We still haven’t really taken the time to celebrate the release of ‘Underdogs of the Underworld’ yet, so we decided to organise a releaseparty. We ended up throwing 3 of them in 3 different countries.

Mark you calendars and get your ass over there for free shots, free snacks, free strippers and free Venom worship on what are to become the best nights of your life.

Our buddies from the mighty Spermafrost will support us and we’ll bring along some exclusive merchandise and goodies.

Best of all: the entrance is completely FREE!

Jimmy Blitzer is leaving Heretic

A 6 month world tour with Urfaust… Musical differences… A clash of ego’s…

Whatever the reason may be, after 2 years of wildness on stage, pumping that thunderbass, doing the crabwalk and stealing all our booze, the time has come for Jimmy to leave Heretic.

His final show with Heretic will be on the 17th of September at Torpedo Fest in Wermelskirchen, Germany. We would like to thank him and wish him all the best with his future activities!

Thomas Goat will be playing Ibanez guitars and strings exclusively from now on. Ibanez showed interest and Goat took the bait. This doesn’t mean he will be polishing his Ibanez Iceman, by the way… Muchos gracias to our friends at Hoshino Benelux!

“This definitely is the icing on the cake. I’m very happy to be working together with Ibanez from now on. I’m proud and that’s an understatement!”

Check out Thomas’ artistpage on the Ibanez website right here.

After being endorsed by Ludwig Drums, Tom Auf Der Axe now also plays Balbex drumsticks exclusively. The Czech stickmaker made a custom signature drumstick to celebrate the collaboration. A big thank you goes out to Patsticks, Balbex importer for the Benelux.

Tom’s very fond of his new drumsticks:
“Before I started using Balbex, I used to break a lot of sticks. At first I was very skeptical about the fairly young company Balbex, but after trying them I’m more than convinced by the durability, playability and overall quality of these drumsticks. You should try ’em yourself!”

Tom teamed up with the legendary Ludwig Drums and will be playing a Ludwig drumkit exclusively from now on. We’ve already rehearsed with this new kit and it sounds and looks absolutely awesome.

“I’m very proud to be playing Ludwig exclusively from now on. It was about time to play with the best there is, as a lot of my favorite drummers do and did so in the past. Ludwig has the quality, the sound, the looks and the legacy!”
