Despite the yawn-worthy barrenness of festival fields and stages, the Franconian formation has inimitably managed to capture the magic of a live concert, twice – gifting fans an entertaining adventure full of hits and a huge dose of humor.
The virtual concert, Die letzte Schlacht, was originally released in January this year, and presents an adventurous ride through the discography of Feuerschwanz with the band itself as grandiose protagonists and storytellers. Topped by some great guest appearances, including Angus McFife (Gloryhammer), members of Saltatio Mortis and Patty Gurdy, this night to remember can now be experienced over and over again from the comfort of your own home. Secondly, Hauptmann Feuerschwanz and his entourage revisit their virtually released open air (11:O:A) from their last album, the chartbreaking Das Elfte Gebot (The eleventh commandment, 2020, GER #3), and deliver more than two hours of hits.
Die letzte Schlacht is an absolute must-have. May your drinking horns never be empty and the mead flow forever!
The Die letzte Schlacht album will be available digitally in North America!
