Let’s Welcome Our New Affiliates…Bastion

We did something different this time…we Let our man Michael Van Buuren tell us what Bastion is about and it’s future vision for the metal scene.

‘Bastion is a one man outfit from East London, South Africa, fronted by
Michael “Bastion” van Buuren.
With roots in the South African Nu-Metal band Neocon (Circa 2007) with brother and then band mate George “Draven” van Buuren (of Necropolis), Bastion opted to turn to the international metal community via online collaboration, in an attempt to revive the metal music scene in East London which had been laying dormant for more than a decade.
The vision of Bastion is to reach out to Metal lovers everywhere through meaningful music and lyrics, after all music in an international language which affects us at our very core.
With assistance from Chris Gedge of Mocha Metal, Gary Groves of Metal Maelstrom Coalition, George “Draven” of Necropolis and Shawn Snyman of The Metalhead Pub, Bastion is one step closer in realizing a decade old mission of bringing Metal back to masses.’
“Keep The Metal Machine Rolling ” ~ Michael Van Buuren

Let’s Welcome our new Affiliate:
To our new category
‘Studio Engineers’

We, at Mocha-Metal Merch had a ‘light bulb moment’ and thought we have musicians, instrument pioneers and solo musicians BUT what about the guys working in the studios! This led us to thinking ‘why don’t we get some Studio Engineers?’ into the mix (pun intended).
Without rambling on, let us welcome Michael Jensen Després, Studio Engineer of ‘MadeByMJD’.
Michael has had many years experience of working with different musicians and bands, all with different tastes in genres. Michael’s philosophy is that a composition, regardless of genre is a piece of art, as stated on his website ‘Music is an expressive, emotional art form that can portray so many things to so many different people…’ Michael’s mission as a studio engineer is to help capture the artists feelings within his work and has a wonderful reputation for doing so.
So let us welcome our first Studio Engineer to Mocha-Metal Merch!
Don’t forget to go and share the love on social media for our affiliates…Facebook, Instagram , Twitter, YouTube Etc.
