Info STAREDOWN Staredown are five best friends from the german „Ruhrpott Area“. Founded in 2005... these guys are living their passion for Hardcore together since the early 90s. Their debut record „Choose Life“ is a masterpiece which contains ten agressive songs dedicated to the true believers. Their intense style combined with heavy guitar riffs and powerful breakdowns prove that this band is here to stay. The fresh voice of their vocalist combined with his intelligent lyrics demonstrates clearly that Hardcore is still alive in 2019. If you expect them to re-invent this genre you are totally wrong... but if you love classic NYHC in the vein of Biohazard or Madball, you will eat their songs like a pack of gummy bears! This band is ready to tear down any stage they enter. Over the years they already shared stages with top notch artists such as Hatebreed, Agnostic Front, Slapshot, Downset, Biohazard, Strife, Raised Fist, In Other Climes and Cro-Mags... just to name a few.
Info Under the commonly hoisted flag, the crew of "The Privateer" sails the waters of sunny southwest Germany. Inspired by classical Heavy Metal, as well as modern Death- and a bit of Power metal, doused with a barrel of rum and a pinch of sea salt, they have created their own characteristic sound. Influences from Folk Metal are particularly highlighted by the use of the violin. The varied vocals which alternate between clean vocal, screams and choruses give their sound a special note. With their songs they tell stories of hidden treasures, distant worlds, old nautical lore, and the myths of the sea.
