Over Your Threshold Posts Album Teaser

Germany's Over Your Threshold has posted an album trailer featuring excerpts of all songs taken off new album "Facticity." Watch the video below and also make sure to check out the band's Metal Blade landing page right here. Over Your Threshold comments on the album and new single:

"The writing and recording process of 'Facticity' has extended over a longer period. Thus, each song imparts different elements and impressions caused by our different musical influences in the course of time. 'Contextual Fluctuating' is the last track we wrote for 'Facticity.' It's pretty complex on the guitars and shows the progress of our songwriting compared to the older songs of the album. The concept of the song is that both guitars permanently play quite different riffs but all in all it fits together. That's a stylistic element we will use more and more for future songs. This change in the songwriting is reflected in the lyrics as well. All things are fluctuating over time, nothing remains quiescent - everything changes with a new context."

Head over to Metal Hammer right here to stream "Contextual Fluctuating," the second single taken off "Facticity." More...

Over Your Threshold Signs With Metal Blade

Metal Blade Records is thrilled to announce the signing of German death metal act Over Your Threshold. The label issued the following statement:

"Arising from Munich, Germany Over Your Threshold began playing live in 2007. After numerous gigs with renowned death metal acts like Obscura, Deadborn and Hokum, the band made a name for itself in the local metal scene. Over Your Threshold is known for tight playing and an expressive performance at live-shows.

"The first record, Progress In Disbelief (EP), was self-released in 2008. Over the years the band's concept of Death Metal gained ground and its actual sound is enriched with a great diversity of musical elements. Influenced by different Death Metal bands (reaching from the 80's up to now) Over Your Threshold's music combines progressive death metal with a bit of thrash and some fusion components.

"In 2011, Over Your Threshold entered the Woodshed Studio in Landshut, Germany to record their first full-length album, entitled Facticity. The sound of Facticity is not only more blasting but also more technical, interspersed with energetic Death Metal riffing as well as melodic acoustic guitars. It's enriched by brute-force blast beats, Thrash Metal, jazzy harmonics and the distinct tones of smooth, fretless bass. Furthermore, the band recruited guest musicians Steffen Kummerer (Obscura, Thulcandra) and Jonas Fischer (Hokum, Ex-Obscura) to jazz up their debut album. Facticity was mixed and mastered by V. Santura (Triptykon, Dark Fortress)." More...
