Deus (or dEUS) is an indie rock band based in Antwerp, Belgium, currently consisting of Tom Barman (vocals and guitar), Klaas Janzoons (keyboards and violin), St├ęphane Misseghers (drums), Alan Gevaert (bass) and Mauro Pawlowski (guitar and vocals).
The band, whose songs are primarily sung in English, was founded in Antwerp in 1989, but did not get its form until after Humo's Rock Rally of 1992. In the tour that followed through Spain, set up by Filip Eyckmans, they laid the foundation for their sound. Deus displays a bewildering array of influences, including Captain Beefheart, Frank Zappa, Big Star, Sonic Youth, Sun Ra and Mingus-style jazz, Leonard Cohen and the Velvet Underground. Consequently, they incorporate a wide variety of styles, including Pop, Folk, Free Jazz, Neo-Prog, Punk and Heavy Metal into their work. They became one of the most successful (and influential) Belgian rock bands ever.
