New album details

obsc_news_sGerman Death Metallers OBSCENITY have just finished the work on their eigth studio album “Atrophied in Anguish”. 10 relentless tracks will bludgeon you back into the early 90’s. The new album was again recorded in Soundlodge Studio, Rhauderfehn together with Jörg Uken. “Atrophied in Anguish” will be unleashed on 14th September 2012 as a digipak and as a digital download via Apostasy Records.

Commented the band: “Atrophied in Anguish is the quintessence of diverse epoches of OBSCENITY. We combined typical 90’s melodic parts and leads with modern blastparts. The new album is a mixture of “The 3rd Chapter” and “Cold Blooded Murder” with a giant sound that goes without Lego-Trigger and other technical stuff.

vb_news_sHate never sounded more beautiful before! Five years after the release of their debut “Scherben” (2007) avant-garde Black Metallers of VON BRANDEN are back! Consisting of members of NIGHTFALL, MANDRAKE and MEPHISTOPHELES this Black Metal machine creates an unbelievable emotional and dismal sound containing a dramatic and haunting atmosphere. Carried by despair, the wish of death and accusing hate, the vocals of singer Sol guide the listener into a world full of tears and melancholy. Multilayer stylistic elements contribute to an individual and typical VON BRANDEN – Sound. For fans of ALCEST, EMPEROR, DEINONYCHUS, LUNAR AURORA, and also EWIGHEIM and MY DYING BRIDE this brand-new killer album is a must-buy!

The VON BRANDEN Dynasty – emotional, haunting and refreshingly different!

“Betrachte ich das Menschenreich, muss dies der Ausweg sein. Wie eure Art vernichte ich, was unbegreiflich scheint – für die nächste Ewigkeit!” – VON BRANDEN 2012
