Dutch heavy metallers Martyr will be celebrating their 30th anniversary with a special night in their hometown of Utrecht. An exclusive show will be held on the 8th of September at Club Tivoli De Helling with fans, friends, and special guests.
Performances from the cult classic repertoire from the very first Martyr demotapes until the current “Circle Of 8” album (reviewed here) will be presented on stage by various artists including Martyr.
And what is more special: these cult classic tunes will be brought in the own style of the bands playing. Bands performing with Martyr will be: Nicolaj Ruhnow (Tokyo Blade), Izegrim (one of Holland’s premiere death-/thrashmetal bands), Gloria Victis (upcoming new Dutch metal act containing Martyr’s roadcrew members) and one more band yet to be announced.
The evening will be presented by Angel, former DJ of Vara’s Vuurwerk (one of Hollands most famous metal radioshows on Dutch public radio in the 80’s). DJ Liselotte ‘Lilo’ Hegt (Arrow High Voltage Radio), a Metal Market and an afterparty will complete this special event.
