Find the label's announcement below:

TODESSTOSS "Hirngemeer" CD

Lead by German musician, poet and painter Martin Lang, TODESSTOSS (in German, “Deathblow”) have always been a trapdoor to weird places beyond our common, boring existences. They have walked through the 2000’s refusing musical stereotypes in favor of a surreal, lunatic and experimental dark metal language that with “Hirngemeer” - their 7th and best work to date - finds a perfect balance between the early days’ depressive black metal tendencies and the more psychotic nature of the last years’ offerings.

Spiritually not so distant from acts like Burzum, Bethlehem, Urfaust or Circle Of Ouroborus, TODESSTOSS use black metal, dark rock and electronic ambient like colors on big canvas, painting a hallucinating scenario of mental ruins, a theatrical stage where their nightmares and fears materialize to perform a tragedy of insanity and despair. It’s a Theatre of the Absurd, emphasized by anguishing screams, bizarre lyrics, and black metal riffs menacingly suspended in the air like clouds of locusts, attracted by the cold and primitive dark-wave pulse of the rhythm section.

“Hirngemeer”, a non-existing term made by the German words “Gehirn” (brain) and “Meer” (sea), is the spectacle of a mental collapse and decomposition; a barefoot walk on a carpet of shattered mirrors, each fragment reflecting distorted images of the self.

Available as a CD in jewel case housed in a cardboard slipcase. 20-page full color booklet. Visual art by Martin Lang, layout by Francesco Gemelli.

Tracklist:

1. Verwehung (28:28)
2. Narbenkäfig (34:07)
3. Strom der Augenblicke (12:19)

Total running time 74:54

TODESSTOSS is:
Martin Lang - Guitars, synth, percussion, harmonica, lyrics
Flesh Of L. - All vocals and vocal lines
Euer Gnaden - Bass and bass composition




 

Update July 2015

Finally some recent news about my projects!

- First of all the less good news, the boardgame development is on the hold because of the lack of test gamers, believe it or not, no one seems to be interested, hehe.

- Then, I decided to use the already recorded Todesstoß song for the planned Split release with Venuspuls for an upcoming double album and it will even be the title song for this gigantic opus.

- Good news: The "Hirngemeer" album, Todesstoß' 7th full-lenght will be out in September through a new partner I signed with. More news to be announced soon; the CD will come as a slipcase with 20-pages-booklet

- Further plans in the nearer future:

* Finishing the 8th album until the end of october
* Recording new titles for the Todesstoß/Venuspuls Split and a new EP
* Finishing the instrumental recordings for the double album until the end of the year, to be followed by the vocal recordings next year

- For now I gave up painting and writing short stories ( a last story will be out in the upcoming Live Eclipse zine, that shall see the light of day finally in august) and really try to concentrate on music, photography and writing song lyrics

Best regards
Martin

Martin's own boardgame in the works

I have already started to work on an own boardgame. This game will be of abstract nature, a kind of mix between Chess, Kamisado or maybe Barragoon. It's based on figures and for two players.
The game is now going through many tryouts and test games to fix the rules finally before thinking of production and distro aspects.

I need more players!: Any people interested in abstract board games in Dresden area who can imagine to participate in test games in the nearer future, get in touch!




 

TODESSTOSS / VENUSPULS 7" Split EP planned

Recordings of a planned Split release between Todesstoß and Venuspuls have begun.
Two new tracks of both projects will be presented.

Any dedicated label with an interest to release this in 2015 on seven or ten inch vinyl, don't hesitate to get in touch for a possible cooperation!
Compositions, lyrics and artwork are ready to be combined to a new expressive output.




 

New album for 2015 in preparation

With the line up of Euer Gnaden, Flesh of L. and me, Todesstoß is working on a new album, that is designated to be released in spring 2015. Its title will be "Hirngemeer" and present nearly 80 minutes of an epic, obscure surrealistic oeuvre. The songlist exists of three titles pushing boundaries of the possible and obvious. Though it will be something completely new, borrowings to "Sauglingshängwerk Aushilfsheins", "Menschenscheuche" and "Sehnsucht" may be audible.
More updates to be announced soon!

YouTube / Uploads

Everybody thinking of uploading songs of Todesstoß or Venuspuls to YouTube or the internet, don't do this anymore! You're violating my copyrights and I am going to utilise them, deleting all uploads on YouTube, that I don't want to be there: so it would be a waste of your precious time. If I want to upload music to the internet, I will do this by myself, in a suitable quality, maybe soon with an own channel.
Uncontrolled uploads don't lead only to promotion, but to slow elimination of my label, for which I fight every single day, working my ass off!
I am sure you're able to use your time more reasonable, instead of caring about things you shouldn't do.
Generally I am not against new medias and I use them, too, but I don't upload things to the web, I don't have the right to.
Thanks for understanding; hoping for your cooperation!



Words of Thanks

A very special thanks goes out to every single fan ordering the original stuff and keeping the support instead of sucking soulless and respectless downloads! You keep the flame of motivation alive that in future there will be further releases as CD, MC and Vinyl beyond the phantom world called internet. Beware and share the powers against the spirit of the age! You fucking rule!
Sooner or later, if people will keep on downloading instead of purchasing original art, Martin will be forced to stop (studio-) recordings, distributing his art and over all his complete release activity!
