Based in Munich and Berlin, HERUIN come to prove that there’s more to expect from these cities than techno clubs and German folklore. HERUIN play heavy, groovy music shaped by influences of cloud-rap and hip-hop. A combination, that would be best described as Nu-Metalcore.

With more than a decade of experience in heavy music, producing & touring, the four members Aaron, Darius, Ignaz and Jonas bring along everything it needs to deliver their music to the masses. Their self-produced debut EP »ADDICT« was released on Famined Records (Victory Records) in April 2018 and quickly caught the attention of national and international press leading to shows supporting notable bands such as ALL THAT REMAINS, CRYSTAL LAKE & many more.

Following two European tours and multiple club shows across Germany, the band was ready to open a new chapter in late 2020. In cooperation with new-age cyber collective TRASH, HERUIN released their most successful single to date: »LEAVE ME«. It instantly built on their first successes and even surpassed them by introducing their unique sound to a broader and and more diverse audience.

With 2022 shaping up to be the year to bring back live music, HERUIN are ready return to the stages and present new music, that they have been working on for the past year.

Aaron Rusch

Aaron is drummer and main songwriter for HERUIN. He also takes care of recording, mixing and mastering all the tracks in his own studio. Being a producer, he’s responsible for dozens of national and international releases making him the mastermind of the band.

Jonas Herr

Together with Ignaz, Jonas was the latest addition to the band. While being an account manager at work he’s also serving as manager for the band. He’s known for throwing his bass into Aarons’ drumkit and first met Darius when playing a show in his ISO-container. True story.

Darius Asgarian

When he's not streaming games live on Twitch, Darius is the singer and lyricist for HERUIN. He’s one of only two founding members that are still with the band. Funny enough he knew all the band through years of playing shows with his previous projects.

Ignaz Engelmann

Although originating from Russia, Ignaz will be drunk after even smelling vodka. Sober or not, he’s taking care of all things visual in HERUIN – from artworks to merch designs. And when he’s not designing, he’s either in his studio producing everything from trap to wave or working on his sick stage moves.

EP 'ADDICT' was published on May 11th, 2018 by Famined Records

Süddeutsche Zeitung:
„Die knarrenden siebensaitigen Gitarren sind tiefer gestimmt denn je, Soli finden sich so gut wie keine, was charakteristisch für den rhythmusorientierten Nu-Metal ist. Darius' kraftvolle Stimme hält die Songs jedoch im typischen Metalcore-Stil, mit der Energie und den explosiven Momenten früher Songs von Emil Bulls oder aktuellen Bands wie Wage War.“ reference

New Transcendence:
„Riveting, ruthless and catchy, Heruin’s breakout effort combines hard-hitting breakdowns and contemporary aggression with a “classic” nu-metallic influence and sharply-honed edge, cutting right to the heart of the listener’s head. Balancing fun and fury, Addict is a record that sees a young band breaking into the heavy music scene with both fists swinging, taking no prisoners.“ reference

„Heruin wissen um die Attraktivität von eingängigen Mustern Bescheid und mischen in Stücken wie „Haunted“ oder „Love“ die Brutalität von harten Blasts und heftigen Riffs mit melodischem Gesang, bewussten Emotionen und Catchyness..“ reference
