Impressed by one of the IC 434 concerts in 1996, Dirk Ivens (THE KLINIK, DIVE and SONAR) decided to offer IC 434 a contract on his label DAFT (BODY) RECORDS. IC 434 released three albums on that label so far: WEATHERING SKIES (1996), DOGON DANCE (1998) and THE BANISHED (2002). The first album was re-released in 2006 on BREAKDOWN RECORDS. Nowadays, IC 434 is part of the INFACTED RECORDINGS family. This results in the new album called BACTERIATE (2008).
Nowadays, there's work on new IC 434 material again, still based on the legendary Korg M1 sound, besides mastering and producing work for a growing number of bands. So far IC 434 did remixes for BRAIN LEISURE, GRANDCHAOS, HOCICO (as OBEDIENCE, an earlier quite doomed side project), IMPLANT and NEIKKA RPM.
Current band members: Geert de Wilde (vocals & programming) - Nicolas Van Meirhaeghe (live keys & drums) - Bart Wynants (live keys).
IC 434 which stands for "International Catalogue no. 434", a scientific notation for a galactic cloud, called the Horsehead Nebula.
