We’re thrilled to bring you a premiere this afternoon for Der Weg Einer Freiheit. The band is about to release their long-awaited new full-length Stellar on March 23 through Season of Mist, and we have the track premiere for Requiem.
Injecting the best elements of notorious, second wave black metal with brooding, melancholic melodies, layered with complex guitar harmonies, Der Weg Einer Freiheit are firmly in the vanguard of Germany’s engaging black metal movement.
Impatiently waiting for Stellar, the follow up to Unstille, we’ll be anticipating Der Weg Einer Freiheit‘s Roadburn performance on Friday, April 10th at Het Patronaat in Tilburg, The Netherlands just as much.
Listen to Requiem below.

Lovingly pinched from Pitchfork: When I saw the German black metal band Ascension at Maryland Deathfest in 2013, they were among the most memorable acts, largely because it was hard to know what to make of them. After being battered with a weekend of booze and an especially pulverizing set […]

If you are a fan of stellar riffs and molasses-thick distorted guitar tone, Floor has everything you want in music. These Floridian sludge / pop pioneers get a lot of comparisons to lead singer / guitarist Steve Brooks other band, Torche — and rightfully so — with his instantly recognizable […]

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.

Lovingly pinched from Ave Noctum: With so many cookie-cutter bands around jumping into the nearest genre and ‘paying homage’ to all that has gone before, it’s sometimes difficult to get your head around exactly where a band like Sólstafir is coming from. Like all things new, it takes a bit […]

Lovingly pinched from Meat Mead Metal: The words progressive and experimental probably scare off as many listeners as they attract, because it seems more and more, people are less willing to take risks on what music they absorb. I say that because I know when I drop those descriptors in […]
