This Friday’s Guest DJ: BLACK NAZARETH

Black Nazareth

Menno and Daniël from the band Black Nazareth are this week’s Guest DJs!

It started in 2017 when Menno Gootjes approached Henry McIlveen with some ideas for a Metal/Rock album. As they previously worked together successfully in Threnody it was like a coming home to start writing together again. Even though this new project seemed faraway from the pioneering Progressive Metal they made with Threnody it was experimental in every way. With the passing of every session slowly the focus of the project started to shift in a more Rock-oriented approach. It was time to find some vocals! End of 2018 Daniël de Jongh joined the team. Daniël past experience with Progressive Metal heroes Textures and other Rock projects gave him a fitting profile for where the music was leading.The road to completion was a long one. Menno’s engagements with the Progressive Rock veterans of Focus kept him on the road for extended periods. It wasn’t until end of 2019 that Martijn Spierenburg joined the band. The sound needed something more and Martijn’s experience with the hit scoring Symphonic Metal band Within Temptation gave that much extra.

After releasing all of the songs as singles, Black Nazareth felt it was time to gather all of the singles into a mini album, along with a previously unreleased song. The band’s self titled album is a masterpiece of pure and adrenaline pumping Rock!

On the Guest DJ Show this Friday the guys will play their favorite and/or inspirational music tracks. After their playlist, we’ll play a handful of tracks off of their new release.

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..."
