| Legendary German thrash metallers Eure Erben (ex-Darkness) is working on its second, as yet untitled album. Guitarist /singer Arnd Klink said, â€śThe band has music written for 6 songs. The new album will include 11 brand new tracksâ€ť. The album will be released in late October this year. Eure Erben are negotiating with some labels to release the new album. |
Eure Erbenâ€™s debut full-length album â€śTerror 2.0â€ť came out in late 2010. The first pressing of the album was sold out shortly after its release, and in 2011 a new pressing came out, which is still available on the bandâ€™s website ( http://www.eureerben.de/index.htm.)
Although Eure Erben songs are in German, the album â€śTerror 2.0â€ť includes a bonus CD with English versions of all songs. â€śThis is a kind of tribute to Darkness fans because many people always think of Darkness when they talk about us", says Klink. "DARKNESS is our history, itâ€™s a big history in the background and so we said, "Ok, there are many people who like English lyrics, many people who like Darkness, so it will be our tribute to those people."
Guitarist Hobie adds: "Translating the songs, keeping the message and also the measure (or at least a similar one) was some work, but I think we did a good job. Iâ€™m satisfied with them." Eure Erbenâ€™s history began in 1984, when drummer Andreas â€śLackyâ€ť Lakaw decided to start his own band Darkness. During the 1980â€™s the band put out three full-length albums: â€śDeath Squadâ€ť (1987), â€śDefenders Of Justiceâ€ť (1988) and â€śConclusion and Revivalâ€ť (1989). After the bandâ€™s break-up all the musicians continued to work on different projects, and in 2004 Klink and Lacky decided to join forces and play classic Teutonic thrash metal. It was supposed to be a reunion of Darkness but having only Two members of the original line-up they decided to use a new name. The band also decided to write songs with German lyrics to have an opportunity for better expression of their opinions about what happens to the world nowadays.
Since 2004 Eure Erben has put out Two EPs ("Eure Erbenâ€ť, (2006) and â€śEure Faeusteâ€ť, (2007)) and one full-length album. Once in a while the band used to perform under The Darkness monicker, like it was at the show In Memory of late Sodom drummer Chris â€śWitchhunterâ€ť Dudek in 2009.
