THIS IS SYDRA
20th of November 2018: Two young men sitting in a bar and having a musician date. Tim Gerfen made an advert online, to search for some like minded people to found a Thrash-Metal band. The singer Leon Haberstroh entered and SYDRA was born. The chemistry was perfect from the beginning, even if Tim just upset a glass of whisky. Until January 2019 the two found a drummer in Felix Siegmann, a bass player in Dominik Plein and a rhythm guitarist in Nick Haak. The rehearsals began by playing some Metal-classics, like „Seek and Destroy“, „Symphony of Destruction“ and last but not least „Raining Blood.“ The energy of this jams created the first two songs of the band: „No remorse“ and „S.D.I“ Because of the level SYDRA wanted to reach in the future, Nick left the band and Iven Mühlhaus entered the spot for him. For eight months the five guys wrote songs until their first chance to perform live. The live debut was on 3rd of August 2019. The feeling after the performance was incredible and felt like the first step the band took.
After some gigs in bigger and smaller locations SYDRA began to plan their debut album. „The Silenced“ was recorded from March 2020 in the „Milchhaus-Studio Müllheim.“ The production took 6 months until the release on 6th of September 2020. Meanwhile the album was made, the time was embossed by the COVID-crisis and the move to a new own rehearsal room. The band had the chance to perform on a livestream gig and participate in interviews, but not to play in front of the beloved SINNER family was very hard. After the album was finished Iven and Dominik left the band voluntary due to personal reasons.The three remaining backline members Felix, Tim and Leon searched for two new fellows. Janek Weinhold entered the position on bass and backing vocals, Willi Miller the spot as rhythm guitarist. Unfortunatly the stay of Janek wasn’t that long. He was replaced by Marvin Otec who will take care of the low ends. SYDRA is now looking forward to play as many concerts as possible and are in progress to write songs for the second album.
