…once were Hardcore legends? No??! Haha then you are not alone. So lets check out, what’s behind that fact. Welcome to another edition of ‘Did you know’
Today Endymion are well established in the hardstyle scene because of their raw hardstyle releases on their own level Nightbreed Records. Nightbreed Records was founded in 2015 and plays an important role ever since. But did you know that Endymion also had already more than 15 Years of career in their background?
Their first releases and one album got published under a sublabel of Cardiac Music around the turn of the millennium. Their sound was pretty dark and really the opposite of happy.
It is widely believed that Endymion were the founders of the mighty Enzyme Records label. But Enzyme was founded by Patrick van Kerckhoven a.k.a. Ruffneck. Endymion were the figureheads together with Nosferatu and released many famous bangers.
Around 2011 they joined Neophyte records. But their time there did not last very long. Perhaps their most famous or controversial release from the Neophyte Records era was “Raging In The Dancehall”. This one already was pretty slow and sometimes played in hardstyle sets.
In 2015 they completely switched to raw hardstyle and founded Nightbreed records. For their first release they teamed up with High Voltage a.k.a. Nosferatu again. The title said it all.
This was DID YOU KNOW THAT ENDYMION
From Dark Hardcore with Industrial Influences to Mainstream Hardcore with Pop Influences and again going a step further to Raw Hardstyle – What a journey so far! Almost 25 Years – we are definitely curious about the anniversary!
