The Spell is out now!

Today we release "The Spell" - a concept album based on the old motif of "Death and the Maiden", but with our own unique story of a girl who falls in love with the personification of Death. For the first time we wrote music according to a lyrical concept, we let the words of the story guide our melodies and rhythms and fully immersed ourselves in this fictional world. Now we invite you to do the same - dream, interpret, make it your own.

"The Spell" was written over a long period of time in various parts of the world. From the peaceful mountains in Switzerland to the busiest parts of New York city. We recorded the album in two parts, one in the Soundfarm Studios in Lucerne and the other at New Sound Studio with Tommy Vetterli who co-produced the album with Anna Murphy and mixed it.

We want to thank Kate at AISAmusic UK and everyone at Nuclear Blast for making this album possible. Tommy Vetterli (mix) and Tony Lindgren (mastering) for making the music shine. Tommy, Fredy & Dennis for co-writing with us. Costin for bringing the story to life with his amazing visuals. Fredy, Shir-Ran, Mitch, Andi & Patrik for their guest appearances.

And all of you for listening. We hope you enjoy it.
