Über die Veranstaltung
HONOR Formed in 2020, a hopeless time for musicians, these four Swiss thrashers, just reaching their twenties, set out to bring a breath of fresh air to the Swiss thrash metal scene.
With their brash music and loud statements on issues close to their hearts, they clearly stand out from other thrash metal bands of the current generation. HONOR is not afraid to challenge evil and injustice, even if the band risks being labelled provocative or extreme. Their lyrics are thought-provoking without losing the basic aggressiveness of thrash metal.
Rather than relying on simple, chromatic riff salads, the band emphasises engaging song structures and memorable hooks.
In the time since their formation in May 2020, the band has earned the title of Switzerland`s ultimate thrash metal newcomers.
OPHELIA`S EYE is based on Olimpia’s Eyes from the novel “The Sandman” by E.T.A. Hofmann.
Olimpia for us is a characterization for the goal we want to achieve with our music:
In the course of the book, Nathaniel’s perception of Olimpia changes as he observes her through a pocket lens in her room: “But
as he looked sharper and sharper through the glass, it was as if moist moonbeams were rising in Olimpia’s eyes. It seemed as if
only now the sight was ignited; more and more vividly and vividly the glances flamed.”
And toward the end of the story, Nathanel is enchanted by Olimpia. He calls her “heavenly-beautiful,” admires her every day, and
is desperate and driven by longing.
We, too, want to “enflame” the audience, bring them to life and cast a spell over them. Through our songs the listeners should
also lose the connection to reality - at least for a while.
