Ok, after a long time of "no news" we're back and kickin' ass again! Here's what happened in the last few months:

- In 2005 Orchrist will play as many gigs as possible to promote our new material. You can listen to a small piece of rehearsal material RIGHT HERE!

- We have a new guitar player who listens to the name Yves Neefs. This 19-year old macho from Gierle really knows how to do his thing on the 6-string. Welcome aboard Yves!

- After 4 months of being tied to a hospital bed Robin finally could go home again. He's completely recovered now and back to his "normal" behaviour. But this couldn't hold him to make a decision we all regret: Robin quit the band :(

Sad news... Our guitar player Robin had a real bad accident with his car in the night of friday to saturday. He slammed into a tree.. The first hours after the accident he was in a critical condition and the doctors were fighting for his live. But tough as he is he managed to pull trough. He's still in intensive care now hooked up to a bunch of machines. He suffered a lot of internal damage (liver, kidneys, pancreas..) and has a broken jaw.
We of Orchrist are wishing him and his family all the best and are hoping for a quick, complete recovery.

Wow, long fucking time I wrote something here.. Well, just 2 things.

First thing, I automatisated our guestbook so I don't have to copy & paste from emails anymore (like in the stone ages :)), the design still looks like shit but fuck it! But be careful, I've added an option so each member of the band can reply to your wining in the guestbook :)

Second thing, I've received an email from Deadsun records today that the CD's are finally finished and will be send around the world asap. Our band will get approx. 150 CD's ourselves so they will be exhibionated and sold on the site very soon.
