After six successful albums as MEGAHERZ, Alexx Wesselsky and Noel Pix decided to start a new project that retained all the heavy guitars and pounding bass lines of their old band while incorporating more industrial electronic elements. Calling themselves EISBRECHER ("Ice Breaker"), the group's self-titled debut album "shows that they've clearly achieved their goal," according to an official press release. Already available in Germany, the album reached position No. 13 on the Deutschen Alternative Top 20 (DAT) Chart. "Eisbrecher" will be released in the U.S. on June 20 through Dancing Ferret Discs.

EISBRECHER's lyrics are in German, with "deep, bombastic male vocals that range from melodic singing to hoarse growling," according to the press release. "There are faster, dance-floor-friendly cuts to please industrial music fans as well as slower, pounding tracks that will have metal fans banging their heads. Their debut disc is thematically built around ice, winter, and cold, which is hardly surprising given their name." A live date in America is expected to be announced during the coming weeks.
