Founded in 2007, German heavy metal band Kissin’ Dynamite have made more than a name for themselves on the scene: With six studio albums and various chart entries, the band have established their trademark style – characterized by a modern, massive hymns and catchy hooks. paired with an 80s stadium rock attitude and a quirky look. Now the five musicians are ready to release their debut album on Napalm Records, Not The End Of The Road, and usher in heavy metal in 2022.
The new studio album was produced, recorded and mixed by singer Hannes Braun (Südland Music) himself, who has also worked with bands like Santiano, The Kelly Family and Beyond The Black. Mastering was done by Grammy-winning producer Jacob Hansen at Hansen Studios, known for his work with bands like Volbeat and many more.
Ande Braun on the new album: “Not The End Of The Road is an album that accurately describes our experiences as a band since Ecstasy 2018. First of all, we highlight with songs like “Not The End Of The Road” , “What Goes Up”, “Yoko Ono” and “Only The Dead”: we’re in, we’re pulling ourselves together and we want to reach rock Olympus! Songs like “Coming Home”, “Gone For Good” and “Les scars,” on the other hand, deals with real feelings like loneliness, homesickness, and sadness, which are also part of life.”
Hannes Braun adds: “With Ecstasy, we had already made no compromises and just wanted to compose music that speaks about us. Not The End Of The Road picks up perfectly here.”
With Not The End Of The Road, Kissin’ Dynamite has set a new milestone in its successful discography: in the style of power metal on the guitar, the melody of the intro and the title track “Not The End Of The Road “prepares the listener for a thrilling road ahead. journey and new anthems straight out of the heart of the Kissin’ Dynamite universe. Crusher “What Goes Up” takes its listener into some truly spectacular stadium-shaking soundscapes and convinces with Aerosmith-esque guitar attacks and an anthemic hook. But Kissin’ Dynamite isn’t afraid to show off its softer side either, as heard on delightfully quiet tracks like “Good Life” and “Gone For Good” – not only showcasing the almost quiet keys that permeate the melodies, but also showcasing the softer side of Braun’s vocal repertoire. While tracks like “No One Dies A Virgin” and “Yoko Ono” epitomize catchy party anthems, headliners “Coming Home” and “Defeat It” underscore their stadium rock origins without being pigeonholed. “Voodoo Spell” manifests the variety of the band and their different influences – starting with strong elements of dark rock, the song becomes an opus that easily rivals the biggest giants of the stadium. The album’s closest, “Scars,” proves once again that Kissin’ Dynamite can reach the depths and showcase lyrical vulnerability – an awe-inspiring ending that screams to be performed live.
