SONAR is Dirk Ivens (Dive / Absolute Body Control / ex-Klinik / ex-Blok 57) and Eric van Wonterghem (Monolith / Absolute Body Control / ex- Insekt / ex – Klinik), with the aim to create rhythmical noise and dark soundscapes. A combination between analogue and digital instruments, the rhythms remind to working machines, the soundscapes to droning planes. The sound of SONAR is made to make you move in another way, to tune you into a hypnotic beat. It is a straight forward sound, wich goes further on « classic » industrial but never without an extra dimension of powerfull dynamics and tuned electronics.

SONAR is looking for a definition of danceable industrial and tries to discover this by controlling electronic devices. Headcrushing releases, a U.S tour with NOISEX and HOLOCAUST THEORY, a U.S tour with CONVERTER, a European tour with BLACK LUNG, a Benelux tour with ELECTRONICAT, followed by gigs on several festivals with highlights like Pfingster Wave Treffen (Germany), Dour (Belgium), Mera Luna (Germany), EuroRock (Belgium) and Infest (UK) has proved the potential of the band.
