This was a concert organised by Frederic Driessens, a fan of black/death/doom metal.

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

‘Distress’ was the D-beat band (Alkmaar, NL) of ‘Boycot’-members Billy (here on drums) & Lennaert Roomer (guitar/vocals; was also in bands such as ‘Wartorn’ & ‘Solstice’ with Rich Militia), and bassist John P. ‘JP’ Kuiper (Billy’s brother). They did a self-titled 7” and 3 splits: with ‘Karma’ (on Tim Leten’s label Filth-Ear, ’96), with ‘Boycot (10”, ’97) and with ‘Mind’ (Resuscitate recs, ’98). The V.V. notes don’t metion the band so not enirely sure if they actually played this one but they were announced again on 99-09-11…

‘Sufficide’ was a death-metal trio from Amiens (France): Guillaume Larnicol (bass/vocals), François Bonet (guitar) & Marc Lechifflart (drums). They self-released 3 tapes between ’93 & ’96: Cranial Cremation‎, Putrescent Growth & Material Thrown Out.

‘Suppository’ was a grindcore band from Dutch Limburg. Boris ‘Bastard’ Cornelissen (vocals), Max ‘Goulash’ Duys (bass), Rutger ‘Ragout’ Noij (drums) and René (guitar) recorded their first efforts in March ‘97 (released on a split-7” with the Greek ‘Rakitis’ in ’98). The same year there was a CD with ‘Agathocles’ where Matty replaced René on guitar. More releases followed… They also did a German tour that year with ‘Cornucopia’.

‘Dead Infection’ was a grindcore band from Białystok (Poland). The songs on the split-tape with ‘Infected Pussy’ ‎- entitled Pornogore Live – were recorded at this gig. Playing here were ‘Cyjan’ Sławomir Cywoniuk (drums), ‘Tocha’ Tomasz Naliwajko (bass), ‘Mały’ Adam Andrzejczuk (guitar) and Jaro (vocals).

Kadath’ was a German grindcore/death-metal band from Aachen (with a Belgian drummer): Erling Aggebo. The others were Holger Friedenberger (vocals), Marc Leclerc (bass) & Markus ‘Mockel’ Mouhlen (guitar). They did a split-7” with ‘Immured’ (96), Twisted Tales Of Gruesome Fates EP (97) and a split-7” with ‘Evoke’.

Still have some good memories about visiting this show. Ieper was always a 2,5 hour train-ride from Mol where I’m living. Pretty sure none of my more punk-orientated friends were interested in this one, so I travelled alone, convinced to meet some familiar faces in Ieper. ‘Dead Infection’ was at their pinnacle in those days, with the release of their A Chapter Of Accidents CD, and I saw them several times in that period and even 2 days prior to this show in Eindhoven with ‘Last Days Of Humanity’, ‘Krisiun’ and ‘Inhume’. Their show at the Vort’n Vis was great off course. Still doubting as well if ‘Distress’ actually played that evening… I saw them so many times in those years. Superfriendly people. Same goes for the guys from ‘Suppository’ with whom we released a split-tape and toured in Germany the year before. The guestbook reminds me again of their good sense of humor…

Played there several times… Always great! We once got into an accident driving down there. The day with ‘Dead Infection’…

Boris Cornelissen, ‘Suppository’ vocalist

We were there to see ‘Dead Infection’…

Seb, ‘Sublime Cadaveric Decomposition’

I have quite some photographic material (92-97): I was always in the background shooting pics. I also have some video-material of Vort’n Vis shows. But I lack the time to get it sorted…
