2019 has just begun and there’s a new update to come from German-speaking hard rock music in the form of Stahlmann.
Stahlmann, known for spectacular stage presence, are also famous for constantly developing their uncompromising sound. More than ever they do that now – thus their latest album Kinder Der Sehnsucht breaks some traditional genre borders.
Stoic guitars, chilling electro-parts, and brutal lyrics mix perfectly with light punk rock and Deutschrock elements added to the hard German music scene all make up this quality record.
Ever since being established, Stahlmann brought the Neue Deutsche Härte 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 sensation and drowning in sentimentality. Accurate as a painter, frontman and 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
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 of 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 honestly with people is something that should be celebrated and honored much more often. Real friendship is worth that.“
For many years, Stahlmann have made their way to the top – step by step. Their debut Stahlmann (2010) made a big impression on the German music market and the successor Quecksilber(2012) entered the Top 40 of the German album charts.
The band is releasing the first two singles, “Kinder Der Sehnsucht“ and “Die Besten“ on February 8 and 22, check out the video for “Kinder” below.
In their eleventh year, Stahlmann raise the bar once again.
Kinder Der Sehnsucht will be available from March 22, 2019, via AFM Records.
