Jucifer, founded in 1993, are pioneers of the metal two piece. Their onstage sound, often loosely categorized as sludge, careens venomously through every extreme and tempo of metal and punk, with particular attention to black metal, old school death metal, and grind. Jucifer is notorious for the relentlessness of their live performances, their use of massive amplification, and the fact that the band has been nomadic for 18 of its 25 years in existence.
Founded at a bar in Kreuzberg… Now rising like a grumpy demon from the bowels of a damp cold cellar in Berlin. Treedeon returns with the follow-up to their debut, « Lowest Level Reincarnation », which was released some three years ago. The bruising second album, « Under The Manchineel » marks the arrival of a new drummer Andy Schuenemann, of post-rock instrumental duo Alphatrip, joining bassist/vocalist Yvonne Ducksworth and vocalist/guitarist Arne Heesch, and taking the band in an even heavier direction.
