About Mournblade

"The future of British Heavy Metal" according to Kerrang! magazine. Formed in 1983 by Dunken and Richie the band was influenced by the books of Michael Moorcock (at a book signing he gave Dunken permission to use the name "Mournblade", a sword from one of his most famous books) and the early material and theatrical live shows reflect this. At one stage the live show featured 14 costume changes as well as many props, notably a 7 foot wooden sword, a 4 foot high doll ("Victoria"), a decaying WWI soldiers mask, a devil (including a cape with a 3 meter wingspan) and of course the legendary Titanium hero space helmet! The band gigged constantly around the UK promoting their first official release "Times Running Out" performing over 400 gigs and playing with everyone from Motorhead to Doctor and The Medics, Zodiac Midwarp, The Enid and were great supporters of the free festival circuit playing at the infamous Stonehenge festival amongst others. By the late 1980's the band decided to leave behind the theatrics and make-up and the music became more raw, stripped down - pure unadulterated British Rock n Roll, but still retaining the unique tongue-in-cheek Mournblade attitude. Now a 4 piece, the keyboards largely replaced by Paul "Blacken" White's immense 8-string bass sound the band went on to achieve official cult status with their second album release "Live Fast Die Young" and toured non-stop until the band split late in 1989. Promoter and long-time Mournblade fan Stefan Bosland contacted the band earlier this year and suggested a re-union. This was not as easy as it first seemed as founder member Dunken had emigrated to New Zealand in 2008. After many phone calls, emails and skype calls and a haitus of nearly a quarter of a century, the band will be once more bringing their unique brand of havoc to the stage on October 27th at this years Metal Maniacs festival in Hoorn (promoted every year by Stefan), and there are currently working on a new EP 'Resurrection".
