MARTYR Short Info

MARTYR was formed in 1982 and debuted with the very interesting For The Universe in 1985, mixing technical riffing with a pre-thrash base.
Certainly an atypical sound for a Dutch band (or for that matter any metal band at that time), the album won a decent amount of critical and fan approval.
Their second album, Darkness At Times Edge, was released a year later, but the lack of promotion, coupled with the band's inability to find a large audience for their unconvential style, spelled the end of the band, the group breaking up in 1987.
The guys got together for a reunion show in October of 2001, and encouraged by its success, did some more reunion shows in 2006, and toured all over Europe since. By supporting great bands like Saxon, Trivium, Vicious Rumors, Flotsam & Jetsam , Lizzy Borden, Raven (and many more), headlining shows and festivals appearances the band has (re-)gained a very loyal fanbase of old and new maniacs enjoying the MARTYR eXperience.
MARTYR is presently very active, and have delivered 3 more albums “Fear”, “Cirle Of 8”and the latest release “You Are Next”
Martyr is seen as one of the finest live bands and a garantee for fun and quality music.

Rick Bouwman - Guitars

Rop van Haren - Vocals
Marcel Heesakkers- Guitars
Jeffrey Bryan Rijnsburger- Bass
