The Metal Asylum Talks To….ElKremso

Can you tell us about the origin of the band name, a history of the band and a little bit about the various members?

ElKremso consists of three members (Mike Kremser, ElKike and Mario Cortes) who meta couple of years ago at university in Germany. Two years ago we formed the Band ElKremso. Since we did not simply want to cover songs we started to write our own songs. The first result of this was the song ‘Love Doctor’ which was released end of 2022.

Are you all from the same area? How did you get together as a band?

We are at least all from Germany and met at university.

Who are your favourite artists/bands and how have they influenced your own sound?

Oh there are many but in general I would say:

  • Metallica
  • Iron Maiden
  • AC/DC
  • Mötley Crüe
  • Linkin Park
  • Limp Bizkit
  • Böhse Onkelz

A good overview can be found on our playlist ‘ElKremso’s finest’ on our Spotify profile.

Did you always have the ambition to be a musician and in a band or did you originally have other plans?

Well, since we all started to play instruments we wanted to form a band. But before than we studied and applied for normal jobs.
