Fall Of Serenity Plans Final Show

FALL OF SERENITY split up about half a year ago. Now they are back to play one last show at Chronical Moshers Open Air. This show is supposed to take place next Friday, June 12, 2009, in Reichenbach, Germany.

The band issued the following statement regarding their split:

"After 10 years we have to close the chapter FALL OF SERENITY. In the last weeks we thought, after almost splitting up in 2008, we could go on doing the next record - at least after a break from playing live. But something unexpected happened, when our singer John left the band. These circumstances, and the global warming, make it impossible to go on. So we felt that we, including John, should finally end it. We wish John good luck and thank him for everything. Also a big thanks to all our supporters and foremost to our great fans. THANK YOU!!!

"Three of us will continue with a new project, so there is a chance to see our ugly faces somewhere in the future again…. Bye, bye!!!"

Fall of Serenity's "The Crossfire" MP3 Online

German behemoth Fall of Serenity is set to bring its fourth full-length album, "The Crossfire," to American soils on May 13th. But much has changed since we last heard from the band. After 2006's "Bloodred Salvation," long-time bass player John Gahlert hooked up with the microphone, while guitarist Alex Fischer switched over to the bass and Ferdinand Rewicki joined the band on the vacant 6-string spot. All the personnel shifting made for a creatively reinvigorated Fall of Serenity. The Crossfire was produced and recorded at the well known Rape Of Harmonies Studio by Ralf Müller (Impending Doom, Maroon, Heaven Shall Burn, etc) and was mixed and mastered by legendary metal-minded Swede Dan Swanö.

Singer John Gahlert on the new tunes: "We have worked hard to have these new circumstances within the band. There's a new spirit we feel, pushing us forward into a slightly different and thrilling destination. 'The Crossfire' is our statement against musical boundaries and bigotry. Working with Dan Swanö (hail to the king!) was another new piece in the puzzle and it perfectly fits to the aura of our sound. After Leif Jensen (Dew-Scented) appeared on the last album Bloodred Salvation, we forced female metal icon Sabina Classen (Holy Moses, Temple Of The Absurd) to be part of the new record...with fantastic result, she has a great and authentic voice. We are really looking forward to the things to come."

In the lead-up to the album's completion, the members of Fall of Serenity let cameras into the studio to capture some of the insanity of recording. The result is a four-minute look into the making of The Crossfire, and a rare glimpse at one of Germany's finest.

Here is "The Crossfire" track listing:

1. Immortal Kingdom
2. Knife To Meet You
3. Recreation
4. The Crossfire
5. A Whore Called Freedom
6. Funeral Eclipse
7. Act Of Grace
8. In Case Of Death
9. Blindfolded
10. Blood Portrait

Fall of Serenity Explain Tour Cancellation

German death metallers FALL OF SERENITY have issued the following statement explaining their decision to drop off the European tour with HATE ETERNAL, SPAWN OF POSSESSION and SHADOWSLAND:

"So we are not on tour with the cool people of HATE ETERNAL, SPAWN OF POSSESSION and SHADOWSLAND anymore. We were forced to do this decision together with our label and our management, because there went a lot of things just badly wrong. To put it together, the organisation and management of this tour messed up our intended goal to do promotion for our new album 'Bloodred Salvation'. It was almost impossible. So it is a decision that is better for our band. We know that Metallysee [booking agency] is a good partner concerning tours, but in this case something doesn't fit together in the right way. Maybe because some other booking agency set up this tour.

"We feel very sorry to disappoint you guys who wanted to see FALL OF SERENITY on this tour. Take the next chance please. To make it clear, there is nothing wrong with our band.

"If you wanna see the other bands on this tour, PLEASE make sure that you travel to the right place, venue or even the right city. Get as much information as you can get about the show you want to visit. Otherwise it's possible that you will stand in front of closed doors.

"We wanna thank the guys of HATE ETERNAL, SPAWN OF POSSESSION, SHADOWSLAND, Ritchie (sound engineer), Math (busdriver), the people who came to the shows and the local promoters who did their best for sure. Unfortunately, we can't thank other people involved."

"Bloodred Salvation", which includes a guest appearances by Leif Jensen of DEW-SCENTED, was recorded and produced at the Rape Of Harmonies Studios by Ralf Müller and Patrick W. Engel (HEAVEN SHALL BURN, NARZISS, etc.) and mixed and mastered by Jacob Hansen at his Hansen Studios (MERCENARY, RAUNCHY, COMMUNIC, etc.). "Bloodred Salvation"'s artwork was created by Killustrations (DEW-SCENTED, CARNAL FORGE, AMON AMARTH).
