Megaherz are all set for the release of their new album, ‘Komet’, on February 23rd via Napalm Records.

Today, the video for the title track is premiering here on MetalTalk and here it is, for your enjoyment.

We also premiered ‘Vorgang auf’, the opening track from ‘Komet’ and in case you missed it the first time round, here it is again.

The band said about ‘Vorhang auf’:

“‘Vorhang auf’ (let the curtain rise) is a song about our lives, the stage, the whole energy we share with the audience. The pain, the intoxication, the strength. An incredulous feeling that makes everything else forgetten.

“Let’s dance together and let’s hope we don’t ever have to stop!”


The music videos come from the force of the video production company Video Ink and were shot in London.

‘Komet’ burns with full passion and never-ending energy and sees Megaherz as uncompromising and emotional as never before. After the previous releases, ‘Zombieland’ and ‘Erdwärts’, ‘Komet’ heralds in a compleatly new chapter of this stunning German band.
