February 7 2007

One of the most enigmatic bands of all time - the German quartet Pyogenesis - the second time in its 17-year history come to Russia with concerts.

Team Pyogenesis well known and the generation brought up on Russian MTV, and the true lovers of metal, punk and hard rock. The band has no clear-cut style of music, in different years, it was punk, hard-core, death metal and even rap.

Obviously, this is the secret of the worldwide popularity of Pyogenesis. From album to album the group radically changed their musical preferences and style of music.

In 1990, four young friends, led by Flo Schwartz, decided to create his first group. At that time, the guys played the most popular style - Thrash - metal. But the release of his debut album «Ignis Creatio Marz» (1993), the group changed its style dramatically and played Doom - Death with a focus on trendsetters - Tiamat and Paradise Lost.

By 1994, the group, as their idols, began to play Gothic - metal, and in 1995 the album «Twinaleblood» guys already full grunge fuck skillfully and with ardor.

World renown brought Pyogenesis album «Unpop» (1997) - This blend unfolding while the popularity of alternative and post-punk in the style of U-2. Their single «Love nation sugarhead», precedes the album, lasted for several months on the tops of the leading Germanic charts. On the title track was soon thundering shot video on MTV and VIVA.

The subsequent tour for the release of the album «Pyogenesis» warmed themselves «Social Distortion», and then they too began headlining gigs. The team took part in such festivals as the «Rock am Ring / Rock im Park», «With Full Force», «Pepsi Festival», «Bizzare Festival» and «Supercrash».

In the next five years Pyogenesis music gradually mutated into a California punk-rock (ala Bad Religion). At the end of the tour «Pyogenesis» released a new album, «Mono .... or will it ever be the way it used to be», pounding away on the line of his predecessor. Before writing the next command on the drive and left the band, Tim Wall, who presented in the «Liquido». Their places were taken by Peter Rutard and Tobias Morrell.

Album «P. .. Or Different Songs In Different Sounds »became a kind of compilation of reworked early things. Soon Flo organized his own label, «Hamburg Records». By 2002, «Pyogenesis» appeared bassist and drummer Mirza Kapidzik Brifmark.

On the last album of music Pyogenesis early 90's have only a general depression sound, but the concerts the band plays some other music. Their first concert in Moscow in October 2006, shocked the audience at one hundred percent. Pyogenesis played a great program for two-thirds composed of the first four albums. Crazy fun in the hall and on stage, great After - party this was their first concert.

The truth is that the general merriment goes all the limits. At one concert after the album «Unpop» Flo decided to destroy the drum set and broke his finger drummer. At another concert he fell off the stage, nearly broke his neck.

But Pyogenesis stand that would not only listen, but I personally view and tear at their concert. Nearest performance of this team will be held Feb. 11 at the club "Tabula-Rass.
