Tour update: new dates and changes!

New drummer wanted

A new year often brings unforeseen changes and unfortunately this time we have been hit by such changes as well. We sadly have to announce that our drummer Jakob has decided to leave Hailstone due to professional reasons. Jakob joined us in 2013 and since then has been our clockwork behind the drums. We part in good faith and wish Jakob only the best for his future path, be it professional or private! We therefore are looking for a new drummer ASAP! Are you totally into Death Metal, old enough to drive a car but young enough to take the next plan to China for a gig? Are you eager to play live, release a new album, no stranger to clicktracks and do you have a knack for songwriting? Then drop us a message under! Despite the above, we are more than happy to announce that our long-term friend Tom (see pic) from German thrashers Hollowed will be supporting us on our upcoming tour shows with Deserted Fear and we are greatly looking forward to the shows! Do come out and support the shows if the tour hits a city near you!

Announcement: Tour with Deserted Fear in 2022

Caps - Back in stock


Rest in peace, Chris


We were very shocked to hear that our former bandmate and dear friend Christian Kratzer died in a tragic accident.

We will always fondly remember the times we had together on tour, making music or just having a lot of fun.

The world has lost a great musician and a wonderful person.

Our thoughts go out to your family, to all your friends and to your bandmates from Thulcandra.

We will miss you dearly,

Bastian, Daniel, Hansi and Jakob
