The Told first took shape in Saarlouis, Germany at the end of 2005. After months of intense songwriting the strong, rich, melodic, and driving alternative rock-style resulted in what The Told is today.
Predictably, the band didn't quite fit the mold of most others lingering around the old town. ""It's typically folk, metal or really soft, older-people music there,"" says JR. ""I don't even know of any local bands that have female singers or a real concept for breaking new ground."" Influenced by a wide-ranging collection of artists such as Led Zeppelin, Metallica, Tool, Pearl Jam, Creed, Dream Theatre, The Doors, Sabbath and many others, the band started releasing demo's and an EP of its material.
Even without the benefit of too many live performances, The Told began to establish a reputation. ""A lot of it developed by being elusive,"" Bruehl remembers. ""The second song we ever wrote was this four-minute, unbelievable song called ""Stop Crying."" And for some reason, the local people took to the song with strong acceptance. We gained this popularity around town, even though no one knew who we were or where to find us. It was because we could never afford to play too many shows.""
""All About You"" was tracked in Ensdorf with the band producing and Micheal from Deathtone Studios Engineering. The album successfully finds that intangible balance between intelligent melodic groove and driving heaviness. Typical of the record is the first single, ""Stop Crying"" a melodic guitar/ keys balance with riff-driven accents and flowing vocals.
