“Scuzzy guitars, crashing drums, unabashed energy and depth of soul.”
That’s how U.K.’s Rock Sound describes Black Box Revelation. Brussels, Belgium may not be known for producing great rock and roll bands, but don’t tell that to 22-year-old Jan Paternoster nor his 20-year-old sidekick Dries Van Dijck, who have been playing together for a decade, already releasing two albums, 2007’s Set Your Head on Fire and 2010’s Silver Threats (recorded in London’s legendary Konk Studios) that established the duo as a serious force to be reckoned with.

To record album number 3, Jan & Dries took off to sunny California to work with producer Alain Johannes [Queens of the Stone Age, Chris Cornell, Them Crooked Vultures] in his L.A. home studio. The result,the aptly titled album ‘My Perception’, is Black Box Revelation’s most accomplished work to date.

A perfect mix of R&B-inflected garage-band rock that takes its cues from mid-’60s Stones and The Kinks to the most gut-bucket, electric delta blues evocative of Led Zeppelin by way of The White Stripes, The Black Keys and Black Rebel Motorcycle Club.
Black Box Revelation is just that… a musical revelation that can’t be boxed into a single category.
