ATROCITY are one of the most successful Metal bands from Germany. In addition, the group is one of the most experimental and diverse music acts in the history of Metal, because they have the courage to explore new musical horizons. At the same time, ATROCITY stands for top notch productions. With their previous studio effort, the longplayer “Werk 80 II”, the band entered the top 20 of the German Media Control Charts. Some time ago, the “Metal chameleon” decided to work together with vocalist Yasmin – no one else than the sister of frontman and producer Alexander Krull – on a new project. This comes as no surprise, as the band already worked with the A-list vocalist in the early Nineties. The result of this cooperation was the EP “Calling the Rain”, which turned out as a milestone of the scene. The songs were a perfect-blend of ethnic elements, world music and Metal. Up to this point, this was an unimaginable mix of atmospheric yet gripping musical diversity.
The latest ATROCITY FEAT. YASMIN album “After the Storm” does not simply repeat the collaboration, but elevates the songwriting and production to a new level. All instruments were performed live and a huge amount of percussions allows for a tapestry of complementary rhythms. The driving and tribal-like beats are the foundation of ATROCITY’s music and allows for an intense and fascinating atmosphere. The string instruments and vocals harmonize perfectly with the mood of the individual songs and with the whole music respectively. Besides wonderful atmospheric songs such as the title track “After the Storm” or the emotional “Silvan Spirit”, true rock songs like “Black Mountain” or the anthem “Transilvania” show a completely new side to the Metal band. With the mystical songs “A new Arrival” and “As the Sun kissed the Sky” or the music turned Celtic legend “The Otherworld” ATROCITY, together with the exotic vocals of Yasmin, takes the audience into a mythological world. The band featuring the singing siblings Alex and Yasmin switches to high gear with the catchy song “Call of Yesteryear”!
No listener will remain untouched. The music of ATROCITY FEAT. YASMIN can only be described with one word: unique!
