on tour with "machine head" 


Dead Man’s Curse. A band all about playing heavy music, whipping the crowd into a frenzy and having a blast doing it! The music brings you rich, melancholic vocals and heavy tunes that undeniably reveal the influence of all-time heroes like Ozzy Osbourne, Guns ‘n Roses and Alice in Chains. Melodic, catchy and up-tempo when called for; Dead Man’s Curse has it all and is not afraid to dish it out in large portions.


Having played numerous club shows, festivals en sold-out support shows; DMC is building up a reputation as a force to be reckoned with.Not only was the band invited to play with renowned bands like Korn, Megadeth and Soundgarden, the one and only Lemmy Kilmister chose Dead Man’s Curse to open for Motörhead at IJsselhallen, Zwolle!

In October this year the band’s debut maxi-single was released digitally through iTunes and Spotify. The maxi-single was recorded and produced at RS29 Studios by Oscar Holleman, who has previously worked with Within Temptation, Megadeth and Krezip. The band will hit the club stages hard to win over more and more rock fans and to leave its mark on contemporary rock music.


No fancy haircuts and no goddamn eyeliner. Dead Man’s Curse solemnly swears to deliver straight up heavy rock and is set and ready to share it with all of you rockers out there!

Geert Kroes


In 2010 Geert had only one thing on his mind; starting a new band inspired by the bands he grew up with in the 90's. He quit his then current band and started writing demos. Soon he started thinking about the musicians he wanted to ask for his new project...

Kicking ass and having a blast!

MARK Weerts

drums/VOCALs didn't take long before he was on the phone with Mark who agreed to talk about it over beers at a local bar. Talking until the wee small hours they decided to share vocal duties. Geert also taking on bass and Mark pulling double duty on drums...

Serve Olieslagers


...the boys called Serve. Though he at one time swore never to stand on the stage again Serve agreed to listen to the demos Geert and Mark had lined up for him. It didn't take long before he decided to dust off his six-string to join the band....

Jaap Lagerweij

Lead guitar part of the search was for a lead guitarist. This wasn't an easy task, but after 7 auditions Geert, Mark and Serve finally found the bluesy schredder they were looking for; Jaap was a match made in heaven! And thus began the quest for world domination...

once upon a time...


New single available for purchase

new single

"shot to hell"

on stores now

'Shot to Hell' was recorded late 2012 at RS29 studios by Oscar Holleman and Daan Janzing. Oscar is previously known for working with such acts as Within Temptation, Megadeth and Gorefest.


The MAXI single contains three songs. 'Shot to Hell' is a hard hitting mid paced song with squealing guitars and a melancholic chorus line. 'Willow Tree' is a slow and melodic song with catchy hooks filled with despair. 'One Man Grave' is an energetic and uptempo anthem about a man wanting to get rid of his demons for good.


The band recorded a video for 'Shot to Hell' that has over 7500 views on Youtube to date. Video producer Jurriaan Hodzelmans will also be recording the video for 'Willow Tree' in the upcoming weeks.
