Beyond the Black

Beyond the Black is a German symphonic metal band from Mannheim originally consisting of Jennifer Haben (vocals), Nils Lesser (guitar), Christopher Hummels (guitar, vocals), Tobias Derer (drums), Erwin Schmidt (bass) and Michael Hauser (keyboard). As of August 2016, the members parted ways, with Haben planning on continuing the project with a new band whose member have not yet been confirmed. Formed one year earlier, their 2015 debut album “Songs of Love and Death” was a sleeper hit in their home country, with the band appearing as guest stars in several shows and festivals. One year later, their second album “Lost in Forever” was released and met with similar success.

Beyond the Black’s music is notably melodious and bombastically orchestral, yet hard due to the use of heavy guitar riffs. Whilst most of their songs feature only Haben’s clear vocals, Hummels provided screamo vocals on some of the tracks.
