Sounds | Beyond The Black, Is There Anybody Out There?



Naar symphonic metal normen is deze Is There Anybody Out There? van het Duitse Beyond The Black een redelijk minimalistische track. Niet volgestouwd met arrangementen, solo's, koren en wat weet ik nog allemaal. Enkel een vrij basic orchestratie werd aan dit nummer geplakt. Zangeres Jennifer Haben moet zich in dit nummer ook helemaal niet 'over the top smijten'.

Best gewaagd, want op die manier kan de 'song' zelf zich helemaal niet verstoppen. En alhoewel de melodie en riffs vrij straight forward zijn blijft het nummer toch overeind.

Ook de clip houdt het allemaal vrij basic en die aanpak werkt in dit geval overtuigend.

Op 9 oktober kunnen de fans met bijna 2 jaar vertraging, eindelijk gaan kijken naar de show van Beyond The Black en Amaranthe in zaal Trix, Antwerpen!

After BEYOND THE BLACK already released their new single 'Reincarnation' a few months ago, they now present their next track 'Is There Anybody Out There?'.

Jennifer Haben proclaims:

"These times confront us with unknown demons and often times we must lose our principles painfully to find new paths. 'Is There Anybody Out There?‘ shines light on these dark moments to give you power to handle them bravely. Be beacons, Ravens! This world needs you!"

German Symphonic Metal shooting stars BEYOND THE BLACK look back on a stratospheric success story. Already their 2015 debut album hit like a bomb in their home country. Songs Of Love And Death besieged the German Top 15 for weeks and lead up to the band being awarded the Metal Hammer Award 2015 for “Best Debut”. Its successor Lost In Forever (2016) entered the German charts on #4 right away and paved ways for a huge tour from Germany over countries like UK, Russia or Japan. Since the band’s live debut in 2014 they have played the world’s biggest Metal festival Wacken Open Air several times and toured as a support act for heavy weights such as AEROSMITH, KORN, SCORPIONS, SAXON or WITHIN TEMPTATION. In the course of album release number three Heart Of the Hurricane BEYOND THE BLACK absolved their first own European headline tour in fall 2019 consisting of over 20 shows in 10 countries–most of them sold out. But even before finishing their touring cycle BEYOND THE BLACK got back to the studio to write record number four. The highly anticipated Horizons was finally released in June 2020, entered the German album charts on #3 (CH #6, AT #16, BE #53) and marks the band’s most successful album release to date.
