History Lessons & Visions from the Darkside
Origin and Destination
ANGSTKRIEG ANNO 1998
The name and idea for the band came about in 1998, and in 1999 the first Angstkrieg constellation was on it's feet, consisting of Tristan, Violator & Janos diCroce. In 2001 the band collapsed on itself while recording a studio-rehersal. The main idea was rotten, drunken chaos & violence, so it got a bit too extreme that day. Tristan & Violator still continue the madness in Bloodlust togheter with Eternity, but that is another story...
Years went by, and in 2004, the band started rehearsing again. This time with some line-up changes.
ANGSTKRIEG ANNO 2009
A now permanent line-up went to the studio early 2009.
..but the EP was not released before march 2010. Working on a non-existing budget, things take time, and in the end you've got to pay in some way or another. In this case our guitarist paid for the mastering and pressing of the CD, while a good friend helped making the cover. The release was done through Angstkrieg Productions, a company that has not yet really told the world about its products... Guess we'll have to get some publicity before our next release.
The line-up is:
Blake Carrington (mid. right in pic.) - Guitars + backing vocals
Gape Horn (far right) - Drums (and probably also guitar on the next releases)
Predator (far left) - Bass + backing vocals
Tristan (mid. left) - Vocals
We have all played in various metal-bands over the last +20 years, some known, some unknown, but now we are united in Angstkrieg. Some of the pseudonyms may seem, and are, a bit weird, but there are reasons for this... The names may change with time, but the men behind them will be the same (not in a legally binding way, of course. It was just a joke, Your Honour).
ANGSTKRIEG ANNO 2011
New songs are sounding great so far, but now we're on holiday until late august, so stay tuned. I'll be updating this site while on "vacation", though... -Tristan
