Rob Fabrie’s career started in 1990 as a member of the famous group HOLY NOISE. On stage the group was formed by Paul Elstak, Rob Fabrie and Richard van Naamen (The producers). After a couple of years he decided to leave the group to work on solo productions.
WAXWEAZLE VINYL (The ID&T years)
Rob for the first time in his life was now in full control of his own music and how it was presented. The first release was Legs by DJ WAXWEAZLE and that one sold 2000 copies in one week. The record label was off to a flying start, many releases followed; some almost making it to the official charts in the Netherlands.
Other producers also got the chance, Tails & Noizer, Recharge, DJ Delirium, E-Rick & Tactic, DJ Promo and many more made records on the label. A total of 30 releases where made on the label. ID&T also supported the dj career of Rob and gave him the opportunity to play onThunderdome, Global Hardcore Nation, Earthquake and many other parties. In 1997 Rob decided to go back to his harder edged sound of Somebody from Rotterdam and slowed the tempo down… Sweet Dreams (you bastard) was born. Rob decided that he didn’t want it to be released as a Waxweazle production so the name HEADBANGER was born. A huge hit was the result and today it’s considered to be a classic!
For the follow-up Headbanger record Rob went back to Rotterdam Records. First hit was The Nightmare Man. The third record was called: The Third Torture and it had the huge hit NO LAW on it. This one outsold all the other Headbanger records till that day, a true classic! The final installment was Enter the 4th Dimension and it had the hits Headbanger’s Theme (together with Holy Noise buddies Alee and Ruffian on vocals), I’m In Your Yead and The Wishmaster. The shout: “Don’t You Wanna Be A Headbanger” can still be heard today on every party and is the true Headbanger’s anthem.
Rob met the famous Rotterdam Terror Corps, they hooked up and made the record Bangin Your Fist on Megarave Records. After that Rob was offered to do more on the label, a new alias was made for the project: Alienator. The first 12 inch Prey was an instant hit. Paul Elstak was also producing for Rige and he and Rob hooked up together again for the 12 inch Your Mother Sucks Cocks In Hell. Released on the new label Offensive Records this track was a huge hit.
After this Rob was offered by Rige to do a Headbanger album. This became a triple cd with the title Are u afraid of the Dark and was released in 2001. The third album was called Serious Damage and was released in 2004. The 4th album was Apocalyseand the fifth album was R-Evolution (to celebrate 10 years of The Headbanger).
