30 years of Still Patient? – 30 years of Gothic Rock.

Right on time for their bands anniversary, the gentlemen around front man Andy Koa are back with their opulent new album “Zeitgeist Weltschmerz”. Hypnotic guitars, powerful, emotional, dark synth sounds woven into a varied and driving rhythmic mesh – the perfect mixture for everybody, who values the familiar and is always hungry for something new. On the tribute version of the classic “Schwefel” song “Metropolis”, they worked with non-other than Horacz Bluminth, who also contributed the saxophone part in the original version.

THE HISTORY


1988

Still Patient? was formed in the beginning of 1988 by lead singer Andy Koa and guitarist Th.Kraniny. Their joint love of gothic rock bands such as The Sisters of Mercy, Fields of the Nephilim and The Mission influenced their first steps in music.

For a short time bassist Matthias Wolf was also part of the band.

1990

In 1990 guitarist Christian Ogrinz joined the band and some of the songs which appeared on their initial demo tape and later on their first album were written. From the beginning the band chooses to use a drum machine rather than a live drummer.

Later that year Christian parted company with the band to concentrate on his own projects and BecKes took over his guitar duties. Hedge Kaluza also joined the ranks on keyboards and Still Patient? played their first live shows (with Deine Lakaien and Das Ich).

After a few more live dates were under their belts the band compiled their first demo tape.

1992

In 1992 they signed to Hyperium and the first album “Salamand” was released.

This was followed up in 1994 by the second album “Cataclysm” which was also on Hyperium.

The band then decided that this was to be the final release for the label.

1996

In 1996 Alice in… signed Still Patient? and published the limited Chameleon EP, however the proposed new studio album never got further than the demo tape stage. The recorded material did eventually see the light of day on the “Nightmare Arrival” album which mainly consisted of some home recordings and exclusive material. The album featured the track “Shadow of the Empire” which was used on the soundtrack of the computer game Battle Isle III - Shadow of the Emperor by Blue Byte. A specially produced video can also be found here.

In the following years Still Patient? appeared on numerous European festivals such as the Wave Gotik Treffen (1996 and 1999), the Sacrosanct Festival in London (1996 and 1997).

They toured in Germany with Soul in Isolation and The Tors of Dartmoor and also played some festivals in Italy (Genoa and Rome).

In 1998 Still Patient? started work on their final studio album “Demondive”. At this point bassist AX of Minus Men joined the band. .

1999

“Demondive” was released in June 1999 by Schwarzrock. The band again played at the Wave Gotik Treffen in Leipzig before their last live performance at the end of 1999 on a festival line-up which included Crematory and Saxon among others.

Shortly after that Still Patient? disbanded. Andy Koa formed the bands Anodyne-29 and Burnsafe, Hedge Kaluza started the project Datasushi and M*Beck joined Boiling Blood. Hedge Kaluza and Bec Kes were also guest musicians in the Surround Pop Movie Polyradah by the German electro-band No Comment in 2008.

2012

2012 Bec Kes, Hedge Kaluza and Andy Koa decided to work on a reunion. 2013 Still Patient? starts with three new Members and rerecorded their Track MASCARA OSIRIS from 1992.

A handful of new Songs are written and the Band prepares to be back on stage. Just before their first appearance on Stage after 14 years, long term member Hedge Kaluza decided to leave the band due lack of time. Jörg, who joined the Band at their reunion as the first time real Drummer in the band history, also left the band.

2013

In autumn 2013 Still Patient? recorded a 5-Track EP at the Kohlekeller Studio in Germany, which contains 4 brand new Songs and 1 Song from their first release SALAMAND from 1992. The EP "Selective Perception" was released on January 31st in 2014.

At the same time the Band released the best of compilation “Retrospective-88.2.99” with digitally remastered and some exclusive Material from the first 4 Releases which aren’t available anymore.

2015 - 2018

In 2015 the Album "Shape Shifters" was released including the re-recorded version of "Mascara Osiris" as Bonus track which was recorded in 2012 exclusively for a compilation.

In the late 2017 the band returned to the Kohlekeller Studio to mix the new Album "Zeitgeist Weltschmerz" which includes a tribute Version of Schwefel's "Metropolis". The Song features Horacz Bluminth, who was the Saxophone player on the original recording in 1987. The Album will be released in 2018.
