German gothic metallers Crematory have revealed more details about their upcoming album Infinity, to be released on January 29 2010. Here's what the official press release says:
"Lyrically and vocally Crematory use again English lyrics on Infinity but also two german tracks have made it on the album. The splitted vocals of Felix and Matthias, the extreme duel of clean vocals and deep growls surely was kept and even improved.
Crematory deliver hot fireworks of their catchy trademark tunes, topped with massive guitar riffing which turned out heavier and darker than on their previous albums. Gothic-Thrash-Metal is exactly the right description for this new masterpiece.
A cover tune can never beat the original - Crematory know that too but they already proved quality versions of Sisters Of Mercy's "Temple of Love" and Metallica's "One" in the past which undoubtly have their own characteristic sound.
Crematory will release their new album, "Pray", on February 1 via Massacre Records. The CD was produced by the band itself at the Kohlekeller Studios with additional assistance from longtime collaborator Christian "Kohle" Kohlmannslehner. For more album details, head to here.
The album's title track, 'Pray', is available on streaming at this location.

The production again was taken care of Crematory themselves in the Kohlekeller Studios with the assistance of producer Christian "Kohle" Kohlmannslehner being the bands' long time companion since "Revolution" and "Klagebilder". A dynamic and massive sound of international standard is guaranteed!
The German tour under the motto "Pray Over Germany" starts in May 2008. In the summer the band will play some festivals all over Europe and a tour in various, selected countries will follow during autumn and winter 2008.
German Gothic Metal band Crematory have posted the following message on their website:
"Crematory have started to write new songs in February and the new studio album with working title *Gothic Metal* is set for a January 2008 release.
Lyrics and singing wise the songs are supposed to have a darker vibe, although the separation between Felix and Matze with the dark and the cleaner vocals will be retained. The album will have English lyrics, but the appearance of a German track finding its way on the record is not impossible.
Musically it will be a treat to the ears with the familiar catchy melodies, paired with massive guitar riffs, even more brutal and darker than in the past.
With the keyboards the sound will be like in the earlier days and orchestral arrangements will be integrated. Moving away from the technoid samples and analogue sounds, going more in the direction of the early days with strings and choirs.
Children Of Bodom, Rotten Sound and Crematory are among the newly confirmed bands for the the With Full Force festival, set to take place June 29 - July 1 at Flugplatz Roitzschjora in Löbnitz, Germany.
The festival billing is shaping up as follows (in alphabetical order):
Children Of Bodom
Peter Pan Speedrock
Crematory will release a new album called "Klagebilder" on August 4th.
Massacre Records have posted the following message :
German gothic metal leaders Crematory have returned to their roots signing with Massacre, who have also already released their first four albums. The new album "Klagebilder" will be released on August 4th and will be available as limited Digipak, jewel case CD and big-sized box set including a bonus CD!
German melodic gothic metal band CREMATORY, who split up in 2001 after a successful, decade-long career, have been forced to postpone the release date of their much-anticipated comeback album, "Revolution", after keyboardist Katrin Goger gave birth to her daughter two weeks prior to the expected due date. As a result, the band have halted the recording sessions for the new album and the CD's previously announced release date (March 1, 2004) will not be kept, according to an official press release.
However, since more than half of the album is already finished, CREMATORY have decided to release a single in advance on the originally scheduled album — a little consolation for the fans. The CD will contain the single- and album-version of "Greed", a cover version of METALLICA's "One" and a ballad named "Farewell Letter" as well as the video clip for "Greed", which was wrapped only a few days before Katrin's daughter Janina was born.
