Hailing from Sint Niklaas (East Flanders-Belgium) Devil’s Bargain was founded in 2013 by bassist Dirk Poppe and guitarist Jurgen Van Poppel, they already had several years of experience on the counter.

Many live performances were finished and everything went fine, yet the insight came that a second guitarist had to be recruited.

Eventually they ended up with Manu who collaborated on their first EP “Deal With The Devil (2017)” but has already left the band in the meantime.
