PHAGOCYTE aus  Münster  spielen  abwechslungsreichen,  dynamischen  Thrash  Metal  der  alten  Schule in neuer Interpretation. 


2005  als  PROOF  gegründet,  spielte  die  Band  zahlreiche  Gigs  in  der  näheren  und weiteren  Umgebung. Nach Diversen  Besetzungswechseln  wurde aus der ursprünglichen Combo ein Quartett  und  Lütti  ( Acerbity, Pushrod, Proof ) als Gründungsmitglied übernahm zusätzlich zur Gitarre die Vocals.  

Vanessa ( Presence of Mind ) unterstützt mit Bass und Backing Vocals. Nach weiteren, unzähligen Besetzungswechseln stößt im Januar 2022 Daniel ( Draupnir ) an der Gitarre dazu. Bevor nach dem letzten 

Wechsel Drummer Andi ( Acerbity / Suiciety ) im November den zuvor überaschend ausgestiegenen Drummer Flo ( For All This Bloodshed / Up North ) ersetzt.

Phagocyte sind bereit nun die Bühnen zu entern und abzuliefern.

weirdest moment on the road :  the way to my first big concert ( Rage against the machine in arnheim, nl ). short summary: My fellow, i wanted to drive with                                                       was too stoned, so i had to drive the whole way on my own. just had my driving licence since a few weeks.....i lost my wheel                                                         rim, disturbed a toad migration, nearly had a rear,end collision and in the end i had a deer accident.

best memory on the road : when i finished the last song two fans ( ok it were former bandmembers ) came to stageand handed me out some beautiful roses. i                                                 suddenly felt like playing at the " hitparade". but it was a really lovely gesture i allways like to remember.
