The new KÄRBHOLZ studio album “Kapitel 10: Wilde Augen” will be released on June 2nd by Metalville Records.
What? Kärbholz again? Wasn’t it just „Kapitel 11: BARRIKADEN“; and now again? Who got it wrong?
A well-calculated promotional campaign or a total mathematical failure? In the house of Kärbholz, the creative spark seems to have started a conflagration with the first lockdown. Wait and see what time will bring, but don’t waste it was the credo and so the band not only composed material for a longplayer last year. No, songs for two full albums were created; all relevant and none that could have been parted with.
The only way for Kärbholz: Double In, Double Out.
The songs that were written in one episode were split between the two albums before production started: „Kapitel 10“ and „Kapitel 11“. And it was exactly in this order that the final recordings took place together with producers Alexander Dietz and Eike Freese. Week after week they lived and worked together. „Kapitel 10: WILDE AUGEN“ was finished – half-time – and off to production.
It continued with „Kapitel11: BARRIKADEN“ and exactly the moment when everything should change…
During the final studio phase for what was actually the second album “Kapitel11: BARRIKADEN”, this feeling spread… this feeling that everyone had, but no one dared:
This second album is actually the perfect FIRST album. These are actually the songs with which one wants to and should step out of the silence, which simply imposed themselves for this.
„Kapitel 10: WILDE AUGEN“ is more rudimentary and boisterous. It is the naughty brother with the torn trousers. But it is also the musical link between today and yesterday, perhaps most reminiscent of the 2009 album „RASTLOS“.
But what to do? „Kapitel 10: WILDE AUGEN“ was already produced. The vinyl was already on the table. And on it was written: KAPITELTEN! Irrefutable and irreversible. And even if no one here is considered a mathematical prodigy, 10 comes BEFORE 11.
But how was it a few years ago… “Always more heart than mind…”?
So what the hell! You know „Kapitel 11“? Then get to know „Kapitel 10 WILDE AUGEN“.
These eyes are hungry, want more and go round in circles… so in the end they don’t care… that little bit of maths.
