SUN CAGED Win Dutch Radio Competition

Dutch progressive metallers SUN CAGED, who feature in their ranks STAR ONE keyboardist Joost van den Broek, won the April 2004 monthly band competition on the popular Dutch radio station 3FM. "People could vote for the competing bands on the Internet and there was also a professional jury who gave the bands a rating," reads a post on the band's web site. "SUN CAGED got the most Internet votes and also the highest ratings from the jury, which made SUN CAGED the winner for the 3FM Buzz Awards for the month April. This means the band will start recording a session for 3FM radio soon and will be competing at the end of the year with 11 other bands for the yearly finals."

SUN CAGED's self-titled debut album was released last October through Finland's Lion Music. "Sun Caged" was mixed by AYREON/STAR ONE mastermind Arjen Anthony Lucassen.
