Dit is Breaking the Chains


Marieke Bresseleers is Breaking the Chains! Marieke is the singer of Circle Unbroken, a new progressive metal band with a gothic touch. After a successful European tour their debut album ‘Vincere’ was released, which was highly appreciated by both public and press. Currently, Circle Unbroken are working on their second album. Furthermore, Marieke is also working as an actress. She started with dancing, music, and singing classes, and has since then gained an enormous amount of acting experience in various musicals and theatre productions. In 2015, Marieke has played the role of ‘Jenny Lind’ in the movie ‘A Quiet Passion’, directed by Terence Davies. The movie was released last year. How do you feel about your involvement in the project Breaking The Chains? ,,I was very excited when they asked me to participate. It feels good to be able to contribute to this project and do some good, even though it's not much. I hope my little part in this project will help some youngsters out there, together we can make this work!'' What musical influence/background will you bring into the project? ,,In this project, I will sing, full of emotion, powerful. Like a cry to the outside world, to wake up, to be aware and help.'' What can fans of your band Circle Unbroken expect from you and your band this year? ,,This year, Circle Unbroken 2.0 will be born. We will have a fresh new repertoire, a dark, more brutal sound and a more professional attitude. We are going all the way this year, a new album in the making, stay tuned!

Ruud Jolie is Breaking the Chains! We are very proud to announce that guitar player Ruud Jolie has been added to our growing list of amazing musicians participating in this project! Having been awarded no less than 19 gold- and platinum-selling albums and 6 TMF Awards, Ruud is most definitely a valuable addition to Breaking the Chains, where he will not only be playing guitar but will also participate in composing the songs. Ruud is most famous for being a member of one of the Netherlands greatest music-related export products – Within Temptation – which is one of the most prominent female-fronted symphonic metal bands all over the world. The list of awards they have claimed is endless: Conamus Exportprijs, 3FM Award, Edison Award, TMF Award, World Music Award, MTV Europe Award, and many more! Besides Within Temptation, Ruud is also the guitar player of the bands Maiden uniteD and ForAllWeKnow. With the latter, he is currently working on a new album, for which a Indiegogo campaign will begin soon. 1. What is the reason for you to join the Breaking The Chains music project? ,,I think it's always great to collaborate with different musicians. Not only for the musical aspect, but also for raising awareness of a cause like this one. So it's a win - win situation for me.'' 2. What will be your contribution to this project? ,,I will play guitar on this album. I've also contributed a song. It was a very old song that I wrote about 10 years ago but never found its way. Until now...'' 3. What can we expect more from you this year other than BTC? ,,Within Temptation won't be touring this year so I will have a lot of time to do other projects. I love doing all kinds of stuff. At the moment I'm finishing up the recordings for the second ForAllWeKnow album. Kristoffer Gildenlöw plays bass on this one as well and he did an amazing job again! It will be released later this year. I'm also working on some new ideas for my acoustic Iron Maiden band Maiden uniteD. We'll be doing a very special gig in Koninklijk Theater Carré in January 2018 (Maiden uniteD at Carré), so that takes time to prepare. And hopefully some other projects will cross my path...''

Bart Hennephof is Breaking the Chains! Bart Hennephof is the guitar player and one of the founding members of the Dutch metal band Textures. Debuting in 2001, their innovative style and sound has taken them all over the world on tours, playing in front of thousands of fans. Bart also works as a producer and in his own studio, Final Focus Studio, he's now working on the upcoming album of Breaking The Chains. When not playing or producing, Bart teaches and coaches the next generation of young metalheads at the Metal Factory in Eindhoven. In April 2017 you can see Bart and his band Textures as they tour through Europe, promoting their latest album ‘Phenotype’. Why do you want to be involved in the Breaking The Chains project? ,,It's an awesome project, on various levels - A great list of musicians, who write music for the same goal. All revenues go to B.A.C.A., Bikers Against Child Abuse. It's good to make people aware of this heart-warming organization. A great project with an extra importance, giving the music extra depth.'' It seems you have much more to do than just playing guitar. What is your role exactly and how do you manage so far? ,,I am producing the album: Directing the 30+ musicians that are involved, and combining all ideas/songs into one coherent album. Lots of cool music is already written and we are planning to record the songs this summer.'' Can you update us about the activities of your band Textures? ,,We're getting ready for our next EU tour which will start in April: After that we'll do lots of summer festivals. So this year is all about doing live shows!'' Photo by Ashley Oomen Interview by HeadBangers LifeStyle For more information, please visit the following links:
