The Hirsch Effect have released their new single ‘Torka’, the third track from the band’s new album ‘Kollaps’. A dark alt rock track covering a lot of musical ground from prog to industrial to metal.
” ‘Torka’ is another composition that was written by Ilja solely. Except for the drums and one guitar double part, all instruments were played by Ilja. The song’s root can be found in the Industrial-like electronic bass figure that is first introduced in the intro and later picked up by the bass guitar and even later by the guitars and drums. The ending is nothing less than a reprise of the interlude ‘Moment’, just as a band (instead of a strings) arrangement. The lyrics of the song tell a fictional story that is settled on the Easter Island and deals with the extinction of its inhabitants. The same story is later continued on the album’s title track ‘Kollaps’. ‘Torka’ is one of the more melancholic songs on the album.”
‘Kollaps’ follows the highly successful Eskapist album, which charted at #21 in Germany will be available as Box-Set, CD/LP+T-Shirt Bundle, CD, 2LP, stream and download.
