Holland’s HDK, which, pre-simplification to its initials, was called “Hate Death Get rid of” began in 2005 like a part task for After Forever guitarist Sander Gommans, who channeled most of his pent-up aggression and negativity in to the songs that could constitute 2009’s Program Overload album, released through Months of Mist. Because of its saving, Gommans recruited bassist Peter Vink, keyboardist Joost Vehicle Den Broek, and drummer Arien vehicle Weesenbeek (Epica, God Dethroned, etc.), and also a bevy from the intense metal world’s best vocalists, including Andre Matos (Angra, Shaman, Viper, etc.), Amanda Somerville (Aina, Avantasia, etc.), Patrick Savelkoul (Callenish Group), Mike Scheijen (Sectarian), Jos Severens, and a good rapper in Paul Niessen.
