Let's Start a Fire
‘Upon the crooked cobblestones between the belfry and the St. Bavo’s Cathedral in Ghent lies one
cobblestone that rises higher than others of its kind. Many civilians have been struck and stumbled
when they encountered the stone and have cursed it and the earth from wich it came, to damnation
and the earths from which it came. The brick makes no distinction between those that he curses
and those who he spares of the inevitable misery he inflicts when they meet him on their way. And
when an inattentive soul wanders his way meeting his doom, the cobblestones feels more like a
boulder than just a mere cobblestone. Arson is that Ghentian boulder.’
The origin of Arson took place in the spring of 2016 when members of various Ghentian metal and
screamo bands came together and wanted to tear away from the subcultures where they had been
in for years. Time for a something new. Time for good old fashioned screaming guitars, tight drums
and intense vocals.
Ghent 5-piece band Arson bring a hard mix of rock ‘n roll, punk, hardcore and southern rock.
