krayenzeit tenebraExciting news from the Krayenzeit fold: the band from southern Germany, formed in 2011, will be raising the roof this summer as they present their new album Tenebra, a worthy successor to their 2015 debut Auf dunklen Schwingen, which received unanimous praise from the trade press, the online community and the fans alike. With Tenebra the seven-piece band continue to develop their own style, documenting unequivocally that their musical roots lie in metal but at the same time adhering to the diversity of folklore influences. Whereas tracks such as ´Noli timere messorem` are notable for their driving double bass passages, and ´Ruf der Lamia` for its modern riffing, tracks like ´Narrenschiff` and ´Chimaera` are defined by traditional musical instruments such as the chalumeau, rauschpfeife, tin whistle, low whistle, concertina and hurdy-gurdy.
As on their first album, Krayenzeit manage to tell atmospheric and tragic tales without watering down the haunting melodies on Tenebra. The musicians have consciously focused on the strengths of their debut, developing an energetic, melodic and varied sound that is so far unique on the folk and medieval metal scene. For the production of Tenebra Krayenzeit once again invited musical guests to the studio: whilst support on the first album came from Malte Hoyer of Versengold and Mr Hurley of the Pulveraffen, for Tenebra they recruited the assistance of Nik (bagpipes, shawms) and Laui (hurdy-gurdy) from label mates, Nachtgeschrei. The crows are promoting their new album with extensive appearances this summer including larger, renowned festivals such as WGT, the Feuertanz Festival, the Funkenflug Festival and Wacken, before accompanying Schandmaul as special guests on their ´Leuchtfeuer Tour 2016/2017`.
