Biography

Skooma Cat was founded by Johann Faustus ans Max Haag in late 2015 for some delightful playing en passant and to pay tribute to the amazing RPG-classics by Bethesda. The first musical steps were perceived surprisingly well, wherefore a full band was formed and "The Elder Tunes" was patched together with rather primitive means.

A few shows, followed by some compliments, eventuated in a second endeavour: Even though quite different from it's predecessor, "Aim for Elysium" was appreciated - not so much the bad audio quality of "The Elder Tunes".

Not long after the release of "Aim for Elysium", the old recording was fully remixed and got real drums, now available as "The Elder Tunes (Revived).

The „Christmas on the Internet“-single of late 2018 is now beeing followed up by concept EP „Adventures: Vampires of Vvardenfell“.

Aim For Elysium



A walk's all the less stressful if you sing along to a motivating song - and might it be a walk throught the rusty scrap-wastelands of Deponia. Pompous melodies, groovy Rock and an ensemble of garbage bins, beer kegs, strainers and sawblades make this album stand out.
