A walk in the park – a step in the dark. The…
Music has always been an important part of my life since I was 12 years old.
I got my first guitar at the age of 12 and played my first concert at the age of 15. Music has taken me to places in this world I would never have gone otherwise. I have met people all over the world and many friendships have developed. I was allowed to share the stage with great people and when I wasn’t performing myself, I was allowed to tour the world with other bands, some of them big, as a roady. Apart from all these benefits and experiences, music has always given me a sense of security and understanding – in good times and bad. This page is a kind of personal diary or archive of this journey, which hopefully will continue for a long time.
(This page is still under heavy construction as I am collecting material to put on display here.)
Bands I play(ed) in:
- End of Days
Contra – False Gods
Full Length Album / CD / Vinyl 12″
The Ruhrpott has often offered fertile ground for good hard/metalcore from German lands. Just two examples from different “eras”: True Blue and AYS.
Concerts in this area are also usually particularly well attended – and only when this is the case does something like a “scene” flourish. The members of Contra have also been part of this community for years: They draw from their experiences with Copykill, Fallbrawl and In Blood We Trust, among others. FALSE GODS may be the band’s debut album, but there is no question of a lack of maturity, too little flair or initial restraint. The production by Caliban guitarist Marc Görtz makes the debut competitive with the colleagues from overseas. A few nice solos, a pleasant balance of breakdowns and speed as well as a powerful shouter always provide variety.
Even if the wheel is not reinvented, the German scene can be happy about this band: A real enrichment!
