WHO WE ARE, BITCH!
The musical background of each bandmember couldn't have been more differ. At the frontline, singer Nicolaj Ruhnow who was getting into the biz with bands like TOKYO BLADE, DOMAIN, IRONY and NICK HELLFORT on vocals. His longtime fellow Denis Keller on guitar, who's mainly creating the musical style of MOJO BLIZZARD, because Stoner Rock always have been his inner homebase. Completed with Nino Hofmann on bass, Frank Hallok on guitar as well and Mauro Welfens on drums, MOJO BLIZZARD unfold their immense potential.
Style & Attitude:
Of course, c-tuning is definitely the core of our style. Fuzz-Sounds, spacy Flange-Effects, and distorted metal-like soli-sounds as it’s best. Bass and drums building an inseparable unit, a driving force. The versatile and intensive drumming is leaving enough space for each instrument. On top, very expressive vocals: falsetto, belting, grunting raspy parts as well as some soft and light tender moments with tons of feeling inside. An evil combination of Black Sabbath meets Pinks Floyd meets QOTSA, meets Iron Maiden, meets Candlemass? Definition: impossible! it's just MOJO BLIZZARD. Yes we know, it’s a thin line between self-confidence and cockiness,.. but hey, we give a fuck! It’s Rock’n’Roll!
From 2018 till 2019 we worked off our arses for a perfect live-set. All songs have been created within a democratic five piece collective. We putted
all our efforts into the songs, pushed all egos aside and so it took us only one year to write ten amazing and unique tracks. As MOJO BLIZZARD we entered the stage the first time in autumn 2019.
Straight after our first stunning live-experience in a sold-out venue, we decided to enter the recording studio „Abenteuerland“ to record our first masterpiece „LOST IN SPACE II“ in an absolute
live-manner. In the meanwhile tons of venues called up because they wanted us, us MOJO BLIZZARD *shrinnng*! Things turned out fantastic, without desperate pushing. We signed a record-deal with
Bluebird Records and Radar Music in February 2020, we have been nominated to present our live-recorded video at the London Video Award in 2020, from out of the blue we get our first recognition
from the UK music-press,.. for whatever strange reason. Guess we’re the good ones, aren’t we?! *irony* Anyway, it doesn’t matter if COVID-19 is trying to fuck us, as we will never give up,
this is our life!
After 1,5 years sitting at home, making plans, scratching' our heads while the pandemic was still roaring, our bass player Nino received a phonecall from RADIO REGENBOGEN2 called us:"Are u ready to play at our Festival?". In the meanwhile Mauro was recording his Drums for the successor of "LOST IN SPACE II". In fact we just had one week to prepare ourselves to get ready. It is phenomenal what a brain is able to store. Well,.. we think we done a great job, the crowd was intense, the host was enthusiastic, and it brought back that stage fever we've been longing for so long. We cant't wait to get back on the road. But first,.. our second album shall be done!
