New Releases: November 15th, 2019 Denner’s Inferno, Die Krupps + More

Denner's Inferno


Here are some new releases that drop today, and may interest you:

Denner’s Inferno – In Amber

We previously discussed Chandler Mogel’s appearance on the album and featured the release of the Fountain Of Grace EP in August. Everything I’ve heard leading up to the release of the album has Michael Denner written all over it.

It’s his classic creepy metal riffs, mixed with a touch of NWOBHM feel that’s made him such an influence to so many players over the years. If you’re a fan of Denner’s playing, this is a must-have for you.

Die Krupps – Vision 2020 Vision

I got to interview Die Krupps mastermind Jurgen Engler back in the early 90s. At the time Hollywood Records had just released their Metallica tribute album. His brand of music was totally new to me, I thought it was cool and different, but I didn’t entirely grasp it.

This was before becoming a huge fan of bands like Nine Inch Nails and KMFDM, and realizing that my love for Depeche Mode and hard rock/metal could be combined into something that unbeknownst to me was industrial metal. This would come later, and what I wasn’t aware of is that the band at that point in time had been together for over fifteen years, and were in fact pioneers in the genre.

Thirty-nine years after the band released their first album comes Vision 2020 Vision, the CD and DVD are closely tied together, it is a concept album that tells a story about a grim present and future that many of us face. It is classic Die Krupps in every way shape or form, it is a must-get for anyone that is a fan of the band.

Hanging Garden – Into That Good Night

This is my new to me entry for the week, the Finnish doom metal band has been around since 2004. The band is an interesting mix of things, I can hear everything from The Cure, to Bauhaus, to H.I.M., to Paradise Lost in their music.

It’s an interesting mix for sure, and although it seems kind of mellow at times, there is a gut-punch of heaviness waiting around the corner to catch you off guard.  Looking for something different, while still heavy, check this album out.
