Biography

Denmark (1994 - )

Raunchy was founded in Denmark, in 1992 by Jesper Tilsted, Jesper Kvist, and Morten Toft Hansen, who start jamming, playing mostly cover from bands like Metallica and Slayer. Lars Vognstrup and Lars Christensen join in 1994, and in 1995 they record their first demo, at Borsing Recordings in Århus. The song “Space Story” from the demo is later released on the compilation CD Extremity Rising vol. 1, a rock compilation from Serious Entertainment. Two demos (and two more Extremity Rising inclusions later) the band finally get their record deal, with Mighty Music’s sub label Drug(s) in 2000. A few months later Raunchy enters the Aabenraa Studio with producer Jacob Hansen to record Velvet Noise. In 2001 the album is released in Scandinavia and is very received by the press. After the release Jeppe Christensen joins the band.

2002 proves to be a crucial year for the band: as the first Danish band ever Raunchy signs a contract with one of the world biggest metal labels, Nuclear Blast Records, who release Velvet Noise is released in Europe. Raunchy plays at the German festival Summerbreeze. They record a cover of Wham!’s “Last Christmas” and a new song called “Decemberklar” for Denmark’s National radio, produced by Tue Madsen at Antfarm Studios. The songs prove to be very popular. Raunchy also performs live in the radio-studio; the performance is taped by Danish Television and broadcast as well. In 2003 the Velvet Noise is released in North America, and in the summer the second album, Confusion Bay, is recorded, again with producer Jacob Hansen.

    It has been awfully quiet for a band that's about to release a new album in 6 weeks.

    Really intrigued to hear the new singer, as I haven't been able to find anything with him using harsh vocals...only pop covers O.o

    The next album will likely be something different, but if it follows the same progression that we saw with the last 3 albums, it will be something to behold indeed.

    i'd like to have another "a discord electric" - it really was one of the best albums in the last decade!

    For me, three years later and A Discord Electric still sounds fresh and exciting. It's probably one of my top 3 albums of, at the very least, the last decade.

    Still can't get into A Discord Electric. (Give/take) Three years later and it is little more than disappointing. I hope Kasper goes full force into new The Arcane Order material (where, in my opinion, he really shines) and the new vocalist brings a refreshing change. Anything but another A Discord Electric.
