Stef has been voted best Dutch metal drummer and best Dutch drummer overall by the readers of the drum magazine Slagwerkkrant. The award show to celebrate this will take place beginning of September. This is the first time in the history that a metal drummer has won both awards.

Stef: “This is really bizarre. I’ve never considered myself as a drummer’s drummer. Of course I practiced a lot on drums, but not Donati-style. Most of the practicing happens on my knees and….in my head. 24/7, creating rhythmical- and song ideas. I am a reader of Slagwerkkrant since I was 9 years old, playing along Yes and old U2 songs. Winning these awards is really flattering, but doesn’t mean I don’t want to make progression anymore. On the contrary! Thanx to you all!“

Hey! It is Stef here. You can view the first play-through video I made for Sickdrummermagazine.com here. In fact, it’s the first video I have ever made! I chose the song Singularity of our forthcoming album Dualism. Some keywords for the drummers: polyrhythms, double bass patterns, quintuplets, ghostnotes. Enjoy!!

Revolver Magazine have launched the stream for Reaching Home, the second song we release from Dualism. You can listen to it here

We recently shot the video for this song with our bass player Remko Tielemans directing it. It was shot on the beautiful island Lanzarote, Canary Islands with its epic scenery. We hope to debut this video end of this month or beginning of September.
