First gathered

When the band Present Danger was founded in 1996 , they pretty much had already decided where their music would lead to. . Their destiny was the same as other mega bands like Metallica, Iron Maiden and Megadeth. Being compared to these mega bands was a big compliment. The expectation was Present danger would be a Metallica tribute band and a Metal Band in its own right. The year 2008 becomes pivotal when Present Danger won one of the biggest Metallica tribute competitions in The Netherlands, The Class of the Cover Bands. During this competiton Thijs de Jong was chosen as Metal guitar player of the year, The brothers Thijs de Jong (guitar/vocals) and Martijn (drums/backing vocals) and the brothers Raymond Netten (bass player /backing vocals) and Maikel (guitar/backing vocals) now were up for it.! This resulted in 2012 to make an album which Present Danger produced themselves. Their first album called Face the Truth contains eight astounding tracks ending with an extra encore of Face the Truth. At first before the premiere of their first album they were a bit apprehensive but their sold out venues showed these fears were without reason. The fans were thrilled/ecstatic from the first notes and every track was played like professionals /like a sound Metal Rock band? From then on, Present Danger was destined as a professional Metal rockband and as a Metallica tribute band destined to become the greatest of all Benelux bands.

In 2014 the band did a short tour in the USA (california and Nevada) and visited NAMM to meet their endorsers.

LEGENDS of ROCK 2020

Onze afsluiter op 22 april wordt Present Danger, één van de beste tributebands die we laatste jaren aan het werk zagen. Deze Nederlandse tribute van Metallica speelde onder meer al op Graspop in een bomvolle Marquee. Wij waren onder de indruk en dus mochten ze niet ontbreken op de eerste editie van TribFest.
