Euphemia Rise presents “A Rose Shattered” official music video

A Rose Shattered is the brand new video single of Belgian alternative rock project Euphemia Rise, and a second prelude of its upcoming album ‘Born a Cow’. The song came to life when songwriter Wim Lankriet was discussing the 60s Mary Bell murder case with a friend, who found in the mother of Mary Bell many similarities to her own, and shared some painful memories. The song lyrics were based on both stories, and picture a destructive relationship of rivalry between a mother and her daughter, leading to psychological torture, insanity and loose morals. Musically the track is a melancholy powerhouse of a tune, combining catchy melodies with heavy guitars and electronics, and mixing influences from atmospheric metal, gothic rock and space rock.
Euphemia Rise’s upcoming album “Born A Cow” is due for release on February 18th, 2022 via Epictronic


Named after a prostitute who became empress of Rome, Euphemia Rise was founded in 2020 by Brussels-based songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Wim Lankriet. A combination of many influences (indie rock, psychedelic, synth rock, darkwave, altpop) Euphemia Rise’s short songs are characterised by a dark mood and emotional vibe, catchy melodies, a combination of guitars and electronics, and bittersweet lyrics with sharp edges.

A debut single ‘Farewell to Greatness’ was released in September 2020. After this Lankriet devoted himself to recording the first full length album ‘Born a Cow’, and looking out for a label to release it. In November he signed with Epictronic. The official album release on all platforms is scheduled for 18 February 2022 and there will also be a CD edition.

Wim Lankriet is a Belgian songwriter, guitarist, vocalist and keyboard player. His signature sound is forged by merging classic songwriting with more unconventional elements. Between 2009-2013 he was the brain behind the psychedelic rock project Magdalena Solis, which released two albums and played at the 2013 Roadburn Festival.
