Black metal remains a musical chimera. From its fiery beginnings this extreme style proved to be as diverse as productive. German sons of this northern spawned darkness often display a penchant for bold aggression and directness as embodied by ENDSTILLE and NEGATOR. These virtues are also embraced by DER WEG EINER FREIHEIT. Yet the Franconians do not simply follow heavily trodden paths. Adding fragile moments of psychedelic meandering, these Germans have also been compared with WOLVES IN THE THRONE ROOM or DEAFHEAVEN. An extra dose of melancholy points towards their named influence IMPERIUM DEKADENZ and there are far more details to be discovered within the many layers of their harsh but strongly melodic new masterpiece ‘Stellar’. Founded in 2009 by guitarist Nikita Kamprad and vocalist Tobias Jaschinsky, DER WEG EINER FREIHEIT immediately gained attention in Germany with their self released debut ‘Der Weg einer Freiheit’ (2009). Limited to 200 copies the full-length quickly sold out and a new and improved version with real drumming was officially published in 2010. Following the EP ‘Agonie’ (2011), their sophomore album ‘Unstille’ (2012) created a strong buzz beyond German borders despite all lyrics being written in their native tongue. Having performed along such diverse acts as WOLVES IN THE THRONE ROOM, NEAERA, THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER, and WAR FROM A HARLOTS MOUTH prestigious festivals such as Summer Breeze Open Air and Wolfszeit Festival invited the band. In 2014 DER WEG EINER FREIHEIT impressed a Norwegian audience at Blastfest in Bergen to the point that they received immediate offers for further shows. In the meantime main songwriter Nikita Kamprad had taken over vocal duties after co-founding member Tobias had quit. In late autumn, the Germans entered Ghost City Recording studios to work on their third full-length ‘Stellar’, which has hit the world with irresistible force.
