BIO

MINDFOOL is a 3-piece rock band based in 

Arnhem (NLD) with repertoire in alternative 

rock. Important inspirational genres for the 

band are grunge stoner and post punk. 

 

The trio consists of vocalist / guitarist Ernst 

Brandsen, vocalist / bassist Joris van 

Glabbeek and drummer Dennis van den Born. 

Beside a musical connection its three band 

members found in each other an urge to bring 

realistic rock music back to life. 

 

MINDFOOL advocates a comeback of human 

element in music. Recordings of rock gods like 

hendrix and santana aren’t click tracked for 

nothing. Its subtle dynamics and tempo changes 

embed the tracks with a sense of emotion. 

MINDFOOL tends to seek for these boundaries 

without becoming inaccessible and sloppy.  

Listeners will find extreme rawness and intimacy 

in just one song.

 

Its front man Ernst writes songs with a 

strongly rhythmic oriented approach. 

Repetitive riffs are alternated with minor 

scales. Energetic percussions of drummer 

Dennis provide the tracks a proper pulse. 

Bassophile Joris drops a low melodic foundation 

with surprising effects.
