The Ethos of Behind the Rails

In the heart of Graz, a city renowned for its rich musical heritage and vibrant cultural tapestry, a death metal band by the name of Behind the Rails has been forging its path with ferocious determination and undeniable talent.

Founded in 2022, this quintet has quickly distinguished itself within the death metal genre, embodying the raw, unfiltered essence of the style while injecting their unique brand of relentless energy and precision musicianship.

Behind the Rails is a creation of five individuals who share a deep-rooted passion for death metal, a genre that demands both technical skill and emotional intensity. Roland Almer, with his guttural vocal assaults, leads the charge, embodying the anguish and ferocity that are hallmarks of the genre. Helmut Hofer and Peter Tödling, on rhythm and lead guitars, respectively, craft layers of dense, intricate riffs that are as innovative as they are a nod to the genre's pioneers. The low-end thunder provided by Gernot Fernitz on bass and the impeccable, aggressive drumming of Richard Klösch round out the band, creating a sound that is as cohesive as it is explosive.

The ethos of Behind the Rails is straightforward yet profound: they are not here to reinvent death metal but to perfect its execution. Their approach is a testament to their respect for the genre's roots, while also demonstrating their prowess in delivering music that resonates with fans old and new. Their sound is a brutal, unyielding force, a relentless assault that captures the essence of death metal while pushing its boundaries.

It is with great excitement that Kvlt und Kaos Productions announces an upcoming landmark event for Behind the Rails and the local metal community.
