Saturday May 24th, we were at the farewell show of Devious at the Metropool venue in Hengelo, The Netherlands.
After 13 years, the band decided to stop, but not without throwing a big party. Everyone who participated in this band for the past 13 years, had one last chance to shred, growl, slap the bass or hit the drums on the stage.
Deifecation and Extreem Eczeem reunited for this special occasion.
Jeanny Petrocchi shot a nice photo report
on this occasion.
The finale of the Dutch Metal Battle had two winners: Illusionless and Impalement. They demonstrated that metal music is alive and kicking in this tiny country on the North Sea.

Photo’s of the Disciples of the Void Tour of the Black Metal bands Sargeist (FIN) & Nightbringer (USA) (2014) taken by Metalphoto in Willemeen, Arnhem (March 23 2014) are now on line!
Nightbringer (USA) live at Willemeen.
This fine Underground Show was the first multi-national export product of the German organizer Drohende Schatten, who specializes in this genre. A venue packed with true lovers of Black Metal had come from all over The Netherlands to watch and listen to a selection of quite esoteric bands: Irkallian Oracle (Sweden), Sargeist (Finland), Pseudogod (Russian Federation), Nightbringer (USA).
Irkallian Oracle, was here for the first time and impressed with their psychedelic Black Metal, dressed in monkshoods and playing on a dark, red lighted stage. We present an atmospheric impression of two beloved underground bands: Sargeist and Nightbringer, who both are convincingly true to the old roots of BM.

Metalphoto: First of all thank you for this opportunity Andreas. Tell us about the new album: The Mediator Between Head And Hands Must Be The Heart
Andreas: Album came out last year, about October. We took about 4 to 5 months to write everything. We started working on it last year in February/March. And then already in June we went to the US to record the album with Ross Robinson, which was the producer of the Roots album we did back in 95. So it was cool to meet Ross again, you know, he really understands the band and the way he records is very much the way we like to record, very organic, you know, like jamming in the room and stuff. So it was a perfect choice. We spend like a month and a half in Venice beach at his house, Continue reading

Ondanks dat Martyr in April van dit jaar een nieuwe videoclip hadden uitgebracht, is het een beetje stil rondom deze Nederlandse heavy metal band. Dus, toen ik de mogelijkheid kreeg om tijdens het ‘Into the Limelight’ festival een paar vragen op ze af te vuren, greep ik die kans maar wat graag aan!
Metalphoto: Hoi, alles goed?
Rick: Ja alles gaat prima! We mogen niet klagen eigenlijk haha.
Metalphoto: Jullie videoclip van D.I. is over het algemeen goed ontvangen. Waarom hebben jullie eigenlijk gekozen om op deze manier het nummer vorm te geven?
Rick: Nou, ten eerste moet je denk ik weten waar D.I. over gaat. We schrijven ‘D.I.’ maar in wezen gaat het over Continue reading
