Der Weg Eineir Freiheit To Bring Blackend Grandeur To Roadburn Festival 2015

Posted on Thursday, September 4th, 2014

Germany’s Der Weg Einer Freiheit offers a master class in dark, furious and epic black metal as they effortlessly mix blackened grandeur with post-rock sensibilities and classically influenced melodies to create their signature sound.

Der Weg Einer Freiheit‘s latest album, Unstille, released back in 2012, is an emotionally poignant and refreshing affair. Typically slipping from sludgy dirges into a cacophony of blast-beats, distorted guitar and guttural shrieks shot through a myriad of tremolo riffs and soaring leads that constantly weave around each other in immaculate melodic flourishes. Injecting the best elements of notorious, second wave black metal with brooding, melancholic melodies, but also complex guitar harmonies, puts Der Weg Einer Freiheit in the vanguard of Germany’s engaging black metal movement

Impatiently waiting for the follow up to Unstille , we’ll be anticipating Der Weg Einer Freiheit‘s Roadburn performance on Friday, April 10 at Het Patronaat in Tilburg, The Netherlands just as much. Der Weg Einer Freiheit are currently in the studio working on their new album, which will be released in 2015 through Season of Mist.

In related news, during July, Der Weg Einer Freiheit recorded a live video for Der Stille Fluss, taken from the band’s 2011 Agonie EP.  The video shows the current line up, and showcases the studio where Der Weg Einer Freiheit will record the follow up to Unstille.

Roadburn Festival 2015 will run for four days from Thursday, April 9 to Sunday, April 12 at the 013 venue in Tilburg, The Netherlands.

Instantly attractive, Ohio’s Electric Citizen rank amongst Roadburn‘s faves in the current upsurge of female-fronted, ’70s proto-metal revivalists thanks to Sateen, their debut album and the band’s homage to forebearers like Sir Lord Baltimore, Pentagram, and the daemonic spirit of Amon Düül.
