Arsen aka König der Monster were a dark hardcore / screamo band who recorded two EPs and one LP in 2002-2003 and then split up. They were a part of Bremen hardcore scene, which was characterised by its distinct sound. This EP definitely has a very strong black metal influence, and the sound is very gloomy, dark and powerful. I don't have any other releases by them, but I think they wouldn't be hard to find.

  2. Yes, according to the info I have, it's not really an EP, just a compilation of rehearsal recordings. Thank you for the upload!

  5. I love this band. Do anyone know similar bands? I especially like the screams and the melancholic vibe in it, so if anyone can suggest similar stuff from another band, please tell me.

  6. you should check out the apoplexy twist orchestra, battle of wolf 359, utarid - they make the same style of music.

    I definitively miss in your lists:
    - nocte obducta: one of the most important black metal bands in germany. they have left-winged views, but have no politically lyrics yet. my favourite albums are schwarzmetall, galgendämmerung
    - eisregen: anarchist dark metal (some stuff is censored in germany)
    - samsas traum: vegan dark metal (with some goth attitudes)
    - lunar aurora
