Germany’s hottest band to date, FEUERSCHWANZ, unleash their new studio album, Fegefeuer [EN: Purgatory], on July 7, 2023 via Napalm Records! Formed in 2004, the band has gradually shifted from their roots in comedic medieval folk into a much more serious direction. With the switch to Napalm Records ahead of the release of Das Elfte Gebot (2020), FEUERSCHWANZ set their sights entirely on metal - soon becoming one of the most relevant German bands in the genre today. The band’s enormously successful previous album of original music, Memento Mori (2021), even stormed the official German charts, peaking at #1. After the great success of their latest album, the band headlined an almost completely sold out tour, and performed excellent co-headline sets at some of the most significant festivals, such as the legendary Wacken Open Air and Summer Breeze. FEUERSCHWANZ needs no further proof of being the hottest German folk metal band today! FEUERSCHWANZ spice up their medieval inspired folk metal with true heavy metal influences as Fegefeuer kicks off with outstanding opening track “SGFRD Dragonslayer”. Lyrical references to the legendary Siegfried Dragonslayer combine with heavy riffing...
