German punk metal band KÄRBHOLZ has been making its brand of full-throttle rock n’ roll for more than 18 years, and has gained a huge following in their native Germany. They have played at the Wacken festival in front of 80,000 people, they have had multiple albums in the Top 10 on the German music charts, and they have been hosting their very own festival called Heimspiel for more than 15 years.
In this interview with guitarist Adrian Kühn and drummer Henning Münch, we talk about the band’s writing process, whether they will record any songs in the English language, and if the band is ready to conquer America. We even find out about some of Adrian and Henning’s great tattoos!
With their brand new album Kapitel 11: Barrikaden coming out on March 24, 2023 on Metalville Records, fans around the globe are sure to take notice of this powerful band.

Hello everyone! My name is Scott Itter, but some know me as Dr. Music. I am a music journalist and photographer out of the Chicagoland area, and I have been in practice for over 20 years. I grew up in the 70’s with two big brothers that showed me all kinds of rock and roll. As I grew older I ventured out into different genres like jazz, funk, folk, and whatever else I could wrap my ears around. As I read every liner note and every Circus and Hit Parader like they were the Old and New Testament, I came to realize that I just love sound and appreciate all the people that create it.
I later became a stay-at-home dad and started honing my writing and photography skills to keep my mind from turning into mashed peas. My kids are now adults, my mind is only slightly mushy, and I am thrilled to have the honor of presenting my work to you!
