THE SORROW – THE SORROW – ORDER NOW!!

The Sorrow - The Sorrow

Anything that doesn’t sound dramatic won’t get on this album. With this clear vision in mind, THE SORROW, together with producer Toni Meloni (Caliban, Die Toten Hosen), ensconced themselves at the Principal Studios near Münster, Germany, in May 2010. Here, in these familiar and secluded surroundings, Austria’s most successful metal act had already recorded their first two albums, also under Meloni’s direction. In other words, ideal conditions.

The moment of truth has arrived for Andi, Dominik, Mätze and Tobi with their third, self-titled offering. Following the amazing success of “Blessings from a Blackened Sky”, a fantastic debut by this act from Austria’s Vorarlberg region who were still completely unknown back then, and “Origin of the Storm”, on which they perfected their sound, blending the essence of their creative work of that time, they are really getting down to business. THE SORROW have moved on to new musical pastures.

The band have learned from the creative process of “Origin of the Storm”, which was marked by tight schedules and high expectations. They have become totally independent in artistic terms, having embarked on a search to find themselves. The result? Their most impressive recording to date. THE SORROW – the album – is unusual, courageous and oozes a musical atmosphere from the first to the last note which is unequalled in today’s metal world.

THE SORROW have redefined themselves, remaining faithful to themselves at the same time. Their classic recipes have given way to an irrepressible urge to explore new terrain. The product of their labours consists of 13 unique songs which combine everything that makes metal great. The new album by THE SORROW not only sees the band break new ground – it also takes its listeners onto musical virgin soil. Released on Artoffact and available December 7th, 2010.

 

MASSIV IN MENSCH – NIEMAND WEISS, WAS DIE ZUKUNFT BRINGT – ORDER NOW!!

LISTEN and ORDER: http://www.artoffact.com/releases.php

Niemand Weiss, Was Die Zukunft Bringt - Massiv In Mensch  

After 2008’s zany “Meanwhile, Back in the Jungle”, Massiv in Mensch pull no punches on their sixth studio album, the aptly titled “Niemand weiss, was die Zukunft bringt” (Nobody Knows What the Future Will Bring). The album opens with an intro featuring the unmistakable voice of German actor Reiner Schoene (notable as the German voice-over voice of Darth Vader, as well as roles in Star Trek: The Next Generation, Mortal Kombat: Annihilation, Babylon 5, and more). Schoene went into the recording studio especially for this release, so its a real treat for cult movie buffs. Also making an appearance is mind.in.a.box, adding a synthpop vibe and subtle harmonies to Massiv in Mensch’s killer sound. The album features a cover of the cult techno hit Die Kybernauten (recently back in the spotlight on a re-issue on German label Infacted) as well as a guest appearance from Kontrast vocalist Nebelgeist. Massiv in Mensch deliver 14 tracks of techno-inspired dance music without ever missing a beat! Released on Artoffact and available December 7th, 2010.
