All the Neue Deutsche Harte bands out of Germany pretty much represent everything I love in music. Their influences are pretty much the same as mine. So I knew I wanted a German sounding name as a way to pay homage I guess. I know it’s kind of a cliche in the genre to have a german sounding name, but hey – that’s part of the fun too.
“FleischKrieg” translates to “Flesh War” in english, which I think pretty much describes the situation here on planet earth. There is always someone or something trying to steal your blood, sweat, and tears away. Life on this planet is a battle for self-preservation and sovereignty. Most of the themes in FleischKrieg songs are centered around this concept.
