In 2020 Jeroen van Donselaar (guitar, ex-Agonized) relocated from Berlin to Utrecht. He soon teamed up again with Johnny (drums). Both previously played in the bands Bloodgod and Nuestros Derechos. This time they operate under the moniker Beyond the Pale.
Their first release is ‘Storm en drift’, recorded specifically for the compilation album in support of dB’s, Utrecht’s premier independent underground venue that is in dire straits.
Frank van Boven (Disquiet, ex-Bloodgod) was asked as guest vocalist. Folkert van Blom (Mass Audio), who recorded and mixed, also programmed the bass line.
The song is also an open invitation for potential band members to join the duo.
Johnny: “Our intention is to transform Beyond the Pale into a full-fledged band that can perform live on stage. So, if you are a (lead) guitarist, bass player or singer, please feel free to contact us!”
