We have some good news! Infantry has decided that your ears have had long enough to heal. Thus we have contracted a new officer of sonic destruction, and his name is Ronald van Baren. He will be joining the ranks as the new frontman for Infantry. Prepare for mayhem! Coming soon, to a town near you!!
After 10 years of service to the Infantry machine.. Our vocalist Mattis, has decided to lay down his arms, because he feels like he can not put in the time/effort that is needed. And felt like his drive was not there anymore.
He would like to thank all the people for all of the good times and adventures that he had during this time. Mattis will not disappear from our radar. He will continue to be involved behind the scenes.
That said. It also means that infantry is looking for a new vocalist. So if you or someone you know would be interested to join the ranks. DM us or send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org, and we will get in touch
Hell yeah! We have won the audience award of the Metalbattle 2016! \m/
The battle is fought: in the finale of the Metal Battle 2016, Infantry has won the audience award! Congratulations to Extremities, the winner of the jury prize. Also thanks to 13 Steps and Rise a Thousand for playing with us.
We would like to thank the awesome crowd for their energetic support for all the bands. And at last, but not least, thanks to the crew and organisation of Estrado Harderwijk for organizing this brutal evening!

The final battle is near
Infantry won the semi-finals of the Metal Battle! Our opponents, DooD, Irritation and Rhovanion, fought with honor. Unfortunately for them there could only be one victor, though we think that any of these bands deserved to win. Thanks for this awesome evening! And we look forward to future encounters.
Stichting Noord Geldersch Metaal wrote about the semi-finals:
Buitengewoon VETTE avond!!! Ik was zeer blij met de aanwezigheid van Dood. Maar goed dat is een persoonlijke voorkeur. Rhovanion leverde hun beste show ooit af en ik ben daarmee blij dat de band wel degelijk progressie maakt. Irritation is wat mij betreft een belofte voor de toekomst. Ik vind de door hun toegepaste techniek zeer origineel en toekomstbestendig. Het getuigt echt van visie. Infantry is de terechte winnaar dat ben ik wel met de jury eens, en hadden een steengoede show. Daar viel echt geen speld meer tussen te krijgen!! De bands zaten qua niveau echt dicht bij elkaar en dat viel ook bij het juryberaad op waar echt felle discussie waren. De metalbattle op het scherpst van de snede!!! Iedereen superbedankt voor de zeer fijne avond!!! EEN DIK WELVERDIEND APPLAUS VOOR DOOD, IRRITATION, RHOVANION EN INFANTRY!!!
Of course, thanks to everyone else who made this bitchin' night possible! We will see you very soon in the final battle for the title 'Metal Battle winner 2016'. Come and support, comrades! \m/
