Beyond The Black
German Symphonic Metal shooting stars Beyond the Black look back on a stratospheric success story. Already their 2015 debut album hit like a bomb in their home country. “Songs Of Love And Death” besieged the German Top-15 for weeks and lead up to the band being awarded the Metal Hammer Award 2015 for “Best Debut”. Its successor “Lost In Forever” (2016) entered the German charts on #4 right away and paved ways for a huge tour from Germany over countries like UK, Russia or Japan.
Since the band’s live debut in 2014 they have played the world’s biggest Metal festival Wacken Open Air several times and toured as a support act for heavyweights such as Aerosmith, Korn, Scorpions, Saxon or Within Temptation.
In the course of album release number three (Heart Of the Hurricane”, German charts #5) Beyond the Black absolved their first own European Headline Tour in Fall 2019 consisting of over 20 shows in 10 countries – most of them sold out. But even before finishing their touring cycle in 2019 Beyond the Black got back to the studio to write record number four.
The highly anticipated “Horizons” was finally released on June 19th 2020, entered the German album charts on #3 (CH #6, AT #16, BE #53) and marks the band’s most successful album release to date. A fact, which Beyond the Black will celebrate on a huge Co-HeadlineTour through Europe in 2021 together with their Swedish Modern Melodic Metal mates in Amaranthe.
