Thundering guitars, pounding beats, and blazing lyrics - OST+FRONT celebrate their own trademarks and impressively demonstrate their supremacy in the so-called "Neue Deutsche Härte". "Whoever wants OST+FRONT, shall get OST+FRONT. Always at the highest level. Always at the limit", vocalist Hermann Ostfront points the way forward. The band shows their concentrated strength on the upcoming album "Dein Helfer in der Not".
Hermann Ostfront says about the song 'Ikarus':
"It's about exploring the boundaries. How far can I go? I don't want to be determined by others anymore. I feel locked up. In the process of the album, I experienced in my direct environment how someone goes from adolescence to adulthood. That can be really exhausting for everyone involved. Neither fish nor fowl. However, I was much worse in that phase."
Furthermore, OST+FRONT makes a statement in these precarious times:
"This album is intended to take you by the hand and lift you up. We are OST+FRONT - your helper in need!"
Where other bands lose their bite over time, OST+FRONT show their teeth: "Dein Helfer in der Not" is pure adrenaline for the ever-growing fan base and a provocative work of art that will surely infuriate one or the other. Between morbid stories and a sharp observation of the society, the songs play with the expectations of the listeners and, despite all the catchiness, are no easy ride: "We are the mirror of the society. Human abysses, social grievances, sexual boundaries, we speak out everything. An exquisite documentary masterpiece," comments Hermann.
The upcoming Ost+Front album "Dein Helfer in der Not" was mixed and mastered at Fascination Street Studios in Sweden and will be released on July 31st as a CD, as a 2-CD Digipak including a bonus CD with additional tracks and remixes, as a limited 2-LP incl. download code as well as a limited box set including the Digipak, a flask, an emergency set, a face mask, a certificate of authenticity signed and hand-numbered by the band and another bonus CD with exclusive songs.
