I'm exited to announce that I'm the new drummer of the band The Mad Trist.
Here is the official press release (in Dutch):
The Mad Trist vindt nieuwe drummer
The Mad Trist is weer op volle sterkte met de komst van drummer Roy Moonen. Moonen was eerder actief als drummer van o.a. Born From Pain.
Bassist Luc Hameleers: “We zijn blij dat we zo snel weer aan de bak kunnen en het is meer dan fijn dat we iemand in onze directe omgeving hebben weten te vinden waar we al jaren mee bevriend zijn”.
Kersvers bandlid Roy Moonen “Vanaf de eerste repetitie was er een goede klik. Het is te gek om aan het begin van het creatieve schrijfproces in te stappen en van dag één betrokken te zijn bij het ontstaan van het tweede album”.
De Maastrichtse band is druk aan het schrijven aan het nieuwe album dat naar verwachting begin 2012 uit zal komen.
This month the 26th of March we will play our first show with Kill Ferelli @ Azijnfabriek, Roermond. We will rock the stage with our friends from Sparrow Falls a.o.
I'm part of the jury for the Dutch band contest "Jonge Helden 2011". The winner of this contest will win free studio recordings and will be part of an international tour.
Upcoming weekend I will play a show with Chili Con Fusion at Snowevent in Austria. Mashup madness!
Yesterday we recorded drums for the last couple of songs of the upcoming full-length album of a new band which features Kelly (ex SAT2D) and Punto (Viberider).
My new Starclassic Performer B/B sounds great on these recordings!
My friend Ruben Reehorst got a letter from Photographer's Forum magazine in Santa Barbara,CA announcing one of the many portraits "Roy Moonen,drummer" in FGTS is in the final selection for an award and definitely included in PF's Professional Photo Annual 2010.
Check out his work and order a copy if you like what you see.
Viberider's new album "The Big Show" will be available

On this album I played drums and percussion, so make sure you'll check it out!
Next weekend I will play a couple of shows with Norman Kapoyos & The Swinging Mood Orchestra.
We will play at the Rock Academy's introduction day festival "The Inside Out Showcase" at 013, Tilburg and the same day we will play a show at Café Miles, Amersfoort.
Today and yesterday we recorded drums for the upcoming full-length album of a new band which features Kelly (ex SAT2D) and Punto (Viberider).
The songs they have written are really great
and with the drumsound we made today will blow your mind.
I have decided to leave Born From Pain.
I had a great time with these guys making music and touring all over the world.
But now it is time for me to move on and broaden my horizon.
I am taking a break from heavy music to do different musical things.
More news about that soon.
Today I did a photoshoot with Ruben Reehorst. I will upload the photo's later this week, so make sure to check out the photo section very soon.
New Viberider track uploaded "Kiddo's Cool like Fonzie".

Today I had a good time at the "Zildjian Artist Day" organised by Hoshino Benelux which was held at the Rockacademy, Tilburg.
It was nice meeting the people at Zildjian and a lot of
great drummers from the Benelux.
There are some really great cymbals coming up in early 2010.
Just got my new TAMA Starphonic Brass snare drum.
This snare drum sounds AMAZING! And looks great as well.
If you got the change check it out. It's a very versatile snare drum and got some really great new features.
You can find more info about my setup at the "gear" section.
Just got back home from our US / Canada tour. I had a great time overseas.
Thanks to the guys in Forfeit for their support during these 2 weeks.
In September Born From Pain finally return to the US! We'll be doing a 2 week stretch with Reaper Records' FORFEIT all along the East Coast. The Toronto show will mark our first appearance in Canada ever.
Check out the "shows" section for all tourdates.
KENDO BAHN ORCHESTRA
Named after the illustrious inventor of the detector for metal fatigue on long stretches of iron-composite, the Kendo Bahn Orchestra was founded. Coming from different backgrounds, the two members of the Kendo Bahn Orchestra excel in combining the sheer speed of metal, the limitlessness of free floating improvisations and a vast selection of electronic and digital processed sounds. The Kendo Bahn Orchestra is a shared project where an emerging drummer, already played at a range of international stages in different bands, meet an electro-experimentalist, profiling internationally in sonic arts. A language in sound and composition is being invented live in front of the audience, but always is energetic, dynamic and a bit frantic. Perhaps not the best answer to counter the everyday stress of an e-industrialized and globalized life, maybe even more chaos is added, but for sure the Kendo Bahn Orchestra will supply you a maximum surplus of dysfunctional energy.
Check out the "video" section.
Kendo Bahn Orchestra (Experimental Electro Noise)
Paul Devens: Electronics
Roy Moonen: Drums
The Count (Fusion)
Virgil Rerimassie: Chapman Stick / Bass
Friederichs: Saxophone / Ewi
Roy Moonen: Drums
More info soon.
Today we recorded percussion for the new upcoming Viberider full length album which will be released in early 2010.
Thanks to Peter and the Drumschool Maastricht for providing all percussion instruments.
I want to thank all the guys in TERROR, STICK TO YOUR GUNS and TRAPPED UNDER ICE for the great time I had during our tour for the last 7 weeks! And not to forget ChuckyEdge and Smackman for making life easier on the road.
Special thanks to Jeroen and Hoshino Benelux for their support.
Next 7 weeks I will be on tour with BORN FROM PAIN along with our good friends in TERROR, STICK TO YOUR GUNS and TRAPPED UNDER ICE.
Catch us along on one of the upcoming shows.
Tour kicks off in Essen tomorrow.
Check the "shows" section for the complete tour schedule.
Today we did some drumrecordings for the new upcoming Viberider full length album which will be released in early 2010.
Their new songs are really great and my new Zildjian cymbals sound awesome on the recordings.
Check the "gear" section for more details about my setup.
I recently had a meeting with Hoshino Benelux and I'm proud to announce as of now I'll be endorsing the following brands:
I'm very excited to play with these brands.
Tama is the first brand I started out with, so I'm very happy to endorse them.
Zildjian and Evans I'm equally happy to be working with because I've respected these brands for a long time.
From personal experience I know all of these brands to sound great and that they are road worthy and durable.
Today we recorded the drums for a coversong from a german band called "Slime" for their upcoming tribute cd at the NRG recording studio in Viersen. This cd also features bands like Die Toten Hosen and Kreator.
There is an article in the "Slagwerkkrant" Jan-Feb 2009 in which I'm featured. So if you are interested, check it out.
Thanks to Stef Broks.
