2019 hast just begun and there’s an new update to come for hard German-speaking Rock Music.
The German band STAHLMANN, known for spectacular stage presence ever since, are also famous for constantly developing their uncompromising sound. More than ever they do that now – thus their newest album “Kinder Der Sehnsucht” breaks open some traditional genre borders.
Stoic guitars, chilling electro-parts and brute lyrics mix perfectly with light Punkrock and Deutschrock elements. “Kinder Der Sehnsucht” is made of musical and textual depth and stands for a rousing atmosphere of departure.
All that the hard German music scene is representing today – all of this is part of this record.
Ever since established, STAHLMANN brought the NDH genre to perfection, and again they present themselves in a completely new way and set new standards.
Hands-on, confident and ruthless – STAHLMANN draw a picture of a society that strives for fulfillment, is longing for dreams, is celebrating friendship, seeking for sensation and drowning in sentimentality.
Accurate as a painter frontman and STAHLMANN-mastermind Mart Soer is confronting a modern society with their own portrait. “Our society is more socially connected and flooded with information and incidents more than ever before“, singer Mart Soer says, “and at the same time it is lonelier, more meaningless and more unoriented than ever.“
On the other hand, STAHLMANN can also tell positive aspects of our society. The song “Die Besten” is a hymn to friendship. “Friendship is the most precious thing that exists“, Mart states. “Being able to rely on someone and talking honest with people is something that should be celebrated and honored much more often. Real friendship is worth that.“
Since many years, STAHLMANN makes their way to the top – step by step. Already their debut “Stahlmann” in 2010 made a big impression on the German music market. The successor “Quecksilber” has entered the Top 40 of German album charts. Since then the band firmly booked their entry to Media-Control- and Club charts.
When releasing the first two singles “Kinder Der Sehnsucht” and “Die Besten” on February 8th and 22nd as precursors of the new album, this is more than just a statement.
In their eleventh year STAHLMANN raise the bar in all respects again.
