Amnistia are back with third longplayer

– english version below –

Amnistia kehren mit ihrem dritten Longplayer zurück

Die Leipziger Elektronik-Band AMNISTIA ist vom Duo (Stefan Schütz / Tino Claus) zum Trio gewachsen. Der bisherige Live- Keyboarder Jan Moritz wurde während der Produktion des dritten Albums “Egotrap” zum festen Mitglied von AMNISTIA.

Die Produktion des lang erwarteten dritten Albums “Egotrap” dauerte fast drei Jahre. Die Amnistianer erfuhren währenddessen einschneidende Erlebnisse, welche sich in den neuen Tracks wiederfinden. So ist “Day Of Birth” beispielsweise eine Hommage an Stefan Schütz Erstgeborenen. Ursprünglich als Instrumental konzipiert, fügte Boris May von klangstabil nach ausgiebigen Brainstormings mit der Band Text und Gesang hinzu.
Und das ist nicht die einzige Zusammenarbeit, die auf dem neuen Album zu finden ist. Dem ebenfalls ursprünglich als Instrumental ausgerichteten Track “Absolute Nothingness” lieh Carsten Jacek von [:SITD:] seine Stimme.

Natürlich ist neben den Gastvokalisten auch die Stammstimme Amnistias ausgiebig zu hören: Sänger Tino Claus wütet, trauert, fleht und klagt in seinen gesellschaftskritischen Texten an. Musikalisch werden die beliebten knackigen Basslinien, dicken Klangteppiche und die viel gelobte Drum- und Snare- Arbeit von Breakbeats, Glitches und Vocodern ergänzt.

Abgerundet wird das Package mit einer vollgepackten Bonus-CD mit interessanten Remixen von Plastic Noise Experience, Rotersand, Dupont, amGod, Accessory und Daniel Myer (Haujobb / Destroid).

Amnistia are back with third longplayer

Leipzig (Germany) based electronic band Amnistia was founded in 2003 by Stefan Schœtz and Tino Claus. In 2010 during the production of the 3rd album “egotrap” former live member Jan Moritz joined Amnistia as a full member.

The name Amnistia is both the program and a philosophy. In many languages it means amnesty. Amnistia releases their band-members from inactivity, provides freedom for creativity, it is an outlet, and their work is a verdict that their minds have transformed into sound.

The production of the long awaited third album “egotrap” took nearly 3 years. During this time the Amnistians had formative experiences that found their way onto the new tracks. For example “day of birth” is an hommage to Stefan Schötz’s first born child. Although it was constructed as an instrumental track, Boris May from Klangstabil added lyrics and vocals after intensive brainstorming with the band.
And this is not the only cooperation that can be found on the new album. Carsten Jacek from [:SITD:] lent his vocals to “Absolute nothingness”, originally an instrumental track as well. Then something completely new happened: the industrial beats of Amnistia and
Carstens unique voice melted into a perfect symbiosis. The main voice of Amnistia is there too of course – singer Tino Claus rages, mourns, begs and accuses with his critical lyrics.

Musically you can hear the well known crisp bass- lines, dense soundscapes and the solid drum- and snare-work; all of this is complemented by breakbeats, glitches and vocoders. The package is rounded off by a full bonus-CD of remixes.
Big names like Plastic Noise Experience, Rotersand, Dupont, amGod, Accessory and Daniel Myer (Haujobb / Destroid) deliver great club tracks.

The brilliant mastering was done by Krischan Wesenberg (Rotersand, Straftanz).
