Crematory Reveals "Antiserum" 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.

"We were even bolder this time than we were in 2004. We played even more with different sounds and have - in my opinion - cleverly combined real drum parts with electronic patterns. For me as the band's drummer, it will be really exciting to see how we are going to translate this in a live context. But since it works so well on Antiserum, I'm confident that it will be a really good mix live, too."

The album's track listing is as follows:

1. Apocalyptic vision
2. Until the end
3. Shadowmaker
4. If you believe
5. Inside your eyes
6. Kommt näher
7. Irony of fate
8. Virus
9. Back from the dead
10. Welcome
11. Antiserum
