RAKETKANON (Dutch for Rocketcannon) come in hard, shock, entertain, repulse and attract.

Latest album endorsed and engineered by the legendary Steve Albini

“Raketkanon are taking loud guitar music to new extremes with unhinged stage antics and made-up languages” – The Guardian

The band released their debut album RKTKN#1 late 2012, gaining them nationwide fame for their insane live shows. In July 2014, RAKETKANON went camping in Chicago’s infamous Electrical Audio Studio to record their 2nd studio album with Steve Albini (NirvanaThe PixiesNeurosisThe Jesus Lizard, …). RKTKN#2 was released in March 2015 and followed by 1,5 years of extensive touring in the UK, Germany, Switzerland, Austria, France, Spain, Greece, Slovenia, Poland, Czech Republic, Holland and Belgium.

RAKETKANON grabs you by the neck, drags you violently out of your comfort-zone, gets in your face and leaves an impression you won’t be able to forget any time soon.

“Over waves of up tempo, downtuned riffs, the reverberating vocals of Pieter-Paul Devos caterwaul across the top, like a huge rock skimming the water and heading straight for a striking blow on your temple” – The Quietus

“A must-see band. They blend noise-rock cacophony with sludgy, experimental psychedelia to create a truly apocalyptic impression” – Counteract
