LISERSTILLEEpic rock music is the vessel for a desire to tell stories through dramatic composition and instrumentation. It’s a four-man group and a four man creative system. The songs differ greatly from the first to the latest album, whilst a red thread is clearly present – being the progressive shape of the compositions and the character and playing style on the instruments counting drums, bass, guitar, synths, wind instrument, piano, organs and vocals.

Mr. Dunn’s unmerciful priorities create a sparkling red thread that underlines why LISERSTILLE is Denmark’s most incomparable rock band.
