DARK SARAH continue the storyline of Orbs, Mörk and mystical, rabbit-headed people with their second single, “All Ears!”, of off their upcoming album, Grim, to be released on July 17, 2020 via Napalm Records.

The marching rhythm of the horror-esque intro rises to an all-encompassing theme that coalesces with Heidi’s blandishing vocals and the frightening story of Grim. The official music video (directed by Markus Nieminen) and the energetic soundscapes draw its listener deeper into DARK SARAH’s magical horror fantasy world, while the story behind “All Ears!” is perfectly visualized: The protagonist Luna casts a compelling spell over the citizens of Grim. As mighty as no one could have imagined, she rises, forming an army marching against their conjoint enemy – Mörk.

Heidi Parviainen states:
"”All Ears!” is a call to unite all the people who think there is a certain power behind tales, monsters and magic! Join the coven!
The narrative of “All Ears!” follows the storyline of the Grim album. A powerful spell on the citizens of Grim empowers the protagonist Luna to fight against the evil monster Mörk who is terrorizing the city. The listener can also get a first glimpse of our new guest Jasse Jatala as Mörk. The whole Grim story will be released as a book at the same time as our album, so that our fans can get even more immersed in the story."
Watch the video for “All Ears!” HERE:
Cinematic metal icons DARK SARAH start an astonishing new fairytale-like storyline with their fourth studio album, Grim. The beguiling new dimension, coalescing between crystal-clear vocals and propulsive hardness, draws you into the tempestuous maelstrom of their horror fantasy theme. Introducing the new protagonist, Luna, the band invites you to their mythical world of orbs, ravens, rabbit-headed people and Mörk, that’ll wrap you up in a surreal dreamscape.

The overwhelming intensity of DARK SARAH’s masterfully told cinematic metal saga sends shivers down your spine and takes possession of heart and soul, while leaving you with pure emotions. Grim flourishes with its full magnitude, unfolding its potential with every second.

Heidi Parviainen on Grim:
“Our new album called Grim is a concept album like its predecessors, but Grim will start a new story line with a modern horror fantasy theme. Musically, Grim introduces a more modern sound and a taste of what's to come in the future - with a “DARK SARAH twist", of course. We´re very happy about this album and it has been really fun to make. Also creating the new visual brand and the Grim world has been an adventure already!”

Respected standard bearers for 21st century metal, DEVILDRIVER have spent almost the last two decades pursuing a course of uncompromising artistry and nonsense-free dedication to the road. Led by the prolific Dez Fafara, the Californian crew have earned their reputation as one of the hardest working bands on the planet, while issuing a steady succession of brutal but distinctive albums along the way.

Their focus has remained laser-sharp, and never more so than on the monumental upcoming double album, Dealing With Demons. The first volume of the double album offering – entitled Dealing With Demons I – is set for release on October 9, 2020 via Napalm Records and will be available in several must-have formats.

Dealing With Demons I (the band’s first release of new, original material since 2016’s Trust No One) represents the onset of a final purging of the demons that have long haunted Dez Fafara and DEVILDRIVER’s music. From its eerie, ominous intro and the self-explanatory, explosive opener “Keep Away From Me” to the seething, poignant “Nest Of Vipers” and the chilling imagery of “Iona”, each track on Dealing With Demons I illustrates a different demon to be dealt with, or released.

In conjunction with the announcement of Dealing With Demons I, DEVILDRIVER have unleashed a searing, propelling new track, “Keep Away From Me”, alongside a new lyric video – a thought-provoking time capsule that paints a picture of positivity at its end. Watch the stimulating visual, directed by Vicente Cordero, below!

Frontman Dez Fafara states about “Keep Away From Me” and its accompanying visual:
“I’ve been social distancing since I was born. I’ve learned to try and embrace my Agoraphobia all my life. This is what the lyrics are about as we are all sheltered in place. They seem very clear. Now is not the time bands should shy away from the obvious by trying to push the narrative through their art as if everything is alright with the world and ‘it’s metal video visual as usual time’, as it is clearly NOT that time.

We as artists should speak up, inspire and change lives, or paint a picture – a time capsule if you will – by the narrative we push in uncertain times. This video is one such art piece as my band and thousands of others are forced into quarantine – cannot rehearse, take photos, or perform – to make a music video for the very people that have supported us for years. It’s trying times for the world and my outlook through this video is simply this: ‘here’s what we are going through as a family on this planet and as we embrace what is yet to come... please Stand Together’.”

Dealing With Demons I showcases the supreme form of the band – Dez, guitarists Mike Spreitzer and Neal Tiemann, drummer Austin D’Amond and bassist Diego Ibarra. This isn’t just some of the most vicious DEVILDRIVER material to date, but some of their most lethally memorable too. Co-produced by Steve Evetts and guitarist Mike Spreitzer, it’s a triumph for teamwork and tenacity.

Dez Fafara says about the band’s writing and recording process:
“I said to the guys, ‘if we just met today, what kind of music would we make? How would we stand the test of time, stand apart from others and stand above the competition? Let’s not focus on the past sound. Instead let’s kick into the future together.’”

With new milestones like Dez Fafara’s eerie verses on “Wishing” and the frontman’s first co-authored lyric (“Nest Of Vipers” was written by Dez and Neal Tiemann), Dealing With Demons I ferociously delivers the goods while kicking open several new doors for DEVILDRIVER to power through in the future. It’s a vital and violent clearing of the emotional decks, but it’s also powerful evidence that Dez and his band mates have given DEVILDRIVER a volatile, visceral kick in the ass. Demons are getting dealt with in the harshest of manners.

Dez Fafara adds:
“It’s time to lay it all out, on two records. I’m never gonna revisit these subjects again. I’ve been writing about this sort of human nature, disloyalty and dishonesty, love and loss, since the beginning of my career. I am going in a more lyrically woke direction in the future. A lot of people say my music gives them strength. But what they don’t realize is that these topics haunt me. Over the course of these last few years we fled from wildfires, my wife battled cancer and now we are going through a pandemic… so it is what it is… let’s dump it all on the table and purge. I want to go through different topics in the future, so here we are now. I’ve laid it all out on a double record for all of you to hear.”

This is just the beginning – fans should be prepared for the onslaught of what is to come with the impending second volume of the double album, which promises to go even harder. This is a two-part acceleration into the future – after witnessing Dealing With Demons I, listeners will be clamoring for the second half!

Dez adds about the upcoming remainder of the Dealing With Demons saga:
“Volume two will get into some very heavy topics as well. You’ll see the band progress even further musically as we finish this ode to the purge of all things Demonic.”

DIE KREATUR veröffentlicht Heute ihr Debüt-Album
Panoptikum via Napalm Records | HIER bestellen!


Neues Lyric Video, “Untergang”, JETZT veröffentlicht!

[Photo Credit: VDPictures]

“Du sagst "ich liebe dich” - ich hasse, was du liebst.

Ich brauch' noch viel, viel mehr, egal, was du mir gibst.

Ich bin dein Untergang.”


DIE KREATUR, das Wunschkind der Szenegrößen Dero Goi (OOMPH!) und Chris Harms (LORD OF THE LOST), veröffentlicht heute ihr lang erwartetes Debütalbum Panoptikum, und begleiten den Release mit einem offiziellen Lyric Video für die neue Single “Untergang”.

Die bisher schnellste und härteste Single der Band verkörpert die Vielfalt und Komplexität von DIE KREATUR. Die kraftvollen Stimmen von Dero Goi und Chris Harms erheben sich in “Untergang” zu einem klagenden Sturm zwischenmenschlicher Abgründe.


Das begleitende Lyric Video fängt die Essenz des Songs perfekt ein. Sieh’ selbst und tauche in die Welt von DIE KREATUR ein!


DIE KREATUR zur neuen Single:

Das Lied “Untergang” beschreibt die dritte und letzte Phase einer auseinanderbrechenden, zwischenmenschlichen Beziehung. Man kann diese drei Abschnitte, analog zum Leben, in Reife, Blüte und Verfall unterteilen. In dieser finalen Phase werden die letzten verzweifelten Versuche der jeweiligen manipulativen, kontrollsüchtigen, ausbeuterischen und missbräuchlichen Person immer offenbarer, in dem sie das zwischenmenschliche System oder die sterbende Beziehung mit aller Macht am Leben zu erhalten versucht, obwohl die Risse im Fundament schon überdeutlich erkennbar sind. Dabei ist dem jeweiligen Menschen jedes auch nur erdenkliche Mittel recht, um das Unausweichliche, den zwischenmenschlichen “Untergang” doch noch abzuwenden.”
- Dero Goi & Chris Harms



Schau dir das neue Video zur neuen Single “Untergang" HIER an!


Panoptikum ist ein weiterer Meilenstein, sowohl in der musikalischen Karriere der beiden Künstler, als auch in der Neuen Deutschen Härte/Gothic Rock-Szene. Das vielschichtige Album hüllt sich in eine unheilvolle Atmosphäre und wird den Hörer überraschen, bewegen und vor Allem zum Nachdenken bringen. Die atemberaubende Symbiose der musikalischen Identitäten von Dero Goi und Chris Harms zeigt sich in einer Explosion aus dunklen, sinnesbetörenden Songs.


In der Deluxe Box liegt exklusiv die Panoptikum 1920 CD bei. Darauf enthalten sind Aufnahmen aller Songs des Albums im Stile der 1920er Jahre, aufgenommen nur auf einem authentischen Klavier, sowie zwei Gesangsmikrophonen.


DIE KREATUR über Panoptikum:

"Panoptikum wartet mit einem düsteren Spannungsbogen auf, der den Hörer in die dunklen, verschlungenen Gassen der 1920er Jahre entführt, wo er auf Freaks und Kreaturen jeglicher Art trifft. Jedoch erwartet ihn das wahre Böse nicht in den abscheulichen Wesen, die im Panoptikum zur Schau gestellt werden, sondern hinter der biederen Fassade des normalen, angesehenen Bürgers, der sich an ihrem schaurigen Äußeren ergötzt. Panoptikum ist das schonungslose Spiegelbild einer dekadenten, selbstverliebten und satten Gesellschaft. Werden wir fähig sein, unser eigenes, grausames Antlitz zu ertragen…?“

- Dero Goi & Chris Harms
