Name: Koen Bakker
My name is Koen (a.k.a. D.J. Virginkiller) and since fucking 2004 you can enjoy or dislike my personal view on the heavy metal scene here at Lords Of Metal. The first hardrock album I bought was ‘Dynasty’ from Kiss and the first gig I visited was from Kiss & Iron Maiden in Leiden (The Netherlands) back in 1980. In the eighties I was grabbed by thrash, death metal and hardcore. Especially gigs from Kreator (@ Scum ’86) Possessed (@ Scum ‘87) & Testament (@ Dynamo Open Air ’87) are my souvenirs of the Eighties.
Nowadays I still visit lots of gigs and festivals and buy vast amounts of vinyls, CD’s and DVD’s. My acquired taste reveals itself in my favourite bands: Infernäl Mäjesty, Slaughter, Destruction, Kreator, Mercyful Fate, Possessed, Celtic Frost, Bathory, Death, Tyrant, Necrophagia, King Diamond, Beowulf, Uncle Slam, Legion Of The Damned, Lärm, Hellhammer, VoïVod, Nocturnus, Sacrifice, Carnivore, Massacre, Bulldozer, Judge, Minor Threat, Venom, Razor, Exumer, Onslaught, Usurper (Netherlands), Wehrmacht, Tokyo Blade, Massacration, Crossfire. Of course this is just a tip of the iceberg and I could go on for hours mentioning great acts.
I’m interested in almost all kinds of metal, from German “yodel”-metal, to NY hardcore until not so well produced black metal. I dislike nu-metal, hurdy gurdy sounds, everything Metallica released after ‘Ride the Lightning’ and people who camp on festivals because they really smell bad. I played in the Dutch hardcore band Disturbing Foresights back in the days and now and then I organize metal and hardcore gigs at underground café De Vinger and Paard Van Troje. I also write for
Headbangers Magazine (under the D.J. Virginkiller monnicker and Den Haag Centraal.
In daily life I try to be a good father for my gorgeous sons Joshua and Damian. I work at
City Hall in the most beautiful city in the world, The Hague and evidently I support my team ADO Den Haag!
