“The heaviest love songs of all times” – this is how the band describes their new album and hits the bull’s eye. Driving guitars, furious drumming, and angry screaming shouts dominate the album. But also expressive solos, melancholic lyrics, and emotional clear vocals make their mark on the album. “Mitten ins Herz” is an epic, modern metal album with influences from Core and carries the roots of the band into a modern era by introducing fresh influences.
“Mitten ins Herz” is the harshest and at the same time most catchy GROOVENOM album to date,” confirms frontman Mr. Sanz, “we have musically reached a new level in terms of heaviness and brutality, fitting to the rather raw production.”
In addition to some instrumental tracks, frontman Mr. Sanz shares the vocals with guitarist Tightuz for the first time. “Mitten ins Herz” thrives on its many interesting contrasts. The album was recorded in the midst of the Corona pandemic and is thus trauma and therapy all in one for the band. With exquisite guest vocalists including Christoph Wieczorek, Neill Freiwald, and Vanessa Katakalos there are three more surprising tracks on the album. “Mitten ins Herz” describes subjects like desire, sex, greed, addiction, and loss in an extremely biting and cynical way. An absolutely unembellished reckoning of the dream of true love and at the same time unconditional desire for it. The lyrics sway between furious rage and yearning grief. There have never been songs about love and passion performed in such a wicked way before!
