Band: Makhaira
From: Frankfurt, Germany

Their formation story:
(Flo, vocals): "Makhaira was founded in Frankfurt, Germany in 2018 by Emil, Phil, and Bjorn who all knew each other from local bands around Frankfurt. The goal was to create something new and heavy. 

"The first EP was recorded with our old singer Chris who left Makhaira in 2021. I joined the band right after that and we started playing shows in 2022."

Their sound in their own words:
"Our main influences are Entombed, Nails, Harms Way, and END. But we also tried to add some sludge/doom and black metal elements in the music."

Latest release info:
"Our new EP is called The Gallows, and it will be released on August 9th via Death Farm Records. Recording, Mixing and Mastering was all done by Nighttime Productions. There will be 5 songs on it and we recently released its title track. The next single will be released July 4th."

Future plans:
"Firstly, we want to play shows, hopefully next year some festivals. We’re also currently planing our record release show for August, more news on that soon on our socials. After the release of The Gallows, we plan to write songs for the next record."

What other bands from their region should we check out?
"Blossom Decay and Neck Lock  both just released new EPs. Don’t sleep on them! You should also check out our friends in Truth Grip if you’re into hardcore."
