, DECENT PAINT BOX began to write a novel and tell this story in their music. This lead to the release of their first concept album A GLIMPSE OF HOPE in summer 2015, which was successfully funded by a crowdfunding campaign on indiegogo. The album tells the story of two brothers that are confronted with dramatic incidents and discover a gate to a fantastic world, called Memoria.’Starting off with punchy, visceral and dramatic songs, the album slowly progresses and exhibits great aptitude in their instruments and playing style, a genuine ear for music, layering sounds, the effects of timing, vocal and musical phrasing and harsh vocal techniques.’ (Quotes: seeka reviews)

12 years ago, Decent Paint Box shared a stage for the first time and gained their first experience along side bands like DIE KAUM UNGLAUBLICHEN, AVID* and ILEUS. After one demo album and another EP, the band split up in 2005, providing the band members with the opportunity to strike a new path and develop further. During the last 2 years, DPB played with bands like ICARUS THE OWL, TO THE RATS AND WOLVES, CALLEJON, SKYWALKER, ABOVE THE UNDERGROUND, and THE OCEAN SCREAMS. 2016 will feature a new release and more beautifully executed music videos. Make sure to follow these guys straight to wonderland!
