This promising and different band have, with their brutal and personal stories, proved that they have their very own place on the global rock scene.
Their songs are dusty and dirty tales of emotional stress and show a remarkable combination of awkward aggression and melancholy. A rough and simple rock instrumentation joins forces with piano, pump-organ, violins and upright bass in songs with great melodies and distinctive moods. On their debut the band excites with an original take on a long songwriting tradition populated by legends like Tom Waits and Nick Cave, but at the same time refer to pounding, progressive artists like Neurosis and Tool.
KELLERMENSCH find inspiration in both music, literature and paintings. The band’s fascination with old, abstract art, e.g. the German expressionistic movement Die Brücke, has played a vital part in defining the bands unique look and sound. Also, the Russian author Fyodor Dostoyevsky and his novel Notes from the Underground (in German, Kellermensch) has been a big inspiration for the band, as hinted by their name. The often harsh and at times sad stories from a frustrating and confusing everyday-life shape the lyrical themes for the band as they do for the great novelist.
