My HeadBangers welcome from Apeldoorn, The Netherlands, with some Dutch Death/Thrash Metal:
This was just released 5 days ago. Can you hear the difference in growl vocals and throat singing my HeadBangers?
I have some bio on the band, there’s not a lot out there but I’ll give you what I’ve found:
Black Rabbit’s relentless rodents continue their lore by creating a back-bone to their concept. The chronological order of the album translates to the patterns, tempos and activity of the human brain during its sleeping process.
They implemented a story to this structure that follows Black Rabbit hypnotizing his victims to sleep (by reading to them in his book), in order to condemn them to hell. Before they go through the gates though, they first need to complete a number of tasks to understand why this is their fate.
After the first jolt of energy you feel when falling asleep, you immediately dive into the tragedy of a mad man’s destiny.
The band was formed in 2014. A wide spectrum of different influences of each band member creates its own refreshing and inspiring atmosphere. This range can be heard on each song. Not just between them separately, but within the songs as well. Embracing their risky but unique concept, they in a way give the finger to having a brutal name and being stereotypical metal.
Ever since ‘Warren of Necrosis’ was released, the band has widened their territory and have crawled through the burrows to gain their spot in the Dutch metal scene. Their single ‘Taken by the Devil’ marked the beginning of a new era and thus started the process of growing into the vicious, bloodthirsty rodents they are today.
“Taken by the Devil”
Let’s meet the band:
Hidde Hofland – Guitars (2014-present)
Jelle Brekelmans – Guitars (2014-present)
Max Hendriks – Drums (2019-present)
Nino Thomas – Vocals (2020-present)
Robbin van de Bor – Bass (2022-present)
I was to have an interview with the band, but as of this posting I haven’t received back the answers to my questions. They did tell me they did receive them, I believe the time difference has something to do with it. As soon as I receive them I will update the blog. I was so excited to get and interview with them, but as a blogger that’s how it goes sometimes, but you hang in there and move on.
I really love the sound this band brings. It’s hard, fast, and throwing in the throat singing with growl vocals is really interesting to me. I love both, I can only imagine the toll it takes on the vocal cords.
That’s it for this week my HeadBangers. Once again I apologize about the interview, it is disappointing but that’s life. I will update if and when I receive it. Join me next week for another band and another song. In the meantime don’t stand to close to the fire if you can’t handle the burn…..
