Holland’s PENTACLE have become a fourpiece again. Their newest member is Alex Verhoeven, the younger brother of Mike. After some intense months of rehearsing he had to endure his baptism of fire on a Swiss stage (it was his first gig ever…), did a great job and from now on is a full-time member of the band.
