“What band could easily walk on to a festival stage and have the whole crowd excited within minutes, being just a two piece band of bass and drums?” asks a reviewer of the magazine Vampster, deeply impressed by the band´s performance on the 2006 edition of the Doom Shall Rise Festival. There seems to be a tradition establishing itself of late, even when most of the bands don´t have a certain sound in common but a similar approach. And let´s get this straight; as soon as a two piece band pops out of nowhere it seems to create some outstanding, well thought and somewhat avantgardistic approach to music. Might have something to do with the idea itself, stripping a lineup down to the bare boned minimum to limit yourself and then compensate it with overwhelming show-off of talent. Beehoover being no exception to this, urrrm, rule.No, they don´t sound in any kind of sense like any other band you heard before. If we would have to invent a category we would just name it outstanding music.
Too many influences, incorporations and approaches feed back from Beehoover´s music: there certainly is a huge Krautrock love to discover in their songwriting, but without the laissez-faire attitude, and technically spoken, a whole lotta more bass. You can discover the signs of Heavy Psychedelia as well as Americana and then of course they bow down deeply before the throne of Doom, it´s forefathers Black Sabbath and the like but then lift themselves up into the realms of Avantgarde Doom and Jazz which f.i. Stinking Lizaveta showed us.”Its melancholic, painful but stil full of hope. It´s angry, pushing and very epic. – it makes you fully addicted as it is so natural, so human, so emotional” – has been dubbed by an enthusiastic listener and live eye witness on this year´s South Of Mainstream Festival, which Beehoover conquered again in one strike.
Beehoover consists of Claus-Peter Hamisch (drums) and Ingmar Petersen (bass), both also active as the rhythm section in German Traditional Doom stalwarts VOODOOSHOCK. But Beehover isn´t their “side project”. Beehoover is a real, fully operating band and existed long before both joined VoodooShock. Just for the record. Anyway, Beehoover have self-released two EPs so far, each one consisting music worth a full album in length. So it was about time to actually come out with a proper album. Exile On Mainstream jumped on the boat and we are proud to announce “The Sun Behind The Dustbin” as Beehoover´s official debut album. It contains of 10 soulful anthems in the above described manner, incorporating a serious load of your favourite styles. It´s progressive, it requires advanced thinking and the will to dig deeper into it´s inner structures. If you are willing to you´re gonna discover a real beauty. Promised.
