Pratteln (19/Oct) | Artist Biography
Eisregen is a German death metal / black metal band which formed in 1995. The members are from Tambach-Dietharz, a village in Thuringia.
In English, Eisregen translates to "Ice Rain". By using morbid German lyrics unlike those of other bands of this genre, they got the attention of German authorities, causing the indexing of three of their albums.
Eisregen originally planned to disband after releasing a final album called "Menschenmaterial" (Human Resources, as in mineral/natural Resources, a dehumanizing reference to "spendable" humans), but now announced that they will continue to work together.
Eisregen’s old albums were more black metal influenced than the newer ones. The violin parts, now typical for the band, came with "Krebskolonie" (Cancer Colony), considered as their best album by many of their fans.
Unlike "normal" indexing (which means publicity and selling to minors are forbidden), "Krebskolonie" is not allowed to be played publicly at all in Germany ("Verbreitungsverbot"). This means the band is not allowed to play any songs from this album live even for adult public. The reason given was the lyrics, described as "grausam, menschenverachtend, frauenfeindlich und verrohend" (cruel, inhuman, misogynistic, brutalising). The band could not fight the indexing as their label Last Episode (which they left afterwards) did not inform them.Wide ThumbClearartFanartBanner User Comments
