Welcome ‘Savages’ to our new website. Take a look and listen to our brand new music!
Sin Savage, previously known as ‘Nightmare BE’, is a Belgian hardrock/metalband, founded in 2011 by Kristof Michiels, Zan Geeraerts and Jasper Vanderheyden. This threesome had gained a lot of experience in a number of earlier projects and so Nightmare BE was born. Vassili Golfidis would join the band in 2013 with his crushing drums. After several gigs over the years they started making plans for a full album and so their debut album ‘Dirt’ was released in 2015 containing 11 self-written songs. A confluence of beautiful rhythmic, fast songs, incisive and sometimes brutal lyrics, interspersed with some softer moments. The album was mixed and mastered in the legendary Sierra Studio in Athens. They were accompanied by Akis Golfidis, who has years of experience with producing albums of many famous bands and artists.
In 2018, Kristof decided to part ways with the band. Soon Andreas Timmerman would join the band and man, he could play! The band took a new start and went back into the studio to record an EP. Four new songs were chosen. These songs were harder, faster AND stronger than ever! So they decided to make a change, to put a new name on the table: SIN SAVAGE!
Zan is a guitarist, not just any guitarist. He was so much into it that he started playing without any musical or technical background whatsoever. After his 12th birthday, he decided that he would no longer play by ear and did some serious studies, both classical and, wel, not so classical. Did I mention he sings? Yeah, he does that too. He is a true frontman who amazes the crowd with his roaring voice and screaming leads!
His early years are mostly a mystery but one thing that is known until today is that at age 5, he chose to be a drummer! At the age of 8, he was sent to the music academy where he first learned what a talented little guy he was. He started his first band with his brother at age 11 and, after that, he took part in another six bands in total before he hit it off on Nightmare BE. Years past by and now he brings the thunder, and the lightning, into Sin Savage!
Jasper’s mind was always set to playing music. As a child he wanted to be a drummer or a guitar player and at the age of 10 he found his dad’s acoustic guitar in the attic, a guitar player was born. He was taking guitar lessons in a local rock school where he met Zan. Soon they started jamming together and so their strong musical bond was forged. Jasper will give you killer riffs and leads that cut to the bone!
He is the youngest and newest member of the band. Starting in 2018, he could jump right in the recording process of the first EP of Sin Savage. He is the master of the 5 string bass but also kicks ass with his classical guitar playing! He will bring you the lower frequencies that will revive your long lost grandfather!
‘Dirt’ the debut album of Nightmare was released in 2015. This record was recorded in the Empyrean Studio in Mechelen. After a couple of weeks of hard work, a whopping 11 songs were recorded. A confluence of beautiful rhythmic, fast songs, incisive and sometimes brutal texts, interspersed with some softer moments. To the unexpected use of keyboard into one of the songs was added a text of striking emotional words. Listen to this album, get carried away by its imaginative and suggestive texts, and you will immediately understand why it is baptized ‘Dirt’.
As icing on the cake, the album was mixed and mastered in the legendary Sierra Studio in Athens. Before, none other than Robert Plant (ex-Led Zeppelin singer) and The Scorpions worked on their album in here. They were accompanied by Akis Golfidis, who has years of experience with producing albums of many famous bands and artists.
‘Dirt’ is available on iTunes and Google Play (Look for the band under the name ‘Nightmare BE / NightmareBE’) or on CD (to obtain at concerts).
