Traumorgane: Vocals, guitars, bass guitar, synthesizer, brass, percussion 
Euer Gnaden: Bass guitar, drums, backing vocals

A first review of EBNE GRAUN



Cover art and release date for EBNE GRAUN revealed

The new album will be out on 3rd February 2017 on I, Voidhanger Records.

Here's the announcement of the lable:

Out February 3, 2017

Active since the early 2000’s, TODESSTOSS is the creature of Martin Lang, a German musician, poet and painter that has left a lasting mark on the metal underground with his eclectic style. Lang’s music is a reflection of his composite visual art and inventive poetry, a surrealistic and theatrical mise-en-scène, as disturbing and darkly bizarre as it is daring and provocative.
TODESSTOSS’ previous work on I, Voidhanger Records, “Hirngemeer” (2015), was a mind-bloggling, vicious tangle of cacophonous black metal, spooky doom, dark electro-rock and weird psychedelia, propelled by a cold and primitive drum-pulse. No less stylistically lunatic, the new album “Ebne Graun” (a play on words translatable to “The ‘orror Pla’n”) is probably even more hallucinatory and mysterious, certainly more epic and frightening in concept and scope. It features one single 46-minute long track, a majestic and dreary funeral dirge slowly carrying the listener through the barren lands beyond Existence.

With the help of Flesh Of L. (vocals) and Euer Gnaden (bass), for “Ebne Graun” Martin Lang has carved his most dreadful visions of keen insights and horror, where gigantic waves of black metal guitars first dilate reaching breathtaking emotional peaks, then deflate and crawl over the doomy pace of the rhythm section.
On the creepy cover photograph – that Lang shot by mere chance during Totensonntag, a German religious holiday celebrating the dead – a Grim Entity is clothed in an astral dress, its claws tightly holding a snake sceptre that slowly tries to feast on the last rays of life from a departed human being…

Is that our ultimate destiny? A larval existence in a grey domain of infinite nothing? TODESSTOSS explored such a terrifying anti-life dimension, and “Ebne Graun” is their testimony.

1. Ebne Graun (46:23)

Comes as jewel box housed in a cardboard slipcase. 12-page booklet with lyrics. Art by Martin Lang / Traumorgane.

Preview track coming soon

Find the label's announcement below:

TODESSTOSS "Hirngemeer" CD

Lead by German musician, poet and painter Martin Lang, TODESSTOSS (in German, “Deathblow”) have always been a trapdoor to weird places beyond our common, boring existences. They have walked through the 2000’s refusing musical stereotypes in favor of a surreal, lunatic and experimental dark metal language that with “Hirngemeer” - their 7th and best work to date - finds a perfect balance between the early days’ depressive black metal tendencies and the more psychotic nature of the last years’ offerings.

Spiritually not so distant from acts like Burzum, Bethlehem, Urfaust or Circle Of Ouroborus, TODESSTOSS use black metal, dark rock and electronic ambient like colors on big canvas, painting a hallucinating scenario of mental ruins, a theatrical stage where their nightmares and fears materialize to perform a tragedy of insanity and despair. It’s a Theatre of the Absurd, emphasized by anguishing screams, bizarre lyrics, and black metal riffs menacingly suspended in the air like clouds of locusts, attracted by the cold and primitive dark-wave pulse of the rhythm section.

“Hirngemeer”, a non-existing term made by the German words “Gehirn” (brain) and “Meer” (sea), is the spectacle of a mental collapse and decomposition; a barefoot walk on a carpet of shattered mirrors, each fragment reflecting distorted images of the self.

Available as a CD in jewel case housed in a cardboard slipcase. 20-page full color booklet. Visual art by Martin Lang, layout by Francesco Gemelli.


1. Verwehung (28:28)
2. Narbenkäfig (34:07)
3. Strom der Augenblicke (12:19)

Total running time 74:54


Martin's own boardgame in the works

Already have started to work on an own boardgame. This game will be of abstract nature, a kind of mix between Chess, Kamisado or maybe Barragoon. It's based on figures and for two players.
The game is now going through many tryouts and test games to fix the rules finally before thinking of production and distro aspects.

I need more players!: Any people interested in abstract board games in Dresden area who can imagine to participate in test games in the nearer future, get in touch!



Recordings of a planned Split release between Todesstoß and Venuspuls have begun.
Two new tracks of both projects will be presented.

Any dedicated label with an interest to release this in 2015 on seven or ten inch vinyl, don't hesitate to get in touch for a possible cooperation!
Compositions, lyrics and artwork are ready to be combined to a new expressive output.


New album for 2015 in preparation

With the line up of Euer Gnaden, Flesh of L. and me, Todesstoß is working on a new album, that is designated to be released in spring 2015. Its title will be "Hirngemeer" and present nearly 80 minutes of an epic, obscure surrealistic oeuvre. The songlist exists of three titles pushing boundaries of the possible and obvious. Though it will be something completely new, borrowings to "Sauglingshängwerk Aushilfsheins", "Menschenscheuche" and "Sehnsucht" may be audible.
More updates to be announced soon!
