2023-03-06 DobermannWe continue to present the bands that will play at our festival this year. Today, a few words about The House of Usher - were founded in 1990. The band's music finds its roots in the gothic or waverock of the 80s. The Mission, The Cult, The Sisters of Mercy, Killing Joke and Joy Division are reflected in The House of Usher's sound, which has been distinctive since "Cosmogenesis" and is dominated by guitars.
In general, the aim is to express an impression of vastness in the pieces, which, however, can sometimes turn into a feeling of loneliness. The CD releases are accompanied by short stories by singer Jörg Kleudgen, whose lyrics transport everyday observations and experiences to a meta-level.
