5 of the hardest rocking bands in the Netherlands

A while back I posted an article about 10 great Dutch underground bands. Those 10 were just the tip of the iceberg. There's a sea of bands out there, a lot of them bad, but luckily there's also some good rocking going on in the Netherlands.

Here are five of the hardest rocking underground bands in the Netherlands.

The Goods

The Goods

The Goods are one of the younger bands from Eindhoven Rockcity. Like all their fellow bands, they rock hard, but where Peter Pan Speedrock is a modern take on Motörhead, The Goods take their inspiration from 80s and 90s hard rock and hair metal.

Balls out hard rock!

The Heavens Devils

Their name inspired by the notorious bikers, they sound like a perfect band for a biker meeting. AC/DC meets Danko Jones. Some riffs seem to be taken a bit too directly from Danko Jones, but as they actually sound better than the latest Danko album, I don't consider that a bad thing.

Amsterdam music veterans from Jewel in the Mire and Rubber united to play some hard rock. They remind me a lot of Velvet Revolver. That's probably not because they copy them, but because they've got a similar mix of grunge and hard rock as Velvet Revolver.

The Bloody Honkies

Dirty rock from the east of the Netherlands. Hard rock with the swagger of bands as the Stones and the Black Crows with the urgency of the Stooges. Vocalist Lawrence sometimes sounds like Eddie Vedder without sounding like the countless Pearl Jam clones of the late 90s.

Tank 86

Instrumental stoner metal. While I still expect the vocals to kick in any minute, it doesn't get uninteresting. If you like Karma to Burn, you'll love this.

This is some heavy shit.
