Joris Boghtdrincker Splits With Heidevolk

Dutch folk act Heidevolk announced that long time vocalist Joris Boghtdrincker has split with the band citing the need for a change. The announcement was made via the band's Facebook Page:

"Joris has left Heidevolk. His last show was the Pagagfest gig in New York. We want to thank him for everything he has done during the more than ten years that he was a member of the band. We cherish the experiences of the last decade and we wish him all the best for any future music adventure."

Boghtdrincker statated:

"After ten great years with Heidevolk, new horizons are beckoning me and I feel it is time for a change. I want to thank all involved in Heidevolk for the good times we had, and I want to wish them all the best in their future endeavours. To all the people I met and had the honour of performing for: it has been a pleasure and I am deeply thankful for all the memories. Wæs þu hæl!"

Heidevolk now starts the search for a suitable replacement for the low vocal parts of the characteristic dual clean vocals. No live shows will be affected. Stand-in vocalist Mickael will take care of the vocal parts for the live shows to come until a new vocalist has been found. More...

Metal Daze: The Metalcamp Diaries, Part V

... Continued from Part IV...

FRIDAY 8/10

9:00am. For the first time since arriving, I wake up without a sore neck. In profound relief and gratitude, I kiss the small-but-soft pillow I managed to procure at Kik yesterday.

Before this, my strategy was simple: I’d rest my head on the stack of clean clothes in my open bag at the end of my tent. But as the days passed, the stack dwindled, until I felt like a neck injury victim tied to a crude, makeshift wooden stretcher.

There’s a preparation and packing lesson to be learned in there… somewhere. More...

Heidevolk Reveals "Batavi" Details

Heidevolk will release the new album "Batavi" on March 2nd, 2012 via Napalm Records. The label issued the following statement about the album:

"Hediveolk now deliver their heaviest, most aggressive and powerful album to date: 'Batavi.' The band travels 2,000 years back in time to an era in which numerous Germanic tribes struggled for dominance against the Roman Empire in Northwest Europe, along the shores of the river Rhine. Caught in the middle of it all were the Batavians: the protagonists and namesakes of HEIDEVOLK's latest album.

"'Batavi' is a concept album that deals with the early history of the Batavian tribe: from its beginnings to its daring revolt against one of the greatest empires the world has ever seen. Set against the backdrop of war, alliances, intrigue, and betrayal, the nine songs relate the struggle of a people needing to redefine themselves in order to survive this turbulent time. More...
