long time no see… a quick update!

Most significant part of this news entry: Painstaker is a five-piece again… Our new drummer’s name is Michi and he’s also part of the Munich-based Brutal Death Metal band Sins Of A Murder – Stefan joined the band as a new guitar player two months ago and we feel like having a real good vibe and having a strong and consistent line up.

Digging deeper in earlier 2014, we had some real cool trips – the weekender in Czech Republic was memorable and we had an amazing time on and off stage! Moreover, we had a show in Straßkirchen, a weekender in Vienna (Austria) and we played some local gigs (e.g. at the Glockenbachwerkstatt, Kafé Marat).

Getting back to present time – we were so damn proud to experience a highlight in the short history of Painstaker: we were confirmed as opener for the Napalm Death show at the Backstage in Munich – needless to say it was a blast!!!

A quick update should be shorter – but damn, there’s been quite a lot things happening in the band.

So, finally, we are rehearsing some songs off „Terminal Ferocity“ we have never played before – and a compilation is about to be released, our contribution will be „Drag Race“!

Stay detuned!
