Leiden (NL) was a killer sold out show and Saturday night was a cool fest in Drachten (NL) with our buds in Memorium from the UK. Want to say thanks to the bands Skeletal Remains and De Profundis. All great guys… Can’t say enough good things about both bands!!!

Of course thanks to the crew Darek, Kuba, Max, Jacek and of course the sound man Oscar!!!! Many thanks to Massive Music for another great tour!! Thanks to our management Gunter Ford and Alex Ford at World Entertainment for all their efforts!!

We ran into Brian Johnson from ACDC at the airport today after the flight home and we asked him about the rumors of him being on the new ACDC album and he said “Yes” and that he is ” Sick of denying it”. So that was a cool surprise ending to the tour.

South America is next!!!”
