FÄULNIS Snuff // Hiroshima
German cult-Black Metal-act FÄULNIS return with their 3rd full album. The songs are sick, cold und devastating. Expect nothing more than pure hate and misanthrophy!
Other musicians opinion on „Snuff // Hiroshima":
"This album leads you to a world full of hate, misanthropy and obnoxiousness. No good mood here, marvellous ugly and definetely the end of any optimism." (Cruor/Endstille)
"Snuff // Hiroshima an album which can be compared to a facepunch. It will make you sweep of your feet and will drill your brain. Intense lyrics perfectly combined with intense Musik...truly a loveletter to mankind!" (Matthias/Harakiri For The Sky)
Media-reactions so far:
AVE NOCTUM (UK) - 8 / 10 : "They mix everything up! An album to tackle as a whole!"
MEGA METAL (D) - 8,5 / 10 : "Ein Abgrund voller Hoffnungslosigkeit und Seelenschmerz!"
LEGACY (D) : "Einen schlüssiger Nachfolger für 'Gehirn zwischen Wahn und Sinn', welcher verschiedene Spielarten des depressiven Black Metal interessant beleuchtet!"
QUEENS OF STEEL (E) : "Delve into the dark world of FÄULNIS and enjoy sounds that will freeze your veins!"

The 29th of November is the date that has been set for the release of "Futile" the debut full-length album from EUDAIMONY, the band formed by former DARK FORTRESS frontman Matthias Jell and NAGLFAR's Marcus E. Norman (BEWITCHED, HAVAYOTH, ANCIENT WISDOM). The eight-track album, which will be released on Germany's Cold Dimensions label, includes guest appearances by Mick Moss of ANTIMATTER and Schwadorf of EMPYRIUM and THE VISION BLEAK. The vocal recordings, mixing and mastering of "Futile" were carried out by Markus Stock at the Klangschmeide Studio E and the album artwork is by Ben Borucki (Irrleuchten) from the German band SONIC REIGN.
With a lineup that includes Jell on vocals and Norman on guitars, bass, synthesizer and programming, Jörg Heemann (SECRETS OF THE MOON) on drums and Peter Honsalek (NACHTREICH) on viola, the natural assumption would be that EUDAIMONY's music fits somewhere within the Black Metal/DSBM genres. But that is too simplistic an assumption to make where EUDAIMONY is concerned, because this is a band that explores the hopelessness and futility of life, both lyrically and visually, as exemplified in Jell's lyrics and the sense of mystery in Borucki's artwork, whilst the music itself forms an atmospheric soundscape of rich melodies that range from the fragile and haunting to the powerfully dark and brooding.
