Blutpumpe loves Reggae. But he doesn’t want to start nesting in this category, so he just does his own thing. He traces the inner blues to change it into something new and positive. Weltschmerz can only be a temporary state!

Blutpumpe & The Iron Shirt carry the good old message of love and respect to the people. They want to inspire, enliven, and awaken. Their music is true — intelligent, strong in feeling, floating, and earthbound.

The Iron Shirt is not simply a backing band. Blutpumpe & The Iron Shirt write their music together, a lot of it comes into being spontaneously, and very often it cannot be said any longer where the first impulse for a song came from.

Lyrically and emotionally the songs range from primal sream to philosophic treatise, and between that a lot of things are happening. Just closely below the surface virtually nothing is definite, and sometimes open contradictions stand side by side.

To live emotions and the moment, discover and create new things on new levels as a group and together with the audience is the great vision of the band.
