drown in frustration. although our name may sound melancholic
it by no means describes the mannerism of the band. rather, it
merely reflects the experiences and dissapointments that we have
had along the way. drown in frustration is: ralph - bass, steffen
- guitar, jens - guitar, andré - vocals and last but not least
michael on the drums. since 1996 with this lineup we have been
finding our way along our musical path. in 1997 the german indie
label "pateline records" released our first 7". with this record
we set sail on our musical journey, emerged deep in old school
waters. this was indeed our first step along our trip. the 7"
reached out in to many different harbors. alowing us to experience,
not only various audiences, but also to learn about ourselves
and our musical desires.
slowly the old school waters began to subside and our course changed.
after having matured over the year we landed in the new school
port. our style changed and we found ourselves floating along
side bands like snapcase and unbroken who had pioneered these
waters. although these bands are a great influence on our music,
we clearly stand on our own with our unique style.
after four years the long and stormy path came to an end when
we were signed to the cologne label "defiance records". in august
of 2000 we released our first mini-cd "the noise reveals what
is real". giving us a new start in our musical endeavours. bringing
us to present where we are currently working on our second release
