Biography

The band is a new project from the musicians behind cult acts like Drudkh, Blood Of Kingu, Hate Forest, Dark Ages and such, but Rattenfänger is a different beast entirely.

The debut album, entitled Epistolae Obscurorum Virorum, is a masterpiece of old-school death metal. Rattenfänger's sound is pitch black and bone crushingly brutal. It is Death Metal in its original form - and it is devastating. Inevitably there will be nuances from the members other projects, and comparisons can also be made with bands such as Celtic Frost, early Darkthrone, Asphyx, Winter, Bolt Thrower and Nihilist amongst others, but Rattenfänger, is the epitome of old-school death metal and the album has its own, very distinctive, sound.
