Ashlar von Megalon's band of Electro-templars are unveiling the next chapter of their epic saga. “Aerdenbrand” (= “Earthburn”) is fusing modern club sounds with medieval romanticism and Neue Deutsche Härte.
Yet again, the brotherhood of undead knights templar is facing a dark menace. A fallen angel has plunged from the sky to push the weak and the innocent over the brink. The world and the established order are threatened to be swallowed by the remorseless pit of darkness. With a skillful symbiosis of the old and the new, Ashlar von Megalon and his companions are attempting to win the battle against the ever-growing brutalization and infamousness in this world and to overcome impending doom: forward-driving electronic beats meet epic choral chants while electronic bagpipes and hard guitar riffs are relentlessly cutting their way through darkness. Fortunately, the templars are not entirely alone in their quest, receiving vocal backup from guesting knight Joachim Witt. Heimataerde yet again use their unique club-sound-driven approach to tell us of of long gone times and battles... and parallels to today's turbulent times are purely coincidental... or are they? Or is this maybe a fairy tale that plays out every day? So, brothers, raise your swords and rage, rage against the dying of the light! “Aerdenbrand” will also be released as a deluxe double disc containing the story of the album told on an enthralling German-language audio book as a bonus and as a limited edition 3CD set in a Digipak longbox (999 copies) which contains the double disc plus the first ever Heimataerde live album (a recording of the group's show at the Out Of Line Weekender 2015, plus two bonus versions of “Fühl die Zeit”) plus a hand-numbered ownership certificate as exclusive bonus content.
