Feuerschwanz’s English speaking special album “Warriors” is out now

Author Benedetta Baldin - 3.5.2024

Feuerschwanz celebrate their 20th anniversary with an absolute novelty in the history of the band! The first album recorded entirely in English by the #1-charting German band, “Warriors”, will be released on May 3, 2024 via Napalm Records. In addition to ten well-known hits, newly arranged and performed in English, “Warriors” also presents a brand new song and a cover track. The band around founding member and singer Hauptmann Feuerschwanz, songwriter, singer and multi-instrumentalist Hodi, as well as Johanna on the violin, welcome top-class names as guests, such as Chris Harms (Lord Of The Lost), Francesco Cavalieri (Wind Rose), Dominum, Orden Ogan and Patty Gurdy. “Warriors” will be available in numerous, partly strictly limited formats.

Founded in 2004, Feuerschwanz have evolved over the years from their roots in comedic medieval folk rock into a band to be taken seriously, and are rightly regarded as one of the hottest acts on the scene. After they hit #1 on the Official German Album Charts for the first time with “Memento Mori” (2021), Germany’s hottest band managed to repeat that great success with their latest studio album “Fegefeuer” (2023). With premium slots at numerous festivals, such as co-headline slots at the legendary Wacken and Summer Breeze Open Airs, as well as abroad, including at Masters Of Rock and on the 70,000 Tons Of Metal cruise in the Caribbean, and an almost completely sold-out headlining tour, Feuerschwanz underlined their outstanding position all the more last year. Many dates of the upcoming big Fegefeuer headline tour in 2024 are already completely sold out. 

“Warriors” looks back on a remarkable track record of tireless work and is further proof that Feuerschwanz not only welcome challenges with open arms, but actively seek them out. Newly recorded – and for the first time ever in English – songs like “Highlander”“Das Elfte Gebot” (The Forgotten Commandment), “Memento Mori”“Untot im Drachenboot” (Death on the Dragonship), “Bastard of Asgard” and “Fegefeuer” (Purgatory) take on a whole new character, but still sound familiar in Feuerschwanz style. With “The Unholy Grail”Feuerschwanz surprise their fans with a brand new song and take them directly into a captivating world full of legends and heroic battles. The final track is a cover of the Assassin’s Creed classic “Valhalla Calling” by Miracle Of Sound, which fits perfectly into the overall work and discography of Feuerschwanz. “Warriors” is a new milestone in Feuerschwanz’s successful career, which only knows its way to the top!
