Biography

(2002 – 2006)

AUSHVITZ → SPINALCORD

Aushvitz, apparently named after the Polish town (Auschwitz is the German name for the nearby town of Oświęcim) which was the largest of the Nazi German extermination camps, is an indies band that seems to be on a break right now.
It’s very hard to put a label on Aushvitz, simply because most of their songs sound different from each other. In general, the majority of their songs are best classified as metal, however, they also produce touching ballads and piano songs.

Aushvitz was founded in 2002, by the members Kyoichi, Syu, Kon and A. All of the members, except for the drummer Kon, were previously in the band Valkyr. After that band split up in April 2002, and their vocalist joined Nana, guitarist Syu took over the position as vocalist in the newly created Aushvitz.

Even before they had released anything, A decided to leave the band. However, he did stay as a supporting member.

In September they released their first maxi-single, called “Akarui”. It was limited to 1000 copies, and sold out.
In December, they were featured on the compilation album “Yougenkyo –moon-“.

They had a few lives in 2003, and in February they released their second single, “Apeka no kairaku”, which was only sold live.
In April they released “Koi yabure, Suibotsu”, but a few months later the band’s activities turned silent.

    I like this band's music, I must say. I love Syu's guitar style from Animetal and Galneryus, and this little band here is quite cool too. Good to hear Syu playing different stuff and valorising his own vocals and grunts. Still, I think they could have chosen a better name; I'm absolutely sure that it wasn't meant as pro-Nazi (more probably it was supposed to be anti-nazi, judging by what Syu himself said about this), still most people don't realise and get the name "Aushvitz" as meaning exactly the opposite. I don't think someone who, in Galneryus, wrote about the epic Rebellion of the people in a whole land to overthrow an evil dictatorship by Struggling for Freedom under a Rebel Flag to bring forth Vengeance and Justice could possibly EVER be pro-nazi. XD

    @ The_Night_Head: what are ou talking about? just because own band named AUSHVITZ or Adolf or something they aren't Nazis! Syu (the singer from AUSHVITZ) told in an interview that this name was just supposed to commemorate this tragedy. and the band already changed their name into SPINALCORD. its really ususal for the visual kei scene to play around with Third Reich-stuff. the singer from Dir en grey went on stage with that "Arbeit macht frei"-banner or wear svastika-symbols. a lot of bands do this stuff without being Nazis! so think first before you write down those things.

    i think the name-change is really coward. they where now nazi-band. Syu just wanted to make a remembrance with this band. stupid asses who think this is a nazi-band. but maybe it was not so clever to pick this name because they never can tour through europe or something like that. the new name is fucking boring. some visual kei bands have better names... but i still like the music. its great!

    This is AWESOME! But I don't get the people who tag them as visual kei, j-rock etcetc... I think they're definetily thrash metal.

    The name Auschvitz, is the name of the death camp in Poland, where nazi's killed Jews in tens of thousands daily during the WW2. It's one of the biggest death-camps in the world. Auschwitz is in Oswięcim in Poland. Germans held Jews in there, made them work till they died, put them into gas chambers and mass murdered them in any possible way. Then they'd cremate them in special chambers and dig their ahses anywhere. They stripped them of anything valuable/ When You visit Auschvitz, or Oświęcim, You can see a chamber, large as a big living room, filled with hair, another filled with bags, that Jews carried with them into the camps, Yuo can see pictures of all those ppl walking in there, not knowing that in a few days they'd die a horrible death. If there was any1 opposing them, they shot them, any1 trying to beg for mercy, or run, they'd spit in his face then shoot him in the head. So that is what is wrong with this name. It's just a blasphemy to all those who died in Auschvitz. Nc.

    If rock that comes from Japan must be called "jrock" then by that logic the same labeling should applie to the rest of the world. Brazilian rock being Brock, russian rock is Rrock, italian rock Irock and so on.
