Tribünal (Germany) is "Dis-Beat infected HM2 worship. Meat-free, god-free, drug-free." and "S." does all instruments and vocals. The main sound is: "Hellhammer, Discharge, Anti Cimex, Dismember, Entombed."
The following statements from S. explain more about this project. S. posted the full interview on the Facebook page. These are excerpts:
"I was sick at home for a couple of days back in 2012 and I listened to all kinds of old crust- and d-beat-albums to kill some time and after a while I had so many ideas for riffs and songs and lyrics floating around in my head, that I decided to give it a try and record them and do a little bandcamp-page. So it was all a „just for fun“ thing. But immediately after the release I got all kinds of positive feedback and so I decided to try and see what might become of Tribunal."
"In Tribünal the musical influences are pretty simple: oldschool swedish death metal (think of Entombed, Carnage, Dismember) and the classic d-beat sound (Discharge, Disclose, the D-Takt/Raw Punk stuff, Electric Funeral). Production-wise I really like the stuff Kurt Ballou does. It sounds massive and brutal but there are still dynamics and room for the music to breathe."
"I play in bands for almost 20 years now and I was a lot more active in the „scene“ about 10 years ago. So I am in no way an expert for underground metal in Germany as it is today. But I still feel very comfortable being around those people I met and got to know through the years and still getting to know some new faces, there are some awesome gentlemen and ladies around."
