Dutch death metallers CONSOLATION will reunite for an appearance at the first annual Zaans Metaal Festival, set to take place Friday, December 12 at De Kade in Zaandam, The Netherlands. The group, which previously released three albums and an EP — "Beautyfilth" (1994), "Brave Melvin from the Southern Point" (1996), "Stahlplaat" (1999) and the EP "The Truth" (1995) — will appear with a lineup that never recorded one note of music as a collective unit: Manoloxxx (vocals), Robert van der Mijle (guitar), Dennis Jak (guitar), Rein Schorel (bass) and Toep Duin (drums). Also scheduled to perform are the Brazilian/Dutch metallers SEITA, the reformed JACKAL and Metal Battle Noord Holland winners LABORATORY SICKNESS.

"Zaans Metaal" is a weekly metal show on Zaanradio, a local station in the Zaan area of The Netherlands.
