Verlorener (Dååth, ex-Chimaira) Premiere “Devil In The Room”


Guitarist Emil Werstler‘s (Dååth, ex-Chimaira) new project Verlorener has launched its first single below. The song is titled “Devil In The Room” and Werstler had the following to say of it:

“The proclaimed idea of our current musical climate as being ‘impossible’ has led to the creation of safe music with a lack of depth in narrative. The creation of this record was inspired by my general lack of interest towards what music has become. It seems to be more about the social currency of just being involved, not creating something new.

The debut track is entitled ‘Devil In The Room‘ and is heavily influenced by the harmony of Manouche Jazz and late 80’s era Depeche Mode. It was the final song written for the record and features a cello trio over beats with a solid guitar performance through out. Although the song is unique instrumentally, ‘Devil In The Room‘ is an accurate depiction of the record’s sound as a whole.”

Speaking furthermore of his plans for the project, he offered:

“There will be live shows starting in April and beyond. Aside from performing the music on the record, there will be a fair amount of improvisation to keep things less conventional than a run of the mill rock show. The band I have chosen is integral to the sound and will represent the music easily as I feel they are the best in the world at what they do.”

Fans crowdfunded $14,883 USD through Indiegogo for the project, which features production and mixing by Mark Lewis (The Black Dahlia Murder, Cannibal Corpse) and more. An April 06th release date has been set for Verlorener‘s debut album.
