Hanzel und Gretyl

HANZEL UND GRETYL – HEXENNACHT
new album out 13.12.19 [Metropolis Records]
includes – WOLVES + WITCHES

New York based industrial metal duo Hanzel und Gretyl return with their glorious ninth album, ‘Hexennacht’, a bestial feast of mechanised blast beats, earsplitting guitars and shrieks from the very bowels of hell! It sees Kaizer Von Loopy and Vas Kallas continue their dark descent into the forest of an imagined Bavarian Halloween, blending black metal themes and aesthetics with industrial strength power. Surrender to the dark side of the galactic forest and enjoy the evil madness of ‘Hexennacht’ as HuG beseech you to join them in their glorious damnation from an otherworldly vortex.

Formed in New York in 1993, Hanzel und Gretyl have released eight previous albums and toured with Marilyn Manson, Prong, Slipknot, Rammstein, Ministry and Cradle Of Filth.

The band began their association with Metropolis Records in 2003 when the label issued the third HuG album, ‘Über Alles’, which was described as a ‘futuristic Wagnerian rock opera’ and received great reviews from publications as diverse as Kerrang! (UK) and The Village Voice (US). Follow-up ‘Scheissmessiah’ was memorably reviewed as ‘Handel’s Messiah from Hell’, while death and black metal elements were incorporated into HuG’s sound on 2008 concept record ’2012: Zwanzig Zwölf’. ‘Born To Be Heiled’ (2012) was an eclectic blend of death, black and doom metal, classic rock, electronic and industrial elements and ‘Black Forest Metal’ (2014), employed satanic themes cross-referenced with forest motifs from the original Brothers Grimm fairy tale. 2018 saw the duo celebrate their 25th anniversary with the release of ‘Satanik Germanik’.
