saf - 2000 / 2006:
SAF stands for Skulls And Flames
and actually started out as a three piece band called kaffer.
Mike d, Dave d and Edwin started this band with the hope of producing lots of noise.
Unfortunately they missed somethings and they decided that it was time to think about the band in a
more serious way, hell they could all play their instruments but there was
something not quite right. They decided to look out for a singer and a second
guitarist. They found Theirry as a guitarist who played with Mike d. in tuco ramirez and at a kaffer show they met Friso666 who was organising
the show and in desperate need of a new band, to scream in!
The first rehearsal with this new
band was amazing, everyone liked the noise that was being produced. It was
that old styled hardcore not unlike early suicidal and d.r.i. As soon as the
first songs were there we started looking for shows, which wasn't that difficult
with friso and mike being regular organisers for local hardcore shows. After
the first gigs the response was really good. People liked our style and most
important we felt we were doing a really cool thing. So we tried to arrange a tour through
Germany, Czech Republic, Slowakia, Austria and Belgium. It all worked out
fine, the people that came to the shows really liked us and we made a lot
of new friends. We toured three times in the eastern part of Europe and before
we knew it we released two 7"'s, one split 7" with our friends LOMB (Badman
rec.) and one full length 7" (Balowski rec.) We also visited the UK, France
and Spain a couple of times.
Saturday the 27th of October 2006 was our last gig at the acu in Utrecht city. This was one of the best gigs I ever played.
Everybody thanx for the 71 months short fast and loud thrash attack.
gigs: We had great tours, germany, czech rep., poland, slovakia, austria, belgium, france, spain, england, scotland and ofcourse the netherlands.
