Mindead will step once more on the gas in 2019. The five guys from Germany let the predecessor “Controlling The Tides” from 2015 behind and will present with their new “Self-titled” record a dark Modern Metal firework.
MINDEAD play a gritty kind of modern metal with lots of passion and unique flavour. Frontman Timo Fielker and drummer Benjamin Hölle met in 2001 to turn the MINDEAD concept into sound. Right from the beginning the focus was on rhythmic metal that would thrill with anthemic character. MINDEAD were quickly established in the local scene surrounding Ludwigsburg and Stuttgart. The next goal was to break free from the confines of local stardom: the debut album “Abandon All Hope” was released in the late summer of 2008. The album boasts eleven highly energetic tracks.
Timo, Pablo, Bene and Ben played shows with respected and big names of the international metal scene such as Devildriver, Mnemic, Ektomorf, 4LYN and Emil Bulls. Their biggest tour so far saw MINDEAD share the stages with nu metal heroes Ill Nino all across Europe.
To promote “Abandon All Hope” the band filmed a video clip for ‘Dark places’ with a Swabian film team in the summer of 2012. A sombre piece taking place in a run-down storage facility. A perfect setting for MINDEAD`s music! After playing over 200 shows all over Germany and beyond, MINDEAD have perfected their sound. A strong foundation gained more and more depth.
Nowadays the band stands for catchy modern metal songwriting: their new songs show off an abundance of ideas and diversion. Aggressive and driven riffing on the one hand – radio-friendly power ballads on the other. Their second longplayer ,,Controlling The Tides” was released on February 27, 2015! A huge step forward for this promising and unique band from Germany…
The year 2016 brought the from fans long awaited re-release of the first long player “Abandon All Hope”. Not only the original 11 Tracks but also 3 bonus tracks are to find on this re-release. Including a new atmospheric version of the club hit “Dark Places”.
