A Greek, a Russian and a German walk into a bar...« What starts out like a bad joke is actually a quite exact description of The Helldozers‘ hour of birth.
In 2010, Atha Vassiliadis (guitar), Anton Rynskiy (vocals), and Philipp Reissfelder (guitar), everyone of them a seasoned musician in his own right, met in Cologne, Germany, got wasted, and decided to record some songs. Relying heavily on their national beverages, they created their very own kind of riff oriented groove metal, infused with stoner and southern rock elements.
During the next three years, the three kept writing and published two smaller releases. After three months of constant fighting, yelling, drinking, declarations of love and hate and generally all sorts of mental confusion, in other words known as »recording an album«, the guys finally made it: on November 1st 2013, The Helldozers released their first full length album »Hate Sweet Hate«.
In 2015 Sebastian (drums) left, and Athas then 14 year old son Alex Müller stood in for some festival gigs. After having tested several drummers, none of which could hold a candle to the young hotshot, the band decided to make Alex a full permanent member.
In early 2016 The Helldozers started tracking for their next album. This time, they went for a very authentic, brutal, close-to-live sound, using no samples and few overdubs. First reviews of »Carnival« called the album‘s sound »punchy, but not too modern«. Mission accomplished!
