Erdling are unstoppable. A mere year after the release of the successfully charting debut album (#64 of the German album charts) the hard-working quartet fronted by singer Neill Devin is delivering the explosive successor, aptly titled “Supernova.”
And like it should be with any effective sequel, the likable gang of lads have cranked everything up to 11 on their second outing. “Supernova” is a harder, darker, more menacing and a great deal more mature version of Erdling: a hit-monster comprised of anthemic melodies, yet in a constant wrestling match with laconic German-language lyrics, a juggernaut of precise guitar riffing and a thudding machine of rhythm and electronics. This “Supernova” of Metal, Neue Deutsche Härte and Dark Rock is a highly combustible evolution of the themes of the first album, with eyes firmly set on new frontiers. The album will also be released as a deluxe double CD-version containing an exclusive bonus disc with remixes, alternative versions and re-interpretations of the new songs by the likes of Marc Görtz from Caliban, To The Rats And Wolves, Heldmaschine, Andy Brings (ex-Sodom, Double Crush Syndrome) and Calibre Infinite. In time for the album-release, Erdling will also be taking their new songs on the road, touring Germany as support of Hämatom... and, say what you will: this mix just rocks, little bouts of megalomania included. Out of the way, here's the Absolutus Rex! We are Erdling. We have come to conquer!
