Top-charting German force FEUERSCHWANZ will release their new studio album, Fegefeuer, on July 7, 2023 via Napalm Records.
The successor to 2021’s acclaimed Memento Mori (#1 Official German Album Charts) is fully dedicated to metal and thus consistently continues the band’s path away from their comedic rock roots of days gone by.
Today, the band has already released the album’s first single, Bastard von Asgard feat. Eluveitie singer Fabienne Erni (in German), alongside an official music video – a straight Heavy Metal track in pure FEUERSCHWANZ style. In the official music video, Hauptmann Feuerschwanz is attacked by real wolves before Hodi and Fabienne put a bloody end to it.
FEUERSCHWANZ on Bastard von Asgard: “With this song, we pay our rightful tribute to the old gods! It is set in the saga world of the Vikings and deals with end of the world of betrayal and deceit. Odin’s son meets Loki’s bastard – with vocal support from Fabienne Erni, singer of the folk metal pioneers Eluveite! To do justice to the epic saga, we have turned the speed up to full blast and march toward the end of the world. Ragnarök can come!”
