As I am always looking for bands I don’t know yet, I was thinking about starting a new category at DutchMetalManiac. It will be a category where I will be promoting some bands, mostly bands which aren’t that big (yet). Some bands I found while searching through other blogs/websites, while other bands contacted me to promote them.
This time I have 10 bands for you.

Aenaon hails from Greece and was formed in 2006, their latest album was released in 2014.

I’m Tim van Velthuysen and I started DutchMetalManiac back in 2014. I’m 29 years old and I live in Nijmegen, The Netherlands. Of course, I like metal, but I can also appreciate other musical styles.
In addition to DutchMetalManiac I also have a personal website on which I’ll post various things that won’t fit on DutchMetalManiac, but might be interesting for you as well. It’s in Dutch though.
