Obstler »Demonji«

CABACH4, edition of 100 cassettes, download and stream, distributed by Kompakt, 12 July 2019

Mystery Black Metal. To distract himself from more urgent work, Max Rieger (member of Die Nerven, producer of, amongst others, Drangsal, Ilgen-Nur, Jungstötter and Mia Morgan) approached his second album as Obstler (fruit schnaps), entitled »Demonji«. 

Black Metal is of interest to Max Rieger, but he does not know the genre very well. When the drummer of the group Juli, Marcel Römer, played six minutes of »black metal drums« for him, within three days Rieger quickly added guitar and vocals (guest vocals on »Hell Awaits«: Drangsal) to then put »Demonji« in his drawer for two years. Meanwhile, Rieger is already working on a third Obstler album. The two videos for the singles »Divine Divide« and »Hell Awaits« were directed by Max Wiedenhofer and Kurt Prödel, respectively.
