Danny Tunker (Aborted, Ex-God Dethroned) - Guitars

Hannes Grossmann (Blotted Science, Ex-Obscura, Ex-Necrophagist) - Drums

Drummer Hannes Grossmann (Blotted Science, Ex-Obscura, Ex-Necrophagist) speaks out:
"Even though all of us have worked with record labels for years, we're not going to work with a label this time. Labels just expect music that you can label! However, the music of Alkaloid is very diverse and sometimes radically new. We are music lovers ourselves and write music for other people who love music. And to keep it as simple as that, we'd like to connect with these people as directly as possible. Crowdfunding is the perfect instrument to do that."

Describing the band's music, singer Morean states:
"One thing that has been clear since the beginning is that there will always be more
than one element present. We define this band through the field of tension created
between opposites. All of us are active death metal musicians who nevertheless all
have a much broader view of music than blastbeats and growls. We can try to
establish from the beginning that we have many faces, and that oscillating between
(seemingly) contrary or mutually exclusive styles is a factor."
