Biography

South Africa

Bile of Man is a death metal band from South Africa.

Considered to be one of the heaviest bands currently in South Africa, Bile of Man gained a lot of respect from fans and other bands as a result of their unrelenting brutality and intensity.

In the early years of the second millenium Bile of Man started pushing boundaries with founding member and drummer Riaan Els (Ex Shadowlord, Funeral God), who employed Jacques Valentyn (Ex Mjolnir) as guitarist and co-songwriter. Shortly after, the spot of second guitar was filled by Bennie Burger. Undergoing several member shifts and changes, mid 2007 saw the first official line-up of the band consisting of vocalist Martin Bettac, Riaan Els on drums, Bennie Burger on guitar, Gustaf Erasmus on guitar and Choroz Bileous on bass.


Their debut show in April of 2008 cast their live performance reputation in stone. Now known to be one of the most energetic live performances the metal scene in South Africa has ever seen. Soon after their first couple of shows, Martin Bettac was replaced by bearer of hatred, Rehan de Kock on vocals. Within the first year of the band’s life of performing live, they played alongside Death Metal masters Carcass at the last Witchfest Festival. Again going through member changes on the role of guitar, Gustaf was replaced by Jacques Valentyn and shortly after Jacques had also left the band early in 2009.
