“The new album will be entitled Raise Your Fist and has been recorded and written in the US, Germany and Scandinavia. Right now we’re at mixing stages and are close to finish everything. Most important to me are the power hymns Raise Your Fist In The Air and Victory which will also be available on th forthcoming EP! Both songs have been played live on our last tour and also made last years Wacken Open Air shake! Raise Your Fist In The Air will also be available in French which is going to be very interesting.
For the die hard fans of German songs like Für Immer there are two songs in the same vein. Sensitive and quite dark: Human Rights and very emotional: Engel. There are also a lot of fast songs like Little Headbanger and various pumping ones featuring amazing guest like Gus G (OZZY OSBOURNE, FIREWIND) on Last Man Standing which fans will for sure dig live.
We also have a song that honours the late Ronnie James Dio called Hero and another highlight named It Still Hurts featuring MOTÖRHEADs Lemmy Kilmister. The cover artwork has once again been created by British artist Geoffrey Gillespie who is a close friend and compagnon since he made it into the Guiness book of records for his cover for Triumph And Agony as the biggest album cover of the world. Since then he’s done ten covers for us!“
The album, Raise Your Fist, is set to be unleashed October 19, 2012.
