Neue Deutsche Härte legends OOMPH! have released the captivating title track of their upcoming 14th album, Richter und Henker, out on September 8, 2023 via Napalm Records! Having charted at #1 on the Official German Album Charts with their successful previous album, Ritual (2019), and reaching over 25 million streams on their biggest hit “Augen Auf!”on Spotify, it is safe to say that both fans and critics are anxiously awaiting the new album, once again recorded entirely by the band themselves. The upcoming full-length kicks off a new era as it marks the first album with a new lineup, as CR4P and FLUX are joined by new vocalist DER SCHULZ.

Accompanied by an official music video, “Richter und Henker” captivates the listener with a mixture of hooky guitars and chanting vocals, while criticizing ignorant social movements. Countless massive international tours and festival appearances have paved the massively successful band’s way, and this November fans get the chance to catch OOMPH!’s new lineup live on tour.

Richter und Henker clearly proves that OOMPH! are back stronger than before with their new line up, charging straight forward! Album opener “Wem Die Stunde Schlägt” (en: For Whom The Bell Tolls) makes an immediate statement, propelled by a hefty dose of industrial metal. New wave influences are present on heavy and groovy anti-war anthem “Nur Ein Mensch” (en: Only A Human) – a future hit and strong sign against warmongering and empty slogans that force hatred and war. On “Wut” (Anger), OOMPH! is supported by none other than genre idol Joachim Witt.

Since their formation in 1989, OOMPH! has emerged as a highly influential band that has even inspired later Neue Deutsche Härte giants. With Richter und Henker, the Neue Deutsche Härte masters prove that they remain a leading force in the scene!
