Dark wave, Synthpop, Art rock. Maybe. Drawers for the ones who need them. There hasn’t been a clear concept for the thing we do, although the electronic ambience and possibilities always had a great impetus on our work and was one of the only thing that persisted since the beginning. Guitars come and go, some electronic Gothic notions took their place and left as they had come. Samples took their place and were reduced to tiny snippets, not to be recognised any more. The sound and attitude of Days of Triumph’s music changed with the conceptions of sound.
The tale of ‘Days of triumph’ reaches back to 1990, when initial members Jan Brähler and Markus Hofmann made their first musical ventures with ancient Yamaha-Keyboards, Atari_STs and cassette-recorders. Back then they met each other in school and learned both had performed in several musical projects. The emerging ‘Days of Triumph’ was at first conceived as a cliché pop project among others. But the cliché lasted over the years and expeditions into punk, rock, ‘Schlager’ and strange fun things were various, short and products got lost over the years - we'll make you think. 2001 brought a change in the line-up, when André Kasprzak joined the band for some vocals, guitars and lyrical work and finally became a full member.
Have you performed in front of an audience?
Never before. And perhaps never in future. But we never say never.
