Biography

The North of Germany, Leer/East Frisia (1999 – 2010)

Located in The North of Germany, Leer/East Frisia based -band DESPONDENCY was founded in the spring of 1999 by Dirk Janssen (drums) and Steffen Ilm (guitar). Approximately two months later vocalist Konstantin Luehring, Heiko Lewin (guitar) and Patrick Schwarz (bass) completed the young band. After some little quarrels in the line-up Heiko is nowadays playing bass, and Mike who joined the band in early 2002 is responsible for the second guitar. The music of DESPONDENCY can be described as strongly influenced by the brutal style whilst the band tries to mix the inspirations of single bands in order to create an own unique sound - the DESPONDENCY style! Nevertheless, as we take it, comparisons with other bands of this genre cannot be avoided. DESPONDENCY only plays the music they like and would listen to personally - brutal, fast, right-in-your-face ! Lyricwise, the band deals with the hopeless existence of the vermin called humans on planet earth. Thus the lyrical themes cover anything from aggressive, hate filled descriptions of absurd modern reality to spotlights on hidden instincts of the human mind resulting in unimaginable brutality and even to a few surrealistic hints at the hypocrisy and falsehood of religious syndicates, all summarized to a reflection on the total worthlessness of humanity.
