Singer Anneke van Giersbergen can easily be called the hardest working and most versatile singer in the Netherlands. She will forever be mentioned as a singer of The Gathering but since 2007 she has built up her own solid solo career. That she is a musical chameleon is evidenced by collaborations with artists such as Devin Townsend, Anathema, Icelandic folk group Árstíðir, Napalm Death and BLØF.

2019 was all about the 25-year anniversary of Anneke‘s career, this anniversary was celebrated with 2 sold-out shows in the Effenaar in her own Eindhoven, and she was also rewarded with a Buma ROCKS! Export Award for most successful singer in the heavy genre. Anneke is currently working on a (semi) acoustic album, in order to give her fans a glimpse of what is to come, she sets off solo in March and April 2020 for a number of acoustic performances that will take her to special locations.

Anneke goes to Church is a series of unique performances in an intimate setting. Dates and locations are listed below.

On November 23, 2019 the third edition of Metalpraise will be held in Bonfire, Dordrecht (the Netherlands).

Metalpraise is organised bij Metalforce, an organisation that gives people the opportunity to attend an event and experience this special mixture of praise and metalmusic.

The combination of metal and praise music is not commonplace. A christian live band will turn praisemusic (Bethel, Hillsong Music) into metal tracks. This band consists out of six members including a male and a female singer. The songs played by the band have a variety in style ranging from extreme metal with a grunt to styles like metalcore and melodic metal. The songs will be performed in Dutch as well as in English.

Nordic Mission is VERY proud and happy to announce that GROMS (God Rules Over My Soul) will play at this year’s NordicFest in Oslo, Norway!

This is a dream come true, since GROMS was among the very pioneers of Christian Extreme Metal in Norway and Europe, playing their pure heavy oldschool death metal.
GROMS released their only album “Ascension” in 1994, and the band has not performed live or even met together since 1996!That is also why it was a hard task finding a crisp picture of these fantastic musicians. Do NOT miss this!

Nordicfest  will be held in Oslo, Norway from 1-2nd of November. Other bands playing are: War of Ages (USA), Drottnar (NOR), Hortor (MEX), Opus Irae (GER), Antidemon (BRA), The Weakening (SWE) and Sawol (FIN). Continue reading »
