Mit ZWANZIG.TAUSEND VOLT, das am 28. Januar über Napalm Records erscheinen wird, veröffentlicht Berlins Streetcore-Kraftpaket TOXPACK die dritte Single "Totgelaubt, doch neugeboren", mit der sie selbstbewusst nach vorne gehen und den Moshpit noch einmal anheizen! Die legendären fünf Jungs aus der Hauptstadt sind aufgeladen und bereit, mit ZWANZIG.TAUSEND VOLT den Streetcore-Sound zu liefern, den die Fans seit über 20 Jahren lieben!

TOXPACK zu "Totgelaubt, doch neugeboren":
„Viele mussten hart kämpfen, manche haben in den letzten zwei Jahren alles verloren. Sei es durch die derzeitige Situation, durch die Flutkatastrophe oder durch andere Niederschläge, die aus dem Nichts gnadenlos trafen. Wie oft standen in unserem Freundeskreis Menschen kurz davor aufzugeben, ihre Träume und Ziele zu begraben.

Dieser Song ist für euch. Er soll Mut und Kraft geben, das alles zu überstehen. 'Die Zeit ist dein Feind, sie war es schon immer - Doch Du bleibst stark, zeigst Ihr den Mittelfinger!'"

Zwanzig Jahre Streetcore: TOXPACK knallen ZWANZIG.TAUSEND VOLT in die Welt!
  

ZWANZIG.TAUSEND VOLT ist eine Entladung. Da ist Energie und ganz viel Gefühl. Wut, auch Hass und Verzweiflung. Roh und ungefiltert. Es ist der Ton, den TOXPACK seit 20 Jahren setzen. Sie können und sie wollen vor allem nicht anders. Von der Straße für die Straße.

Schon der bockstarke Opener „ZWANZIG.TAUSEND VOLT“ knallt unwiderstehlich, er ist ein würdiger Gruß direkt aus des Teufels Küche. Es geht weiter vom Zweifel an der Existenz göttlicher Mächte („Ozean voll Scheiße“), über das selige Schwelgen in den Erinnerungen an die alten Tage („Noch einmal so wie früher“).  „Bastarde für alle Zeit“, „Totgeglaubt, doch neugeboren“, „Kopf durch die Wand“ sind klassischer TOXPACK-Stoff: Ohne Gnade gemacht für die Pogokessel und Moshpits dieser Welt. Ganz am Ende, nach dem Gewitter und dem Sturm, steht dann mit „Himmelwärts“ ein ganz besonderes Stück der Bandgeschichte. Der Anlass ist traurig, es ist ein letzter Gruß an die zu früh Gegangenen. Niemand ist unsterblich, niemand ist unverwundbar. Wer verletzbar ist, ist stark!

ZWANZIG.TAUSEND VOLT ist ein Geschenk an alle alten und neuen Fans. TOXPACK sind 20 Jahre Streetcore, Wucht, Intensität und bedingungslose Ehrlichkeit. Das spüren viele und immer mehr. Die Verbindung zwischen Band und Fans ist einzigartig - und ZWANZIG.TAUSEND VOLT ist der Energieschub für alles, was noch kommt.

Gitarrist und Texter Tommi Tox zum neuen Album:
„All die Energie, die Beharrlichkeit, das Erlebte und der stetige Wille immer alles zu geben, einfach alles was sich in den letzten 20 Jahren angesammelt hat, vereint sich unweigerlich auf diesem Album und das muss auf diese Welt geschickt werden. Ein besseres Geburtstagsgeschenk hätten wir uns wahrscheinlich selbst nicht machen können.“

Dark Metal Institution AGATHODAIMON Announce New Studio Album, The Seven

Out March 18, 2022 via Napalm Records | Pre-Order Starts NOW!

Watch the Official Video for Gripping First Single “Ain't Death Grand” HERE!

Nine years after the release of In Darkness, German dark metal frontrunners AGATHODAIMON set the stage for their long-awaited comeback – the bittersweet seventh studio album, The Seven, out March 18, 2022 via Napalm Records. AGATHODAIMON’s exceptional new strike maintains the old-school spirit of its predecessor, but can’t be pigeonholed due to its dynamic and widespread musical styles, evoking a gloomy atmosphere fueled by sharp growls, epic clear vocals and a gripping, exceptional sonic universe.

Formed in 1995 and entering the scene with their debut, Blacken the Angel, in 1998, bandleader Sathonys was temporarily forced to put AGATHODAIMON on hold in 2014 due to private circumstances. But the irrevocable fire of the band and their fans never went out, seeking a reawakening of this sonic, seething beast.

Now, the gates of darkness have opened once again with the massive first single “Ain’t Death Grand” as a mouth-watering harbinger, alongside a hard-hitting music video. The song breaks in with evil screams spit from the devil himself while evoking a hellfire of thundering drums and razor-sharp riffs to create an intense mélange fueled with heroic symphonic black metal passages.

Sathonys on the first single:
“'Ain’t Death Grand' was the first song we’ve written together after our reunion, so it rightfully became the first video clip. Especially as it acts as an excellent teaser for what’s still to come: As usual, the songs of THE SEVEN won’t be one-dimensional, there’s a wide range of styles you can expect, just like we did it in the past. BUT this one has a lot of elements in common with the other songs: Dark atmosphere, melody, aggression, intensity, groove, some old school-vibe and respect for our roots, but also the inevitable longing for new musical grounds and heartfelt music in general.”

Watch the official video for “Ain’t Death Grand” HERE:

AGATHODAIMON's massive new outburst, The Seven, reveals extreme soundscapes amid a captivating concoction of evil, provoking, cutting dark metal and heroic symphonic black metal in the style of bands like Cradle of Filth and Carach Angren, but with their unique and very own multifaceted take. Thematically, as hinted by the album’s title, the full-length is centered around the momentous and symbolically powerful number seven and the seven deadly sins - sloth, greed, lust, gluttony, pride, wrath, envy - on ten tracks total, all addressed with religious topics that contrast with human beings and its original nature.

Sathonys about the album:
“Well, we took our time in creating this album. We had to make sure we (can) work together as a band after all these years, that the chemistry is there, that it feels organic to release another album after such a long break. To cut it short, we’re really looking forward to have THE SEVEN out, as we’re very satisfied with it. More than that, we’re proud of it. Typically, you can point a finger at one or two songs that really stand out from the rest, but here, you’ll feel the effort that was put into every song and every aspect. Not only in terms of songwriting, there’s also the artistic concept and visual artwork/realization delivered by the team of Credo Quia Absurdum, or the excellent production under the supervision of our friend Kristian “Kohle” Kohlmannslehner (Powerwolf, Aborted, Benighted etc.). Usually you have to be prepared to make compromises. THE SEVEN is far from that, as it is our most ambitious album to date.”

Pre-order your copy of The Seven NOW!

Diving into this exciting construct with opener “La Haine”, the track lures the listener into the freezing, dark world of AGATHODAIMON, produced by long-time companion Kristian “Kohle” Bonifer (Aborted, Powerwolf, Hämatom amongst others), by building up a dense wall of thunderous sound, accented by a multifaceted vocal interpretation. Songs like raging “Wolf Within” and haunting “In my Dreams” roam between dense soundscapes, crushing instrumentals and intense lyricism. “Kyrie / Gloria” on the other hand stomps more towards heavy doom metal, calling for a black mass with creeping darkness and desperate screams turning into harsh black metal parts, all topped by the guest appearance of Benighted frontman Julien Truchan. Amid the tracklisting there's another special treat for fans lurking with epochal orchestration that paves the war for the remarkable performance of AGATHODAIMON’s former vocalist, Romanian Vlad Dracul, on “Mother of all Gods”. It’s not only this very first collaboration since 1999, but The Seven as a whole, that showcases that AGATHODAIMON absolutely acing the balancing act of incorporating their past into a bright and exciting future.

The Seven tracklist:
1. La Haine
2. Ain't Death Grand
3. Wolf Within
4. Ghosts of Greed
5. Mother of all Gods
6. Estrangement

Modern Metallers DAGOBA Release New Single “On The Run” + Video | Watch/Listen HERE!

New Album, By Night, out February 18, 2022 | Pre-Order NOW!

On Tour with INFECTED RAIN in Europe, Starting February 2022

Following powerful latest single “The Last Crossing”, DAGOBA’s brand new track, “On The Run”, marks a melodic moment for the French modern metal upstarts on their upcoming album, By Night, out February 18, 2022 via Napalm Records. A harmonic duet of soothing juxtaposed vocals shows DAGOBA breaking free from genre limitations once more, proving them to be on the cusp of entering the hall of fame of modern metal!

DAGOBA on the new single “On The Run”:
“I always wanted to release a track which verses only contain a piano and vocals and now it’s done! The main idea was to create a contrast between the calm of the vers and the huge chords leading to the chorus, where the voice is the main line. From the begining of the writing process, I knew that a female vocalist would join me on that track, and that is also brand new for us. On The Run is a daring track, but it will make you want to play it on repeat!”

After putting their stamp on the metal scene with their unique blend of metal and neckbreaking grooves, and relentlessly touring and sharing the stage with legendary acts like Metallica, Machine Head and In Flames, the French four-piece is gearing up to reach the next level with their most ambitious material yet!

Watch the music video for “On The Run” HERE:

DAGOBA brings modern metal to new levels!

DAGOBA deftly aces the balancing act between harsh breakdowns, dense walls of sound and grooving passages with ease. Even in its hardest passages, the album never gets too overwhelming - one smashing track is followed by the next, moving breathlessly with ease. By Night is a beast of an album showcasing how far DAGOBA can take a multitude of influences and styles and combine them effortlessly. This is a must-have for true fans of searing modern metal!

DAGOBA on the creation process of By Night:
“We live in challenging times, and that’s not only because of the strength-sapping pandemic. Sometimes the world seems to be a dark place. We know it’s an ambitious project, but we really want our fans to feel good, and contribute to their happiness. Therefore, we deliver our blend of metal music. During the weeks and months in the lockdown period we had so much time to have a focus on the album production. We could look at every detail in each track, and after all By Night has become our most accomplished album so far. We are really happy with the new record and cannot wait to share it with our fans and the world.”

Pre-Order By Night NOW:

Varying in individual territories, By Night will be available digitally, as a CD (bundled with an exclusive t-shirt), as well as black and exclusive red transparent vinyl! Order HERE:
