HOUWITSER Parts Ways With Bassist, Seeks Replacement

After a five-year tenure with Dutch death metal veterans HOUWITSER, bassist Ramon Ploeg has left the band. He states, "I can't combine the band with my jobs anymore. Thanks to everyone who supported me and I've met in the last years! It was a great time! I wish all the guys of HOUWITSER all the best!"

HOUWITSER is currently seeking a replacement. The remaining members of the group say, "The bass player HOUWITSER is looking for must be experienced with live shows, have his own gear and can practice once a week in Zoetermeer. HOUWITSER is writing new material for their sixth CD and Doomstar is booking shows/festivals for the summer onto the end of this year. If you think you are the bass player HOUWITSER is looking for, you can contact them on info@houwitser.nl or houwitsermedia@gmail.com."

HOUWITSER was recently rejoined by its original singer Mike van Mastrigt. In addition, the group recruited Marten van Kruijssen (DICTATED, NIBIRUS) as its new drummer.

Vocalist Stan Blonk left HOUWITSER at the end of last year for personal reasons.

HOUWITSER's fifth album, "Bestial Atrocity", was released in 2010 via Sevared Records.
