Hannes Grossmann (Alkaloid, Ex-Necrophagist, Etc.) Premieres New Song “The Sun Eaters”

Hannes Grossmann (Alkaloid, ex-Necrophagist, ex-Obscura) has premiered a new song titled “The Sun Eaters.“ The track, which was recorded with Danny Tunker (Alkaloid, ex-Aborted), Linus Klausenitzer (Alkaloid, ex-Obscura), and V. Santura (Dark Fortress, Triptykon), will appear on his new solo album “To Where The Light Retreats,“ which is set to be released on June 1. Grossmann commented:

“I am beyond thrilled to present the first song off my new album. It took a lot of work writing, recording and mixing it, but the effort paid off eventually. As a solo artist I aim to create fresh ideas which at the same time carry the spirit of a sound I started with Obscura back in 2009. But the most important thing for me is having fun with it. On this song and also on the rest of the album, I had some help from my very talented Alkaloid bandmates. It’s mind-boggling how Danny Tunker [Alkaloid guitarist] recreated the guitar solo I wrote almost note-by-note without even a sweat.”
