“Heavy, epic, balling hard rock in the glory of days gone by – the German ultras Voodoo Kiss prove to be a buck-strong newcomer 27 years after the band’s formation!”
METAL HAMMER (D), Björn Springorum
“Quality is timeless and Voodoo Kiss is proof of that – even more than a quarter of a century after their formation, the quartet shows how heavy rock should sound, driving, riff-oriented, dirty, but always melodic!”
ROCK IT (D), Hartl Grill
“A trip down 80’s- memory lane is a thrill with the sound of, VOODOO KISS!
Genuine passion never dies. I love it!”
SCREAM MAGAZINE (NO), Stig Ødegaard
“Long live the eighties, VOODOO KISS are Old School as Fuck!”
TANKARD/ROCK HARD (D), Buffo Schnädelbach
The circle is closed. Due to a lack of performance opportunities for his band VOODOO KISS, Achim Ostertag started the Summer Breeze Festival in Abtsgmünd more than 20 years ago. The festival grew to one of the most popular metal festivals in Europe, but the band was buried without a sound in 2000. But now what started more than 20 years ago will be completed: The self-titled debut album is to see the light of day on Aug. 19, 2022 via Reaper Entertainment.
One week before the release of the album the band presents their new single “The Prisoner” which also comes along with a brand new live video.
The song is now available on all streaming platforms and the video can be seen here: VOODOO KISS – The Prisoner (Official Video) – YouTube
Singer Gerrit Mutz comments:
“This video was shot at the first gig we did after a “little break” of close to a quarter of a century in Voodoo Kiss´s hometown of Aalen on July 15th this year.
You can see the fun we had on stage, it turned out pretty wild and spontaneous and the energy we shared with the crowd that night comes across even though of course nothing can beat the real deal and the live feeling! It sure is a testament to a historical resurgence and a glimpse of things to come.
We chose this song to be the second single because it´s slightly different to the rest of the album, being a little more on the melodic side and featuring the lead vocal talents of Steffi Stuber who usually sings the backing vocals but is given the spotlight here and rightly so because it was and is her favorite song on the record and so it was just logical to let her do the main vocals on here.
If you can, catch us live opening up this year’s mighty SUMMER BREEZE festival on August 16th. Rock on and keep the metal raging!“
The album will be released on CD and limited vinyl, and can be pre-ordered here: https://lnk.to/VoodooKiss
