They create dynamic and melodic Black Metal, heavily influenced by Post Rock/
Metal, spiced with accents of Melo Death/Doom, and a touch of melancholic
Their first record “Our Lives out of Balance” saw the light of day in 2014
(self-released 30-min. EP). A personnel change at the drums in 2016 sparked
new energy and creativity. This resulted in their debut Full-length “Transitions”
(self-released in 2017), re-released via Moment of Collapse Records in 2018,
available as CD and Vinyl LP.
“Transitions” marks a step forward clearly audible and visible: Four fresh and
more complex songs came along with a hand-drawn artwork and an illustrated
booklet/inlay, specially designed following the idea of the album. While the
lyrical concept deals with the naturalness, the presence and absence of light
on this earth in a metaphorical sense, Außerwelt are widening their stylistic
repertoire without losing their musical core. The band's heart beats in and
across different genres, thus the dynamics range between raging blastbeats,
accompanied by tremolo picking, calm ambience and progressive playing.
The vocals offer a broad range of screams, growls and clean vocals, and are
reminiscent of Der Weg Einer Freiheit, Heretoir, Isis or Lantlôs.
“Transitions” was recorded in autumn 2017 and is mixed and mastered by
Dennis Koehne (Sodom, Melechesh, Tristania, Spin My Fate etc.).
The production is a collaboration between Koehne and drummer Kris Lucas.
