To whoever loves silent films and instrumental rock music, the name We Stood Like Kings must ring a bell. This 4-piece band from Belgium is on the verge of becoming a reference act in live soundtracks to silent film classics. With piano as a central instrument, We Stood Like Kings builds up a wall of sound that blends soft, epic, intense and refined sections.

So far, We Stood Like Kings has composed a soundtrack to Walther Ruttmann's 1927 Die Sinfonie der Großstadt, which was released in 2014 on Kapitän Platte and programmed in already more than seventy cinema halls and rock venues across Europe. From mid-2015, the band will present their new project, a soundtrack to Dziga Vertov's 1926 A Sixth Part of the World.
