AN EROTICISM IN MURDER – A STREAM OF CONSCIOUSNESS IN D MINOR is Steorrahs 2010 debut album. It started out as a bundle of demo tracks, meant to test-run Malte Klein’s homerecording studio set up for Sleepcastrecords. Klein handled all the engineering, mixing and mastering, together with Andreas März. Initially it’s only März and Christian Schmidt, recording a few songs. But soon Nicolao Dos Santos would join the recordings and help turn a mere recording project into an actual band.
Beginning with the release show at Köln’s Bogen 2 venue Till Ottinger joins the band on bass guitar. Early highlights are the shows at Bielefeld’s Noctura Festival, Cologne Metal Festival or the 20 years anniversary showcase of Bonn’s death metal stalwarts Aardvarks, also joined by Valborg.
Andreas März | vocals | electric, acoustic & classical guitars | electric bass

“You already guessed it: the described will probably appeal to friends of bands like Opeth. Although the immpression I get is that Steorrah display a bit more musical finesse than the men around Mikael Åkerfeld.”Babyblaueseten.de
“STEORRAH present an absolutely promising debut album. Assuming a consequent evolution there will be a lot more to hear from this band.”Metal.de
