Manstopper:




Band History:

Founded in Muenster/Germany in late '89 the goal of the band was to take
Thrash-Metal one step further in terms of speed and aggression then what was
known around the world before.

After several very succesful concerts around the area and a 4 track-demo in '94
which was completely sold out, Speed and Thrash-Metal became quite unpopular
and was unfortunately replaced by so called 'Grunge-Music'. :(

Playing around with different music styles for several years and the band-lineup
undergoing some changes we were never really as serious again about pushing our stuff
into the world as we were in the early years of the band.
Who would buy aggressive thrash-music when everybody was feeling depressed?

So we kept on jamming just for ourselves since nobody else made the music
we like to listen to...

After the rise of Death- and Nu-Metal in the late '90s, the return of some great
metalbands like Agent Steel and Exodus and last but not least a major price drop of
digital recording equipment (Recording music in high quality is ALOT easier now!)
we decided it was the right moment to give a career in the music business another try !

TIME TO KICK ASS !
