Interview with Bernard Van Isacker: ‘The Side-Line crowd is a true powerhouse!’

Yesterday Side-Line released session 6 in the by now famous free ‘Face The Beat’ compilation series focussing on the darker side of the music world. The compilation is available on Bandcamp for immediate download. For free or as a pay-what-you-want. This time our magazine’s chief editor selected 139 bands to participate after a submission round was launched in Summer of 2020. Just like last time, we took the time to sit down with our chief editor Bernard Van Isacker to talk about the compilation but of course also about other things including the unavoidable corona pandemic.

We again went talent hunting in the dark music world so you are also getting a great selection of starting bands from allover the world which often offer here their very first public release. You’ll also notice that we have a lot more bands on board this time than usual, 137 in total, and that’s also corona related as many if not all were confined at home and decided to record brand new material.
