Stiff Old, Guitar and Vocals.
When/where was your band formed?
Deathronation was born in an air-raid shelter in 2004.
Why did you choose to play Death Metal?
Because it was strongly necessary.
How do you compose your music? Does only one guy do everything or does everyone contribute?
The guitars bring up the tunes, bass and drums perform the groove the voice improves the shit.
Tell us about your lyrics, writing, inspiration etc.
Our lyrics are about death and decay inspired by mythology, history and religion. For example „Deathchant Assyria“ is about the rise and fall of the ancient Assyrian Empire and „Spiritual Relief“ about the fight of enlightment versus religious dogmatic believes.
Tell us about your latest release – Hallow The Dead
„Hallow the Dead“ was released in 2014 and contains eight tunes of old-school death metal. It was welcomed a lot by many underground maniacs all around the globe. The whole album – lyrics, music and the great cover artwork is one strong unit.
How do you see the state of Death Metal music these days in your country and in general?
Death Metal has a strong underground standing as nowadays many people are really into the shit again. It’s a good time for playing in a death metal band. Much better than back in 2004 when we started. In Germany we have very interesting bands now and I see strong bands showing up from many other contries too.
What are your long term plans as a band? What do you want to achieve?
To go on and on and on!
Name another Death Metal band from your country that everyone should hear.
There’s no band on the whole fucked up planet everyone should hear.
