Crematory Announces New Album Release

For 25 years now, Germany's gothic metal act Crematory have enthralled countless fans at home and abroad. Since forming in 1991, the band has released twelve studio albums, in addition to a number of live recordings, singles, EPs and compilations.

Crematory's upcoming thirteenth studio album "Monument" is now scheduled for global release via Steamhammer/SPV on April 15th, 2016 as a digi/2LP/download. The following press release was issued about this upcoming album:

"Infinitely more strongly than on its predecessor 'Antiserum' (2014), the twelve tracks on 'Monument' are based on brute guitar riffs and hard-as-nails drum grooves, replete with sinister keyboard hooks and that mix of growls and clear vocals - some in English, some in German - that is so typical of this band. The group's fans will be thoroughly delighted with Monument and its dynamic sound.

"When the work on 'Monument' commenced in spring 2015, a personnel issue had to be settled in the Crematory camp: Matthias Hechler, guitarist, clear voice and a style-defining member for 17 years, had left the band for private reasons. His departure went off without animosity or internal quarrels was confirmed by Matthias in an interview on the Live At Wacken 2014 DVD. Following his decision, Crematory made a virtue out of necessity, enlisting two successors: Tosse Basler (Scapegoat, Avalanche) joined the fold as rhythm guitarist and clear vocalist, and Rolf Munkes is Crematory's new lead guitarist."

"Tosse and Rolf have brought a breath of fresh air to the band, they've really inspired us with their powerful style and phat guitar sounds," rejoices drummer Markus Jüllich, who composed the songs again with producer Kristian "Kohl" Bonifer before going on to produce them together at the Kohlekeller Studio.

Crematory Checks In From The Studio

Crematory just entered the Kohlekeller Studios to record new studio album "Monument," which will be released through Steamhammer/SPV just in time for the band's 25th anniversary in spring of 2016. The label comments:

"On the musical side the album is going to be harder and darker and a return to the band's roots! With their new effort 'Monument,' Crematory are taking four steps back, but at the same time, one step forward. They are returning to their good old gothic metal days in combination with the new established twin-guitar attack and their well-known talent for composing catchy tunes with keyboards and samples.

"On the lyrical hand, there will be the usual mix of German and English lyrics. Singer Felix went above and beyond on his vocal duties and the clean vocals will be handled by one of the new guitarists. This vocal co-operation will create a stir; as such a mix has never been heard in the scene or on any Crematory album!" More...

Crematory Recruits Two New Guitarists

Crematory just issued the following announcement about recruiting two new guitarists and working on a new album:

"Crematory found new guitarists! On one hand they found Tosse Basler, who's in the music business for over 30 years and played in bands like Poison Asp, Forty Shades, Scapegoat, Avalanche or Evolution, who's handling the rhythm guitar and the clean vocals.

"On the other hand, Rolf Munkes, who also has over 30 years of experience in the business, joined the band as their new lead guitarist. Rolf is also operating as a producer in his Empire Studios, were he worked with such acts as Majesty, Tony Martin (Ex-Black Sabbath), Neil Murray (Ex-Whitesnake & Ex-Gary Moore), Don Airey (Deep Purple) or Doogie White (Michael Schenker).

"More guitars means more metal! Creamtory will hit the Kohlekeller Studio again, in September, to record a new album with producer Kristian Bonifer. And this album will cause some great surprises in spring 2016, which also marks the band's 25th anniversary! Crematory will play several festivals in the Summer then!" More...

Crematory Reveals New Album Details

Crematory will release new album "Antiserum" on March 4th, 2014 via Steamhammer / SPV. Drummer Markus Jüllich explains:

"Our fans can look forward to Antiserum, on which we have gone one step further than we did on our comeback album Revolution in terms of electronic influences. In collaboration with Elmar Schmidt of Hamburg EBM act Centhron, we have come up with a haunting mix of metal riffs and EBM keyboards. That's why I'd refer to Antiserum's musical direction as 'EBM-Metal.'

"In the beginning it was more difficult than we'd thought. The sounds and samples that Elmar brought us had no really song structures, that's why we didn't have a central theme to start off with. It took us two or three songs to get in to the groove, but from that point on it was an extremely exciting process to work on the new material."

The Crematory drummer is referring to tracks such as "Virus" with its pulsating EBM flair, "Inside Your Eyes," and the first single release "Shadowmaker.

Markus also states: "Even before the whole record was finalized we knew that 'Shadowmaker' had absolute hit potential. We never had a moment's doubt that we had come up with the new Crematory anthem. More...
