Free download: new version of 'Heilig Vuur'

In September we released a brand new version of our classic track 'Heilig Vuur'.
In appreciation of the fans who have supported the band over the past 25 years, we decided to make this single available as a free download on our official Bandcamp site.
Additionally, the single is available for a normal price from all major digital outlets such as iTunes, as well as for streaming on Spotify and YouTube.


Live album 'Into Battle' finally released

More than 20 years after it was recorded, our live album was released by New Era Productions and Heidens Hart. The album was released on cassette (limited to 100 copies) as well as on CD. The album is now also available digitally and physically from our our Bandcamp store.


Full discography now available on all platforms

Our full discography is now available digitally on all major platforms for streaming and/or download. These include Spotify (where on our artist page, you'll also find a bunch of cool playlists, including personal playlists of all members of the band), Apple Music, Google Play, Tidal, Deezer and Napster.

Split 7" with Sabbat released

In October, New Era Productions released a split 7" featuring ourselves and Japanese legends Sabbat. The Sabbat side features a couple of tracks from their show at Baroeg Rotterdam in 1997; our side features two tracks from our 'old school' set at the same venue in 2015 ('The Wrath Of Satan's Whore' and 'Aleidis').
Of course limited to 666 unholy copies so get one here before they're all gone.

Final shows of the year

In December, we ended the year with a couple of cool club shows together with our esteemed colleagues Heretic: one in the legendary Little Devil in Tilburg, the other one in AJZ Bahndamm in Wermelskirchen (pictured).
Setlists from these shows can be found here and here.


'Hell's Rock & Roll' 20th anniversary

Two decades ago, our legendary 'Hell's Rock & Roll' EP was released. In honour of this occasion, Orlok looked back on the creation of this record in this blog post.

We had a great time on the road in February with Barathrum and Blackdeath during the 'Fires Of Destiny Over Europe' tour. Check out highlights from these shows in these videos:
