Formed in 2018, Singapore-based black metal band Sprengkopf began as a solo project by Sieg aka Bloodcurse of the band Ilemauzar. Sieg is not a drummer and refused to use programmed drums for the studio recordings so approached long-time friend, Sven von Stein aka Sobron Haki, of Indonesian bands Panic Disorder, Kill Athena, and Abonation. Sven von Stein was also Ilemauzar’s live drummer. The lineup was almost complete when Tremor Av Kaos (Arbitrary Element, Cry5alid, ex-Impiety, ex-Ilemauzar *Live*) & VKD (Welkin) joined to take on second guitar and bass duties. The whole lineup couldn’t do without a notable face on the vox and was completed when XIII aka Henri Castellano joined the band. XIII is a descendant from Cebu, Philippines but has been residing in Singapore for the longest time and is a brother-in-arms with Bloodcurse since 2013. Thus the lineup was complete.
The band has just released a new single/music video for a track entitled ‘Anthem 666’ which will feature on the band’s upcoming debut album under Singapore cult label, Vrykoblast Productions, between Q1-Q2 2023. The song is about “the depiction of the apocalypse caused by world “leaders” greed, politics, and religion. The ugly truth no one wants to accept.”
