IN EXTREMO To Release 10-Year Anniversary Collection Next Month

German folk-metallers IN EXTREMO will release a 10-year anniversary album, entitled "Kein Blick Zurück" ("No Looking Back"), on December 8 via Universal Music in Germany. In addition to re-recordings of some of the band's "old and new hits with updated production" (including songs from the "Weckt Die Toten" record), the set will contain a bonus CD featuring cover versions of songs by SILBERMOND ("Die Gier"), GÖTZ ALSMANN ("Singapur"), KILLING JOKE, GRAVE DIGGER and the legendary German group OUGENWEIDE.

Based in Berlin, IN EXTREMO's musical style combines metal with medieval traditional songs, blending the sound of the standard rock/metal instruments with historical instruments (such as the bagpipes, harp, hurdy-gurdy and shawm). Versions of well-known traditional/medieval ballads make up the main part of their repertoire, but increasingly over the years, the band has also written its own material. Their own compositions are written in German, while the traditional songs are in a variety of languages, including (but not limited to) Spanish, English, Norwegian, Swedish, Icelandic, French, Hebrew, Latin and medieval German.
