Born from the early hours of the night in early December 2015 in Hamburg, Detraktor has been working hard towards harvesting the interest of the locals and beyond. Heavily inspired by past influences and often bringing elements of old school legendary bands to the music, Detraktor often sparks local curiosity and grabs the interest of the crowd with the groove and the attitude. The core lineup of the band (Henrique, Rafael and Boris) was finally completed when Jeronimo joined the ranks in a very stressful and active period, in the early 2017. After releasing “Sunday Poem”, Detraktor was on the move and after some careful drinking, the overall style of the music and the band in general started to find its way. All songs are written spontaneously and purely based on emotion and attitude. As a result, the front row at shows receives a powerful kick in the face of heavy riffing.
