New drummer Lex Bekkernens

Mangrove is pleased to announce new drummer: Lex Bekkernens!

Lex is very talented, has lots of ideas and also got the ‘ old’  Mangrove songs very well. Having Lex on board means a lot of new young energy and good vibes! Although he is our drummer in the first place, he is also a very good composer/keyboard player/pianist added to that. Check his solo work out on his own website: www.lexbekkernens.nl.

We are very grateful to have had Remco Engels the last few years on the drums. Especially he added a lot of drum extravaganza to our live shows. Despite we had started working on new material, unfortunately it did not come to the completion of a new album during this period.

Let’s hope the stars will get aligned soon to get new Mangrove music out! 😉 We are up for it, we hope you are too!

More good news is that we will hit the stage again, on 1st of July our first gig with Lex will take place at ProgFrog! Give Lex a warm welcome!

See you there!

“…ein Hochgenuss…”

We are happy to read some great reviews on our first live DVD release:

“This is a splendid performance that certainly let me-one more time-relive that certain day in June of 2009. So thanks to the band and everybody involved who released this stunning concert on DVD” – Background Magazine (english language)

“…je weet wat je krijgt en dat is veel. Mangrove staat nu ook op de DVD kaart en mag daar trots op zijn.” – Lords of Metal (dutch language)

“Mangrove wissen ihre Kompositionen live stimmungsvoll und professionell umzusetzen. Vor allem die Bildregie mit lĂ€ngeren Motiveinstellungen und dem Verzicht auf hektische Schnitte bereitet mir Freude.” – Babyblaue Seiten (german language)

“Die DVD prĂ€sentiert die erwachsene Band in warmen Farben und ruhigen Bildern. FĂŒr die Band und ihre Fans ist die DVD gewiss ein Hochgenuss, der handwerklich und technisch rundum gelungen ist. – Ragazzi Music (german language)
