|Having hit #21 on the German album charts, and with formidable show-offs at Wacken Open Air, Full Force Festival, ArcTanGent plus headlining the renowned
Euroblast Festival, THE HIRSCH EFFEKT have impressively established themselves in the German progressive metal landscape.
Three years after the release of their latest album ‘Kollaps’, the band marks their return with the release of their upcoming full-length, entitled ‘Urian’, out September 29 via Long Branch Records.
Musically, ‘Urian’ dives deep into the increasingly obtrusive ambivalence between crises and everyday life. Significantly less conceptual than the 2020 album ‘Kollaps’, it is nevertheless an absolute musical evolution. Textual ciphers are more intimate, relationships and references apparently obvious, while socio-political topics are discussed, and current developments are critically questioned. In addition to democracy-destroying bots that nestle in human brains via Instagram comments, THE HIRSCH EFFEKT gives a voice to the voiceless, for whom a beautiful life is still waiting.
