Fresh Blood: Charcoalcity


Charcoalcity started as a one man project back in 2012 at Deezee' s private home studio. After years of playing in different bands he decided he wanted something else... being very fond of power metal and industrial he sampled his own drums, and started recording bassguitar, guitars, keyboards and his own vocals with backings... a very intense process, because it takes time if you want the job well done without other musicians...


Two years later, he really wanted to do something with the songs, so he asked his good friends Timo and Anthony to join, and started rehearsing... at first it was only for fun, but it became serious by releasing a teaser video, called “LEAVE”.

This song' s lyrics are about extreme terrorists giving their lives for their gods... 

It took only 3 hours to do some camerawork on 2 different locations, and a week to do some editing ( thanks Lexxie! ), all at low budget,  but with a very nice result... and it brought a lot of commotion on the net due to the subject and provoking images…


In 2016 the album " Greyscale" was born. The album got very nice reviews by many magazines and sold well.

In the meantime, another good friend, Dirk, joined the band to boost our live- sound with a second guitar!

Charcoalcity was going to release a second album in 2020, but due to the corona epidemic, we had to wait until now:

Our second album ‘Antibionics’ is out now on all streaming and download platforms worldwide.

And though it’ s not being sold on CD or vinyl, we do have a limited edition promo: Buy a shirt and get a free physical promo disc!
