Teardown is an Austrian metal band on a mission to do away with the old, and usher in the new. That, coupled with a desire to inspire their listeners to never stop chasing their dreams, the four-member strong collective are pushing for change in all the right ways.Energetic, aggressive, and high-octane verses effortlessly are contrasted with supporting choruses and rugged instrumental segments.

Today a very fun cover Christmas song by the band Cleardown. The Little Drummer Boy (Christmas Cover) feat. Pluto’s Desert Road & Dreaming Of Tomorrow,

The song is a cover version of The Little Drummer Boy in different styles. There are acoustic, rock, punk and a hardcore part include. Each part features another singer with three of the four vocalists being guest artists. The song and the video was created independently. Dominik was the head of this project and he did the whole recording, mixing and mastering by himself.

«Together with the performance video, which we shot in our rehearsal studio, the song should put a smile on your face. By including other singers our goal was to drift into other genres and try out something new. We hope everybody can hear and see that the whole recording was a great experience and last but not least everyone involved had some good fun too».

«They say that the best way to create space for the new is to dismantle the old. This sentiment rings true for Austrian metal band Teardown, who collectively use music as a pressure release valve to escape from the social constructs of what passes as acceptable».

Consisting of founding members Dominik Windisch and Nikolaus Rothmund (guitarists), they have now been joined by Barbaros Teker (vocalist) and Markus Winkler (bassist). After the recordings of the EP drummer Mathias Unterberger had to leave the band due to a lack of time because of personal changes. Having all grown up in Vorarlberg, a region where metal remains a largely underground endeavor, the band offers a place of complete escapism for each member and is reflected in the passion they portray throughout their music.

Influenced by the likes of Metallica, Iron Maiden, Trivium, Linkin Park, and Gojira, Teardown’s eclectic approach to metal has resulted in diverse and distinguishable pieces of music that offer moments of familiarity as well as splashes of surprise. Energetic, aggressive, and high-octane verses effortlessly are contrasted with supporting choruses and rugged instrumental segments, all of which glue together to form an undeniable sense of groove. Lyrically, Teardown’s songs deal with both social and personal topics, always leaving room for interpretation from a listening perspective.

With live music adding an element that guarantees a further intensification of the band’s emotion, Teardown are now intent on sharing their latest material with the world.

2021 is shaping up to be a big year for Teardown, with the release of their debut single and the following Teardown EP release in Q1 of 2022, which will also feature a collaboration with local rap artist Jherip.


Om Ulf Backstrøm (6841 Artikler)
Mitt hovedfokus er musikk som er basert på progressiv tenking. Jeg er på ingen måte ensporet innen musikksmak, i likhet med intensjonen bak prog. Sjangerbegrepet er egentlig temmelig uinteressant annet enn til å gi en pekepinn om hva slags musikk det er snakk om i en anmeldelse. Jeg søker god musikk for å utfordre meg som lytter. God musikk til å trigge mine musikalske smaksløker, og til å sette i gang mine refleksjoner. Da er sjansen stor for at jeg utvikler meg og lærer, noe som bør være drivstoff for et hvert menneske. Fordi det å lære og utvikle seg er noe som tilfører livet en nødvendig porsjon "krydder". Slikt krydderet finner man blant annet i musikk. Ikke overraskende mener jeg at progressiv musikk har den fineste "smaken". På den annen side kan musikk med eller uten progressive elementer være godt nok til hverdags. Til fest derimot holder bare rendyrket prog! Må jo også få med at jeg rimelig kritisk, og jeg mener at det lages mye prog som er i beste fall uinteressant, og faktisk mye som er pinlig dårlig. Heldigvis oppveies dette av ekstremt dyktige aktører som for eksempel: Flower Kings, Mostly Autumn og White Willow, for å nevne noen tilfeldig valgte.
