#Mad Monday Morning!

Who can help us decipher the kind words Permafrost gave us?



Translation below (beware the wrath of Google Translate) :

" It has been through the ages in the nobility that has been nail the excitement yeast. Therefore, the choice of the band name Mad Baron is a good choice. The band is a quintet from the Netherlands who plays prog metal without keyboards but with two guitarists. When Nothing Comes True is called debut disc that was recently released. The disc is filled with energetic and subtle ballads, and the Dutch can not fall into any particular genre. The musicians in Mad Baron are reasonably young, but have backgrounds from many genres.

Mad Baron is reasonably original and distinctive, and they should be praised for it. The drummer has a background of punk, and it is a raw energy for the rhythmic signature. The guitars have occasionally been proven arrhythmic, but playful and tactical changes are in line. The guitars twist around each other in a neat but synchronous way, and they complement each other in a fascinating way. Vocal performs a varied selection of song techniques that enrich the music. The musicians are hungry to make more music in the future and not least to give concerts. This definitely seems like a band we will hear much more. "

Thanks for the love, Permafrost!

// Tiny cold seed, where is your voice? Where is your home and what of your soul? // - Broken Flower - The Mad Baron

"Bordering on self-reflection, this song is about and for all people who feel like this world wants them to be tall-standing trees, while maybe they want to be flowers themselves. You can't tell the seed of a rose to become an oak tree. That's why so many of us are broken flowers." , vocalist Frank explains. "Where is your own voice? You have something to say, you don't have to become the tree they want you to be. Speak up!"


"When nothing comes true" out NOW through Bandcamp, Spotify, Deezer, and iTunes music.

The Band

The Mad Baron

Hailing from both the south and the middle of The Netherlands, The Mad Baron stand firm as an emerging band within the scene.

They wear their genre-duality on their sleeves as their energetic ballads excite you and take you on a journey through what seems a dream, yet prepare you for what is to come - which is an exploding climax of sound, impressions, pounding drums and emotion.

Their legacy is filled with stories of self-awareness, brotherhood, the spiritual path of (emotional) awakening, and harmony. A healthy dose of darkness reminds you crudely of their inherent duality - a hunger for the light, while being close to consumation by darkness. They reflect your life back to you - a journey to your impact on yourself, others and the world around you.

Just how they manage to fall right outside the various genres, is nothing short of unorthodox. Barely metal, but rock 'n roll on steroids, the bandmember's individual influences stand at the dawn of their rocking back and forth between styles.Where Gijs' guitar, - while at times intentionally arhythmic and signature-changing - reminds you of metal the most, Youri manages to bedazzle and cover you in a veil of illusion, floating around, through, over, under, but most of all in marvellous synchronicity with Gijs' arrangements.Frank adds to the illusion and drags you in the dream, only to crudely awake you again when going along with Gijs' guitar - hopping in and out of the two with his broad range of vocal styles and volume changes. Florian's funk background only adds further to this, masterfully weaving together the arrangements. Sebastiaan provides the never-depleting battery, with the stamina gained from his punk background, he expertly manages to provide the rhythmic signature that makes sure the band flows without flying away.

In the future the band aim to develop numerous full-length albums, and to keep improving musically as a performing group; be it through gigs, live-videos, studio work, or touring again in foreign countries - the gents want to keep writing, and keep getting their message out to the world, out to the people.

The Mad Baron are:

Youri - Guitar
Gijs - Guitar & Backing Vocals
Florian - Bassguitar & Backing Vocals
Sebastiaan - Drums & Percussion
Frank - Vocals
