After All Metal!


  December 29, 2015
  It was 20 years ago today we officially launched After All’s debut album ‘Wonder’ at the legendary Cactus Club in our hometown Brugge. We played the club 6 times between 1995 and 2003 – including the launch shows of our first 4 albums.
  Watch the video for a little trip back in time. Who would have thought we’d be preparing the release of our 9th album 20 odd years later?
  Happy holidays!

  Team After All is complete again! We are very happy and proud to welcome drummer Bert Guillemont to our ranks. He was the first candidate to come jam with us and about 30 seconds into the first song, we knew he would be the right guy for After All.
  Hailing from the infamous H8000 hardcore scene, Bert helped shape a genre playing in legendary bands Sektor and Liar. The dude can thrash like the best and did we mention he's a heavy hitter?
  We are stoked to have found the right guy and look forward to slay many a stage with him in the future. Bert's debut show with After All will be November 28 in Oud-Turnhout.

  Drummer Kevin Strubbe has decided - with immediate effect - to step down from the After All drum throne to concentrate on other (non-musical) activities. We'd like to express our gratitude for his time and efforts with After All. Kevin joined the band in 2003, just in time for our first big European tour as support of Anthrax. The past 12 years have been an awesome ride and we truly wish Kevin the best in all his future endeavours. Godspeed! 
   In the meantime we are finishing up the recording of our new full album - which we believe to be our best, heaviest yet most versatile material to date.
   We are on the look out for a new drum monster. If you think you have the necessary chops and right attitude to join the Thrash Attack from Brugge, please contact us for more details. No retreat! No surrender!

  A haunting piece of video art, inspired by the relentless thrash metal pace of ‘Rejection Overruled’ and directed by Jeroen Mylle was officially released today. Enjoy!
  Last Sunday, After All guitarist Drieze already premiered the title track of the upcoming After All 10 inch EP during his weekly metal show ‘De Zwaarste Show’ on Belgian national radio Studio Brussel. (Listen to the show on iTunes – ‘De Zwaarste Podcast’.) 
  'Rejection Overruled' is scheduled for release through Sideburn Records/PIAS on July 3rd.

  The wait is over! After All are proud to announce the release of 'Rejection Overruled'. The new EP will be out on July 3rd, available exclusively on 10 inch green vinyl through Sideburn Records/PIAS.
  The EP contains the brand new tracks 'Rejection Overruled' and 'None Can Defy', along with a reworked version of 'Land Of Sin', which features a guest appearance by Andy LaRocque of King Diamond and Death fame.
  'Rejection Overruled' is the official sneak preview for the band's 9th full-length album, due for release later this year. To get the statistics right: 'Rejection Overruled' is After All's 8th EP, the 6th exclusively on vinyl and the very first on 10 inch.
  Never change a winning team: as for the previous album 'Dawn Of The Enforcer', After All tapped Dan Swanö for mixing and mastering duties. Once again, legendary Ed Repka came up with some truly mind-boggling artwork.
  More details about special pre-order packages will be available soon. 'Rejection Overruled' will also be available from After All's merch booth at Antwerp Metal Fest on July 3rd. Stay tuned!
  In 1990 - 25 years ago that is - After All played two shows at the legendary Vort'n Vis in Ieper, Belgium. The first one in January, was played under the band's previous name At Last..., the second one - in October - was the very first show the band played as After All.
  Recently, organiser Brob got in touch with the band and guitarist Drieze wrote down whatever he could remember from those early days. Check the Vort'n blog here and here.
