Additional notes
Originally formed in 1985 by Pieter De Swart (using the pseudonym Pieter De Sury) on guitar, Danny Arnold Lommen on drums and Martin van Kleef on bass.
After Martin van Kleef had left the band and was replaced by Rob Frey (using the pseudonym Marij Hel), they released two albums "Hart Gore" and "Mean Man's Dream", and a live split LP with Henry Rollins.
By the end of 1987 Pieter De Sury left the band and was replaced by guitarists Frank Stroobants (using the pseudonym Frankie Stroo) and Yussef Benli (using the pseudonym Joes Bentley). GORE released a third album, "Wrede- The Cruel Peace". Shortly after that the band disbanded.
From 1992 Rob Frey starts to release some albums under the GORE banner again, assisted by J. van Reede on guitar and Bardo Koolen (using the pseudonyme Bardo Maria) on drums.
The german band Bohren & Der Club Of Gore choose their name to render homage to GORE.
