In early 2023, a spark ignited the flames of Dreadmask, a melodic death metal band based in Eindhoven, with members originating from Greece, Hungary, and The Netherlands.

Fuelled by their shared passion for meaningful heavy music, Dreadmask wasted no time in making their mark on the scene. After each member had taken a break from previous bands, it was John Kourentas, Elger van Delft and Antonis Mougiakakos who initiated the band’s first incarnation. When Zoltàn Herczog came aboard in the summer of 2023, the group was settled.

The band released their debut EP, entitled ‘Thy Prime Dread’, on the 1st of May 2024, expertly mixed and mastered by Erwin Hermsen of Toneshed Recording Studio in Horst, The Netherlands.

Dreadmask, derived from the fusion of ‘dread’ and ‘mask,’ embodies the essence of fear and concealment. While ‘dread’ signifies the haunting grip of anxiety, ‘mask’ alludes to the veils we arise to shield our vulnerabilities. On the journey of playing the game of societal norms, we encounter our ‘Prime Dread’—our deepest fears.

Each member of Dreadmask brings their unique musical influences to the forefront, encompassing swedish death metal riffs, growling vocals, soaring melodies, progressive metal’s nuances, and black metal-inspired melancholy.

Dreadmask is;

– John Kourentas: Lead/Rhythm Guitars and Keys
– Antonis Mougiakakos: Bass and Lead Vocals
– Zoltán Herczog: Rhythm Guitars and Backing Vocals
– Elger van Delft: Drums

Dreadmask is here to unleash your Prime Dread!
Their debut EP marks the beginning of their journey to leave a lasting impression on the metal scene. Stay tuned for their live shows and forthcoming ambitious projects.
