Detonation 10-year anniversary! Contest + special gig! :)

It's been 10 years since the first seed for what was to become Detonation was planted, so it's time to celebrate!

Ten years of Detonation
posted by Otto
2007-09-23
It was in the summer of 1997 Koen, Mike and Thomas rehearsed together for the first time. In the year that followed they only rehearsed about once a month, nevertheless writing a large number of songs, in a much more black metal-ish style than nowadays. One year later, Otto joined on bass. The first show was done at the end of 1998, so were the first recordings, and the band name was changed into Detonation. The rest is history.

Now it's 2007, and we can look back on 10 years of great fun, horrible hangovers, over 200 shows, several tours, 2 Mini-CD's, 3 full-length albums, broken equipment, sleepless nights, alcoholic frenzies, empty venues, packed venues, failing cars, near-death experiences and so on. Still going strong with the original band members, and more motivated than ever to tour and play as much as we can and create music the best we can.

To celebrate, we're doing a special show on the 26th of October in dB's, in our home town Utrecht. We'll be playing the longest set we've ever done, performing songs we haven't played live in ages, having some special guests on stage, and doing a number of covers. It's going to be lots and lots of fun, and it's an evening you do not want to miss, so be there!

We'd also like to take the opportunity to thank YOU for supporting us. Obviously it's impossible for a band to survive without people buying our CD's and merch, coming to our shows, and spreading the word about us. Plus having a few beers with you after the show is always great as well! So a big THANK YOU to all of you, we much appreciate all your support. To show our appreciation we've issued three contests:

International contest

1st prize: An exclusive limited edition LP-version of ‘An Epic Defiance’ containing extended artwork, a signed copy of our latest album ‘Emission Phase’, our first ever official release ‘Lost Euphoria’, a Detonation T-shirt and some bonus material.
2nd prize: A signed copy of ‘Emission Phase’, a Detonation T-shirt and bonus material.
3rd prize: A copy of ‘Lost Euphoria’ and a Detonation T-shirt.
To win, answer the following questions:

Which band name was used by the band, before they changed it into Detonation?
Which 3 dutch vocalists participated on Detonation’s debut album An Epic Defiance?
Send your answers and name to contest [at] detonation.nl with subject: International contest. The deadline to send in your answers is October 20th. Winners will be announced and contacted shortly after.

Dutch contest (for people attending the anniversary gig only!)

Same prizes and same questions! Prizes will be handed out at our dB’S gig the 26th of October. Answers can be sent via email (including name) to contest [at] detonation.nl with subject: Dutch contest. The deadline to send in your answers is October 20th.

Myspace contest

To thank all our friends on MySpace, we have a special contest on MySpace. Visit www.myspace.com/detonationnl for details!

I'm really sorry about that one




At least we don't see their faces, so they can stay anonymous
