September 29, 2015 Metropool Hengelo, The Netherlands
by Jeanny Petrocchi
Three brutal metalbands from the Dutch county of Overijssel performed last night at the Metropool venue in Hengelo. Songs played were about zombies, horror and lots of brutality, while next door there was another event going on where the audience was being spooked as well.
The opening act this evening was Rotten Casket, performing old school death metal in Swedish style. If you have not yet heard of these guys, read our interview with Rotten Casket (in Dutch) here.
Followed by Caedere, who play a mixture of US blast death metal and Swedish (old school) death metal. Last band that performed this night was Bloodsin, an old school death metal band with an agressive modern twist.
Baroeg Open Air, September 19th 2015 Rotterdam, The Netherlands.
By Jeanny Petrocchi
Baroeg Open Air is he only Dutch free festival with a variety of great performances at THREE (!) stages. There is music for everyone’s taste, from metal to electronic music. The visitors that attended this festival were mostly fans of the two big headliners VADER and VENOM Inc. It’s not the first time, nor the last, that Vader touched the Dutch soil. Poland’s death metal giants Vader took the stage right after the spectacular performance of the RYKERS. They showed why they are still a force to be reckoned within the extreme metal world. The guitars are clear and distinct, the drums are tight and powerful. The bass has a characteristic thunder sound. The vocal performance of Piotr is well executed and, again, straight death metal!
The headliner Venom Inc. did certainly not dissapoint! With a great clarity and unbelievable volume, these veterans performed with precision and high energy. They are currently touring in Europe with Vader. What to expect is a full and classic Venom set, followed by a brand new album. We have high expectations of this album. No doubt it will be venomously brutal and mindblowing! Baroeg Open Air was the first show of this tour.
We were fortunate to witness such great bands at this festival and for free. Therefore…. Horns up to all the volunteers for working their asses off. Without them, there was no BOA 2015! \m/

Occultfest 4-5 September 2015 Hoogeveen, The Netherlands
Photo report by Jeanny Petrocchi
Occultfest is a cozy festival where you can hangout with your friends, grab a beer or two or maybe more and meet new people with interest in metal music. This festival has become a tradition! There is nothing better than closing a hectic period of summer festivals at Occultfest. The field was muddy, but that wasn’t an obstacle to disturb the fun.
Bands we portrayed on Saturday were: Arroganz, Contradiction, Illusionless, Saille, Selfmachine, Tribal Spirits, Undawn and the co-headliners Exrementory Grindfuckers from Germany. The headliners at Occultfest 2015 were our own Dutchies of Carach Angren. And last but not least we’ve enjoyed the performance of Killing Cult Society, who wrapped up a once again succesful edition of Occultfest.
Once again, a big thank you to the organisation and the volunteers that nailed it this year again.
Click here for the photoreport of this festival. This is how they make a blast of fun! So be there next year!
