The Mars Model was formed in early 2019, when 5 buddies with a love for punk, post-punk, wave, metal and goth rock decided to release their debut record Francobelga already after a few months of intense rehearsals. This debut disc was very warmly received by the press at home and abroad. Covid threw a spanner in the works, but the band stayed tough and after some smaller shows it was time for their second opus Sister Glory / Frozen in Time accompanied by two accompanying video clips.
The Mars Model did a gaggle of shows in a short time and a solid set at Sinnersday in particular proved to attract attention. For fans of Killing Joke, Magazine and everything in between.

SSIM SONATET III has all the paraphernalia of the emotional elevator, with its system of malevolent pulleys with well-oiled gears that rush into the telluric bowels of rivers of molten metal, where the mechanical vibration of the fluids enables the formation of a pharaonic Black Wave that never initiates its ebb.
Alix Van Ripato is a contemporary feminist witch who sings liberating incantations, creates reincarnative dances, invokes her personal idols and evokes her dreams. Her music can also be summed up in this phrase: “Music to dance without being judged”.(source: MAG4)
