I played my first concert in 2004 in “De Oefenbunker” in Landgraaf. The band was called ‘Tribe War’.

Most interesting event on stage:

Well, I really like playing on stage. Hard to choose most interesting event.
Once I smashed my head into the headstock of a guitar. The guitar player stepped backwards while I was head banging. “Raining Blood”…

First Metal album:

I got ‘Mutter’ by Rammstein and slipknot’s self titled album in the same time. Still like listening to those albums, but I’m not into nu-metal anymore. By that time I was 12 years old and started to develop my musical preferences, i think it got a bit of out hand…
