Lightning is one of the most spectacular displays in nature. Bolt temperatures hotter than the sun. Shockwaves radiating out in all directions. In Dutch, this deadly natural phenomenon is called “bliksem.” A fitting name for an electrifying five-piece thrash band from Antwerp, Belgium.
The storm began brewing when Jeroen De Vriese (guitar), Toon Huet (guitar), Rob Martin (drums and backing vocals) and Jan Rammeloo (bass) began crafting their high energy thrash 2.0. In their quest to find a singer on par with Chuck Billy or Dave Mustaine takes an unexpected and brilliant turn with the arrival of Peggy Meeussen. Her commanding razor-edged vocals slicing through the existing legions of goth or guttural female-fronted bands. Line-up complete: Bliksem starts to send shockwaves across the Belgian underground.
Bliksem answered some questions for us about Paaspop and themselves. You can read that interview here and do not forget to go see them at Paaspop on Sunday on the Phoenix stage starting at 1PM if you get the chance!
