Hannes Grossmann Premieres New Song "Oceanborn"

We've got a surprise track premiere for you metal fanatics today that will absolutely blow some minds!

German musical virtuoso Hannes Grossmann (Alkaloid, Blotted Science, Hate Eternal, ex-Obscura, ex-Necrophagist) is wrapping up an IndieGogo campaign at 3:00 AM EST tomorrow (August 9th) for his impending solo album "The Crypts of Sleep." Get in on the action in these last waning hours of the campaign right here.

As the crowd funding campaign draws to a close, Grossmann has teamed up with us to premiere another sneak peak of the upcoming album. Check out our exclusive early stream of "Oceanborn" below, which is the fifth track on "The Crypts Of Sleep." Prepare to be lulled in by some melodic acoustic strumming before getting kicked straight in the teeth by the most technical of death metal!

After successfully crowdsourcing the funds to independently release his debut album "The Radial Covenant" in 2014 (still streaming in full here), Grossmann decided to follow the same approach for much anticipated follow-up, "The Crypts of Sleep."

The new album was entirely written, arranged, self-recorded and self-produced by Grossmann between September 2015 and June 2016 at his own Mordor Sounds studio in Veitsbronn, Germany.

Grossmann plays drums on the entire album and enlisted the the help of numerous all-stars in the extreme music scene including Danny Tunker (Alkaloid, Abhorrent, ex-Aborted) - rhythm and lead guitars, Linus Klausenitzer (Obscura, Alkaloid, Noneuclid) - bass, Morean (Alkaloid, Dark Fortress, Noneuclid) - vocals, Christian Muenzner (Spawn of Possession, ex-Obscura, ex-Necrophagist) - lead guitars, Fountainhead (ex-Obscura, Despotic) - lead guitars, Per Nilsson (Scar Symmetry) - lead guitars, and Erik Rutan (ex-Morbid Angel, Hate Eternal) - lead guitars.
