“If you want safety and a life to enjoy, stay away from planet earth, blue planet of blood and sorrow.” – These words from the debut album “Messengers of Change”, released in 2015, sums up HOAXBANE’s philosophy. Many events happened in the band’s life since 2015, many successful live performances, experiments, and now HOAXBANE releases a new single being on the way to the new album.
Metal On Loud Magazine proudly introduces the premiere of ERADICATION.
The song fully reflects HOAXBANE’s views, its topic is based upon how mankind’s reign may end and speculates around existential fearquestions.”Unknown signs may appear in the sky but they are not the new hope everyone is longing for. It will put an end to all that we know so far to begin something new that is far superior.” – Misanthrop comments.
Musically the song lays in the concept of German black metal and unique HOAXBANE’s performance style with strong riffing, angry rhythm of bass and understandable by listeners emotional and powerful vocal.
Video shooting took place in an abandoned place which was used by Russian forces during WWII. It fits perfectly to the mood and lyrics of the song.
About (source: Mighty Music):
HOAXBANE is a German extreme metal duo from Berlin formed in 2013.
HOAXBANE take a socially critical position, hostile towards all manipulative ideologies which seek to achieve a superficial, conformist, consumer society.
As the name HOAXBANE suggests, their lyrics deal with the great lies of mankind’s history. Today the conspiracy of the mass media is fast replacing the influence & functions of religion.
Their ideology rejects generally proclaimed values but promotes individual thought and encourages not following like lemmings but instead to question social norms and indeed much of mankind ́s past. HOAXBANE ́S expression is inevitably a roar of contempt.
Through intensive studio work the apocalyptic visions are hammered out until they represent the author ́s concept 100%. In doing so HOAXBANE value clear musical structures aswell as a powerful, transparent sound in which the vocals are the central element.
For both of these exceptional artists the music is their purpose and their passion. The philosophy that they express is carried into their everyday life.
His heart lives and beats for the savage, raw and unbroken power of Black Metal which in it´s time was created by the wild norwegian hordes. Since the start of this fascination Misanthrop has been almost solely responsible for the blackest parts of the genre and has enriched many bands through his versatile delivery. Because of irrevocable differences with established bands (Block Hoggins, Amok Vedar) he decided to activate his own projects (Douleur Atroce, Hassessenz). He also shared the stage with scene greats such as Belphegor, Eminenz, Endstille & Debauchery. His unrelenting dedication to the music reached new heights as his path crossed that of Tantrum Mezcalar.
Tantrum Mezcalar (guitar/bass):
Meaning: Fit of rage under the influence of mescalin.
In ancient cultures mescalin intoxication was used in order to achieve liberating & redeeming visions in which the warrior could learn his secret warrior name & the magical name of his guardian spirit. He grew up in the former walled city of Berlin and decided early on to go to the dark side of music. After the usual experiences wandering about the Berliner metal bands he went off to London. Through various connections to Motörhead´s management Doug Smith, he had many opportunities to prove his musical abilities. Meanwhile he made a name for himself as a guitarist and producer. After returning to Berlin he worked on his own studio projects. In a typical WW II Berlin bunker in which many bands have practice rooms he met singer Misanthrop. After just one rehearsal together it was immediately clear that a new kind of pure energy had assaulted the two meter thick concrete walls.
