Young fellows who grew up in the same village discovered the world of heavy music through 70ies and 80ies bands. Ever since they studied the genre – so much that one could say that they even absorbed it into their DNA. That is, roughly put, the genesis of the band “Hard Excess”.
These lads were influenced by “handmade” rock music – experimental 69 movement including hook studdled hits from AC/DC, Chicago blues, grunge and even poetry by Jim Morrison. But most dominantly the band has been influenced by heavy metal music. Back in 2012 the group played its first gig with a repertoire of cover songs from their role models: Judas Priest, Iron Maiden and AC/DC, to only name a few. Followed by a new assembly the band released its first CD in 2016 –“You Burn EP”.
Hard Excess see themselves as heirs of a music genre that seems to be critically endangered – classic hard rock mixed with heavy metal. Music that not only originates deep in their hearts, but also resonates in their own music – a high energy level withoutfrills, bare hard rock.Aside from successful gigs and concerts throughout Austria, for example at the “Local Heroes” band contest, Hard Excess was fortunate to furthermore play in Italy and Germany. The band even had the chance to gain work experience with the produced Mike Wolff, guitarist of the band “Kontrust”, which whom they produced two songs. Currently the band is planning an album production and is looking forward to playing live gigs again.
The fellows are passionate about displaying their hard work to a live audience. If you want to get a taste of what has been written above, join the ascending hard rock and heavy metal band at one of their upcoming events!
