Tim’s Favourite in a nutshell…


Tim’s Favourite brings you zenmetal: a unique mix of grunge, metal, psychedelic rock and profound lyrics, which leaves your ears ringing, neck muscles sore and mind meandering. For fans of Tool, Alice In Chains, Soundgarden, Prong, Metallica, Meshuggah…


Tim’s Favourite is a Belgian metal quartet, combining elements of grunge, thrash metal and progressive metal into their own hypnotizing blend: zen metal. Think Tool meets Alice In Chains meets early Metallica and then some.

The band’s unsuspicious name might put you on the wrong track about its musical contents, but as with all good names, there’s a story behind it. One day, founding father Jan Pauwels discovered his three-year-old nephew Tim with a pair of headphones on, listening to demos for what was to become the first album of his metal project. The name for the project was found! Some 20 years later, the circle was completed: Tim joined the band bearing his name!

Add the synchronicity of this family bond to a blistering rhythm section, layered harmonies and an explosion of raw energy on stage and you have the unique recipe for Tim’s Favourite. In 2023 the band will be releasing their fourth full-length album, Amaconda, of which the first single is titled A Deeper Advantage.
