Der Weg einer Freiheit are unleashing their complete forthcoming album, ”Finisterre”. The new masterpiece of the rising German black metal stars will be released this Friday, August 25th via Season of Mist Records.
Stament of the Frontman Nikita Kamprad about the new upcoming album and thier former band member and their new member:
“Today, we are finally able to present our full new album ”Finisterre” to you. We hope that you will enjoy it! However, we also need to let you know that our long-time guitarist Sascha decided to leave the band to pursue his own musical vision. Whenever possible, he will still be helping us out as a backliner. We thank Sascha for all his passion and dedication to this band and wish him the very best for his future endeavours! We take this opportunity to introduce our new guitarist Nico, who has already stepped in as live guitarist for some shows in 2011 and is now joining us full time. The past three gigs with him, including our release show at Summer Breeze, went great and we are more than ready to finally unleash ‘Finisterre’ and see you on tour in September and October!”
Statment of former guitarist Sascha:
“I am using this opportunity to give a big round of thanks to everyone who contributed to Der Weg einer Freiheit in any way and any form over the past six years and everyone who is going to do this in future, because I will remain with the band behind the stage whenever possible and you might see me jump around before a show to make sure that everything runs smoothly. This way I can keep working with my best friends. My decision to leave the stage was sure not an easy one and took me a long time, but I just have to move on in a musical sense and dedicate my creativity for my other band Fuck You And Die and another new metal band venture that is taking a huge part of my time, passion and care. If you would like to connect and catch up with me ,feel free to hit me up on the socials. Please enjoy ”Finisterre” as it is a magnificent piece of art and I believe in Nikita’s way of creating music. Thank you again and see you soon! Probably sooner than you might think. Sincerely, Sascha.”

The musical puzzle that adds up to become Der Weg einer Freiheit turns into something more complex – yet also clearer defined on the band’s fourth studio album, ”Finisterre”. The original pieces are still in play: the aggressive German directness akin to Endstille and a penchant for brooding melancholy as embodied by Imperium Dekadenz. Spiralling psychedelic moments comparable to Deafheaven and Wolves In The Throne Room also find their place, as well as a knack for majestic melodies that shows parallels in Swedish black metal spearheaded by Marduk and Dark Funeral.
Yet while Der Weg einer Freiheit are clearly progressing along the lines laid out by their previous acclaimed effort, ‘Stellar’, the band has found a way to make these pieces fit more seamlessly. ”Finisterre” flows together into a coherent picture that stresses the Germans’ unique approach and sound. This album marks the point where Der Weg einer Freiheit turn their various influences into a work entirely of their own expression despite never trying to cover up their roots. This impressive maturity has been reached through several stages.
The frontman was first heard on third full-length ”Stellar” (2015), which saw Der Weg einer Freiheit gaining traction across the pond as well as expanding their European base. Having performed along such diverse acts as Wolves In The Throne Room, Neaera, The Black Dahlia Murder, Amenra, Crippled Black Phoenix, and Downfall Of Gaia as well as playing prestigious festivals such as Graspop, Hellfest, Resurrection, Roadburn, Summer Breeze, and Wacken festival has honed the band’s songwriting skills to razor-sharp precision.
”Finisterre” clearly stands at the apex for now of the steep climb that Der Weg einer Freiheit have taken. This German star is finally shining in full black.
Der Weg einer Freiheit have previously announced a European headlining tour supported by French brothers in spirit, Regarde Les Hommes Tomber and the recently added Inter Arma.
