DER WEG EINER FREIHEIT Burn Your Face Off With "Aufbruch"
German visionaries, DER WEG EINER FREIHEIT have been churning out some of my favorite black metal songs for years, and their latest album, Finisterre, is an absolutely soul crushing beautiful opus drenched in melodic melancholy. Listening to the record requires a full sit down every single time for me, which is only one of the many reasons you can find it on my Top of 2017 list.
Since the release, the band has been tirelessly touring the other half of the world, raising hell everywhere they go. As we await their triumphant return to the states, we at least get a glimpse of DWEF live via their latest video for "Aufbruch"!
The band comments:
"After many hours of hard work, we are finally able to present you this live video for 'Aufbruch', which was filmed during our European tour last year. Visual footage was captured at various locations including Munich, Salzburg, Budapest, Vienna, Leipzig, and Berlin, while the audio was recorded live at our final show of this tour at the Lido in Berlin. Watching this clip, we can hardly wait to get back on the road for our tour with Primordial and Moonsorrow, and a great festival season that will take us to beautiful Iceland, Romania, and after more than 2 years finally back to our hometown Würzburg."
Grab your copy of Finisterre right here, and check them out on tour with Primordial and Moonsorrow if you're in EU!
