Enslaved Mirror – interesting ‚Medolectrocore’ from Germany
What seemed to be only jam sessions in the beginning developed very fast to an own style of the band from Germany and led very quickly to success -for example a slot on the DOMINATION ONE FESTIVAL 2011, being on the sampler ‘NRW-MEETS-HESSEN’ (Brainbuster Music), being among the top 10 of the Emergenza Festival and a rapidly growing fan base on Facebook, Twitter and YouTube.
Furthermore, the band was on IBIZA and recorded a professional music video of their song ‚Follow me’ in 2012.
On IBIZA the band graduated a professional management and band coaching from 6 up to 8 hours every day for one week.
A lot of experience about melodic, deathcore and progressive metal was mixed with sensual cleanings by the members
Michél Geck, Mathias Strüber, Fabian Buschmann, Marvin Schwarze, Martin Schwieder and Marius Schulte.
Besides many song releases, the band tends to ‘extraordinary’ fan specials...
2013 the band releases a low budget music video of their cover of PSY’s ‘Gentleman’.
With their unconventional ‘k-pop meets metal’-production and their own podcast ‘EnslavedTV’ the band rejoiced over a clickboom of the YouTube-channel and many review requests about the band, bonus tracks like ‚H.A.T.E.’ and a post of EMP Merchandising of their ‘Gentleman’ cover.
Since June 2012 the Band was under contract to AgenturMMM-Artist-Management, awarded with the ‘Price of Innovation - IT - 2012’.
2014 shall be a great year for the band – certainly you can expect much from ‘Enslaved Mirror’.
October 2005: Michél Geck (Vocals/ Piano) started his musical career playing guitar, drums, piano and was singing in multiple bandprojects, where he concentrated in covering metal-classics.
In October 2007 was a local music project, where Michél met many musicians - one of them Mathias Strüber (Guitar).
One month later Mathias decided to join Michél’s project and played the guitar which was missing for this music. He also refined the band with his passion for composing own songs.
At the end of 2009 the nameless band became acquainted with Marv Schwarze (Keyboard/ Cello), who joined in 2010.
Many sessions and little concerts let the trio grew together, so that first successes did not stay away.
After getting Marius Schulte (Drums) into the team, they determined ‘Enslaved Mirror’ as the only authentically name for the band.
Fabian Buschmann (Guitar) supplemented ‘Enslaved Mirror’. Besides studying he leads his own guitar-manufacturing.
The ‘Mirror-Crew’ was completed by the entering of Martin Schwieder (Bass), a very talented bassplayer.
Their musical style at least...
Is such as unique as the band name itself:
Memorable melodies, fast riffing, brutal breakdowns and almost all techniques of sub guttural vocals acting together with progressive influences led to the extraordinary appellation:
This shows their style can’t be put into a box; it would need a ’multipart box set’ to put in.
'Enslaved Mirror' stands for a metaphorically mirror, held in front of society, which isn’t able to escape from, without fighting against problematics of distortion, prejudices and deception of for example mass medias in society.
For their spectrum of social criticism, the band confronts with everyday occurrences.
However the lyrics are written in timeless style and allow much flexibility in interpretations.
Among other things the ‘Mirror-Crew’ understand their work for being near to their fans, having fun and purposefulness pointing the way to the market.
