Bands
Emerald

We have to go back to the mid 70s to find the origin of Emerald. At this time the 2 school friends Bert Kivits and Allard Ekkel decided to start a band and call it Warrior. Of course there were later a number of bands called Warrior, only in Holland alone there were a few of them. So at the end of '83 the name is changed into Emerald, inspired by a song from Thin Lizzy. It takes until '84 when the band records a 4 track demo. The songs shows the guys are very much into Picture and Ozzy Osbourne. What everyone directly hears is the extremely high pitched voice from singer Bert Kivits. It's a love or hate thing and nothing in the middle. A mix between Geddy Lee and Pat Benatar (really!). But besides Bert's voice also the Randy Rhoads style playing from Allard Ekkel is quite remarkable and gives Emerald their own unique sound. No wonder the band gets good reviews. Megaton boss Bram Kloos gets interested and so it happens that on the 24th of January 1985 the band signs a deal with Megaton (Thank you Bram!!). When later that year the album is released, Emerald got a huge live reputation in their region and is called 'The best Heavy Metal band from the East' (of Holland that is).
