drums – drums – drums


Quick note from the Road

Hello everyone,

Today two milestones will be met…with immense joy I might add :-)!!! Reason being: Wacken Open Air Germany!  I´ll be working with German rockers Mad Max at arguably Germany´s biggest Hard Rock Fest Wacken Open Air.  It´s a personal milestone but also one for the band Mad Max…. and there was much rejoicing!

Moreover, Mad Max will perform at the official Wacken Open Air After Party at the Headbanger´s Ballroom at Hamburg´s famous Reeper Bahn, coming Sunday. For more info please go to:  www.myspace.com/madmaxmusic

Music ís the Doctor!!!

My best, Hans in ´t Zandt












Very Busy

Hello everyone,

Though you may haven’t heard from me in a little while it’s because I’ve been very busy, just the same.
If you allow me an overview of what’s been going on:
Yesterday news came in:
MAD MAX Confirmed For Germany’s WACKEN OPEN AIR Festival

German melodic rockers MAD MAX have been confirmed for this year’s edition of the Wacken Open Air festival, set to take place August 5-7, 2010 in Wacken, Germany.

I’ll also be playing the Firefest in Brittain in Octobre aswell as the Z-rock fest.
Tommorow is the  cd – release party for Wicked Temptation whose debut album “Seeing Ain’t Believing ” I recorded over the course of last summer and autumn. The album is already going through the grapevine on Melodicrock.com for weeks, we’re very happy to say. Moreover, the album will be distributed by Sony Records. Nice one 🙂
But there is more to ventilate:
Last December my very first band Chinawhite released their 3rd studio album called “Challenges” which I recorded over the course of the last 2 years. It is published and distributed through our own label called Rock Company.
With Cooper Inc. we released last octobre our 2nd studio album called “Pulling the Trigger” brought to the public by CTM and Point Music.
Two weeks ago I recorded the drumtracks for  ex- Accept singer David Reece’s Bangalore Choir new album, which is yet to be titled and finished. However, it is expected to be released soon through Georg Siegl’s Metal Heaven. Melodicrock.com is spreading news about this one, too.
A week ago my website www.hansintzandt.nl  was entirely facelifted. Please check in and have a look around!
Soon my own recording studio in my house will be up and running with a big live room flooded in daylight of 7x7x3 mtr.  and a protools rig.
When I’m not giging or recording I teach drums at the Drummers Institute in Düsseldorf, reportedly one of the finest schools in Europe as well as at my own school, The Rhythm Syndicate. On top of that I father as of recently twó sons 🙂
On my website and my myspace site: www.myspace.com/hansintzandt you’ll find an overview of my working dates.
Hope to meet and reacqaint at the Frankfurt Messe.
All my best,
Hans in ‘t Zandt
