VIVA is heading for the singles charts with two autobiographical songs. GENAU HIER and the B-side WIR SIND UNSER ZIEL captivate with the honest illustration of the band's ups and downs in the first five years of the band's history. From the brilliant start to discord and accusations. VIVA is still alive. Because in good times you have to celebrate every triumph extensively. In bad times, stand together loyally.

With "Herzjagd" the first single including video clip from the new TODSÜNDE album of their new same named album is released today.
With this, the Neue Deutsche Härte rockers give a first long-awaited foretaste of their second work, which will be released on June 16th, 2023.
"Herzjagd" is not only the title track of the new album - it clearly indicates where the guys want to go.
Directly into your hearts!

That the five guys from North Rhine-Westphalia are really worth every sin they have already proven with their debut album "Geistesgift". For their second studio album HERZJAGD, for which they brought producer Jonas Rabensteiner on board for the first time, the new team has managed to give the songs a completely new musical touch.

The bar is thus packed again 3 shelves higher and the fans can look forward to multi-faceted album that sounds more brute than ever.

With "Herz Eines Kriegers" the first single including video clip from the new RAUHBEIN album of the same name is released today.
With this, the folk metal high-flyers give a first long-awaited foretaste of their second work, which will be released on 7/7.

"Herz Eines Kriegers" is not only the title track of the work - it also sums up the band's core message. "The song describes everything RAUHBEIN is about," says Henry. "No matter what happens in life, get back up and keep going. Every one of us is down at one time or another. It's not bad to fall down - it's only bad not to get back up afterwards. So take heart and gather your courage and rise above! Anyone can do it!"

Henry knows what he's talking about. Many times in his life he has been at said ground. As the son of a working-class family, he grew up in meager circumstances and struggled through life with a wide variety of jobs. After a serious accident he is unable to work and has to rearrange his life completely.

In the video for "Herz Eines Kriegers" Henry can be seen in the midst of a magical initialization ritual - a druid casts his spell for a warrior who must face the challenges of life. The video was shot in the Werra-Meißner district. "Where exactly we can't reveal," Henry explains with a grin. "Because we built a fire there. If we say where we were, we'll get in trouble."

It's been one year since the Russian invaders started the war against Ukraine. With the orchestral version of their song VELYCH by Ukrainian hard rockers CrossChains, written in their native language, the band shares all the pain, horror and anger that are still their daily bread.

Because there is still war in their homeland. Innocent people are still being killed, cities bombed and families torn apart every day. Stop the war!
