Atrocity - New Album Details

The brand new album of Atrocity - featuring Yasmin Krull - will be called After the Storm, and it will be released in September.

According to a press release, "this is, without doubt, a very special album based on a cooperation between the band and guest female singer, Yasmin. Admirers of the legendary and just re-released Calling the Rain EP won't have to wait any longer. Atrocity is surely the only metal band which attracts fans from the metal scene as well as from ethno, folk and world-music genres.

Alex Krull states: "Fans and musicians of the band have been waiting much too long for the continuation of Calling the Rain. Now time has finally come and we just can't wait to let our fans hear and enjoy the new songs. We are incredibly happy with the result. The songs contain great rhythms, the music is sounding very special and organic, moreover, the energetic vocals together with the mythological based lyrics convey a magic atmosphere. Well, once more it's time to take blinkers off! Just listen, and it will take you away!"

The latest Atrocity feat. Yasmin album After the Storm does not simply repeat the collaboration(Calling the Rain), but elevates the songwriting and production to a new level. All instruments were performed live and a huge amount of percussions allows for a tapestry of complementary rhythms. The driving and tribal-like beats are the foundation of Atrocity's music and allows for an intense and fascinating atmosphere. The string instruments and vocals harmonize perfectly with the mood of the individual songs and with the whole music respectively. Besides wonderful atmospheric songs such as the title track "After the Storm" or the emotional "Silvan Spirit", true rock songs like "Black Mountain" or the anthem "Transilvania" show a completely new side to a Metal band. With the mystical songs "A new Arrival" and "As the Sun Kissed the Sky" or the music turned Celtic legend "The Otherworld" Atrocity, together with the exotic vocals of Yasmin, takes the audience into a mythological world. The band featuring the singing siblings Alex and Yasmin switches to high gear with the catchy song "Call of Yesteryear"! No listener will remain untouched. The music of Atrocity feat. Yasmin can only be described with one word: unique!"

The album was produced by Alexander Krull at Mastersound Studio and Artwork by Stefan Heilemann. And will be released on the following dates:

Atrocity - New Album Featuring Frontman Alex Krull's Sister In The Works

Official press release

On November 13th the Beauty & The Beast tour starts! Atrocity will play special Werk 80 shows on that great festival tour!

While the band is preparing for the European run there is some great news to be announced: Atrocity are recording a new record. It will be a project album featuring frontman Alex Krull's sister Yasmin, and it will be out next year.

The collaboration with Yasmin started previously on Atrocity's legendary Blut album (1994) where Alex's sister was doing guest vocals. In 1995 the mystical and very special Atrocity featuring Yasmin Calling The Rain mini album was released, and became a success. Calling The Rain contained mainly acoustic songs which was a completly new aspect of making music for a death metal band in that time. As no other band was playing that kind of music, it was simply called Ethno Metal.

"A funny name for creating a kind of metal nobody had a name for. As we are a metal act and playing with Yasmin songs influenced by Ethno and World music, it's ok to me, although I don't like categories," states Alex Krull.

The last Atrocity featuring Yasmin song recorded was "Desert Land" for the first Orkus Compilation in 1999. Since then fans kept on waiting for new material and asking for a new official release of Atrocity featuring Yasmin. Last year Calling The Rain was re-released on Napalm Records.

After the Top 20 album Werk 80 II was released, Atrocity announced that the new record will be totally different again and another special project album with Yasmin. Through the years Atrocity wrote new songs for the new album with Yasmin. The production is in full swing and drummer Seven Antonopoulos has completed his drum tracks. On this album Seven utilzed a great amount of different percussion instruments.

Seven Antonopoulos: ''I really had fun tracking this record. Nowadays records are so over produced and slick sounding. It was nice to get in the studio and use organic drum sounds as well as a ton of percussion instruments. For the drums I played a 5 piece PDP kit and we used a few different DW wood snares. The 8' edge Collectors series was the main one though. A couple years ago I started experimenting with different kinds of percussion. On this record I used a cajon on almost all the tunes. As well as congas, bongos, timbales and all kinds of Rhythm Tech shakers and tambourines. Again, it was so refreshing to utilize natural instruments in a recording situation. I think the fans will be taking by the whole vibe and mood of the tracks. This was my first time to work with Yasmin. She has a great voice and it was a real treat to see how she interpreted the songs. At this point I've been playing with Leaves' Eyes / Atrocity for a year. So, the studio process is pretty much second nature. All in all I'm proud of the work on the record, and I can't wait to hear the final mixes.''
