Welcome to the post-factual age! An ominous, sinister future lurks before us. On their seventh studio-album TRAUMA: RITUAL [:SITD:] reflect on the most critical issues of our times: fanaticism, irrationality and protectionism.
TRAUMA: RITUAL will be released as limited 1st edition double cd, in beautiful digipak including the TRAUMA: CULT bonus cd with 6 exclusive tracks, i.e. band’s own club, single and extended versions from the tracks Puls:Schlag, Genesis and Incendium, as well as massive remixes of Brother Death and Mundlos created by AESTHETIC PERFECTION, INTENT:OUTTAKE and SHORT AND CRUNCH.
The incredibly danceable brand-new songs like Genesis, Companion, Cicatrix and Walls have Eyes amount gloomily, powerfully and morbidly to a menacing thunderstorm, while the lyrics keep digging heavily and deeply in the furtive, ruthlessly revealing the abyss of the human psyche. TRAUMA: RITUAL is an almost sixty-minute long masterpiece, which ends with the epic tune Zenit, which is definitely one of the album highlights. [:SITD:] tear down the walls, they open the doors to freedom, and finally they unite. At the end of it all, hope prevails.
Quite a big surprise is the collaboration between the band from the Ruhr-Area and guest singer DENNIS SCHOBER, the well-known vocalist from SOLITARY EXPERIMENTS, on the catchy club anthem Puls:Schlag (i.e. “pulsation” or “pulse:beat”). It’s the first duet EVER with another artist on an official [:SITD:] release!
Furthermore the three protagonists CARSTEN JACEK, TOM LESCZENSKI und FRANCESCO D'ANGELO filmed a video for the album track Genesis with director BORIS MAY (KLANGSTABIL).
