CONCERT ANNOUNCEMENT: OPITTER, BELGIUM

Bookings are coming in fast! We will play the Ragnarok Live Club in Opitter, Belgium, on October 28th, 2022.

Did you know that LORD VOLTURE's very first live appearance in Belgium ever was back in 2012 at another club called Jan Hertog, and that this club was owned by the same people who currently own Ragnarok Live Club? Yes, we go way back with Koen and Jeke! At that time we opened for TIM RIPPER OWENS as the first of a string of dates in Belgium, France and Spain. So, naturally we look forward to this special gig, 10 years after our Belgian debut!

28.10.2022 - Ragnarok Live Club / Opitter / Belgium

NEW LINE-UP REVEAL

MAJOR ANNOUNCEMENT - Following the departure of guitarist Leon Hermans and drummer Frank Wintermans and the outbreak of the corona pandemic in 2020, little news has come from the LORD VOLTURE camp. However, behind the scenes we have been actively searching for the best musicians to fill the vacancies of lead guitarist and drummer. And now, we are finally able to reveal the new LORD VOLTURE line-up to you!

We proudly present respectively on guitars and on drums, the amazing Laurent Schijns and, the machine-turned-man, Erik Verheij!!

Laurent has played the guitar for over 20 years and took part in countless original bands, cover bands and other musical projects. His key trade marks, besides his long hair and good looks, are fast shredding riffs and epic guitar solos. The fact that the guitar tandem Paul Marcelis-Laurent Schijns is already well oiled from their previous engagements in UP THE IRONS will surely elevate LORD VOLTURE's six-string sections to unprecendented levels of metal magnificence.

Erik is best known from his work with the band SYSTEM OVERTHROW, but he has also occupied the drum stool in numerous other outfits. Despite his obvious friendly nature, Erik is the living embodiement of a true metalhead. A thrasher through and through, he pounds the drums with a ceaseless amount of energy compared to which a lightning storm would seem a tiny light bulb. He is truly a Beast of Thunder!

In the coming weeks, we will post more background information about both Laurent and Erik on our Facebook, Instagram and new Youtube channel. So make sure that you follow us and subscribe to our socials!

If you can't wait and you already want to learn more, head over to the Band page where you will be able to view all the new band photos and check out the personal profile of each band member.

Our first live performance with the new line-up is due for August 19th, 2022, at the Zeeltje Rock festival in Deest, the Netherlands. We'll be playing a mixed set with classics from all LORD VOLTURE albums. So make sure you get your tickets in time!

LORD VOLTURE are:
David Marcelis - vocals
Paul Marcelis - guitars
Laurent Schijns - guitars
Simon Geurts - bass
Erik Verheij - drums
