Alphatier 2​.​0

by Herzparasit



After the split in summer 2020, a lot has happened behind the scenes. After guitarist and composer EL TORO already left the band in 2018 for private reasons, his musical spirit continued to hover over the "heart industrial metallers" from the Bavarian capital. At the end of 2021, drummer MR.SM, singer RIC-Q and EL TORO met again for the first time after a long time. Immediately the sparks flew like back then. The motivation and energy were as present as before. Together they thought about a future for HERZPARASIT. The "poisoning" of Homo Sapiens was to go into the next round. They took much more time than before, worked on new ideas and new songs. Without pressure, without fixed guidelines, with more ease and new distribution of tasks, but with the goal to return.
The result was, among other things, the classic ALPHATIER in a new guise. Lyrics and music of ALPHATIER 2.0 shine in new splendor and take a completely different look at one of the very first songs of the three Munich parasites.
HERZPARASIT is about alienation, speechlessness, transience, fear of letting go, clinging to familiar structures; in short, about the fear and decay that haunts people, symbolized by a heart parasite that injects its poison into cells.
Founded in 2008, HERZPARASIT won the Maxi DSL Contest 2011 as the best band in Bavaria. After the release of the debut album FROMME LÄMMER in fall 2011 via ECHOZONE, GIFTTHERAPIE followed in 2014 and in 2017 the third album PARAKROPOLIS.

HERZPARASIT are also socially engaged. They have played among others on the VEIDSTANZ Benefiz (donations in favor of VEID e.V.) or at the TOY RUN Berlin for orphans.
HERZPARASIT also support the “Sandmänner” together with other scene acts and thus actively campaign against child poverty.
Live on stage HERZPARASIT already stood with Megaherz, Hämatom, Umbra et Imago, Unzucht, Stahlmann, Ost+Front, Hanzel und Gretyl, Tanzwut, Haggard, Schattenmann and many others.
EL TORO, RIC-Q and MR. SM convince with a freaky laser/LED show, costumes and a lot of power. The travel guide Marco Polo even praised them as a musical live highlight of Munich.
