Bunghole - Biography

BUNGHOLE are a crossover thrash metal/ hardcore band from Düsseldorf. Their sound is influenced by bands like PANTERA, SEPULTURA, PRONG, FEAR FACTORY, ENTOMBED, PRO PAIN, SICK OF IT ALL and genre heroes like SLAYER, VIO-LENCE or CRO MAGS.

The line-up consists of singer Patrick Pagliaro, guitarist Torsten Svejda, bassist Tobias Habel and drummer Stefan Mattheisen. The musicians are not a blank slate: Three of the guys previously played in Düsseldorf’s Stoner/ Sludge band SLOMIND, who released an EP and two albums via Eternal Sound Records / SPV. They played successful shows as support for bands like New Orleans heavyweights CROWBAR, TROUBLE and EYEHATEGOD and they entered the main stage of the Metal Days in Tolmin/ Slovenia.

In 2020 they released a first demo called “Asleep At The Wheel”, before they recorded their first album entitled “Preparation For Damnation” in studio in March 2020. This bastard offers 10 songs, that remind of early SEPULTURA, SLIPKNOT or PANTERA mixed with hardcore and high speed thrash. The first shows with the Las Vegas band HEMLOCK were already booked, but then got cancelled due to the Corona crisis. BUNGHOLE is looking forward to release their first album via FTWCTP records in 2021.
