BETONTOD – will release their 1000th concert on Blu-ray/2-CD!

„The mainstream will never like us because we’re different! We’re different than all the other acts that are played every day. We aren’t smooth, we have rough edges… and it’s good the way it is!” Writer and composer Frank Vohwinkel’s statement explains the ethos of BETONTOD. Shying away from mainstream coverage on the radio and in press, the band exude a DIY attitude and it’s what drives them as a band.

Playing their 1000th concert on December 17, 2016 in the “Mitsubishi Electric Hall” in Düsseldorf, the band explains why this milestone is important: “We wanted to show everyone that it’s possible to have success without all this music business stuff. We want every young band that sees us to think: ‘If they can achieve this, we can do this too!’ It’s our message to the mainstream – and our drive!”

More than 3500 people joined their 1000th concert, making it the biggest concert in the band’s history – but this isn’t the end of the story yet!

BETONTOD documented this special show on Blu-ray/2-CD and will release it on November 17th. The bonus disc includes all four videos from their current album »Revolution«.

Keine Popsongs
Flügel aus Stahl
Küss mich
Nacht im Ghetto
Generation X
Schwarzes Blut
Feuer frei!
7 Schuss
Mein letzter Tag
Freiheit in Ketten
Kinder des Zorns
Ihr könnt mich!
Halt mich
Traum von Freiheit
Glück auf
Ich nehme dich mit
Viva Punk!
Im Himmel

The pre-order for »1.000x Live« will start on October 13th, 2017!

NOVELISTS – ’Noir’ is out now and the new lyric video for ’Lead The Light’ was released

Today up and coming modern progressive metal outfit NOVELISTS have released their second record »Noir« today! The album is now available everywhere. The band also released their new lyric video for ‘Lead The Light’.

Order »Noir« now here: http://geni.us/NovelistsNoir
Watch ‘Lead The Light’ here: https://youtu.be/SBpj6E-Imuo

Press quotes:

Hard Rock Hell Magazine:
“…they deftly meld shimmering melodies with punchy, djent riffery, and they do it very well: Lead The Light, for instance, could give much of Periphery’s back catalogue a run for its money, and Heal The Wound is similarly spectacular.”

Rock Sound:
“Parisian metallers Novelists don’t do things entirely by the book… (Noir) It’s a melting pot of styles that comes together well, giving the band a foot in the Warped Tour world as much as, say, the metal scene… this is good, versatile stuff.” 

Broken Amp:
“Novelists’ real innovation – and for me their trademark – is their delicacy, a characteristic which is very difficult to achieve within the boundaries of metalcore. The harmonics in ‘The Light, the Fire’ are irresistibly pretty, as are the elegant guitar melodies in ‘Under Different Welkins’, the fluid guitar playing providing a perfect foil to the juddering rhythms… Noir is an album in which to lose yourself.”

Metal Hammer:
“(Novelists) should be applauded for doing what they do very well. Songs like Monochrome may trade on predictable build-and-boom dynamics, but when they swell to such a glorious payoff it’s hard to argue against.” 

The band recently announced to support Australian deathcore powerhouse MAKE THEM SUFFER on their Worlds Apart European Tour 2017. They’ll also share the stage with CURSED EARTH.
