We're River Of Souls, consisting of : Bart de Greef on vocals, Koen Spierings on drums, Mathijs v.d. Sande and me, Paul Beltman, on guitars. We're a Doomed Heavy Death Metal band from The Netherlands.


Who is your main inspiration?

Actually, any kind of metal  or rock. We mold that into a death/doom form!


What is your songwriting process?

Usually, I write instrumental tracks with places for vocal parts, and then Bart comes up with vocallines and lyrics, and after that we make some final re-arrangements together with the band's input.


What made you want to start in music?

Iron Maiden convinced me to do that


What is on the horizon for you?

Recording something new in Koen's home studio!


Who would you most like to collaborate with?

Colin Richardson


What is your ultimate goal?

With music ? No goals really. A roadtrip kinda tour through Europe would be fun, I guess. Other than that, a gig every now and then would be nice


If you could cover any song, what would it be?

Hmmm, difficult question, and the answer will change every day, hahaha !  Today I'd say 'Infinite Dreams' of Iron Maiden. And tomorrow I might say 'Suffer The Children' of Napalm Death, but it could as well be a song off the first Skyclad album, or something of Pink Floyd, hahaha


Tell us your funniest joke!

Hmm, I'm not good at telling jokes. And my jokes about German sausage are the wurst…
