1. British quartet
Addict's roots go back to childhood friends Mark Aston and James Denham. With Aston singing lead and Denham on bass, the two went through a succession of bands in their hometown of Cambridge. Relocating to London in the early '90s, they added Danish-born guitarist Nikolaj Juel and completed Addict's lineup when drummer Luke Bullen joined in 1995. The band signed to Big Cat/V2 late the following year after tightening up as a live unit. In early 1997, there was the release of a limited-edition EP, which was well-received by the press and earned comparisons to Radiohead. Enlisting producer David Bianco, who had come off working with Teenage Fanclub, Addict recorded their debut album, Stones, in Los Angeles, releasing it in 1998. Despite more favorable reviews, Stones failed to make much of an impact on either side of the Atlantic and Addict has been quiet since its issue. ~ Tom Demalon, All Music Guide
2. Deutsche Trash-Metal Band
The story of ADDICT… so far!
In the year 2013 Pat Schöne had the vision to combine the spirit of the 80’ and 90’ metal movement and the smacking sound of today. He found the right guys to realize his vision. The drummer was found in Ronny Zeche. With him Pat played over 20 years together in a band called “Never Face Defeat”. A bass player was found in Mike Wiederstein.
Pat, Ronny and Mike played together in the 90’ in different bands. He was also a founding member of “Never Face Defeat”. The last piece of the puzzle was found in Franco Amenta. A real hard riffing guitar player, who was a founding member of the metal movement around “Desaster” and his old friend “Infernal”.
ADDICT was born!
In March 2014 the first rehearsal had started and everyone in this room realized …this is it!!
After several short breaks, causes of insurances, the band had 6 songs together at the end of 2014.
ADDICT was ready to hit the studio! In April 2015 they went to the Big Easy Studio in Hennef.
In Frayo, the sound engineer, Addict found a brother in mind! He realized the sound, the band was looking for.
Storm Of The Dead
About the lyrics, one thing is to say: Don’t take it too serious! They are inspired by the typical texts of the 80s.
We are ready for more…
