Totenmond (1984-1990 Wermut) is a German metal-band with its own combination of punk, black and thrash metal.


The band was founded as a Punkrock-Band named "Wermut" in 1984 by S.P. Lenz und Olaf "Pazzer". In 1986 "Attila" became the vocalist, but he left the band after one year and was replaced by "Schiff" (German: Ship). Schiff stayed with the band until 1989. Wermut played mostly in youth-clubs.

One year later the band was renamed to "Totenmond" (Moon of the Dead). In 1991 Roberto Garcia became the bassist and Olaf has since written the lyrics. During this time Totenmond still played mostly in youth-clubs. Between 1993 and 1995 they released 3 Demo-Tapes, the third is called "Die Schlacht" (The Battle). Their first full-length album "Lichtbringer" (Bringer of Light) was released in 1996 and they toured together with Atrocity, In Flames and Heavenwood through Germany.

In 1997 the EP "Väterchen Frost" (Father Frost) was released and Totenmond played their first gigs in the Wacken Open Air, Dynamo Open Air and Force-Attack-Festival. After that they toured with Spudmonsters and Crisis across Europe and with Orphanage and Within Temptation through Germany.

In 1998 the second Album "Fleischwald" (Forest of Flesh) was released. A year later there were more festival gigs (With Full Force, Force-Attack and Wacken Open Air). After the festivals they went again on European tour, this time with Bolt Thrower, Crowbar and Disbelief.

In 2000 the Third Album "Reich in Rost" (Empire in Rust) came out and Garcia left the Band. In 2001 they released "Auf dem Mond ein Feuer" (A Fire on the Moon). On this album they played some punk-style songs originally released in the 80s.

In 2002 a new bassist, "Senf" (Mustard) joined the band and in 2003 they played again in the WFF-Festival. The next 2 releases: 2004 "Unter Knochen" (Under bones), 2005 "TonbergUrtod" (Mountain of Sound/Ancient Death).

The recent album "Thronräuber" (Usurper) was released in 2008.
