Recently, about a year after the release of their last album, Das Elfte Gebot – which reached #3 in the German album charts – Feuerschwanz announced their new album, Memento Mori, set for release on New Year’s Eve 2021. Now, with their first single, “Untot im Drachenboot”, the pioneers of the German folk rock scene herald a triumphant overseas voyage into another legendary Feuerschwanz saga.
With echoing screams, “Untot im Drachenboot” calls a mighty army aboard a monstrous Viking ship. Wild guitar riffs and rousing violin solos put wind into the sails, while captain Feuerschwanz keeps hold of his crew with strong vocal power and deep growls. Filmed on a real Viking ship, FEUERSCHWANZ literally set sail in the video for “Untot im Drachenboot” and deliver another glorious anthem! The Franconians once again deliver a very strong music video, which offers a first taste of the upcoming album, Memento Mori.
“‘Untot im Drachenboot’ – Pirates of the Caribbean meets Vikings! Ancient Icelandic sagas tell the story of undead fighters, called Draugr, appearing from nowhere to roam and plunder the land. Now our captain is also cursed to eternal capture and gathers an army of undead warriors around him. Ready to fight for our future caper voyages, we want to board the stages of this world again as soon as possible with the wild hordes of our fans – and provide you with the matching soundtrack! Hoist the sails and join our army,” Feuerschwanz says about the new song.
A few days after album release, Feuerschwanz will go on an extended tour through Germany, Austria and Switzerland. They will be accompanied by fearless heavy metal kings Warkings
