Black Rabbit – Anger Machine – Defazer
Black Rabbit is a Thrash/Death Metal band from Apeldoorn, The Netherlands. Due to a lack of metal bands in Apeldoorn, Jelle and Hidde teamed up and created Black Rabbit. The two guitarists started writing songs inspired by Megadeth, Obituary, Death and many more.
They created their own thrashing death metal sound. People describe it as if Kreator and Carcass have had a baby. After some shows and a few line-up changes, Pieter (vocals and bass) and Max (drums) were added to the band.
Black Rabbit is currently working on their debut EP ‘Warren of Necrosis’ which shall be released on the 9th of January 2020. Stay tuned for more information!
Anger Machine is a five piece Metal band from the Netherlands formed by graduated guitar player Thijmen den Hartigh in the summer of 2015. He asks the same musicians he asked for his examination of the Conservatory to join his band, and a talented guitar student of his to play the bass. By the end of 2018, vocalist Tim Koole leaves the band. His position is taken up in the beginning of 2019 by Metal Factory alumnus Remus Stingaciu.
The band’s sound is modern, combining groovy parts with melodic and harmonic guitar playing. The catchy songs are composed in a clever way, creating variety, but still forming one whole together. Beside the outstanding songwriting the band’s distinctiveness lies in the modern vocals and the high-class guitar solos which both leave their unique mark on the sound.
On the 24th of September 2016 Anger Machine releases its first EP “Unbreakable”, featuring five songs. At this point the band also starts playing live shows in the Netherlands. Less than two months later on the 19th of November the band already win their first battle at the Bruut Battlefest.
The band established itself by opening for Pro-Pain in the Baroeg, Rotterdam, on August 27th, 2017. Shortly afterwards their single “Warpath” was issued, featuring a cover of Sepultura’s “Dead Embryonic Cells” as a B-track. For the “Warpath” single, the band decided to work with producer David Hazeleger, resulting in a significantly improved sound that does much more justice to the band’s energy and aggression.
On January 13th 2018 the band won the Noord-Holland regional heat of the Metal Battle in the P3 venue in Purmerend. Currently the band has started recording a new full length album of 10 songs. David Hazeleger will do the production of the album again to ensure continuation of the band’s recent gains in momentum.
“Thrash metal will never die.”
Dat is het motto van Defazer.
Geinspireerd door bands zoals Exodus, Metallica, Megadeth, Testament en Slayer maakt Defazer keiharde thrash. De muziek kan je beschrijven als technisch, hard en kwaad op z’n tijd waarbij je je nekt breekt tijdens het headbangen.
