Flashback Interview from 1997: ELEGY (HENK VAN DER LAARS)


Dutch Metal band Elegy released some strong albums throughout the 90s and early 2000 and I did several interviews with the band. This is the first with founder and guitar player Henk van der Laars. After the 1995 album Lost the band went through some important lineup changes just as they had secured a new record deal. Hear Lars talk about the stressful situation and how it turned out great in this interview from 1997.

    Stig is the founder and the president of Metal Express Radio, based out of Oslo, Norway. He has been around doing Metal radio since the mid-eighties. In fact, running Metal Express Radio takes almost all of his time. Is it worth it...? "Most times, yes," Stig says. "My philosophy is to try to give all Metal releases a fair chance to get promoted in one way or another. As you can imagine, it can be an arduous task to listen through about 20 albums every week! Still, I know we have the best METAL dedicated radio on this planet, and that is a reward in and of itself. I hope one day the whole Metal community can and will make listening to Metal Express Radio part of their daily rituals! Yeah, right..."
