Andreas Lindner


My name is Andreas Lindner, born in October 1978 in Hamburg, Germany. Music that inspires me comes from different genres, times and themes but mainly it’s Melodic Black, Death and Doom Metal.

I started writing songs in the early ’90s, first as a singer, later as well as a guitarist, with my first band Tormentum Mortui, later better known as Querimonia. After several demo’s (Zug der Sturmvögel, Eiswinde) we recorded our first CD named Void of Malice, recorded in 1997 and produced by Source of Deluge label.

After another EP including the song Sailing Away and several personal changes, the band was renamed to P.A.W.N. (The Projection of Ancient Wisdom and Narration). The band wrote and recorded but never produced a thirteen track concept-album dealing with Tolkien’s Gondolin, part of The Silmarillion, including their number one hit Northern Fairytales. On the album every character got his own theme, it was a great work, unfortunately never published, except some live performances those days.

After leaving P.A.W.N., that actually still exists making Prog Metal, I played bass guitar in the old school Deathmetal band ZQ (Zerquetscher). Further I played guitar in in the Band Rodeo666 which was a Melodic Deathmetal project with former members of the band Cryptic Garden. After I moved to The Netherlands in 2006 I started a project named Freund Hain performing Old School Deathmetal together with some of my students.

Since January 2018 I am member of NAFEARYA, playing lead- and rhythm guitar and helpful with growling backing vocals. The music of Nafearya is energetic and due to that it is Melodic Black Death Thrash Metal – different to all of I have ever heard before. It’s a completely new experience to listen to, to me as to our crowds. Of course over the years all the members and friends of Nafearya have become very good friends of mine.

I hoop to see and meet you all soon on one of our next shows. Let’s share a great time together!  \m/  \m/
