The hot and courageous snorting fighter sounds of these deeply upright ones have developed into something very special until today. And not only the name of the band is an absolute program – even the foundation became a sworn ritual.
Since 2007, everything at EISENHAUER has been revolving around the timeless ideals, values and powers that have always been embodied by impressively booming electric guitars.
On the second album with the striking title “Blessed Be The Hunter“, the four men present themselves with mature material from the most interesting side of playing culture so far.

Their heroically charged to the point of bursting, doomy and typically Teutonic Heavy Rock with a continuous, catchy and melodic Metal edge captivates with the seal of approval ‘Real Handmade’.
Everything is ceremonially crowned by Waxe’s exceptional masculine voice: a singer who is thoroughly inspired by his cause, who rides the high walls of sound and symbolically leads his companions through the deepest valleys.
Waxe always bows down before big, dark and soulful voices like Ronnie James Dio, Glenn Danzig, Eric Wagner, Jim Morrison and Johnny Cash.
Ase, who also put his heart and soul into “Blessed Be The Hunter“, brings in his resolutely commanding bass lines as energetically as if he had been born for it alone. His art on the thick strings lacks neither the necessary power nor dexterity.
And with the impressively effective Johann, EISENHAUER have a powerful heavy worker as hammering machine in the line-up, who, like a war drummer, leads all songs into the decisive battle! (Markus Eck)
EP “Horse Of Hell”:
5 / 5
“… ‘Horse Of Hell’ … in short, the song really captured me … because besides the really well done instrumental parts, it’s especially this incredibly brilliant voice that Christian ‘Waxe’ unpacks here … both in content and musically far ahead and the change more towards riffy rock is perfect … especially the vocals are the final touch and for an own production the whole thing is also very good.”
(Harte Musik DE)
4,5 / 5
“… in the end, everything feels like a mix between Swedish Mustasch and German Rammstein but still manages EISENHAUER to their advantage to have his own twist on it all …”
9 / 10
“… sometimes similar to the hazy Stoner Metal or Doom landscapes Black Sabbath or Candlemass would unleash … ‘Eisenhauer’ is a perfect example with its smoke filled riffs of pure glory between bouts of Heavy Metal speed and a sixties Rock guitar solo with matching mono sounding cleaner distortion about four minutes in, signaling a change to subtle early Iron Maiden heights similar to ‘Hallowed Be Thy Name’ in so many ways … one of the more vital releases to sneak through the underground for 2015.”
4 / 5
“Energetically and powerfully (especially vocally) the silver disc ‘Horse Of Hell’ turns its rounds in the player and apart from audible borrowings from Running Wild or Iron Maiden in the song ‘Never Surrender’ EISENHAUER remain quite independent and musically consistent over the length of the EP.”

“What makes this album stand out are the vocals, as they contain some of the most interesting vocal combinations I have heard lately … they range from simple melodic singing to some full scale Heavy Metal singing … the guitars are compressed and really good to hear in the choruses … contains four songs with about 25 minutes of material, but even with this maybe short length of the album, it does not lack in quality in both songwriting and mixing departments.”
(Dutch Metal Maniac)
78 / 100
“EISENHAUER is an original band … I liked very much the blend of Heavy and Doom Metal they play … with influences from Southern, Speed and Thrash Metal … I also loved their calm atmospheres and their melodies … that’s why I think ‘Sail My Soul’ and ‘Horse Of Hell’ are two great songs … and also the other two are very good … ‘Horse Of Hell’ is a very good EP … and I gave it 78, on a maximum of 80 for the release shorter than half an hour.”
(Heaven Of Heavy Metal)
7,5 / 10
“Great EP !”
7,5 / 10
“Meanwhile the steel beater’s disc accompanies me almost every time I drive … extremely thick reef work … fat and broad-legged … friends, that sounds so much like Grand Magus that I would put EISENHAUER right as the opening act of the next tour of the Swedes.”

“‘Horse Of Hell’ is an above average job …”
