Old-School-Heavy-Metal, that’s what BACKSLASH stand for and by playing neck breaking concerts they give evidence to just that! Galloping bass reminiscent of Iron Maiden and the two-part guitars let you time travel into the golden era of Thin Lizzy all while melodious singing of front man Clemens Haas takes control of your mind. A faithful and steadily growing fan base is apparent at every concert, and the fact that Blackslash is not about smooth-edged pop music is approved by their fans. Since the release of their “Blackslash EP” in 2011, the band seemed to have the finger right on the pulse and touched a nerve of the bored lunatics and winos around the South of Germany. After just a few concerts the record was sold out and therefore Blackslash started planning their debut album (“Separate But Equal”) that winter.
