Former PESTILENCE / ASPHYX singer Martin van Drunen, ex – HOUWITSER bass player Theo van Eekelen, GOREFEST drummer Ed Warby and both THANATOS guitarists Paul Baayens and Stephan Gebédi have joined forces in a new act called HAIL OF BULLETS. Their mutual love for old school Death Metal bands like Autopsy, Bolt Thrower and Massacre resulted in the idea to form a band together. They’ve already written quite a few songs and hope to record a demo / promo CD in June / July 2007. We’ll keep you posted!
Talking of Martin van Drunen… besides HAIL OF BULLETS and DEATH BY DAWN he’s also part of the reformed ASPHYX. The band is already confirmed to play this year’s Party.San Festival. Unfortunately though, guitarist Eric Daniels won’t be part of it, since he lost his feeling for this kind of music and therefore sold all his equipment. He lives a new and different life now. So, ASPHYX 2007 consist of: Martin van Drunen – vocals, Wannes Gubbels (PENTACLE / SOULBURN) – bass / vocals, Paul Baayens – guitar and Bob Bagchus – drums.
