The Last Cell Discusses EP Releases and More!

THE LAST CELL takes on progressive metal and fusion rock to create a style that is truly original and rather unique. Having released a couple of EP's thus far with another on the way, shows are to follow soon enough with way more underway! A member of the band goes into discussion about all of these material matters and more.

1. Please tell us about the history of your band and its members.

I always wanted to have my own thing where I can write everything. So I started The Last Cell as my solo project. 2018 I released my first EP "Nautilus". Florian Lukas, a dear friend and amazing bassist played the bass on both records and became an irreplaceable part of my live setup.

In 2019 I had the luck to meet Robin Weber, a young drummer / multi-instrumentalist that just amazed us with his playing and work attitude. From there on the live set-up was complete. The first gig was amazing, as we really have a lot of fun on stage and the fact that I can totally trust both guys. They let me do my thing and for that I am super grateful.

Last month I released my second EP called "Continental Drift" and now we are rehearsing for upcoming gigs. Exciting!

2. What’s the origin of the band’s name?

It just made sense for me.The name to me carries everything I want to convey with my music. I just love science and nature. That is also basically the main theme of it. Its the story of somehow everything from the origin of existence, the fight of survival to the point where the last cell will perish and thus concluding the end of the thing we call life. 

3. Where is the band based out of and what is your music scene like there? Are there any local bands you could recommend?

We are from Austria / Vienna but basically grew up in a different part of Austria. The scene in Vienna is really supporting to each other and there are a lot of truly enthusiastic people working on great music. Bands like : Thus I End, Call The Mothership, Their Dogs were Astronauts, Solid Sky, Crimson Mind and many more. And that’s just the metal/rock part of it. I keep finding more and more talented people in Vienna. I just love this city.

4. How would you describe your style?

I think I found my style when I stopped to think what kind of music I wanna make and just treated every idea I have as a part of it. That’s why it sometimes for example its really melodic turning into something heavy then back to something beautiful and so on. It progresses through a lot of
emotions. The tools I use are djenty, proggy, shreddy and jazzy I guess ? But don’t listen to me – I am just a fool.

5. What have you released so far and what can someone expect from your works?

Two EPs: "Nautilus" and "Continental Drift" and two Singles : "We The People" and "Myra". Expect epic melodies and harsh rhythms.

6. Do you have any new music in the works?

Yes – I am already working on EP #3!

7. How about playing shows and touring, have anything planned out?

We will play two shows at the end of June, with even more gigs to follow.

8. What plans do you have for the future as a band?

I want to get my music all around the world and I hope that I will get the chance to share the stage with a lot of musicians.

9. Where can we listen to your band and where can we buy your stuff?

You can listen to my stuff on every major streaming platform like Spotify, iTunes, Google Play Music, Tidal etc. If you want to support me you can also buy the EP’s on so I can buy myself food and continue to work on my music.

10. What is it you’d like a listener to remember the most when hearing your music for the first time?

The way the emotions of the parts change between each other.
