Erdling are unstoppable. A mere year after the release of the successfully charting debut album (#64 of the German album charts) the hard-working quartet fronted by singer Neill Devin is delivering the explosive successor, aptly titled “Supernova.”
And like it should be with any effective sequel, the likable gang of lads have cranked everything up to 11 on their second outing. “Supernova” is a harder, darker, more menacing and a great deal more mature version of Erdling: a hit-monster comprised of anthemic melodies, yet in a constant wrestling match with laconic German-language lyrics, a juggernaut of precise guitar riffing and a thudding machine of rhythm and electronics. This “Supernova” of Metal, Neue Deutsche Härte and Dark Rock is a highly combustible evolution of the themes of the first album, with eyes firmly set on new frontiers.
