AOTB is a Swiss band on the border between djent and deathcore sprinkled with inspirations from various other styles. Composed of 5 determined members, the band offers tracks combining technicality, groove and power.
AOTB is founded in February 2016 in Delémont, around the drummer Thomas Lachat and the guitarist Lionel Gerber, quickly joined by the bassist Nil Flückiger, the guitarist Pablo Lagares and the singer Jean-Marc Kottelat. During the first 6 months, Lionel and Thomas soon put their hearts into the work by composing the first songs of the group, followed by Pablo who then brings his important contribution. The band sees its first line-up change in February 2017, following the arrival of Franck De Luca on vocals. The writing of the lyrics of several pieces then allows the quintet to perform on several stages in Switzerland; at the "Corn'Rock" festival in Cornaux, at "Zelig" in Lausanne, at the "SAS" in Delémont, at the "Societ'Halle" in Moutier, at the "Undersound" festival in Undervelier and at the "Festilab" festival in Corcelles (BE).
At the beginning of 2019, AOTB starts recording its first EP "Mass Brainwashing" at "Greglerouxprod" in Delémont. The four-track EP denounces in its lyrics the problems of society in general, such as war, the indoctrination of children in certain countries or animal violence. "Mass Brainwashing" is released to the general public on October 14, 2019 and is available on all streaming platforms.
Today, with a set of about 15 songs, the band is more than motivated to perform on stage and is now working on the next album.
