THRÄNENKIND Sign With Lifeforce RecordsWednesday, 12th June 2013
Germany’s Lifeforce Records have announced the signing of German post-metal band THRÄNENKIND. Comments Lifeforce Records owner Stefan Lüdicke:
“It is great to see there are still bands having something to say and believe in something in the sea of more and more similar sounding/ looking world of plastic-core, hardcore, punk and also metal has become over the past years. I’m very happy to welcome THRÄNENKIND on Lifeforce Records, a band that not only convinced me with their music, but also for what they stand for!”
Adds the band: “We are really happy to announce that we have signed with Lifeforce Records (HEAVEN SHALL BURN, TRIVIUM, WAR FROM A HARLOTS MOUTH, DEADLOCK). It is an honour for us to work together with such a renowned label.”
THRÄNENKIND’s music is a mixture of crustcore, post rock, post black metal and hardcore punk. The earlier recordings had more black metal and shoegaze influences, while the The Elk album contains a lot more crust and hardcore punk and offers also five completely instrumental post rock songs. The focus lies on creating atmosphere and melancholy.
THRÄNENKIND was founded in 2007 by Nathanael and Pesten. 2008 the first demo-cd was recorded, which got mainly positive reviews. 2009 the first live show was played. In 2010 the demo CD was re-released as an EP and shortly afterwards the split-CD with post black metal/post rock band Heretoir followed. In 2012 the first full-length album The Elk was recorded, which will be released in August 2013 via Lifeforce Records.
