Equipment: Sennheiser e835
Influences: Megadeth, Savatage, W.A.S.P. and many more...

What's currently blowing the Speakers: THRASH and a bit of Death.
Favourite Godslave Lyrics: Because we can hahahahaha and Idolized aaaaaaaamaaaaazing! :-DDD
Best Godslave Experience: Godslave supporting ANTHRAX in our home town of Saarbrücken, THAT was a party!!
What's up besides Music: Hiking, Geocaching and board games
What excites: Dedicated metal maniacs having fun and party together!
What pisses off: Too much to mention.
Last Words: „This is dedication, pal!“ (from “Anvilised”).
Instrument: Violent string mutilation (Guitar)
Equipment: Epiphone Flying Vs (none better!), mostly playing the Wayne Static Signature with EMG 81’s. Nice long cables or Line 6 Relay G30 wireless for gigs. Dunlop 1,14’s plecs. D’addario Bright XL 9,5 – 44 strings. Peavey 6505 amp. Boss Noise Gate Pedal and Korg floor pedal tuner.
Influences: First and foremost Jeff Waters, this guy is unique! Ritchie Blackmore just to listen too and NOT play along... Everything began with Status Quo, leading to Metallica, Megadeth, Iced Earth and Annihilator, spreading to Death and Thrash and now getting back to 70’s Hard Rock.
Favourite Godslave Song: To listen to: I would ay "Idolized", the song is total mayhem from beginning to end with the best chorus and vocal performance in our history! To play: Also the above mentioned, such diversity in one song makes it always fun to play! From the old ones it would be "Insomniaddict", never gets boring even after all those years!
What's currently blowing the Speakers: Always something between 70’s Hardrock a la Deep Purple, Black Sabbath, Rainbow and Status Quo and fierce Thrash of bands like Warbringer, Kreator, Destruction, Havoc or Warbeast. Plenty of times much softer poppy stuff when I am in the mood or the contrary in shape of Dying Fetus, Pestilence and such.
Favourite Godslave Lyrics: "Green Zone", "Bloodbound Pack" and "Children of the pit", because those three describe EVERYTHING this band is all about!
Best Godslave Experience: The “Thrash, ihr Affen – komm mir nich‘ auf die Tour 2011” and the "WANTED - Thrashed and Alive" Tour. Touring with our buddies from HATRED and ERADICATOR and having the fun of our lives! Sharing all the ups and downs of a band and getting along amazingly. Can’t wait for the next part! For single event, it would be playing in front of 1000 maniacs in Saarbrücken as support of POWERWOLF and ANTHRAX the same. Experiences that are branded in my mind forever! Those wwere pure awesomeness!
What's up besides Music: WRESTLING!! I've been a freak for 25 years now and there's nothing better to relax with!
What excites: Best thing in the world: playing live and being on tour with the boys. Even better: meeting friends there. Yet better: playing for a rabid crowd! Nothing compares to that in life! Feeling the support of the Slavecrew is the best feeling ever!
What pisses off: Recklessness and lack of respect for others makes me sick to my brain and stomach. Most things in life that typical human behaviour turned to a pile of shit.
Last Words: "I fuck the past – I don’t need to look back to get fast ahead" (from "End of history")
Instrument: Heartwrenchingly, virgin-impregnating, heartfelt sonic-ear-hole-penetration.... and Assflute (Lead Guitar)
Equipment: Ibanez RGT6EX-IPT, Schecter Blackjack C7, Dean MLX7 (modified) ENGL Fireball 60 Head, Dunlop Jazz 3 Picks, D'Addario Strings my fingers and sometimes even my brain!

Favourite Godslave Lyrics:
„This is dedication That’s what’s taking me We’re gonna fucking do it It’s all we wanna be“
Best Godslave Experience: Getting to meet Cripper at Bonebreaker Festival 2014, awesome people! And the ride in the trunk the day after, because a car only has so many seats... lotsa good memories being on tour with the guys
What's up besides Music: My lovely Daughter, trying my best to get better at Engineering and Mixing in the shack I call a Home Studio, Poetry and trying to find the right balance between productivity and 'Dude'ing around
What excites: My beard. 3mg of Adrenalin straight into the vein. That or discovering new series to watch, good books to read, working on an idea at 10 pm and ending up with a complete song in the early hours of morning. And good food. And a nice pair of boobs of cause. But be warned: too much good food may cause a rather unpleasant pair of boobs. The unpleasant, hairy man-boob kind of boobs.
What pisses off: If there was a disease, which makes you puke all the time, makes you bleed from your anus, drying out your eyeballs, giving you ass cancer and causes your dong to swell but your balls to shrink, I'd call it 2016, using your little toe to locate furniture at night, being cought up in the gears of a capitalistic society, toilets without paper and browsers without an Ad-Blocker. That and people these days. And hairy man-boobs.

Instrument: Four strings of devastation (Bass).
Equipment: Ibanez SRX 360 BK Hartke 2500 Bass Head Line6 Relay G30 Wireless System
Influences: Basically the whole metal bandwidth! But there are still some Death and Black Metal bands from my teenage years, that let my heart beat faster!
Favourite Godslave Song: "Green Zone" - this is a killer song and I love to play it live! But also "S.O.S." is fucking neck-breaking and I love "God Slave The Queen" with its punk attitude.
What's currently blowing the Speakers: Type O Negative, Amorphis, Muse, Blitzkid, Children Of Bodom, Symphony X, Emperor, Keep Of Kalessin, Misfits, Morbid Angel
Favourite Godslave Lyrics: Also "Green Zone", because I learned in my life, how important it is, to have your own personal "green zone". Make use of it!
Best Godslave Experience: Metallergrillen 2015 - my very first show with the band and then also an open air. I was excited like hell, but when the show started, it was full of a blast! Great crowd and many friends in front of the stage! I'm really looking forward to collect more of those precious memories!
What's up besides Music: I'm quite a media and entertainment junkie, so I love gaming and cinema besides music.
What excites: Playing live! I'm really looking forward to enter the stage as soon as possible!
What pisses off: Ignorance!

Favourite Godslave Lyrics: Because we can
Best Godslave Experience: Only weekend on tour with us for the one of our two stand-in bassists: Kettersäch festival, Debauchery playing as headliner. Thommy and me standing at our Merch, Bernie and Meyer somewhere around, said bassist missing for some time - until the Hatred-guys spot him sitting right on stage, Debauchery's blood babe dancing around him; never seen such an ecstatic smile. After the show: Our bassist was permitted to take a shower in the same building as Debauchery and his babe. As he appeared behind a window blow-drying his hair, (a somewhat drunk) Bernie and (a somewhat more drunk) Meyer ran over a tiny wall with a tiny fence on top and across a small court to that window (and not that there was really any reason to run here). Bernie just jumped over said wall and ran ahead but Meyer got stuck with both feet in the very fence and fell down like a wet sack – what a sight...
What's up besides Music: Lots of music beside drumming (playing bass, guitar and singing in a choir), cycling, muscle training, playing tennis, reading.
What excites: The shower after a heavy show... ;-)
What pisses off: Missing roadies to set up my stuff on stage. In general: people who got too much influence on things they don't really understand...
Last Words: We mean what we say - And we could swear to death - We're gonna do it till we're old men ("Anvilised").
