Biography:Neue Deutsche Härte band Stahlmann were founded in 2008 in Göttingen by singer Mart and guitarist Alex, who were then joined by guitarist Tobi.
The band, which combines industrial metal in the vein of Rammstein with electro beats and some gothic influences, released its debut EP, "Herzschlag", in 2009 and went on to tour aided by a live bassist and a live drummer with metal and medieval rock bands such as In Extremo, Saltatio Mortis, and Doro -- with a live show that had all the musicians painted in silver and wearing black clothes.
Their self-titled debut album was released in September 2010 featuring the single "Hass Mich...Lieb Mich", and the band toured Germany, Austria, and Switzerland as the opening act for Eisbrecher the same month.
Their second album, "Quecksilber", which featured more electro elements than its predecessor, was released in January 2012 and entered the German album charts at number 39. Third album "Adamant" comes in April 2013.
Mart and his band return with their brand new album "CO2" and follow the course of Stahlmann. Beside their unique look which quickly became a trademark Stahlmann also present their best songwriting and arrangements on "CO2" so far. It is not too different from their previous works, but it shows a matured band that is able to put together an album full of hits. In addition to the typical powerful musical style, catchy lyrics and Marts deep, distinctive voice, you can also find electrical and dubstep elements that will make the audience dance in the clubs again.
