Bashdown was founded 2018 and evolved pretty fast to a serious band in the Metal/Hardcore scene.
Even if Bashdown is a newbie they have a descent and clear vision about their sonic image.
Brutal and thriving but groovy!
Outstanding are the ferocious vocals from singer Helge Haß which have been compared in some reviews to Phil Anselmo‘s voice.
The wall of guitars comes from Martin Blankenburg who was playing guitars forTreibhaus and Hate Squad in the past.
Florian Krause is underlying Bashdown‘s aggressive groove with bass.
The new member in the band is Janis Haag from Berlin who joined Bashdown on drums.
With their debut Album „A New Set Of Problems” short A.N.S.O.P the musicians from Hanover/Germany gave proof how Hardcore/Metal sounds in 2019.
The first live appearances e.g. (Winds Of Promise, Nasty, Hate Squad, Warpath) are completed successfully and demonstrate that Bashdown is transcribing the energy from the studio recording to the stage and furthermore.
Due to the Covid 19 pandemic Bashdown had to cancel a lot of shows planned for 2020 but used the free time to record new material.
With the upcoming single „Honestly” and the upcoming album „PushingThe Envelope” Bashdown is showing an amazing evolution in songwriting and sound.The new material sounds more mature and is heavily influenced by metal in general and less by hardcore.
The new material was produced and mixed by Kai Panschow and mastered by Eike Freese (Heaven Shall Burn, Eisbrecher, Deep Purple) @Chameleon Studios Hamburg.
The future looks bright for Bashdown.
