In the world of hard and heavy sounds and impressive theatrical live stage shows, Gothminister have earned themselves a reputation of being “one of the most iconic gothic/industrial metal acts”. Not only has their power-laden sound with its remarkable atmospheric density inspired their audiences since 1999, its eloquent fantasy stories have also transported them to uncharted territories.

Gothminister’s forthcoming studio offering, “Pandemonium II: The Battle Of The Underworlds”, is set to be unleashed on May 3rd, 2024 as limited clear vinyl and CD-Digipak via AFM Records. Taking up where its 2022 predecessor “Pandemonium” left off: The much-acclaimed album conquered the charts, made it to number one on the German Alternative Charts, and was voted as the ‘Album Of The Year 2022’ at the Dark Music Awards. Gothminister´s music videos for “Pandemonium” and “Demons” alone won stunning 19 film awards worldwide.

All of the new Gothminister album tracks were composed and written by Brem, who also produced the new release. The mix is courtesy of Henning Verlage (Unheilig, Eisbrecher) and Norwegian sound engineer Morten Lund, who has worked with Morten Harket (A-ha), among others, was in charge of the album mastering.

“The new material is faster and catchier than that of the predecessor album, but at the same time it sounds even more complex and modern, with more sophisticated vocal melodies and challenging breaks,” Brem reveals, “at the same time the driving beats for the dancefloor and the concept of ultra-low-sounding, tough guitar riffs are still present and link both recordings.”
