Bounz The Ball
A few months later another band called "Chaos Clan" fell apart. Its lead singer and guitarist, all in one, was hoping to join a new gang of musicians. As an UNION's members' old pal he was soon accepted by the group and became its frontman. Finally - the missing link of chain was found, the circle was closed, the puzzle was completed.
The change of the bands sound, style and name was the birth of BOUNZ THE BALL. After only a few weeks of practising, tuning in their instruments and adapting their voices, BOUNZ THE BALL performed their first live gig at the Brainpain in 1997. Surprised and impressed with extremely positive reactions of the audience the band realized they could work together pretty successfully. From then on BOUNZ THE BALL went through numerous live shows were their nasty beat and hard chords made the audience mosh the pit. In the year 2000 their first full-length debut album "Companeros de Vida" was recorded.
The dye was cast. On 1st of Febuary 2001 "C.D.V" was released. With a little help of clowns and artists the one and only "Grazian Hardcore Circus Show" was done. Unforgetable! So many (inter)national shows were played to promote the record. The band worked out some new songs for new projects.
In the year 2002 the band decided to record their new songs to reach the next level and find new label partners. The songs were recorded in Febuary 2002 and were mixed in march 2002. BOUNZ THE BALL, and two DIY labels like RISE OR RUST Rec. (Aut) and HORRORBUSINESS Rec.
(Ger.) released the new five track masterpiece on 15th of August 2002. They called these old school masterpiece WHEN WE WERE KIDS... and is one step forward for the GRAZIAN HARDCORE GODFATHERS. Those songs are the futurehyms for the next pit and lyrical battlecries for a brand new revolution.
More music in the songs and more heart - core in the lyrics made us hungry for more. In the years 2003/04 the ball rolled through whole Europe. Countries like Germany, Suisse, Holland, Belgium, Croatia, Slovenia, Italy and we usually tour the whole year. Festivals like SUCKS´N SUMMER 2004 (ger) and SICK OF SILENCE 2004 (Sui) were done by THE BALL In the year 2005 their first one COMPANEROS DE VIDA got re-released in April 2005 by SUPERHERO/TRASHMARK.
Bounz The Ball played their OMERTÀ Tour in the end of 2005 together with ENDSTAND (Fin.) and LAST HOPE (Bul.). Their last tour in May 2006 through Austria together with ENDSTAND again was called "Armed To The Teeth" tour 2006. After some local shows THE BALL played the last shows on 16/17 th of September 2006 in their hometown GRAZia...IT WAS A BOUNZ! Read more on Last.fm.
