The Hirsch Effekt Share Video For New Single “Deklaration”

The Hirsch Effekt share their new single “DEKLARATION” along with a music video. It’s the fourth single from the band’s 5th studio album KOLLAPS released in May 2020 via Long Branch Records. KOLLAPS encounters everyday madness with elaborate counterpoints and ludicrous lyric lines. In a heavier manner, the band slips into the roles of other, social actors to reflect the aspects of their agenda: a dispute with the systematic collapse is thematized from the perspective of the „Fridays For Future“-movement, depicted in a musical dainty or a bizarre way, then again also to corrode opposers in a strobe-like manner.

The Hirsch Effekt about the new single “DEKLARATION”:
“Many of the riffs in “DEKLARATION” were written by Moritz. Funnily, all three members in the band have different opinions on how hard it’s to master the playability of the song. The rhythmic pattern for the Meshuggah-esque part that can be heard shortly before the second chorus already existed already way back when writing „Eskapist“. It never made it on the album though. The lyrics were written partially in April of last year but only finished much later due to creative interruptions. Some of the lyrics had to be reformed and rewritten because of complications that came along with the usage of quotes and the rightful way of dealing with the subject.”
KOLLAPS is available now as Box-Set, CD/LP+T-Shirt Bundle, CD, 2LP, Stream and Download. Order the album here

After their last album Eskapist (2017), which charted #21 on the German album charts, and formidable show-offs at Wacken Open Air, Full Force Festival and as recent headliners at the renowned Euroblast Festival, The Hirsch Effekt have now spawned their new ogre. Musically, the trio from Hanover, Germany, has once again settled in the microcosm of progressive metal and enhanced their songs with their typical trademark of – at first glance totally out of the line – genre-hopping.
Similar as on previous records, it happens again by Hirsch-style chopping of parts and beats, that first off felt safe and usual. In between chorals resound, helping to find one’s way back to a necessary recollection. On the one side it’s a euphonious, on the other side a hurting listening experience that leads to a heightened perception of the exposure of the human disorientation, and serves as a call to the solitary consciousness of courageous individuals – to gather together at concerts.
Live, this symbolic demise is celebrated purification. This can be celebrated together with the fans at upcoming shows, by the way of indulging unison and clamor, questioning oneself whether the own heart and thoughts have gone prone to egoism or still are in line with the harmony of hope, that is hidden within Kollaps.
Line Up:
Moritz Schmidt (Drums)
