Arsen aka Konig Der Monster

Arsen aka K├Ânig Der Monster comes from Germany (out of Bremen and Versmold respectivly) and plays a metallic style of hardcore/screamo with a slight somewhat crusty influence. Their sound has a heavy and very dark edge, which might make you think of bands like Uranus coupled with some of the classic US crust bands like His Hero Is Gone and Tragedy along with some of the German metallic hardcore stuff. The members are/were: Sabine on vocals, Lars on guitar (both of React With Protest fame), Marc on bass and vocals, Chris on drums and Arne on guitar.
