Beyond The Black – energetic, straight forward, uncompromising, symphonic metal.

Where others still lose themselves in colorful descriptions, this band has already set its next course and is heading with full force right into the “Heart Of The Hurricane”. The title of the third album is metaphorically where Beyond The Black feel they are – and 2018 is going to be the year in which this charismatic outfit based around Jennifer Haben explores what they describe as ‘the stylistic limitations of extremes: where on the one hand the screws of hardness are tightened again by several turns;  and on the other hand a previously unprecedented catchiness dominates the pieces’.

Beyond The Black continue with their unerring sense of gripping melodies, mixed up with pulverizing blast beats, rousing neck breaker riffs, epic keyboard passages, and elaborately arranged strings and choral settings. From the atmospheric gloomy heaviness (“Through The Mirror”, “My God Is Dead”), the band spans the stylistic arc of their distinctive Metal-meets-Medieval sound (“Scream For Me”, “Song For The Godless”) to the bittersweet acoustic ballad “Breeze”. Together, the huge mix of elf-like vocals and deep-set growls create  a bombastic widescreen production – from the heart into the fingers or “from the heart into the vocal chords”, as singer Jennifer says.

135159Everything was better in the old days” has always been questionable. Music-wise we have seen major developments across the genres from the eighties until today. One track that defnitely ruled the clubs in the early years was Transform’sTransformation“. Justifably considered an absolute cult hit, it seemed reasonable to see if a contemporary remix of such a classic could turn today’s dancefoors upside down just as well as original did in the past. And hear for yourselves, it can! The original with its raw, puristic and light-footed vibe, spiced up with a hypnotic acid line and topped off with its famous vocal snippet that burned itself into the minds of millions of ravers in the glorious 90s, can certainly be labeled “timeless”. Andreas Krüger aka “Der Dritte Raum” takes “Transformation” into the 21st century in the tried and tested way that we’ve always known and respected this gentleman for: hypnotic, driving and incredibly sophisticated. This remix honors the original and promises to become a hit itself!
