Gaming, Nerdstuff, Movies and Series (sometimes writing GER/ENG reviews on letterboxd), reading books, Whisky! watching sports, mainly Football and American Football
(How) do I know fellow authors from Team Transcended?
I don’t know exactly when I met Roman, but it was because we share some friends, that’s where we met the first time. Then we lost contact over a few years (but Facebook never forgets) and we sometimes talked about good music what we share there.
Why do I want to write about music:
Roman asked me if I wanted to try. I want to give it a shot, I write reviews on letterboxd and I am an active member of some subreddits.
First concert ever?
Technically: Arena of Sound in Stuttgart in the early 2000’s. I visited my cousin and because this festival was free we watched some acts. It was pure horror.
After that, it must have been JBO in Lindau.
3 best concert impressions:
1) Skalmöld 2017 Vaudeville – I like this band very much, good stage presence and after that I drank some beer with them at the bar.
2) Gloryhammer 2018 Headbangers Night Schmalegg
3) I don’t know why, but a gig from an Italian Rammstein Coverband, I think it was “Übermensch”, at a big MC-Party and it was very impressive for me. They tried to achive the typical Rammstein-Stuff on a low budget level, and on this day the Suisse-custom-officers took away all their fireworks on the way to the party, but the effort was impressive and the music very good.
Concerts you missed (and you’re very mad about!):
Mantar 2018 Kula Konstanz – Whyyyyyy did I miss that…..
Kettcar 2018 Kultursommer-Festival Conrad Sohm Dornbirn
Ahab 2010 Summer Breeze
Bands you (still) need to see (again):
Mantar, I want to see and feel the power of that band live. Definitely Kettcar, Brutus, Cult of Luna and Gloryhammer (again).
First album I bought:
Linkin Park – Meteora
First vinyl I bought:
AC/DC – Back in Black
Most frequently spinned album:
Linkin Park – Hybrid Theory
Albums that impacted me the most:
Linkin Park – Meteora
The first “Metal” album I bought that influenced me, with Rammstein, most effectively for this genre. With Minutes to Midnight I wasn’t a fan of this band anymore, but I must thank them a lot and of course Chester (R.I.P.). For me, this is an all-time classic album.
Rammstein – Reise, Reise
Next to Meteora the album that influenced me the most.
Heaven Shall Burn – Invictus (Iconoclast III)
Cult of Luna & Julie Christmas – Mariner
Kettcar – Du und wieviele deiner Freunde
