    well, my fav. Dutch band is mighty PHLEBOTOMIZED. they recorded 2 albums, 1 MCD and 2 demos and one 7'. i remember when i got their second demo "Devoted To God" in 1992. man... it was something new, diffrent... brutal death metal with very low growling and lots keys parts. sometimes slow, sometimes fuckin' fast. as i remember Terrorized choose "Devoted" the best demo '92.
    then they signed contract with MMI records and released "In Search of Tranquility" 7'. to sad i don't have this stuff, because i hate vinyls. one year later they recorded MCD called "Preach Eternal Gospels". almost 30 minutes great music, but i must say that production is bad :(
    in 1994 they signed new contract with Cyber music and released fantastic debut "Immense Intense Suspense". it was what i need. brutal as fuck low guitars, drums and deep growls + orginal keys and violins parts + melancholy acustic guitars and clean vocals... style? arghhh... maybe grindcore/doom/death? yeah, it sounds good ;)
    2 years later they recorded second and the last album "Skycontact". hard to say what exactly is this album, because they recorded something unique on metal scene. keys taken priority, more is clean vocals, electronics parts and acustic guitars... and lyrics like "I Lost my Cookies in the Disco"... imo in the year 2000 ppl could accept their music, but not in 1996. "Skycontact" was to modern for fans. it was one of reason why PHLEB split-up. second was poor distribution i think... anyway... for me "Skycontact" is their the best album and one of the best album ever... check this band or die motherfuckers!!!

    other Dutch band i like: GOREFEST, Altar, Sinister, Callenish Circle, Thanatos, God Dethroned, Pestilence, Severe Torture, old The Gathering, Solarsis, Centurian and of course great DETONATION :lol:

    Well, lots of new bands to check out then eh?? :D

    @Eldzik, check out Virulent & Pleurisy and let me know what you think, Pleurisy is quite melodic stuff with an unmistakable Swedish touch, you should like it. They just recorded a new album, they now have the Orphanage vocalist on vox. Virulent is good Morbid Angel Death Metal.

    :D Glad you like Pleurisy, they have been around already for a long time, but somehow never got the attention they deserved, a bit like Dead Head (you know them?). Maybe you should propose a CD-trade with Pleurisy too?? :D

    Virulent & Sarcofago? I have some Sarcofago on tape somewhere, or at least had... Anyway, I haven't listened to it in a looong time, so I can't tell really :). I do know Virulent sound primarily like Morbid Angel, Vader, Angel Corpse, Krisiun, Immolation etc. Those bands are their main influences.

    Ha, funny coincidence! I also regularly go to the Pit, Boothill and Stairway (was there last Friday), but from this info I can't really think of anyone I know who might be you...

    I am the brother of the drummer in Detonation (the guy on the right on the banner in my signature), you can see a picture of me here.

    Thanks, I checked your list too and noticed we have a lot of titles in common! Funny, we come from the same place (almost), have the same name, have a similar taste in music and we hardly know eachother! :D

    I have just updated my list again, though it still isn't entirely finished, there are at least another 160 CD's to add... :)

    BTW, I saw you own Detonation's "Lost Euphoria" MCD, cool! They released a 3-song promo CD last year, you can download it for free from their website in high quality 192 kbps mp3's, check it out!

    Last Sunday they finished the mixing of their debut full-length CD at Excess studios, Rotterdam. It will be sent to the printers tomorrow (Thursday) and the CD should be available in about 2 weeks. A song off the album has been uploaded on MP3.com, but it will take a few days before it will be available for stream/download there, but keep checking www.mp3.com/detonation and you'll notice soon enough when the song's available. Attend one of their coming gigs if you can!

    Coming DETONATION gigs:
    - Sat. 19 oktober, Babylon, Woerden (presentation of their new CD "An Epic Defiance", supports Blood Red Angel & Mortal Form)
    - Sat. 26 oktober, Phanta Rei, Vlissingen (met Hope Springs Infernal)
    - Sat. 2 november, So What!, Ede (met M-90's)
    - Fri. 8 november, Zaal Schoonveld, Vught (met M-90's)
    - Sun. 24 november, U-pop festival, somewhere in Utrecht (venue to be announced)
    - 14 december, Koornbeurs, Delft
