FLIEHENDE STÜRME is the the german Wave-Punk band as such. Arisen from the just as legendary hardcore punk band CHAOS Z in the mid-80s, FLIEHENDE STÜRME continue on the one hand with the tradition of their hard, uncompromising punk style from the earlier days, but also use on the other hand electronic elements like drum machines and synthesizers and create that way a composition of germanspeaking Punk and Wave. Until today they have consequently developed their own incomparable style. FLIEHENDE STÜRME has earned with their uncompromising sound an absolute exceptional position in the entire Independent and Underground Scene, from Punk, Alternative and Wave to Gothic.
Until 1995 the band was consisting of the brothers Andreas and Thomas Löhr, both still from the CHAOS Z times. After the death of Thomas Löhr (shortly after the recordings of the album “Fallen” ˆ 1995) Andreas Löhr continued with FLIEHENDE STÜRME, at the studio as solo project and on stage with live musicians. After the release of the album “Himmel steht still” in 2001, Andreas Löhr left Germany and withdrew to Portugal, but not to finish his musical career. As a result, terriffic new albums emerged at regular intervals and he also returned to Germany for numerous concerts over and over again.
2011 FLIEHENDE STÜRME present their new album “Warten auf Raketen”, in contrast to the previous albums this one was mostly recorded by the complete band, now again grown to a trio with Jens Halbauer on drums and Uwe Hubatschek on bass.
Once again the band “re-invented” itself and nevertheless the tracks, all written by Andreas Löhr, have got from the first song “Sterne” the absolute typical recognition value. Manic guitar riffs and the distinctive voice as well as the hammering bass lines from Uwe Hubatschek and the driving and elaborated drum beats from Jens Halbauer impart the special sound to the tracks. Brute and angry, but also floating and melodiously.
