We (and probably the other bands too) were contacted by a German guy to play at the V.V. No-one local seemed to be involved. I think there were only about 5 paying visiters (the rest were band-members). I don’t think we played there with ‘Breathstealer’ [as Tim Debrabandere suggested]. This is the flyer of that ‘Legion’ show in the pub.

Mike Coens, ‘Legion’ guitarist

In 1997 ‘Born From Pain’ (Limburg, The Netherlands) recorded a demo with Rob Franssen (bass), Wouter Alers (drums), Servé Olieslagers (guitar) & Ché Snelting (vocals). Same line-up did the recordings for their Immortality EP in July ‘98. The next time they were on was 2000-08-19.

‘Surface’, from the Ruhrpott-area, played metal-core. The band was Frank Knöfler (drums), Sven Pust (bass), Thorsten Kleine-Hegermann (guitar), Boris Pracht (guitar; later in ‘Caliban’) and Sammy Eftekhari (vocals). They did 2 albums on Mad Mob recs: To Millenium…And Beyond (’97) & Shadows Cast By The Light Of The World (’99). They played the fest on 99-08-20.

‘Anticipation’ (Germany) had a CD out (entitled Rude) on the German metal-label MDD (run by Markus Rösner).

‘Legion’ (Jabbeke/Knokke/Brugge, Belgium) were Maarten Berkers (bass), Mike Coens (guitar), Wim Jacobs (vocals; later ‘Blood Redemption’, ‘Crimson Falls’) & Frederic ‘Fre’ (DJ Flameboy) Flameygh (drums; ex ‘Burn Fight’, also briefly in ‘Vitality’). The band played typical H8000 style metalcore (“more deathmetal than hardcore”, references to ‘Deformity’). They did a (self-titled) demo (98) and released a mCD (Embedded In Darkness) on the British label Days Of Fury in 1999. The latter was with Dieter ‘Minx’ Meyns (later ‘Flatcat’) playing second guitar, and ‘Wulf’ (Kristof Dewulf) of ‘Deformity’ doing back-up vocals.

No idea about the Belgian ‘Conspiracy’…

‘Breathstealer’ was Davy De Schrooder (guitar; Distract zine; later vocals for ‘Disengage’ & ‘Maudlin’), Tim Debrabandere (guitar; later ‘Severance’), Maarten Berkers (bass; later ‘Disengage’), Mike Coens (drums) & Ken(ny) Jones (vocals; R.I.P.). They had a demo out in ’98.

I thought ‘Breathstealer’ and ‘Legion’ played together at the Vort’n Vis (the pub, not the festival) in 1998.
