AWAKENED BY SIRENS 2014 Video
DEADLOCK mastermind Sebastian Reichl about the re-recording of "Awakened By Sirens":
"Re-recording such a big Deadlock song is most definitely a forlorn hope. You can only go wrong and fuck up the whole thing completely. ;) For that reason we tried to create a new, for itself standing track, comparable to a remix. We wanted it to sound fresh and modern. Old and new listeners shouldn't be forced to deceide, they should love both versions... And the most important point for us was, is a metal band allowed to write a gospel part? Absolutely!!!"
Here some feedback on "The Re-Arrival" from bands one or the other should know:
Niklas Sundin, Dark Tranquillity:
"The new Deadlock songs are impressively dynamic and creative, especially "An Ocean's Monument" with its intricate riffing and unexpected choir arrangement. Thumbs up!"
Markus Vanhala, Omnium Gatherum / Insomnium:
"The Re-Arrival shows that Deadlock is the German flagship for modern metal and have been already for over a decade."
Linus Klausenitzer, Obscura:
"This album is a magnificent compilation of melodic, graceful, ass-kicking and modern songs - I love it!!"
Nikita Kamprad, Der Weg Einer Freiheit:
"With The Re-Arrival Deadlock have forged a heavy piece of metal decorated by filigreed melodies all around and shining with a flawless production!"
