Roadkill started out playing hardrock covers but found way more satisfaction in writing their own music.ROADKILL GENRES
After a few changes in the Roadkill line-up, Marco Hendriks joined Roadkill and that turned out the perfect formula for creating Heavy Metal. Roadkill recorded several demotapes like “Decider”, “Turned Page” and the “Pyramid” mini-CD, before devoting themselves to the newly born “Merlin” album.
“Merlin” is a 13 track, full length album and consists of the purest Heavy Metal. Unfortunately, Marco Hendriks died halfway through 2005 because of cancer and although we were all deeply saddened, Roadkill decided to keep the metal flame burning. We found a new frontman named Marc Mes (ex Wastelands) and while we were trying to get the band back on track, Roadkill guitarist Mario decided to leave us so we were back to square one. After numerous auditions, a guy showed up with a purple Ibanez, said his name was Jaco Dekker and was here to save the band.
Both Marc and "Jack" have proved themselves as very dedicated, totally musically talented, true headbangers and are, just like Marco was, irreplacable. With the troops back in line, Roadkill is currently touring to promote the "Merlin, Master of Metal" album and and the same time we're writing new material for the upcoming album. We'll keep you informed about any news through the Roadkill Homepage.
