This German Metalcore sextet from the small village of Kevelaer (situated near the Dutch border, at about 25 km North of Venlo) was founded in September 2009 by singers Maik Krause and Christopher Küppers, guitarists Boris Smolorz and Jos Ingenpass, bassist Johannes van Berlo and drummer Thorsten Schad, and so prolific and well in-tune with each other were the youngsters, that by Spring 2010 they already self-released their debut EP My Last Seconds.
Let It Burn Records
Germany's Ibbenbüren based Hardcore act was founded in 2007 (which makes it the oldest still remaining act in the genre from that area), and the outfit released a well-received EP entitled Sin a year later.
This Hamburg based German Hardcore unit was founded towards the end of 2011, and following the release of their debut EP Peter Pan Syndrome (issued on vinyl through Anchored Records, and digitally through Acuity.music, the latter version containing two extra songs) in early 2012 (a re-issue of the EP was also brought on CD through Bruised & Broken Records, during Summer 2012 – a nice detail of the EP, was that the guys managed to attract several other bands' singers to come bring a contribution :
Gee...goin' on the enormous discrepancy of info on this Mönchengladback based German Hardcore act on the Internet, one would almost think they prefer to stay in anonymity. Not really a good way for a band to promote itself or, as more in tune with the Hardcore scene, to disperse your messages to a maximum of possibly concerned/ sensitive people!
This very new (founded in early 2013) Karlruhe-based German band consists of singer Oliver Hormuth, guitarist Jonas Herr, bassist Jan-Philipp Steinel, and drummer Linus Müller, and describes its music as “Alternative Hardcore”.
Not a freaking lot is known about this Munich based German Pop singer/ songwriter/ guitarist, whose sound is a guitar based kind of Pop in which the acoustic has a dominance.
Light Your Anchor is a five-piece, German Melodic Hardcore band that was founded in Hamburg in 2011 and they are back with their first full-length album ‘Hopesick’. If you liked their EP ‘Peter Pan Syndrome’ than you will certainly love the album, it’s filled with old school melodic and technical hardcore spiced up by the load of variations in style, tempo and structure with a clever combination of screaming and melodic vocals.
If there's one thing that gives me slight creeps, it's Mister Bieber. Next to that, you have emo metalcore. The Norwegian band of Dyst describe themselves as such a band. However, what they bring is far from the childish thing I first had in mind. This young band seems to be really grown up musically.
While the German guys in Storyteller are just about to blow out their very first birthday candle, they release there very first record, containing three songs, called Take Me Home.
Nowadays, if you really want to discover some new bands, you really have to be open-minded. Lots of bands don't see the big deal when it comes to adding electronic elements to their music, such as keyboards. Madison Affair is no different and on their new 7", simply called MMXIII, they released four brand new songs which sound very brutal and bright at the same time. Just give the first song, Sound In My Head, a listen and you'll understand what I mean.
