Schattenmann suprises the scene with a brand new song “Menschenhasser”

The band’s latest, third studio album “Chaos” (2021, AFM Records) seen them unmistakably showcase: their music became heavier, more metallic, more multifaceted and uncompromising in terms of content. The German band, that will please fans of Rammstein, Oomph! and beyond, has taken the decisive third step and moved the essence of new songs with relentless consistency into the focus of an uncompromising sound. With “Chaos”, Schattenmann has purposefully expanded their sound to include modern and enthralling elements through the influences of metal and industrial.

Now, the band suprises the scene with a brand new song, entitled “Menschenhasser”. Says frontman Frank Herzig:

“Everyone knows that feeling, when everything becomes too much, and overwhelms you. It doesn’t matter whether it’s job-related or private, sometimes it’s simply enough and you want to be left alone. Switch off the world around you, be alone. That’s what Menschenhasser ( in english Humans Hater) is all about. We are no misanthropes, but sometimes too much is just too much and we mutate into the praised Menschenhasser. With this song, we just let out all our frustration and just let it go in those 3 minutes. The song is something like musical therapy for us, after which you just feel better.”

Schattenmann are currently touring with J.B.O., with a re-scheduled album release tour in Germany to follow in the Spring 2023. All upcoming Schattenmann live dates can be found here:
