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) and Cruor (Bass). Wachtfels and Mayhemic Destructor were playing in the Band "Tauthr" before, Iblis and Cruor were members of "Octaria".ENDSTILLE GENRES
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 Germania?,any links with a possible political view?or its just because for Endstille,War is include into Black-Metal concept because of its Destructive meaning?
MD :Our music sounds like a war. There is no politically thing in it. And everyone who says that Endstille is a Nazi band doesnâ€™t know anything. We are not from Germania, like you say. We are from Slesvigland. Itâ€™s between Denmark and Germany. I cannot identify myself with Germany. In Germany there are Bavarian and Saxon people. Everything looks so Kraut-stylish. This is nothing for us. The mentality from the people here in Slesvigland is more like the Scandinavian way of life.
