Endstille is a Black-Metal-Band from Kiel, Germany. It was founded in the year 2000 by L. Wachtfels (Guitar), Mayhemic Destructor (Drums), Iblis (Vocals-2000 to 2009) and Cruor (Bass). Wachtfels and Mayhemic Destructor were playing in the Band "Tauthr" before, Iblis and Cruor were members of "Octaria".

They describe their music as "ugly, aggressive Black-Metal with the fire-speed of a MG42 and the power of heavy ship-artillery". Their lyrics mainly refer to their personal experiences and beliefs, as well as to war-scenarios and tactics at war.

Against many detractors, the band heavily dissociates from any right-extreme tendencies.


@Edit : About the nazi/political views.. heres what Mayhemic Destructor have to say about it.Its taken from an interview i did with him last year.Hope it will clear everything.

1 - Its very clear that Endstille is a war theme band,with all your albums covers,and some songs titles,is that because your band come from
Thanks to Vehemency, UMUR, Bosh66 for the updates

ENDSTILLE Infektion 1813

Album · 2011 · Black Metal

Time Signature
The deepest pace on earth...

Genre: black metal

War and blastbeats. I think these two words pretty much sum up what this album is all about. Endstille deliver ferociously brutal black metal with dense tremolo-picked guitars and strange and sometime dissonant harmonies. Repetition and monotony characterize this album, but I think this is intended, as it adds to the already oppressive and, to quote a fellow reviewer, miserable atmosphere that the music on this album generates.

This may sounds like your run-of-the-mill black metal album, and perhaps it is, but if you listen more closely, you will hear that there is a dark and strange inherent sort of melodic feel to many of the tracks - just check "Anomie", "The Deepest Place on Earth" or "When Kathaaria Falls". Also, there is some variation. For instance, the blastbeating sections are occasionally punctuated by D-beating passages, and a track like "Bloody H (The Hurt Gene)" is actually quite groovy in its own dark and evil way.

Endstille deliver miserable and oppressive yet extremely brutal and aggressive black metal on this album which reeks of pain and suffering. And, as we know, that is exactly what makes good black metal.

ENDSTILLE Infektion 1813

Album · 2011 · Black Metal

If war-themed lyrics, blood-stained imagery, and brutal German black metal are your preferred poisons, Endstille's Infektion 1813 should be one of your top priorities in 2011. Filled with blast beats, dense guitar layers, and brutal vocals, Endstille surely has cooked up one of the most lethal black metal albums in recent memory. Although the album loses a bit of steam halfway through due to its general lack of variation, the excellent musicianship and brutal atmosphere is surely enough to make this a worthwhile purchase for fans of the most deadly kinds of black metal.

Endstille plays a style of black metal focused heavily on blast beats, war-themed lyrics, and a simply miserable atmosphere. This isn't an album that will sink in on the first (or even second or third) listen, but after time more memorable hooks become visible. There isn't a whole lot of variation on Infektion 1813 - I would've liked to see a few more melodic sections, or possibly parts with different instrumentation, but I guess that somewhat defeats the goal of the album. It's clear that (aside from the slow-building closing track), Endstille intended on creating 45 minutes of the most lethal black metal possible. And if that was their goal, you could consider Infektion 1813 a tremendous success. It's also worth noting the excellent production and musicianship present on the album. In addition to the powerful and clear sound, it's clear these guys know their instruments well - the drumming from Mayhemic Destructor is particularly impressive to these ears.

From my own subjective point of view, Infektion 1813 can get a bit monotonous and (dare I say) boring, but there certainly is something to be said for the amount of quality in this release. Fans of brutal, dark, and war-based black metal should definitely take a look into this quality German act. Season of Mist made a wise choice with picking up Endstille - I have no doubt this band's fanbase will increase as a result of the signing. For this fairly average album, I'll play my 3 star card. A more unique and varied sound would gain Endstille more praise from this reviewer.
