from Osnabrück/Germany started as a
three-piece in 1994 and released their
first demo-tape “Angels of damnation” in
1996. But due to various private matters the
band was put on hold in 1998.
After a two years break and some line-up
changes, EMBEDDED came back to life with the
release of the Demo-CD “Fragments of horror”
at the very beginning of the new millennium.
Followed by a Split-EP with Disastrous Murmur,
some club shows all around Germany and an
outstanding live performance at the "Fuck
The Commerce IV"-Festival, EMBEDDED were
able to strengthen their reputation as a
passionate Death Metal outfit.
The release of their first full-length
“Banished from the light” on Revenge
Productions in 2001 pushed the band to a higher
level. Highly acclaimed by the European press
this album shows a more mature and brutal face
of the band featuring ten outbursts of blasting
Floridian-kinda Death Metal. The album sold very
well and EMBEDDED played the "Obscene
Extreme"-Festival, a couple of club shows
and toured Finland as well.
But in late 2002 the band was again shattered by
some massive line-up changes. After a short
period of forced inactivity EMBEDDED returned in
2003. Stronger than ever, the band showcases
their new found motivation in doing a
professional video clip of the
“Banished…”-Classic “Stench of burning
flesh”, published via YouTube.
After a year of hard work EMBEDDED recorded
their second album with Jörg Uken in his
Soundlodge Studios in late 2004. “A severity
divine” - released in May 2005 - was acclaimed
by the European press as an "impressive and
ultra-brutal mix of Malevolent Creation,
Immolation and Slayer". The album got an
overwhelming feedback and was able to
consolidate EMBEDDED´s status as one of the
best german Death Metal outfits around.
Another line-up change occured in 2006: Drummer
Jörg Heemann left EMBEDDED to focus his
creativity on Secrets Of The Moon. He was
replaced by Markus Renzenbrink, a long-time
friend of the band.
A couple of shows later on including a
co-headlining performance at the "Fuck The
Commerce IX"-Festival in 2006 and a
successfull mini-tour in the Netherlands
EMBEDDED entered the Soundlodge Studios again to
record their third full-length album.
After all "Beyond the flesh" was
finally released in May 2009 by german
underground-label DB Agency and got a lot of
good press: Rock Hard 8/10; Heavy Mag 9/12;
Metal.de 8/10; Bloodchamber.de 8/10;
Metalnews.de 5,5/7 !!!
But in the late summer of 2010 the last
remaining founding member André Danowsky
(guitar) left the band in friendship because of
private matters. Despite that the remaining band
members deicided to keep the flame alive and
currently EMBEDDED are working on a new album!
