In some weird way after losing my right hand due to an accident I decided I wanted to persue a music career. So I bought a Bassguitar, I learned to play it despite of my handicap. through coincidence i ended up as a drummer for my first "real" band. we sucked balls. haha. through a friend a joined a death metal band called Death's Bride until 2001 and later I started a band called Leech 54 (2001 - 2006)and Downward (2014 -2019). Currently I am the Singer for a band called Catharsis.
Music is a means to escape life. It has always been my way to vent frustrating about life in general and my to express my view on life and the world nowadays.
I lived the dream with my former bands "Death's Bride" and "Leech 54" Now I just play for fun and the love of music. I'd still like to perform once a month, the mind is strong but the body tells me it aint 20 no more.
I'd start by taking down the rich and share the wealth among everyone.
That would be Escape - Metallica, for a long time that was my personal soundtrack.
Too many to mention but here are a few: Metallica, Overkill, Testament, (old) Sepultura, Exodus, but also Billy Joel, Bruce Springsteen, Tupac and Eminem
My life and this fucked up world we live in.
No message really, I just want to create nice but rentlessly heavy or brutal music for people to enjoy.
Invigorated. I enjoy the interaction with the fans.
The glory days from when musiclabels ruled the world is gone. There are so many possibilities nowadays to promote thyself, it's insane. But it is also harder for bands to release and record albums professionally, cuz it's bloody expensive. Everyone can become a home producer and releases stuff over the WWW. Improve?... Don't know. Local scenes could get and deserve more attention.
Looks cool at first glance, still discovering all the possibilities.
Not getting things done that way I want it.
Yes, i go to shows when possible and I run a FB-page called "Belgian Metal Underground" for belgian bands to promote themselves.
Got an hour? ok, here we go: Exoto, Hell City, Voidian, Corpse mutilation, Emperors of Decay,...there are so many unkown awesome bands in Belgium
