Klinik - Biography

1) Klinik is project of Belgian musician Marc Verhaeghen, who is continuing (but without "The") his own dark experiments (sometimes as a solo, sometimes with various other members, like Mark Burghgraeve and Thorsten Stroht in 1995, Stefan Mertes and Tom Claes from 1996 to 1998, and Nickanor in 2002), after Dirk Ivens, half of The Klinik, left the band in 90~91 to concentrate on his own project Dive.

Verhaeghen has been involved in several projects outside The Klinik / Klinik, including Noise Unit (with Bill Leeb and Rhys Fulber of Front Line Assembly), D.Sign / D-Sign (with Philippe and Eliane Fichot of Die Form), X10 (with Niki Mono, Marc Ickx of A Split-Second and Vidna Obmana), and Para (with his own wife Sabine Voss).

Original The Klinik were active between 1985-1990 (// 2003 // 2009-now). At first as quarter: Dirk Ivens (Absolute Body Control, Dive, Sonar, Blok 57), Marc Verhaeghen (X10, D-Sign, Noise Unit, Para), Eric van Wonterghem (Absolute Body Control, Insekt, Sonar, Monolith) and Sandy Nys (The Maniacs, Hybryds).

On first tour they called themself Absolute Controlled Clinical Maniacs, but this rather unwieldy name was soon dropped in favour of the shorter name The Klinik. Nys soon left the band to form Hybryds, followed in 1987 by van Wonterghem, leaving The Klinik as the "classic" duo of Dirk Ivens and Marc Verhaeghen... until 90~91...
