STAHLSARG - Exclusive Streaming Premiere Of New Album

 

UK based black/death metallers Stahlsarg are just about to release their second full-length album entitled Mechanisms Of Misanthropy via Non Serviam Records. Terra Relicta is offering you an exclusive full album stream just moments before its official release. Our black metal reviewer Felin Frost was pretty entused about what she heard: "Stahlsarg are about to be ripping apart everything to deliver you one of the best black/death metal Halloween treats you have ever had. Since 2013, they began unleashing a blend of black and death metal, solemnizing times of abuse and survival of rebels of oppressive and vicious political prosecution. As a follow-up to their previous album, Comrades In Death, the band is now presenting us a visceral onslaught black metal." You can read the entire review over HERE.

Stahlsarg formed in 2013 in Suffolk. Discovered in their demo writing days by Hellhammer of Mayhem who approached the band for a shirt and off the back of this a London support show was secured. This then began a succession of UK and European shows playing alongside many other bands such as Endstille, Handful Of Hate, Excruciate666 and Crystal Viper to name a few. Over the years the band has played numerous festivals in the UK and Europe, including Bloodstock Festival, Inferno Metal Festival, Kings of Black Metal Festival, Grimm Gent Extreme Fest, Beermageddon Festival and many more. Throughout the years the band has attracted the attention of endorsers Randall Amplification, Jackson guitars and have even created a Stahlsarg beer which was sold in the UK.

The band internationally released their first album entitled Comrades In Death through the Danish label Mighty Music in 2015 and gained numerous excellent reviews in online and print publications in Europe and air time on online radio stations. The second opus entitled Mechanisms Of Misanthropy was recorded by Danny B Takoma (Criminal, LockUp) at HVR studios in Suffolk who also took on production duties on the band's first album. This second album will be released by the Dutch label Non Serviam Records on 31st October, it features a guest vocal from Kim Dylla (A winter Lost, Gwar, Kung Fu Dykes) and an arrangement from Brian Moss from Vicious Pink. Mechanisms Of Misanthropy brings a darker and more atmospheric sound to the band with the introduction of a typical gothic guitar sound, samples and the introduction of Destruction (bass player) playing tuba and trombone. This enhances the lyrical journey of tales in a time of oppression, survival and death, song subjects include the Norwegian resistance hero Jan Baalsrud and Sophie Scholl & the White Rose movement. From the fastest to the melancholic and from the bombastic to the magisterial atmospheres are created on this album to maximize the hard-hitting lyrical content. 

Comment from the band: "We are excited that our second album Mechanisms Of Misanthropy will be released on Halloween through Non Serviam Records. On this album we have used more atmosphere to link the songs together to make a more immersive experience. The lyrics on this second album focus heavily on survival and individuals. We hear about how Jan Baalsrud, a Norwegian resistance fighter, had to cut gangrene infected flesh from his body. How a Jewish woman ended up working for the Gestapo to assist with capturing other Jewish people in hiding. How Sophie Scholl and the White Rose Movement fought to resist valiantly in a time of oppression. The album easily sits alongside it's contemporaries however it has it's own sound. So if you like black and death metal with atmosphere than surrender your ears to Mechanisms Of Misanthropy."

Felin Frost added: "This is a black metal album where all the instruments have found a particular equilibrium proportioning definition to each song generated. Magnificient technical performance with loads of captivating melodies and never forgetting the dynamic and powerful darkness. Check out Stahlsarg, they show a good and fierce potential, highlighting their capability to make all instruments work together in harmony and balance." Listen to the album in the player below!
