THE HIRSCH EFFEKT Premiere Video for “Berceuse”

THE HIRSCH EFFEKT Premiere Video for New Single "Berceuse"
After their breathless Holon album trilogy, The Hirsch Effekt have probably crafted their most extreme, darkest and most complex chapter, which goes by the name of Eskapist and was released on August 18th, 2017. The album set an exclamation point with charting at #21 in the official German album charts. The Hirsch Effekt‘s third single “Berceuse” is out today. Watch the video below.

Socially critical, caustically political and musically overwhelming, the fourth album from the Hanoverian band is truly a lesson in progressive metal, prog and core. All three band members – drummer Moritz Schmidt, guitarist and singer Nils Wittrock and bassist and singer Ilja John Lappin – had an equal share in the writing of the record. The 12 complex compositions, interfused with prog, tech and sludge metal, continually shift between the different styles and were recorded with Tim Tautorat (who has previously worked with In Flames, Manic Street Preachers), Max Trieder and various guest musicians in Hanover, Leipzig and Berlin.

Escapism, in its many different forms, is the link between the different pieces and what holds the album together. Escaping from society, “circumstances” or private life. Once again the band’s lyrics tackle issues that hurt and their music, which demands to be listened to, strikes almost incomparable in its intensity.

With the Eskapist album, The Hirsch Effekt give us their final comment on our time. In simple terms: remarkably intense music.
