Chris Maragoth releases his new Single “BEHIND THIS DOOR”

Magdeburg, Germany – On March 9, 2021 solo artist CHRIS MARAGOTH releases his new single called “BEHIND THIS DOOR” on all major streaming services, media stores and on Bandcamp. The music video will also be available on the same day on the official YouTube channel. “BEHIND THIS DOOR” is a Power Ballad that was actually written a few years ago after a very painful breakup, but it took a while until Chris felt ready to finish the song. He finally recorded “BEHIND THIS DOOR” during the Covid19-lockdown in end of 2020. As its origin suggests, the song is about a hard time after a relationship has ended. The song’s protagonist is facing the fact that the beloved one will not come back and is trying to move on. The phrase “when a door closes, a window opens” comes into the protagonist’s mind, but what is, if the protagonist is (still) loving the one who is behind this door? Although Chris has written the lyrics inspired by his own situation many years ago and is maintaining the vocals for this song, it is important for him to leave it open what gender the protagonist or the beloved one have, so that everyone can put themselves in their shoes.

A Vile Gathering

(Instrumental Melodic Metal, Deathcore, Djent)

On January 24, 2021 solo artist CHRIS MARAGOTH releases together with his best friend NEUN a new EP called “A VILE GATHERING” on Bandcamp and SoundCloud. This EP will be free for download on both platforms.  

“A VILE GATHERING” will contain 3 instrumental songs. These songs are named after rare and mythic Magic The Gathering cards of the ancient and majestic ELDRAZI race. Alien-like creatures, originating from the ethers between the planes, devouring all mana and life energy until every world is obliterated. Three of the most over-powered titan-forms are the REALITY SMASHER, the OBLIVION SOWER, and the VOID WINNOWER.  

Take a pinch of Deathcore and a dash of Modern Melodic Metal, add a bit of Djent to the mix and then you got a good description of what to expect when you listen to “A VILE GATHERING”.  

Being a guitarist primarily, Chris writes, arranges and records instrumental and vocal parts on his own.

Occasionally Chris collaborates with other musicians, but mostly friends and former band mates.

The musical style is a fluent transition between several genres of rock and metal music, but can be mostly described as modern rock and melodic metal.
