DEAD HEAD (NL)
One of the oldest and best Dutch thrash bands. Formed in 1989 in Kampen, by the four original members Tom van Dijk (bass, vocals), Robbie Woning (guitar), Ronnie van der Wey (guitar), and Hans Spijker (drums). Their mission was to become the most intensive and brutal thrash-metal band Europe ever had seen. They were influenced by classic thrash metal bands like Dark Angel, Kreator and Sadus.
Since its debut record in 1991, the band has released six albums and one 10 inch. Their latest landmark is called “Swine Plague” (2017) and is one of their most agressive albums ever. We’d call it head-bashingly straightforward thrash metal!
