Biography

There are three artists with this name:

1) Maudlin is a sludge band from Belgium. In 2009 Maudlin, willing to take over the world, becomes .maudlin (with a dot) because of existing bands with the same.

“In a genre overwhelmed with sad bands, MAUDLIN may be the saddest of them all. It’s difficult to describe feelings we ain’t familiar with. The sadness, anger and depression the band has gone through is reflected in the repetitive, yet very powerful song structure. Sometimes it feels like MAUDLIN only has one friend: their instruments. The relationship between their emotions and the songs they create is obvious. Lyrics are deeply affecting in their plaintive simplicity… it all could have been suicide letters. Scary and genius. Intense and sad. Powerful and emotional. Don’t be mistaken, above all MAUDLIN is hard, very hard! Intensity the way it should be.

How do we get to our sound? Many bottles of scotch, Syd Barret & pink floyd for the song stucture, led zep for the sound, neurosis for the hardness, cult of luna for the layers, “Le solitaire” by Eugène Ionesco for the bridge between our old & upcoming album, Dr. Freeman and his lobotomy patient “Sue Ellen Ionesco” for the storytelling, places we’ve been with Maudlin in Germany & Denmark & Slovenia & Italy & Spain & Holland & France & Belgium for the atmosphere that we bring in our songs…”
