Orphanage was a Dutch metal band, which existed from 1987 till 2005. They were one of the first Dutch metal band who mixed death metal grunts with clean female vocals. By mixing very different musical styles they have created their own unique sound.

In 1996, an era in which several new metal-styles and cross-overs arose in the landscape of metal, they described their style as "Innovative gregorian groovy celtic melodic danceable doom death metal" (great lastfm tag!!)

Line-up :
George Oosthoek : Grunts and screams
Rosan Van Der Aa : Vocals
Sureel : Drums and clay pot
Remko Van Der Spek : Bass guitar and guitars
Lasse Dellbrügge : Synths and sound design
Guus Eikens : Guitars, keyboards and vocals

Former members:
Martine van Loon: Vocals
Lex Vogelaar: Guitars and vocals
Eric Hoogendoorn: Bass
Jules Vleugels: Drums
Erwin Polderman: Drums

Mid October 2005, after 11 years, the band split up. The official announcement stated: "From recent internal discussions it appeared that there was too much irritation and a lack of mutual trust, to be able to make a new Orphanage product, by the high quality standards that the band has been known for throughout the years.".

Singer George Oosthoek is still frequently seen in the Dutch metal scene, performing as guest vocalist for other metal-bands (like Delain, After Forever and Within Temptation) or in his own bands like Pleurisy.
