Eisregen Issues Track-By-Track Breakdown For New Album "Todestage"

Eisregen will release the band's 10th studio album next month on October 25th, 2013 via Massacre Records.

"Todestage" was recorded at Klangschmiede Studio E with Markus Stock, and the cover was drawn by drummer Yantit himself. Vocalist M. Roth also recently took some time to talk about each song on "Todestage." Check out his track-by-track breakdown below:

01. Waldgott: "The album opener is a powerful composition. It sounds like a film score in the beginning, but steadily builds a certain atmosphere and ends in an anti-climax after about 6 minutes running time. This was actually the main reason why the song was composed this way. Lyrically it's a dark story about a god-like creature living in the woods, that has eradicated whole villages."

02. Todestag: "A couple of monogamous relationships can only be 'saved' with hammer strokes so that everything's worth living for again (well, for one half of the couple at least, the other one probably wouldn't like to talk about it anymore...)."

03. DSDSL (Deutschland Sucht Die Superleiche): A musical homage to Pungent Stench (Mister Schirenc himself also contributed a few leads here), lyrically my personal statement about all the reality TV bullshit you're confronted with each day. Back in the days, the sadistic voyeur had to watch "Faces Of Death" to be satisfied, nowadays you just have to turn on the evening program on TV."

04. Höllenfahrt: "A song like dynamite. It's probably the fastest song ever featured on one of our albums."

05. Lang Lebe Die Nadel: "A solemn song with a beautiful melody. The lyrics are about drug abuse and its consequences."

06. Flötenmongo: "It all started with a picture I saw online, that haunted me for quite a while. On this picture was a man born with Down syndrome who passionately played the flute. I wrote the song Flötenmongo to get this picture out of my head and to be able to rest easy again."

07. Familienbande: "A fast old-school song with lovely, abnormal breathing dysfunctions by yours truly in the beginning."

08. Oh Wie Sie Schrie: "A ballad about an unusual parenthood. The father wants a son. Unfortunately the mother doesn't have a say in this matter and is chained up in the basement for 9 months. Whatever next!"

09. Mitternacht: "This song practically accompanies the cover artwork. A catchy song with a lot of potential for upcoming live shows."

10. Oststern Am Narbenhimmel: "A very atmospheric and slow song. The lyrics are petty apocalyptic too. Along with the music, it'll send shivers down your spine."

11. Tot / Untot: "An extraordinary story about the undead, musically diversified and refined with leads by Martin Schirenc."

12. Seele Mein: "A magazine described this song as a 'power ballad including a heroic guitar solo.' They have a point, if you ask me. The end of the song features something very ill-natured that could turn on your mental cinema."
