The industrial metal band Berlin is releasing their eighth studio album on Friday, April 29.
Rammstein fans discovered, on Thursday evening, their new album in cinemas, in preview and in Dolby Atmos sound. An original way of shaping Berlin to reveal its new creation, released on Friday, April 29th: “Zeit” (“time” in French).
The group, which sold 35 million albums in less than 30 years, wrote this new composition largely during the pandemic, and recorded it in France. Last year, keyboardist Christian “Flick” Lorenz told German Webzine Engine: “Not being able to play live increased our creativity. We had more time to think about new things and also less distraction. The result was that we recorded an album that we hadn’t planned for.”
The album, consisting of eleven tracks, was recorded more specifically in Saint-Rémy-de-Provence. The titles begin with “Armee der Tristen” (“The Army of the Sad”), a powerful folk song delivered on piano and with Till Lindemann’s soothing vocals. A title far from the usual group type.
On the team side, the band was once again assisted by producer Olsen Involtini. Regarding the cover, the artwork is a shot of Canadian musician and photographer Brian Adams on the steps of the impressive Trudelturm Tower, a former research tower in Berlin.
To see the group in France, you have to go to the Groupama stadium in Lyon, on July 8 and 9.
