We did a pre-show at the Vort’n Vis pub in 2000, on a Thursday…  The actual 2000-08-18&19&20 Ieperfest was in a school-yard. I just remember my band (‘Surge Of Fury’) and ‘Killed In Action’ played, I don’t recall who else played… It’s possible that ‘Retaliate’ was a that show but I can’t remember. At that time ‘Surge Of Fury’ was Emeric on drums, Dave & Sam playing guitars, John on bass and myself, ‘Tito’, doing vocals,… The line-up is different nowadays… I just remember the ‘Killed In Action’ singer’s name… Max…

‘Tito Fury’ [also played at the V.V. with the Liège band ‘Belief’ on 98-04-26]

‘Surge Of Fury’ (hardcore metal from Liège) did a demo-tape in 1999…

‘Retaliate’ was a band from the Ieper area playing brutal metal-core. Members: Frederik ‘Freddy’ Vanhee (bass; ex ‘D.S.A.’), Geoffrey Verhelle (vocals), Thomas Allegaert (vocals), Nico ‘Sientje’ Sinnaeve (drums; ex ‘D.S.A.’), Nick Rebry (guitar) & Frederik Plets (guitar). They recorded a demo in 2000 and released it under the name W.A.R. in 2001, and later (2002) a split with ‘Outcast’ (DHM recs): Hate Injected. This was probably their first show here. They were also on a poster for a gig with ‘Kingpin’ at the V.V. on 2000-09-16 (on which they were labeled “NY HC”). The line-up changed a great deal later on…

People of ‘Killed In Action’ (from Rouen, France) apparently were later in ‘The Elektrocution’… Maxime Prieux was the singer.

The pics are indeed pre Ieperfest 2000 with ‘Killed In Action’, ‘Surge Of Fury’, etc. I think also ‘Striker’ played [Brob: No mention of that in the V.V. notes]…

I believe we started out in 2000… In 2001 ‘Retaliate’ opened the actual festival.

The pre-fest before Ieperfest 2000 was organised by me and ‘Lorre’ [‘Striker’ vocalist].

It was a wonderful time and a super venue!
