Code666 has announced the signing of the Hamburg, Germany-based metal band TODTGELICHTER. The group's new album, "Angst", will be released on December 3 in a very special "City-Map" limited edition. The CD will also be available as a standard jewel case version.
Commented the band: "After negotiations with several labels, TODTGELICHTER has just signed a two-album deal with the renowned label Aural Music/Code666, and we are really excited to work with them. Having paved the path for bands such as ABORYM, NEGURA BUNGET, MANES, EPHEL DUATH, AMESOEURS and many more, this label stands for quality, non-conformism and artistic sophistication. Aural Music/Code666 has made an offer we couldn´t refuse — and we are sure they will be able to provide 'Angst' with the professional presentation it needs.
"At the moment, we are working together to bring you a special limited edition of 'Angst' besides the normal jewel case; and rest assured, it will truly live up to the meaning of the word 'special.'
"Concerning our mini-tour with EIS and GORATH in December — we will bring the album, new merchandise and hopefully the special edition, too. This will be your first chance to lay hands on 'Angst', so be there!
"Angst" track listing:
01. Café Of Lost Dreams
04. Phobos & Deimos
The CD was recorded and mixed by Eike Freese at the Hammer Studios (GAMMA RAY, DARK AGE, CALLEJON).
Formed in 2002, TODTGELICHTER has released three albums so far on Folter Records.
Regarding the band's upcoming CD, Code666 states in a press release, "We might call it post-metal with a black metal influence, but that would be belittling because 'Angst' is courageous, original, powerful, catchy, deep, moving and bloodily grand; in short, a record that cannot be ignored or confused with the tasteless tide that has been flooding the music market lately. 'Angst' breaks powerfully in all senses, and Code666 is very proud to publish it as our TOP PRIORITY for this late 2010."
