The heavy sound of Traversus passes through the regions of progressive rock and metal. The 4-piece group from the east of the Netherlands is inspired by bands like Leprous, Haken and Karnivool. Lead singer and guitarist Madelief de Groot voices sharp criticism of human behaviour and lays bare her own emotions. In September 2023 the band released its debut EP – guided by renowned metal producer Joost van den Broek (known for his works with Epica and Powerwolf). They played their first big show on ESNS in Januari '23 and are now ready to take over the bigger stages.
“Changing time signatures and muted notes are flying around, but the clear, hyper-melodic voice of singer-guitarist Madelief de Groot always keeps the music manageable and memorable.” - Kevin Pasman
