Raffelesia is a Belgian metalcore band from Zeebrugge, formed in 2005 as part of the H8000 scene. Their style has also been described as death metal and hardcore punk.[citation needed]


In 2005, Bart Teetaert, Lazer Zec, Maxime Aneca, Nick Dapper and Jeremy de Schrijver formed the band. A few months later they performed at their first concert and quickly racked up a number of fans. Genet Records noticed this and signed them a record deal.

In May 2006, Raffelesia released their self-titled mini-cd containing 5 songs. Short after the mini-cd got released, Maxime Aneca got replaced by Christian Charles Borny (a.k.a. CCB). This change in the line-up caused more melody in their songs. In February 2007 Raffelesia travelled to Germany to record their first full cd named The Rape of Harmonies Studio with Ralf Müller and Alexander Dietz; respectively producer and guitar player from Heaven Shall Burn.

In May 2007 they released their album named Embrace the final day. The band subsequently played with such bands as Heaven Shall Burn, Maroon, Caliban, Sepultura, Aborted, Cro-Mags, Bleeding Through and Parkway Drive. During their tour the bassist Jeremy de Schrijver split from the band. He got temporarily replaced by Koen de Croo from Suburbia in Ruins, but he was soon replaced permantly by Nick Vyvey, who featured before in Omerta.

In June 2010, Raffelesia released their newest album titled In the face of suffering.
