Claustrophobia was created in 2002 by Thomas and Vincent. At that time the
idea was just to start a band but nobody had any musical experience what
so ever. After a year or so, Joost offered to play guitar since he had
experience in playing acoustic. A new area began. Joost bought
Vincent's guitar and began playing metal. The drummer at the time, Erik,
started taking drum lessons. Due to lack of interest he quit lessons and
playing and at that point there was no drummer for the band. After 2 years
of practice without a drummer or bass player, Vincent started playing the
bass guitar and a new drummer by the name of Szandor was found. The
band improved a lot and started to work on material for a first album.
This demo album came out in 2006, was called DechristIanisation and was
a great success. Then the guys stopped Claustrophobia and they all went on
to become teachers of fine and lost arts.
