Not sure how this one really came about but the bands were mentioned in the V.V. notes. That night the bar was attended by Davy Bauwen, Tim Denutte, Steph Quintens, Christophe Deconinck & Karel Willemyns). It was probably one of the last shows before the end of the Vort’n Vis at the Kiekenmarkt

As I wrote before (2000-11-11) ‘Edgecrusher’ was a band that rehearsed in the Vort’n Vis. There’s also a guestbook-entry by them on 2000-04-22. Their vocalist was Davy Bauwen, a V.V. ‘shitworker’ (volunteer) that organised quite a few gigs there. They also wrote something in the guestbook on 2000-04-22… They played “melodic death-metal”. Besides Davy, there was Isaac Delahaye (guitar; also singer in ‘Panopticum’), Jo Decaesteker (guitar), Nico ‘Sientje’ Sinnaeve (drums; replaced by Karel Willemyns and then Arian Van Weesenbeek), Frederik ‘Freddy’ Vanhee (bass; replaced by Thijs Lanoye). ‘Freddy’ & ‘Sientje were both ex ‘D.S.A.’ and also played in ‘Retaliate’. The first ‘Edgecrusher’ demo Damnatio Memoriae (recorded by Michael ‘Link’ Maes) was out for a while and their second demo Impressions Of Mankind (2002), was with Michael ‘Link’ Maes on drums.

No idea who and where from ‘Modilia’ and ‘Cradle Of Dismission’ were…

I still have quite some photographic material of shows; I was always in the background taking pics. I also have some video-recordings of Vort’n Vis shows. I lack the time to get all that sorted… Some day, I suppose?…

Davy ‘nachtthoth’ Bauwen (co-organiser of the Ieperfest, vocalist of ‘Edgecrusher’)

I believe I wasn’t in the band anymore then. I was too much of a HC drummer. The others wanted pure metal. That’s when I decided to start ‘Retaliate’…

Nico ‘Sientje’ Sinnaeve

I don’t recall that much from this period (especially the recordings of the first demo are a blank – perhaps because I hate studios). I do know that ‘Edegcrusher’ began with ‘Siene’ and myself who started jamming with Jo. It was the intention to do something à la ‘All Out War’ but soon it turned out a lot more ‘metal’ than originally planned. Davy joined and after him Isaac. We did some shows and Davy plus myself organised a lot around that time. ‘Edegcrusher’s music was very technical. If I’m not mistaken we covered ‘Death’ and ‘At The Gates’… (Not sure about the last.) That was the reason why I quit and concentrated on ‘Retaliate’. Those technicalities were nothing for me: I wanted to go crazy on stage in stead of staring at the frets of my guitar. We combined the 2 bands for a while but the moment ‘Retaliate’ started to go well, ‘Siene’ and myself said thanks but no thanks.

I remember that Isaac also played in ‘Panopticum’ and in ‘Forcible’ but I’ve no clue about those other two bands.
