Founded in 2011 in Münster/Germany, AUßERWELT released their debut
„Our Lives Out Of Balance“ in 2014. After they changed their drummer in
2016, new energy and creativity was bundled. The result are four songs that
form the album „Transitions“. AUßERWELT play post metal, that blurs the
genre boundaries in an unconvential way. They combine blast beats and
modern Black Metal elements with Postrock and Melodic Death/Doom
parts. The vocals offer a broad range of screams, growls and clear vocals
and are reminiscent of ISIS, DER WEG EINER FREIHEIT or HERETOIR.

The lyrical concept behind „Transitions“ deals with the presence and
absence of light in a metaphorical sense. Singer STEFAN SEEHÜTTER comments:
„Isolate The Sun“ is all about power, which can be both constructive and
destructive. Just like the sun. It is the source of all life, but it can also destroy
life mercilessly. „Vernal Equinox“ refers to the astronomical beginning
of spring, and thus, the return of light and life. A symbol of hope, because
in the cosmic cycle after every hard winter also comes a spring. „Lights“
describes the rise and decline of human civilization based on the lights to
be seen. From firelight to the electric light and back. The whole thing is not
the end, but the return to the childlike nature of man, freed from his responsibility
as a ruling being on earth. And finally „Aphotic“, the nasty brother
of „Lights“. Again, this song deals with the downfall of humanity, but now
without hope, ultimately and in absolute darkness.

„Transitions“ is mixed and mastered by Dennis Koehne (Sodom,
Melechesh, Tristania, Spin My Fate, etc). The production is a collaboration
between Koehne and Drummer Kris Lucas.
