MEMBARIS Completes Work On 'Grenzgänger'

German black metallers MEMBARIS will release their third full-length album, "Grenzgänger", in early 2010 via ARTicaz. According to a press releaese, the music on the follow-up to 2007's "Into Nevermore" ranges from chaotic, aggressive, cold but yet melodic black metal to more meditative sound structures that can best be described as ambient/noise in the vein of the Scandinavian originators of these genres. The CD features German and English lyrics dealing with astronomy, fatalism, the idea of eternity and the fragility of life. The record will feature an exceptional artwork done by the paintress Fina Krüger, who has contributed her own vision to each of the songs.

Black Metal has always been music for those able and willing to cross physical and emotional borders in life and beyond. With "Grenzgänger" (which can be translated as "wanderer among the borders"), MEMBARIS proclaim its new musical interpretation of this lifestyle.

Commented guitarist B.: "This time we really wanted to know how far we can go with our vision. As we totally created this beast by our own, we were able to leave all boundaries behind that distorted our music in the past. We wanted to create something that is not easy to follow, nor to understand. We wanted to draw pictures people from the ordinary world wouldn't enjoy to look at."

A song from the upcoming album, "Realisation Of The Demon", is available for streaming on the MEMBARIS MySpace page.

MEMBARIS this year celebrates its 10th year of existence.
