What more than a recording studio tucked with synthesizers and drum machines did we need? Me and Franky thought about how to continue with Axel his work, as the standard was set high.


We experimented, exchanged (the craziest) ideas and drank beer. But we managed to get it done and with a less professional approach as the pictures from The Colour Temperature.


The pictures are all black and white close ups of many of the gear that was used modelling the album, upstairs at Franky's, in his studio apptly called 'Bong 13'. The art concept had to continue with the colours, but with a little twist. Enough to start the year 2021 with The Cubic Temperature.

Axel Suetens should not be new to those who have been following Metroland from the beginning. He was the one making those fantastic pictures for the first Metroland album Mind The Gap, dating back to 2012. I cannot recall how long Axel and I have known each other, but it has been some time....


Pictures were taken in Mechelen (along with my buddy Jurgen Devry), Zaventem, and a minor rainy subset in Hasselt. We had some remarkable moments captured on these images, icey cold for sure, as we did the photoshoots during early winter of 2019.


Rest assured, the results, with Axel's use of very specific "colour gels" are quite stunning. I can assure you, none of the colour effects were photoshopped, they are truly taken with high sophisticated material, and expect far more concerning these pictures later on.
