A big THANK YOU to our listeners on Spotify

May 4, 2019

In the last couple of weeks we went from the occasional double-digit number of Spotify streams each day to an eyewatering average of over 14. Friggin’. Thousand streams per month! Mind you.. We’ve not become “famous” overnight but we want to take the oppurtunity to thank everyone for tuning in to our music and adding it to their playlists!

To celebrate our first step towards the magical -cue drumroll- ONE MILLION streams (which is a loooooong way off, but still…) we’ve created our very own playlist for you to follow and share! So go ahead and crank this puppy until the neighbours come knocking! And then offer them a pint! Cheers!

Unforgotten Lore Release Tour

Since we’ve finished recording, mixing and mastering our new EP “Unforgotten Lore” it’d be a shame if we didn’t plan you a great big party to celebrate! You’re all invited to our FREE ADMISSION release party at Fort33, Leusden! And why stop there? We’ve managed to put together a little tour trough (bits of) the country  during January and February! Check our shows calendar for the tour dates and information!

There’s 7 tour dates on the calendar for now but we’re working on even more shows!

New Release Incoming!

October 10, 2018

It’s official! We’re releasing a new EP before the end of this year! It’s called “Unforgotten Lore” and it’s going to feature all the new songs we’ve played live recently PLUS a few tracks we’ve kept secret so far…

We’re throwing a RELEASE PARTY on December the 29th with all of you and some good friends from other bands as well! So make sure you’re there!

Amazing month (and a bit)!

June 13, 2018

We can easily say that we’ve had an amazing and busy  few weeks!

A bit more than a month ago we had an amazing evening at the Gebr. De Nobel, where we opened for The Rumjacks. It was awesome to see so many people turning up and party with us there! Two weeks later we visited Fredenna (in Germany), followed by Middeleeuws Festijn De Kelder the week after. At both festivals, we threw a big party with our fans, old and new!

We want to thank all of you for being there with us! We hope to see you all soon again!

For all three concerts we have pictures uploaded to our website. You can find them here:

While we’re waiting for this amazing show: did you feel the nice summer breeze this weekend? Seems like you need a cool shirt for that! And boy, do we have a special one for you! We have a brand new, VERY limited (single-order) t-shirt based on the cover of our new single “A Man”! Take a look:

If you have no idea what the hell kinda “new single” we’re on about: enjoy our new single down below!

Our new single is here!

March 5, 2018

It has taken a while to get to record and release something new but we proudly present our new original track “A Man”! It’s something a little different than what you may know from us so we’d love to know your opinions! As always the mixing and mastering was done by our very own Robin Janssens and the artwork has been created by our very talented bass player Dave Schrijvers!

Give the song a listen HERE on a streaming platform of your choice and let us know what you think! We’re working on more new material to bring to you in the near future so this is just a taste of things to come!

We’ve been nominated at the Bastaard Fantasy Awards!

February 13, 2018

Yes, you’ve read that correctly! Bastaard has nominated us for an award! We’re competing for the position of “Best Live Act in Holland and Belgium” so we’re keeping all available extremities crossed! If you think we should win you can cast your vote for us HERE!

The award ceremony will be held at March 3rd at the QBus in Leiden. We won’t be performing ourselves but we’ll be there to cheer on all the winners!

We’ve been busy!

October 17, 2017

We have been quite busy over the last few months. We’ve had a summer full of festivals but after that we still had some awesome shows on our schedule. We’ve uploaded a bunch of great pictures from our awesome gigs in Leiden and Rijswijk! Also: we recently celebrated fact that our lead singer managed to stay alive yet another year!

Even though it’s already a few weeks ago we remember our gig at ‘t Leids Ontzet ( also known as 3 Oktober ) like it was yesterday. Our “home” city of Leiden celebrates the anniversary of the liberation from the Spanish army that day. It’s a great excuse to drink (a lot of) beer and have a great time. And what better way than playing outside on a nice stage in front of ‘t Stadsbrouwhuis! And what a party it was! We want to thank everybody there for the amazing time we’ve had playing ( and not drowning in the canal while we’re at it). For an impression of the gig check our newest photoalbum here!

Maarten v Vliet

Two weeks after that we celebrated the birthday of our amazing frontman Maarten van Vliet. ( Hooray! ) This brings us to last weekend, where we were invited back to the marvellous indoor festival “The Gothic & Fantasy Beurs”. It was amazing to play at that stage again for you guys!

If you missed the gig, check a few of our songs below which was live streamed by the amazing crew of Celtcast! ( video in link below).
