THE HIRSCH EFFEKT Share New Single + Video – Palingenesis
German progressive metal trio The Hirsch Effekt have released their new single “Palingenesis”, along with a music video. The new track is the second single taken from their upcoming EP ‘Solitaer’, out August 26th, 2022 via Long Branch Records.
The Hirsch Effekt bassist Ilja John Lappin on PALINGENESIS:
“PALINGENESIS is my contribution to the SOLITAER EP, on which each band member wrote a song. It’s the memory of a path that I inevitably had to take. When life as we knew it suddenly came to a stop with the first lockdown of the COVID-19 pandemic, I was forced to confront a very dark place that I had mentally arrived at. A crisis of purpose, sealed by a cycle of loneliness and depression as well as the tireless and at the same time unstable routine of the previous years, unfolded with full force in a new, unknown surrounding. During this long period of isolation, I took a desperately needed break for myself. In able to stop. In able to understand who I actually had become over the years and where I had landed in life. PALINGENESIS is a hymn to the battle itself. To your own strength, of which you’re often sure you no longer have, especially when greater, darker clouds are gathering on the horizon once again. A hymn to the fight back to your own heartbeat.”
