The metalcore band Spacewalker from Schweinfurt (GER) announced the release of their
latest single "Tantalos". The song marks a significant step in the band's creative journey and lays the foundation for their upcoming album, which the band is currently working on.
"Tantalos" is a powerful declaration of the band's preference to remain authentic and not
get lost in the artificial glamour of the scene. The band members emphasise their
preference for allowing real life to flow into their music, rather than staging themselves
larger than life and always using the same genre-typical themes and sounds. With the
return of their original singer and founding member Fabian, they are sending a clear signal
of their musical integrity and saying goodbye to the clean vocals that can still be heard on
their debut album "The Legacy".
The sound of Spacewalker stands out from the crowd primarily due to its opulent guitar
melodies, which are skilfully subordinated to the haunting vocals. Spacewalker
encourages the listener to listen to the song several times in order
Lyrically, "Tantalos" deals with the madness of wanting to preserve time - a reflection on
holding on and the impossibility of controlling the passage of time. Inspired by the
punishment of Tantalus, the protagonist in the song will find no relief.
About the band:
Spacewalker was founded in Schweinfurt in 2016. In addition to their debut album "The
Legacy" (2019), the four musicians have now released five singles. Due to several line-up
changes, Spacewalker has already faced several forced breaks over the years. Now the
band consists of the hard core, has defined and found its sound and is ready to rise from a
local insider tip to national stardom in 2024.
