Der Weg Einer Freiheit Posts New Song “Skepsis Part II”

Der Weg Einer Freiheit is now premiering the first sinister track taken from upcoming fourth studio album “Finisterre.” The song, “Skepsis Part II,” can be heard below. Frontman Nikita Kamprad comments on behalf of the band:

“We are extremely stoked to finally be able to present the first new track taken from our upcoming album ‘Finisterre’. In comparison to the quite complex and progressive instrumental ‘Skepsis Part I’, the now premiered ‘Skepsis Part II’ is a more straight forward composition, in which epic melodies are aggressively building up until the doomy grand finale.

“Ultimately, we consider both parts of ‘Skepsis’ to be connected and forming one extensive musical piece. This lyric video also provides an impression and closer look at the extensive album artwork, which was created by our friend Max Löffler once again. Enjoy!”

1. Aufbruch
2. Ein letzter Tanz
3. Skepsis Part I
4. Skepsis Part II
5. Finisterre

Meek Is Murder Posts “Black Lung” Recording Video

Meek Is Murder just revealed a first taste of upcoming fourth album, “Was,” with opening track “Black Lung” now streaming in the form of a video shot during the recording of the album at GodCity Studio with producer Kurt Ballou (Converge, Nails).

Recorded and mixed by Ballou and mastered by Alan Douches (The Dillinger Escape Plan, Tombs), “Was” is the most powerful distillation of the Meek Is Murder sound yet recorded.

Frontman Mike Keller describes the concept behind the album: “Typical humans, we think about the past a lot. We romanticize it to reconcile a disappointing present. We re-write history so it reads the way we wish it went. We black it out when it’s just too much. And worst of all, we forget. It’s a struggle to appreciate the good things or recognize the negative ones at the time they occur.”

New album “Was” is set for a July 15th release. Meek Is Murder also heads to Europe this week for a full tour, ending with a slot on the Temples Fest.
