“To resist is to create. To create is to resist.” It’s now been 9 years since SLIVER started rocking on Belgian, French, German and Luxemburger scenes ; with always the same idea : using art and creation as resistance, music as a weapon. “Their riot scream floating like a flag,” SLIVER continue to sing their ideas with rockin’ hardcore as a soundtrack (and also in paper “communiqués” distributed for free at gigs and elsewhere). The band has played more than 100 shows in Europe since 1999 (with Feverish, Death Before Disco, Guerilla Poubelle...) and has released 6 self-produced records and now works with the Belgian label we are all liars records (distribution: Bang!) which released their latest EP: “Kamikaze” (reviewed in Rock Sound, Rock One, Abus Dangereux, Shoot me Again, Metalorgie…). As for the texts and ideas of the band, they even crossed the Atlantic Ocean and were noticed by the American writer Chuck Palahniuk (author of Fight Club : “I’ve enjoyed kamikaze, especially the lyrics”) and by various associations such as the one responsible for the Antiwar Songs website. SLIVER are often compared to so-called committed bands such as Refused or hellisforheroes – two bands they had the chance to work with, on a fanzine and on a remix – and to bands whose attitude is more artistic than profit-driven (At the Drive-In, Thursday) and our influences come from literature (Chuck Palahniuk, Bret Easton Ellis, Murakami Ryu, Douglas Coupland), art (Banksy, XXX Prod, Eduardo Recife, Harmony Korine, Larry Clark), and essayists (Michel Onfray, Ruwen Ogien, William Morris, Arnaud Michniak, Peter Watkins).

20 something cigarettes
and a pen is all it takes
to change the world
to change anything that we ever wanted

the revolution is now
I am writing it down

and I know we can change it all

we can break walls with words
we can destroy nations with letters
create barricades of sound
music is a weapon

we can bring governments down
with drumbeats and notes
we can bring governments down
music is a weapon

sadly it’s not the only one
but music is a weapon
weapon of mass liberation
better than any religion

a revolution without dancing is
a revolution not worth having
to resist is to create
to create is to resist
