German black metallers NEBELKRÄHE have inked a deal with Mighty Music.

Three years after the release of its debut album, NEBELKRÄHE has completed work on the follow-up, “Lebensweisen”, to be made available on February 18.

NEBELKRÄHE was founded as a traditional death/black metal band in early 2007 in Munich. Not long after this, the style of the band changed in to a slightly progressive yet melancholic black metal, and in early 2008 umbrA (ATRORUM) joined the band, thus completing the lineup. NEBELKRÄHE released its debut CD, “entfremdet”, in June 2009 and is now ready with its second full-length album, “Lebensweisen”. The CD was mixed and mastered by Christoph Brandes at Iguana Studios (IMPERIUM DEKADENZ, NECROPHAGIST, UNLIGHT). The aim of his work was to give the material a contemporary sound, yet maintain the charm of a “natural“ black metal production, as well as combine tradition and a modern feel in the sound.

According to a press release, “Lebensweisen” offers a versatile and highly individual combination of traditional black metal elements and a plethora of influences from other genres, that makes the sound progressive and vintage at the same time, and clearly aimed at fans from both ends of the genre. Markus Stock (EMPYRIUM, THE VISION BLEAK, NOEKK) calls it “a very original album that can hardly be compared to others.”
