The new album of Germany’s hottest death metal act! Limited digipak features two bonus tracks.
The youngest hope for Death Metal or even the emobdiment of Next Generation Death Metal: such labels were given plenty for the three-piece out of Thuringia.
In just a decade Deserted Fear grown out of Death Metal's underground in a rapid tempo. Today they vividly teach the meaning of fear to their international fellows! Not only that their last work "Dead Shores Rising" climbed into the Top 50 of Germany's album charts, they even played their distinct groove into the hearts and ears of thousands with a steady and overwhelming live presence in Europe and on countless festivals. Not to forget the impressive list of club shows: Wherever they made trouble they always came off as winners of the night.
After their formation in 2007 their first album "My Empire" evolved against all odds to Underground's favorite and put an enormous pressure on the kids they used to be. The gross of German's Death Metal-assertors felt their penetrating potential. Their role was scripted before they could even think of it. So they accepted the challenge and put their whole lifes into this project beyond nature. "We grew into this", remembers guitarist Fabian Hildebrandt the unexpected interest. After "My Empire" discipline was in demand. And the fulfilling of own expectations: "We started it all and then had to give one hundred per cent to continue it. This whole thing is like a child, nothing else", singer Manuel "Mahne" Glatter illustrates. With consequential ambitiousness and staggering stamina they put out three records in five years and rose to one of Germany's greatest Death Metal bands. And they are still a real do-it-yourself-band that even records their own albums. This "sleeves-rolled-up-mentality" got them further than they ever expected. Yes, it needed a German band to get Swedish Death Metal internationally respectable again.
Deserted Fear are and will be an exception. Best proof is "Drowned By Humanity". The fourth record lives a profound heaviness, still suspires open largeness. For the first time Deserted Fear hoist the sails off to emotions, establishing a forcing contrast to their gigantic groove grenades. Floating freedom that suits so well. This newly found variety is not only bigger than ever, it's striking and captivating. Meaty and snotty. But also sad and lonely, "but never hopeless", explains drummer Simon Mengs. Deserted Fear create spaces that makes your mind exploring itself. And that's also the lyrical content of "Drowned By Humanity": Question society. Environment, downfall and departure. "Everyone can do so many little things to make the world a better place." In a forthright storm of blasphemy Deserted Fear remind nature protection and exhort the carelessness of people. The young and wild latitude is still on fire, while their grown-up earnestness alter the course.
This time no less than the Swedish producer Henrik Udd took them by the hand. He paid his dues in world famous Studio Fredman that stands out for inventing the Swedish Death Metal sound with bands like In Flames, At The Gates, Soilwork and Arch Enemy. No wonder that Udd is also part of the Next Generation Death Metal. But there's more fresh blood that electrifies the band: The essential influence for the new skills of the band was the young son of singer Mahne. Now there's this special feeling this little wonder gave them: "unbelievable excitement and joy of living. You forget about everything if you stare into the face of a child and see it grow. That stands above all." A new life, a new ghost for Deserted Fear. One that holds the mirror up: Feeling the inner child again, when the adult world gets you down. Feeling the power and endless energy to glide into new worlds that evolve out of fascinating creativity. "Drowned By Humanity" is such a bloodcurdling refreshment!
