As some of you already noticed, Ask is now for quite some time not our drummer anymore. Our gig last February was a very special fly-in show.
But he's only leaving us as Mondvolland's full time drummer. we know he will always be a big supporter of our band and we will support him with everything he does. Ask, thanks for all the good times! But you will be going to De Buik once...
That said, we hereby proudly announce our new drummer: we welcome Nico to the clan!
Our first gig with our new line-up is already scheduled: the 13th of October we will play Gelders Metal Treffen in Arnhem again! This also mean you can book us again.
