There are at least three artists named Misanthrop:
(1) Misanthrop (Drum & Bass)
With more as 10 years of constant working on his own musical and artistic visions in the studio (both audio and video) Germany’s Misanthrop is no stranger to the international Drum & Bass scene at all.
He was caught up by the dark sounds and menacing beats of ‘drum and bass’ in the early nineties, when he decided to produce his own tracks under the moniker ‘Misanthrop’; a name that in his point of view gave him the freedom to use music as a medium to express personal experiences of human interactions.
With his hard hitting and distinctive sound his back catalogue ranges from successful releases on Renegade Hardware, over to Shadow Law, Cyanide, and up to Subtitles Music. He literally went from strength to strength and found his biggest success in the release of the mighty “Viperfish” on Subtitles Music, which among other things got highlighted by Andy-C countless times. Next to all of this his music gained steady support by international top acts like Andy C, Pendulum, Ed Rush & Optical, Teebee + Calyx, Phace, Mayhem, Noisia, Spor etc.
As DJ, the Stuttgart based musician has toured most of the world’s DnB locations, clubs and festivals. His sets are known for flawless mixing, deep cutting edge funk and enough energy to split an atom.
End of 2008 he decided with longterm friend and partners Phace to launch their own musical platform - NEOSIGNAL.
(2) Misanthrop (Hip Hop)
Liebe. Leben. Und Tod. Das sind die Quellen, aus denen die Musik des Künstlers Misanthrop entspringt, der seit 2000 unter diesem Solonamen aktiv ist: Rap in seiner ehrlichsten und schonungslosesten Form. Keine Pose, dafür Haltung. Kein selbstbezogener Größenwahn, dafür selbstironische Offenheit.
Misanthrop lässt die üblichen Stereotypen des Genres einfach hinter sich, verbindet lieber Musik und Texte zu (s)einer eigenwilligen Interpretation des deutschsprachigen Rap.
Die Alben von Misanthrop sind stets Versuche, die ganze Welt zu greifen, und wissen doch, dass die eigenen Arme viel zu kurz dafür sind. Als Hilfsmittel dient ihm daher stets ein Konzept, ein Blickwinkel, der die Welt auf den ersten Blick vielleicht etwas einfacher macht, doch durch den sich letztlich erst das wahre Chaos “Leben” erahnen lässt.
Misanthrop hat neben fünf Solo-Alben und diversen EPs bereits Songs für u.A. Bleubird, Audio88, Ceschi, Thesis Sahib, Epilog und Cocon produziert und war bereits im Vorprogramm von Szenegrößen wie Anti Pop Consortium, Buck65, Dälek oder Prefuse73 mit seiner extravaganten Liveshow zu sehen.
(3) Misanthrop (Metal)
The Munich-based band Misanthrop was founded in 2005 by Michael (dr) and Raphael (b).
In Chris they found a guitar player and at the beginning of 2006 Robert finally completed the line up. Unfortunately the band decided to split up with Chris. Haris became his successor (as session member). In spring 2008 the first demo „Das Große Sterben“ got released. Haris also became a firm band member. The band decided to get on with two guitar players and so, Stefan got the job. With this line up they were able to play the first gig on 28th December 2008.
March 2009 the band splitted up because of internal and musical reasons. Michael went on with his own musical ideas under the banner of Menschenfeind. Raphael joined both bands. Misanthrop found their new drummer in Ruben.
During autumn 2009 until spring 2010 Misanthrop played some regional live shows, alongside bands like Misery´s Crown and Hailstone. Unfortunately the had to split up with their drummer again, because of internal reasons.
Haris and Robert started to record the second demo, entitled "Unkaputtbar", anyway, by using a drum computer.
2011, finally they got their support behind the drum kit through Manuel, who was able to fit the complex artwork of drummer Michael and Ruben, and got a very strong own personal style into the band.
In August 2011 the band was able to do their release show of the album "Unkaputtbar", which brought Misanthrop to a new level of songwriting and set their state as a trademark of Munich's metal scene. They performed shows alongside Asphagor, Seasons in Black and Combustion.
Misanthrop was founded for materializing Michaels ideas of pure evil music. It came to a bastard of Death, Black and Doom Metal. Somewhere between Entombed, Asphyx, Darkthrone and Cathedral.
After the first split, Haris was able to bring in his own musical ideas. The old morbid structure was expanded by experimental and avant-garde music. So the songs even got more complex.
