Steeds verder weg van hun symphonic metal roots, steeds minder 'black' in hun sound. Juffrouw Haben weet vrdoriee hoe ze een sterke popsong moet schijven en exact daar liggen ook haar roots. De 'band' is eigenlijk slechts een vehicel om de goedogende en getalenteerde Jennifer Haben naar eenzame hoogten te stuwen. BTB is een goed geoliede marketing machine en lijkt niet te stoppen. Systematisch wordt op de charts in diverse landen gemikt en na het enorme succes in thuishaven Duitsland en omstreken gaan nu ook Nederland en zelfs België plat.
Horizons verschijnt op 19 juni via Napalm Records.

The explosive quintet manages to perform a tightrope act between scene solidarity and the constant motivation to conquer new musical horizons: With their newest offering, Beyond The Black prepares their powerful manifesto of self-confidence and leaving the “Misery” of the past behind. The track takes its listeners into a wide melodic range between melodic mellifluousness and uncompromising energetic rock and metal fragments.
Along with an artful, moody conceptualized visual, BTB defeats the demons of the past and enters another spectra of their musical identity. Jennifer Haben’s remarkable and striking vocals underline her standing as a powerful frontwoman and hit the listener’s senses with full force. .
“Misery” presents one first sparkle of the manifold facets off the upcoming album: With this omen to their upcoming album, BTB are remaining and reinventing themselves at the same time. This is a multi-layered, metallic offering, proving their standing in the scene! Jennifer Haben on the new album:
“With 2019 having been the biggest year in our career as a band so far, we were thrilled and anxious to get back to the studio and start writing again – not just to make up to the fast and amazing development that has happened in the band since our last album, but to pin this development down also musically for everyone to hear and see. Hørizøns is unmistakably a BTB album, but with so many new facets and personality adding up to the classic BTB ID that make it a true band-album. For us this has definitely been a walk on the tightrope and we feel to have it accomplished to its fullest. Without beating around the bush, we can say that we're extremely proud and confident that Hørizøns is the best BTB album to date.“
