ANTITYPE bridge the gaps between grunge, Rage Against The Machine and Linkin Park whilst injecting their musical roots into the current zeitgeist.
Back from the muddy fields of Wacken Open Air, ANTITYPE don’t take a break. After their last release “Reduce, Reuse, Recycle”, which was successfully featured in several editorial playlists, the band sets sail for more thoughtful but by no means calmer shores.
“Pieces” is a powerful plea, asking us to search for hope amongst the chaos of the now. ANTITYPE has created a powerful anthem that will surely resonate with many, as they search for hope in a time of need.
The new single is the musical centrepiece of the “Trash Metal Project”, a cooperation between the world-famous Wacken Open Air and 17Ziele.de with the goal of raising awareness for the enormous amounts of trash generated in our society and also in the context of major music festivals.
To this end, ANTITYPE has teamed up with A Life Divided to create “Reduce Reuse Recycle”: A catchy modern metal track that, while addressing concerns about the fate of our planet, also calls for us not to give up the fight for a better future.
At this year’s Wacken festival, the song will also be featured in a wide series of promotional activities to spread the message of the “Trash Metal Project” with the help of 85.000 metalheads.
Listen to the highly acclaimed debut album “ETERNALLY”:
Over the summer 2022 the Hamburg/Berlin based new hope of alternative rock released 5 singles that showcased ANTITYPE’s great craftsmanship – picking the best moments from 90s and 2000s rock history and transforming them into fresh, modern ideas.
After the confident start with Coldplay’s “Higher Power”, which became a long-running airplay favourite on European radio stations, the band put pent-up anger and fear to music on “Freaking Me Out”, bursting with energy and drive. Followed by “Drowning” and “Reasons” and combining lyrics that venture deep below the emotional surface with a lethal punch of dirty rock production, ANTITYPE put a bold final point under their first season of releases and present their debut album “Eternally”.
This extraordinary band is made up of experienced road dogs, who don’t let up and who know very well that being in a rock band isn’t always all sunshine.
In addition to Rupert Keplinger, the multi-platinum songwriter, the band features the expressive vocals of lead singer Andreas Ohnhaus, drummer Jörn Schwarzburger, who has played more than 1500 shows with revered musicians such as Cher and JR Blackmore, and bassist Christian Hon Adameit, a bona fide onstage force of nature.
The combined result has that indefinable X-factor, the ammunition for the international airplay hits, the big bang of the future.
