Picture to re-start with Peter Strykes!

Holland’s oldest metal band Picture announces that they will pick up where they left of before the corona restrictions, but with new singer and old friend Peter Strykes.

Years ago, Peter already proved to be the perfect fit when he replaced Picture’s singer at a performance in Portugal when the band was temporarily without frontman. The relationship between Peter and the band has always been close and this way Picture can show their gratitude towards Peter for his efforts as well. Peter Strykes has more than earned his stripes in the rock business with bands like VandenBerg, Horizon and 1ST AVENUE. From 1ST AVENUE the 2CDs have even been released worldwide.

To warm up the fans for the Picture performances, normally starting again from the end of October onwards, Peter has recorded the title track of Picture’s 2019 released studio album WINGS with his own unique vocals on it.

Together with Peter, Picture will again provide their familiar fireworks, in a way only Picture can.

Listen to the track Wings with Peter here.

Metal meets Classic for Christmas Picture + Waldin Roes

This year for Christmas, I wrote with my band Picture and Waldin Roes a song for all of you, friends near and far.

A carefree song, without too many pretensions, a strong and gentle song, like a true Abruzzese, a song that you almost think is yet another bullshit but when you have listened to it well … intensely I mean … it stays inside you like that good wine that you were drinking.

A song about love, the one between people, the one of the heart, that pure feeling that we think is going to disappear, of course the period is what it is but what the heck, it will have to end.

A Christmas song written in one breath, like this sonnet that I’m sure Proietti or Sordi would have appreciated, written with a trembling hand and turned with little pretense because you know, at Christmas what we love most are surprises!

Phoenix Reborn

Live Bang Your Head 2019

Great festival performance at Bang Your Head 2019. New Images and sound from the upcoming live CD!!!

Sammy Shmoulik Avigal passed away

This terrible news reached us today (July 31, 2020):

Hello everyone. This is Shmoulik’s wife. I wanted to let you all know that at 4:58 he lost his battle and passed away. Please celebrate the man, the legend. Goodbye my love — we all love you.

Needless to say we are heartbroken by this terrible news. Sammy was a great friend, a great performer and vocalist. We are very proud that he was the singer in our band in 1982 with whom we recorded one of the best Dutch metal albums ever: Diamond Dreamer.
We will miss you and would have really wanted to do some tours with you to celebrate this album but it wasn’t to be.
Our thoughts and prayers go to your wife and next of kin.
Godspeed Sammy Shmoulik Avigal!

New singer for Picture

It is with sadness that we have to say goodbye to Ronald van Prooijen as singer of our band. Due to personal circumstances he will no longer be able to put enough time and effort in the band. We are however very grateful for the years we worked together and thank Ronald for the excitement and professionalism he brought to help Picture with our new gained success since 2016. We will miss him and his phenomenal stage presence.

Of course, this will not be the end of Picture. We will go on with a new lead singer: the Italian heavy metal vocalist Phoenix Reborn. We have met him through Appie’s Iron Maiden tribute band “IJzeren Maagden” where he is also the lead singer.

After one rehearsal we knew he was our man. He is very happy to join us and take his own musical career one step further. Picture welcomes him with great excitement, and you can expect equally great shows very soon.
