The German gothic rock project Cradle of Haze, which was founded in 2000 by producer and songwriter Thorsten Eligehausen, can look back on a long and successful music past. In over 20 years of band history, the Gothic Rockers released twelve studio albums and several singles, which allowed them to make a name for themselves in the scene.
After the twelfth studio album with the appropriate title XII, the band now returns with the new impressive work Zehntausend Seelen. With this album, the band wants to deal with the dark sides of being human and deals with topics such as: fears, emotions, longings. - Read more here Soundmagnet
Cradle of Haze: New album with old line-up! German gothic rockers "Cradle of Haze" release "Zehntausend Seelen", their 14th studio album. "Zehntausend Seelen" comes with eight crisp and to the point, straightforward gothic rock/gothic metal songs. The lyrics are as usual morbidly gloomy and describe once the dark sides of the humanoid being, primal fears, emotions and desires, socio-critical aspects as well as inglorious characteristics of the human species. Here, too, the true messages of the songs are not always clearly discernible and leave room for the listener's own interpretations.
FFO: Rammstein, Lindemann, Erdling
On this album, singer Anni Meier is also back. The two voices once again complement each other to create a harmonious sound that shapes and colors the songs and their messages. In the selection of sounds, mastermind Thorsten Eligehausen decided to use more orchestral instruments on this album, in addition to the dominant electric guitars; electronic instruments were deliberately used less this time. "This selection and combination of instruments, coupled with our voices results in the modern sound of Cradle of Haze. It underlines the catchy melodies and underpins the message of the songs," says Thorsten Eligehausen. Of course, there is also a special guest on this album that must be mentioned! The eldest daughter of the "family business" Cradle of Haze, for which a special EP (Hand in Hand) was released especially for her birth in 2015, got her first little assignment on the song "Kinder der Dunkelheit".
As a small foretaste, the song "Wie der Wind" was released on YouTube on April 26, 2021.
"Zehntausend Seelen" will be released on May 21, 2021 and is available for download and streaming.
