Actuation through Differentness

„Actually everything is different“ knows guitarist and songwriter Nils Tinnemeyer in Maintain to report about the second album and meets with the nail on the head in such a manner that this Mantra could be stung in addition to his other innumerable Tattoos. The five metalheads from North-Germany are already different in quite everything since their establishment in the year 1998.

At that time in the lowlandses of Lower Saxony it were first the musicians, who were different. They differed from their school fellows, friends and the remainders of the villages, in which they grew up. That became already apparent in the fact that Nils and Co. were interested in a music direction called hardcore. A music, whose energy is flogged point-exactly in maximally three minutes in most brutal speed from the boxes and that transports something in its texts, a message. Bands such as Biohazard led into the scene and thus to Earth Crisis or Snapcase and finally into the local youth centres, where also local Bands were into this style of music. Inspired by their sorroundings the young men founded the band Maintain and proved fast that they were also here again something special. Because although the statement and raw power of hardcore stood close to them, they were not convinced of the technically rather simple style and turned to Metal as the second inspiration. „There were many bands in our surrounding field that played, but we always were already more into the Metal- Influenced style such as “Turmoil” for instance.
