Please tell us about the history of your band and its members.
EISENHAUER has been around since 2007. Four friends who met at the beginning to play songs by Iron Maiden, Metallica, Slayer and Pantera, drink beer and have a good time. Over time, we have worked more and more on our own songs and developed our own style. Our line-up has consisted of Christian 'Waxe' Wagner (vocals, guitar), Simon Bihlmayer (guitar), Thomas 'Ase' Aschermann (bass) and Johann Bechteler (drums) for 13 years.
How would you describe your style? Which bands influenced your music?
We play true classic Heavy Metal. Our heroically charged to the point of bursting, doomy and typically Teutonic Heavy Rock with a continuous, catchy and melodic Metal edge captivates with the seal of approval 'Real Handmade'. All the music we listen to for decades influenced us. Everything we hear has it´s own kind of darkness. We are children of the ’80s and are mostly on the NWOBHM, early Heavy Metal, Thrashmetal and Hardcore. Some of our
all-time favorites are Black Sabbath, Iron Maiden, Dio, Mercyful Fate,
Cro-Mags, Danzig and Slayer. Also, I'm a big Johnny Cash fan.
Why should a metalhead buy your demos/albums?
Our strongest inspiration is this feeling of Heavy Metal that we have, not to give up, keep fighting, to believe in yourself and your music and to pursue your goal. Through the music we try to handle our demons and keep the flame burning. And that we would like to pass on. And you can feel that! There is a lot of passion in every note, every word and the complete cover artwork.
What have you released so far and how were your releases received by the public/media?
In 2012 we released our first self-produced album "Never Surrender". With the help of friends we released the EP "Horse Of Hell" in 2015. For "Horse of Hell" we have received many positive reviews and attention worldwide. And now our newest album "Blessed Be The Hunter" will be released on June 6th 2020.
Do you play live as well? How's your live activity so far?
We try to play as many gigs as possible. So far, you could admire us at festivals such as the aaarg festival, the Days of Eruption Festival (Germany) and the Suanrock in Italy.
What should labels/zines/promoters know about your band? Why should they be interested in it?
EISENHAUER stands for timeless and unadulterated HEAVY METAL in its purest form. We carry the heroic sagas of a generation believed lost to the campfires of our time. Serious musicians are at work, who know exactly what they want to hear as fans - without looking at degraded images or wandering along worn out retro sound paths.
What plans do you have for the near future as a band?
We are currently promoting our new album "Blessed be the Hunter" which will be released on Rafchild Records in early June. In addition, we're already writing new songs. Our goal is to play our songs live in front of as many people as possible.
