Biography

Dynamic but delicate indie acoustic rock band Achtung will surely grab your attention
Biography
Achtung comes from the German word for “attention” or “warning” and is written on signs all over the German Autoban. During his travels in German in 2002, band founder Chu Seung Yeop’s rental car broke down on the Autoban. The unheaded warnings of many “achtung” signs left a lasting image in his mind. Chu thought an acoustic guitar, 3 member band like Achtung may have a “soft” image, so Chu chose a bolder name to grab the attention of audiences.

Achtung's Music Style:
The three member band consists only of acoustic guitar, drums, and bass guitar, but they incorporate various styles into their music, based on rock and pop. From exciting funk rock, to heartbreaking ballads, Achtung enlivens the hearts of audiences with music enriched with deep emotion. Sometimes sensitive, sometimes invigorating, any who listens to this music can feel comfortable. Achtung mixes dynamic but delicate acoustic guitar, prominent but harmonizing bass guitar, aggressive and colorful drumming, and melodic and fresh vocals together with rock, funk, reggae, fusion jazz, and Latin music. They blend these various musical elements to create their unique musical style.

(drums, backup vocals)Achtung(악퉁)은독일어로리더인추승엽이독일여행중아우토반에서사고로갓길에차를세우고있던중나타난표지판의뜻이궁금해물었더니조심, 주의등의의미였다고한다. 계시처럼다가온그단어를 2002년팀을결성하면서밴드의이름으로사용하게되었고 6년이지난 2008년에 1집앨범을, 2010년에 2집앨범을발매, 2011년 1월에 3곡의 싱글 앨범 reality를발매한다.

* ‘3인조 어쿠스틱 포크락 그룹’이라불리우는그들은 포크락 그룹이란타이틀이무색하게 락, 팝, 재즈, 라틴등다양한장르를융합하여만들어낸다. 악퉁의 음악은통기타, 드럼, 베이스, 보컬만으로모든곡을편곡하여담백하고군더더기없는음악을추구한다. 일렉트릭 기타를배제한편곡으로대중에게쉽게다가가고보컬의멜로디를 강조하며음악의밸런스를중시하는것이그들음악의본질이다.

악퉁의 라이브

그들의음악을이해하려면라이브를들어야한다고한다. 그들의음악을두번찾는이들은거의라이브에서 악퉁을 접한이들이다. 어찌보면 초라한게다가통기타를든보컬과베이스드럼의 단촐한 구성으로보는이를걱정시키지만정작연주가시작되면그러한걱정은한순간에날아간다. 파워풀하다가도 격정적인감성으로호소하는추승엽의보컬, 차분히음악을뒷받침하다가도 어쿠스틱기타의 빈공간을 오가는현란한안병철의베이스, 화려한플레이로관객을압도하는임용훈의 드러밍과 합쳐져완벽한하모니를만들어낸다.

이러한그들의음악적역량은밴드 서바이벌 프로그램 2012년 KBS탑밴드2에서진가를발휘하며 8강에진출하는쾌거를올렸다. 3명이만들어내는드라마틱한구성은 5인조 풀밴드 못지않은사운드를구현해냈다. 또한그독특함은누구도따라올수없는매력이있다.

신대철은 ’정말대단한밴드가나왔다‘했고 8강전에서는피아, 로맨틱펀치등을제치고 1위를하였다.Punch in the quarterfinals.
