Matt Bellamy with Berri Txarrak in London

A basque metal (early) / rock band from Navarre, Spain, that HyperChondriacMuser really loves (and thinks that they need more recognition).

The band currently onsists of Gorka Urbizu, David Gonzalez and Galder Izagirreis, a trio whose songs are sung in Basque. The band was founded in 1994 in Lekunberri. Their most known song is Denak Ez Du Balio, which features additional vocals from Rise Against's singer Tim McIlrath. Their primary influences include Nirvana, Weezer, Rage Against the Machine and more.

The singer, Urbizu, stated that he likes Muse, and they covered Time Is Running Out at least three times in 2006. Listen to one of their covers here.

The band also met Matt Bellamy in 2004 at a show they did at The Garage, in London.

Fun fact: A couple of days after creating this page, the band was announced as the support act at the MTV World Stage gig in Bilbao. What a great coincidence.
