“The Rise Of Chaos is something I have been thinking about often. Wherever we go – there is some hidden as well as some visible destruction and it kind of changes the world we know. What was there today – can be gone tomorrow and it’s somehow irritating, because it happens on so many levels and no one knows what comes next. The cover portrays our last stage set-up – but now clearly “destroyed” – like… after a catastrophe”, explains Wolf Hoffmann.

The cover artwork of the new record was created by the Hungarian artist Gyula Havancsák.

Watch ‘The Rise Of Chaos’, which was shot in Nashville’s famous rehearsal centre Soundcheck – the video consists of 81,127 still images that were later transformed into video sequences: https://youtu.be/tFqFYHFNeCc

Listen to the track ‘Koolaid’ https://youtu.be/5XqlQWaqFKY

Wolf commented on the track: “‘Koolaid’ is a well known flavoured drink and has been mixed with Cyanid by a cult leader who made his congregation drink it: men, women & children. All so everybody could get to heaven. Since then, the phrase ‘drinking the Kool-Aid’ refers to a person or group holding an unquestioned belief, argument, or philosophy without critical examination. That common fact, that people believe everything, when sold right, has intrigued me all my life. For me, being critical and alert all the time, is the key to every decision one makes. That is the main message!”
