This exclusive re-release introduces one of Germany's finest sludge/doomcore groups - a truly original name on the German metal scene.
The exclusive re-release of 'Schmerz' introduce one of Germany's finest sludge/doomcore groups and a truly original name on the German metal scene. The album was released in 1999. Produced again by Andy Classen, the LP showcased a much more centered approach towards doomcore - the music is heavier and more varied than on the debut album. Typical doom tracks (such as 'Defrost' or 'Doom') intertwine with mid-tempo hardcore bulldozers ('Aschergen', Days Of Fire', 'Release'), creating altogether a memorable sludge experience. The most unique track, however, is the surprising cover version of 'Diesmal hat er sich gewehrt' ('This time he defended') by Peter Maffay - the way this mellow tune is transformed into a raging doomcore monster is simply amazing. All in all, 'Schmerz' proved to be the best work in the band's entire discography. New digipak edition limited to 2000 copies. Digitally remastered using 24-Bit process on golden disc.
