It was finally high time - last weekend we went back on stage at the brilliant party for the CD presentation of our friends from DUST & BONES - it was more than a pleasure, as Bobbes was also able to be there again with almost full commitment after a long break. Although he was supposed to take it easy for a while, there was no other way - a merciless performance, partly alone, partly in duet with Peter - it seems as if he has used the past weeks to recharge hisbatteries - welcome back Bobbes, you old ramp sow!!!
Next Saturday we'll be going live again and the diary is filling up more and more. We're really looking forward to being able to party with you regularly again. At the same time, we're also going full speed into work on the 3rd album. The songwriting is also in full swing and at the same time the recordings for the first tracks are already being prepared - there will certainly be no room for boredom in the near future ...
And suddenly there was silence - well, only brief and temporary ...
The last gig planned for this year was sadly cancelled last Friday due to heavy snowfall at the venue, so the winter break has now begun a little earlier. Shit happens but the rescheduled date is already fixed.
We would like to take this opportunity to salute all the organizers and visitors of the gigs this year - it was an honor for us to play for you and to party with you. A big thank you also to everyone who supported us so fantastically by buying CDs, vinyl and textiles - you are the best!!!
The plans for 2024 are already in full swing and the free time will certainly be used again and again at full volume - songwriting for the next CD and rehearsing one or two new songs for the live events in 2024. Bobbes will certainly be back on stage next year as he continues to recover and gather strength. Of course, there will also be a reunion with Peter Hirsch, who rocked the last gigs so fantastically - Chapeau Peter and a thousand thanks.
We are already looking forward to welcome you back from the stage. Until then, have a good time and turn the sound up to the max from time to time.
Finally, here's a gallery from the last gig of the year at Soundcheck One - thanks to Peter Gödecke for capturing the special stage atmosphere:
Wicked ones claim that the old men of Black & Damned have to spend more time in medical treatment than rocking out together. Unfortunately, it must be said that this is not completely out of the air.
After Micha, it's now Mr. Seidel's turn again, who will have to endure a serious medical procedure in the coming week. We keep our fingers crossed that everything goes quickly and above all successfully "over the stage".
Since Bobbes will sadly be out of action for several weeks, we are happy that our buddy Peter Hirsch (Sirius Curse, Crossing Sabbath) will take over the part at the front mic in the meantime. At the two festivals in Dotternhausenand Hohenmemmingen Peter was already on stage and proved that he is an excellent and worthy substitute until Bobbes is back in full action.
But now also again at this point: Welcome Peter !!!
Peter will play his first fulltime gig next Saturday at the Sonnenkeller in Balingen - hell yeah.
And here is the next gallery, this time from Metalnight Vol II last Saturday. The photos come again from the house of Hintz - thanks again!
Well, that makes you want to go to the next festival, tomorrow in Alzey at the Metalheads - so let's have a blast together ...
Part 2 of the Upper Saw Festival, now with the great pics of Jochen Martin:
Great pictures from last Saturday at the Upper Saw Festival by Sascha & Nadine Hintz.
Tonight it goes on in Hohenmemmingen at the Metalnight Vol II - we are looking forward to you!!
A huge thanks to the Upper Saw Festival team and all the metalheads - it was an honour to be part of this mega party again.
The wait is over - no more summer lazing around - it's high time to hit the stages ourselves again !!!!
The next 3 weeks will start with 3 wonderful festivals:
23.09. - Uper Saw Festival - Dotternhausen (Ger)
30.09. - Metalnight II in Hohenmemmingen (Ger)
07.10. - Metalheads Gemany Festival VI - Alzey (Ger)
We are in the starting blocks, digging in our heels and looking forward to rocking and partying with you all without mercy.
The waiting time until the next gigs is the perfect opportunity to get the right outfit already now, e.g. one of the new shirts - or even several to switch:
Just send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and you will get all the necessary details.
Last Saturday we definitely had a lot of fun at the Savo-Club in Balingen and no, the gig really wasn't cool, but rather an absolute heat battle, where Bobbes impressively proved how fit he is in the meantime again - yeah!!!
But now it's time for the summer break - holidays, recreation and of course some songwriting. In 2 months, we will be back in full force with a triple pack of festivals - the anticipation is already absolutely immense.
We are really happy that our shouting boy is fit again and was able to perform on stage yesterday.
The next opportunity to find out for yourself is in Balingen in 2 weeks - we look forward to seeing you there!
There's not much to say about it, except: Volume to maximum and there you go ...
