Crematory Announces New Album “Monument”

For 25 years now, Germany’s gothic metal act Crematory have enthralled countless fans at home and abroad. Since forming in 1991, the band has released twelve studio albums, in addition to a number of live recordings, singles, EPs and compilations.

Crematory’s upcoming thirteenth studio album “Monument” is now scheduled for global release via Steamhammer/SPV on April 15th, 2016 as a digi/2LP/download. The following press release was issued about this upcoming album:

“Infinitely more strongly than on its predecessor ‘Antiserum’ (2014), the twelve tracks on ‘Monument’ are based on brute guitar riffs and hard-as-nails drum grooves, replete with sinister keyboard hooks and that mix of growls and clear vocals – some in English, some in German – that is so typical of this band. The group’s fans will be thoroughly delighted with Monument and its dynamic sound.

“When the work on ‘Monument’ commenced in spring 2015, a personnel issue had to be settled in the Crematory camp: Matthias Hechler, guitarist, clear voice and a style-defining member for 17 years, had left the band for private reasons. His departure went off without animosity or internal quarrels was confirmed by Matthias in an interview on the Live At Wacken 2014 DVD. Following his decision, Crematory made a virtue out of necessity, enlisting two successors: Tosse Basler (Scapegoat, Avalanche) joined the fold as rhythm guitarist and clear vocalist, and Rolf Munkes is Crematory’s new lead guitarist.”

“Tosse and Rolf have brought a breath of fresh air to the band, they’ve really inspired us with their powerful style and phat guitar sounds,” rejoices drummer Markus Jüllich, who composed the songs again with producer Kristian “Kohl” Bonifer before going on to produce them together at the Kohlekeller Studio.
