metal remains a musical chimera. From its fiery beginnings this extreme
style proved to be as diverse as productive. German sons of this
northern spawned darkness often display a penchant for bold aggression
and directness as embodied by ENDSTILLE and NEGATOR. These virtues are
also embraced by DER WEG EINER FREIHEIT.
Yet the Franconians do not simply follow heavily trodden paths. Adding
fragile moments of psychedelic meandering, these Germans have also been
compared with WOLVES IN THE THRONE ROOM or DEAFHEAVEN. An
extra dose of melancholy points towards their named influence IMPERIUM
DEKADENZ and there are far more details to be discovered within the many
layers of their harsh but strongly melodic new masterpiece ‘Stellar’.
Founded in 2009 by guitarist Nikita Kamprad and vocalist Tobias
Jaschinsky, DER WEG EINER FREIHEIT immediately gained attention in
Germany with their self released debut ‘Der Weg einer Freiheit’ (2009).
Limited to 200 copies the full-length quickly sold out and a new and
improved version with real drumming was officially published in 2010.
Following the EP ‘Agonie’ (2011), their sophomore album ‘Unstille’
(2012) created a strong buzz beyond German borders despite all lyrics
being written in their native tongue. Having performed along such
diverse acts as WOLVES IN THE THRONE ROOM, NEAERA, THE BLACK DAHLIA
MURDER, and WAR FROM A HARLOTS MOUTH prestigious festivals such as
Summer Breeze Open Air and Wolfszeit Festival invited the band. In 2014
DER WEG EINER FREIHEIT impressed a Norwegian audience at Blastfest in
Bergen to the point that they received immediate offers for further
shows. In the meantime main songwriter Nikita Kamprad had taken over
vocal duties after co-founding member Tobias had quit. In late autumn,
the Germans entered Ghost City Recording studios to work on their third
full-length ‘Stellar’, which is now ready to hit the world with
irresistible force. Get ready and brace for a massive black impact!
