Hammerheart Records has announced the signing of the Dutch sludge metal band FEHLER. The band’s new album, “Dissona”, will be released in the spring. The CD will feature cover artwork by Comaworx (DEATHSPELL OMEGA, URFAUST, PORTAL, NECROPHAGIA).
FEHLER is a four-piece outfit from the southern part of the Netherlands featuring guitarist Twan van Geel (LEGION OF THE DAMNED). Influenced by heavyweight bands such as CROWBAR, TORCHE, MASTODON and HIGH ON FIRE, FEHLER produces “a dark blend of groundshaking riffs, heavy rhythms and melodic, dissonant atmospheres with songs ranging from short and aggressive outbursts to sound-layered epics,” according to a press relase.
Commented Guido Heijnens, AR manager at Hammerheart: “From the first moment I heard an unmixed version of ‘Dissona’, I knew this was a killer release. And after talking to the guys from FEHLER, I was convinced they would work hard to get their name out there. One thing is sure, though, the band’s name — which is German for ‘mistake’ — is opposite to the feeling you get after hearing this monster of an album!!!”
