Todd Anderson. Story
Founded in Marburg in 2004 Todd Anderson do a very outstanding version of modern European hardcore. but otherwise it is more than that.
Impressing but fragile walls of noise got built by guitars of Daniel Bubel and Thomas Blöcher could fall into melodic fragments in the next moment, and back. Loudand noiseless parts follow on each other and produce a powerfull dynamic of anger. This is the musically expression on a critical and intelligent songwriting with political apporaches. That´s the reason the band became a insiders´ tip.
After releasing a demo "Kampfschwimmer" in 2004, 2007 "Wenn die Botenstoffe streiken" marked their first album released with My Favorite Toy Records. It is a first careful try in the biography of the band. On their actual release "Zufluchtsort" (2009, Papership) they brought this concept to it´s maximum. Policy crushes on art, light got flooded by darkness. "Zufluchtsort" is the focal point of hardcore, screamo, emo and punk. Intense, emotional, angry and clear. It is the soundtrack to a permanent crisis.
