Biography

Put together by remaining members of RISING NATION, who gained a certain following as well on the national than on the international scale, PUNISHED EARTH saw the light in the end of March 1997. Their major aim is to crush down the masses with their infamous, brutalizing music. The concept of PUNISHED EARTH appeared to be pretty much end-time oriented, lyrics mostly relating on what they see all around, and this is far of being nice. The music is a blend of different brutal music ranging from hardcore to grind/noise over death and industrial with an open door to all other styles of brutal music . … The line-up in the beginning was Fred (vocals), Axel (guitar), Tanya (bass) and Horst (drums). In November 1997, a first gig was played on the birthday party of their vocalist in front of a hand full of kids, mostly knowing nothing about grinding music. In February 1998, they record a first 10 tracks tape in “The Fridge”, their rehearsal place, on a 4 track machine with the help of Francis Habets. On 20th May 1998, they had the incredible opportunity to open for the US deathgrind legend MORTICIAN on their first gig in Ludwigshafen (Germany) followed by a live appearance on the WEE LEWAAT festival in August 1998. In October 1998, Horst (drums) decide to quit and leave the band. A new drummer is found on the same day in Manni - a more than worthy replacement. In February 1999, a second 8 tracks tape is recorded again in “The Fridge”, and again with the help of Francis Habets.
