VICTIMIZER haben einen neuen Sänger. Nachfolgend die Pressemitteilung und ein Statement:
„Effective immediately, Arnold Oude Middendorp (NETHERSTORM, ex-DEVIOUS, ex-ALTAR) is the new vocalist for Nijmegen, Netherlands based Death quintet VICTIMIZER (www.victimizer.nl; www.myspace.com/victimizernl). He is replacing Niels Feekes, who chose to dedicate himself to his family, due to the coming birth of his second child. Niels‘ final show with VICTIMIZER was at last December’s Eindhoven Metal Meeting.
VICTIMIZER’s new full-length ‚TALES OF LOSS AND NEW FOUND SERENITY‘ (DEITY DOWN RECORDS) recently was released in the BeNeLux (November 01 2010), and in Germany, Austria, Switzerland (January 14 2011). The album will hit the stores in the rest of the world on February 7 2011. So far this long awaited label debut CD was given nothing but praise by the international press.“
Gerard, Eigentümer von Deity Down Records kommentiert: „For VICTIMIZER as well as for their album ‚Tales Of Loss And New Found Serenity‘, Niels‘ decision came at the worst possible time and it affected the planning of band’s near future severely. I urged the band to find a suitable replacement quickly. VICTIMIZER then came up with Arnold, whom I know from his work with DEVIOUS (‚Vision‘, Deity Down Records, 2009), and who owns one of the most brutal voices to be found in the Low Countries. Arnold wasn’t asked to quit DEVIOUS, but unfortunately he has.“
