CHRISTMAS METAL SYMPHONY:,
A UNIQUE CHRISTMASTALE... THE METALWAY!

If you are bored of all those Christmascelebrations with your family; we hereby present you the best way to escape reality! Get your agenda’s out: on Sunday December 28. 2008 one of the finest metalvenues in the Netherlands, 013 in Tilburg, will present the first edition of a new metal conceptshow with a (Christmas-)twist named CHRISTMAS METAL SYMPHONY!

Vocalists and musicians like DORO, MATS LEVÉN (Therion), JOHAN EDLUND (Tiamat) IAN PARRY (Consortium Project), MARCELA BOVIO (Stream of Passion), FLOOR JANSEN (After Forever) and GEORGE OOSTHOEK (Orphanage) have already confirmed their presence, while more names will be announced shortly. They will be musically backed up by a 6-piece band and a 30-piece classical orchestra will perform the finest metalsongs of all times. This unique show will contain songs from all metalgenres from progmetal to rock, from death to speed and from industrial to NWOBHM....you name it...it’s all in the show!!

Christmas Metal Symphony tells the story of Jonathan. Jonathan is a loner and when he is confronted with his own (yet undiscovered) talents, the world becomes his oyster. He learns about life, about human behaviour and how to survive in a world that he never understood. Jonathan learns how to use his talents for the benefit of himself and of those around him....
Musical-director of Christmas Metal Symphony is JOOST VAN DEN BROEK (keyboardist & songwriter of After Forever) who joined forces with the MAGNUM OPUS ROCKESTRA. This impressive classical orchestra is unique in its kind, since all musicians are long term classical trained but real rock and metalfans by heart. It’s safe to say that they will deliver the icing on the Christmaspudding!

The heavy backbone of the show is a fantastic metalband, handpicked by Joost and contains some of the finest Dutch metalartists: KOEN HERFST (Drums / Epica), MARCEL COENEN (Gitaar / Sun Caged), JOHAN VAN STRATUM (Bas / Stream of Passion), SANDER GOMMANS (Gitaar / After Forever), JEFFREY REVET (Keyboards / Stream of Passion ) and, of course, Joost van den Broek himself also... boards.

Over the years, artists have written many conceptalbums and conceptshows; great stories and great unique songs. The team of Christmas Metal Symphony decided that so many great songs have already been written though the years that it would be a shame not to use them. For this reason, you may expect impressive performances of some of the finest metalsongs, by some of the finest international artists in a great Christmas setting in one of Holland’s finest concertvenues. What a great way to celebrate Christmas....

The first names are already confirmed, but we will announce them in the forthcoming weeks since we are still talking to more artists to complete the line up. Christmas Metal Symphony will be a unique event, so if your are a true “metalhead”...you can’t afford to miss out on this one!

Sander's update:

Christmas Metal Symphony Hi everybody,

unfortunately, I have to cancel my participation at the Christmas Metal Symphony in december.

Despite the great initiative, the great set of songs and the chance to play with some wonderful musicians I decided not to take part in this.
I have to be realistic in what I can and cannot do at this point, and although I do feel a lot better, I think preparing the songs on such short notice and rehearsing several times might take more time than I have right now with all the guitarlessons, HDK and After Forever preparations and other stuff.
The last thing I want is another burn-out, so I guess these are decisions that have to be made even if they suck.
The organisers knew about the chance I had to cancel, but still I'd like to offer my appologies for having to do that.

However, a GREAT replacer has been found in Frank Schiphorst, check out his playing skills on his myspace, he rules!!!
I'm sure that Marcel Coenen and Frank Schiphorst will be able to play the set extremely well, for all guitarfreaks: get your ticket, you'll be satisfied!!!!!

So, I'm still doing ok, just taking some precautions to make sure that it'll stay that way!
I'll probably at the Christmas Metal Symphony as a visitor, hope to see you there!

Cheers!
Sander
