RIOT IN THE ATTIC | DISSMELAND | THE HIDDEN SPIRIT – April 27 2023 – Hamburg Drafthouse


On this evening three bands with obvious stoner influences will play, but they also have other music styles in their repertoire.
Leave the drawers at home and celebrate the music!



(Stoner / Heavy Rock)
Riot in the Attic’s second album “Those who don’t belong” will be released on 11.11.22 and is a concentrated load of heavy rock, what wants to be brought to the stage.
Riot in the Attic are unpretentious, loud but dynamic, rough and yet melodic –
a world of their own between Stoner Rock, Hard Rock and Grunge.
With a portion of light humor but also the necessary seriousness, the trio from Cologne has been playing their way into the hearts of rock fans since 2014.
About 100 gigs, 2 EPs, 2 albums, positive reviews in international press, festival appearances, support gigs for international bands and a worldwide steadily growing fanbase testify to the future prospects of Riot in the Attics.
The hard working band knows how to take their listeners on a very special journey.


“DISSMELAND is Hamburg’s first and only `stoned G-Punk ́- band. Since their formation a few years ago the three-piece boy-group continuously destroyed boundaries between genres and now comes along with a rough and noisy mix of sweat draining rhythms and rhymes. Press play! Welcome to DISSMELAND!”

DISSMELAND is a 3-man noiserock band from Hamburg, Germany, formed in 2014 and since then has played many shows in mainly northern Germany.

The DISSMELAND songs cut their swath through all their favorite genres: noise, punk, crossover, stoner, rap, rock. The lyrics are 80% German, 10% English and 10% mumbled.

The first EP was recorded in May 2018 at HOME Studio Hamburg and will be released in 2019. Live there is a full board on the ears, a lot of dynamics, heart and sweat. Gladly the instruments are also changed during the concert and the guitar tuning.

Even though DISSMELAND is very critical of Facebook and the like, the necessary web presence has been added. Have a look here:

The Hidden Spirit was founded in the fall of 2018. After their first successful concerts, they released their debut EP in February 2020, which received positive reviews in magazines like Rock Hard and Def Forever. Comparisons by reviewers to Black Sabbath, Black Label Society and Fu Manchu describe the band’s style well: driving drums, muddy riffs, earthy basslines and powerful vocals with a flair for dynamics, but also a kick on the brakes sometimes with tasteful clean guitar parts are the order of the day.
