MEGAHERZ, one of the most influential industrial metal bands from Germany, enter the last round before releasing their upcoming full-length album, In Teufels Namen (out tomorrow, August 11, 2023, via Napalm Records) by unveiling its impressive title track. The release of their tenth studio album will be celebrated with a highlight show taking place on Saturday at the notable M’era Luna Festival.
With millions of views on YouTube and a #7 peak charting position garnered by their previous album, Komet (2018, Official German Album Charts), the industrial metal legends continue their legacy with the epic song “In Teufels Namen” (EN: “In the Devil’s Name”). The new album’s title track, “In Teufels Namen”, is nothing but direct – detailing their critique on the church as an institution. The single comes with a lyric video, accompanied by gripping visuals. Watch the video below, and make sure to catch MEGAHERZ on their European co-headline tour with Combichrist this fall!
MEGAHERZ on “In Teufels Namen”: “’In Teufels Namen’, it embodies everything this album stands for. A fat guitar riff, hard, cynical lyrics about the decay of our values and the double standards with which we justify each of our mistakes, and a brutal, epic chorus that resonates like an infernal echo of our downfall. We’re looking forward to presenting the first songs from our new album to a wide audience at M’era Luna. We’re already incredibly excited about your reactions and can’t wait for the joint tour with Combichrist to finally begin.”

Industrial metal pioneers MEGAHERZ pull no punches with In Teufels Namen!
Three decades into their career, MEGAHERZ have undoubtedly become one of the most important bands of Neue Deutsche Härte, which they proved with their critically acclaimed 2018 full-length, Komet – storming charts and peaking at #7 in Germany. With their newest offering, In Teufels Namen, MEGAHERZ raise their voice again and direct their gaze to where it hurts – criticizing conspiracy theories, religion and society as a whole, but also facing inner struggles and pain.
On “Der König Der Dummen” (EN: “The King Of The Fools”), one of the heaviest songs on the record, the quintet doesn’t mince words once again, commenting on conspiracy theorists in their tinfoil hats, while “Alles Arschlöcher” (EN: “All Assholes”) shows off synth-melodies, electronic influences and strong lyrics – criticizing the worst of society in trademark MEGAHERZ style. The hypnotizing track “Amnesie” (EN: “Amnesia”) is heavily built on electronic-inspired beats and melodies, while chanting anthem of the free spirited, “Freigeist”, features catchy synths and a sing-along chorus. On tracks like “Rabenherz” (EN: “Raven Heart”) the band show an emotional facet. “Menschenhasser” is a powerful, fast Neue Deutsche Härte track that eases into the breather “Ich Hasse (Epilog)” (EN: “I Hate (Epilogue)”), featuring emotional keys, before the empowering “Auf dem Weg zur Sonne” (EN: “On My Way To The Sun”) showcases their vulnerable side before closing the album. Overall, In Teufels Namen is an energetic ride providing the listener with pure industrial metal at its best!
MEGAHERZ on their new album: “We are happy to finally release our new album, In Teufels Namen, and it hits with full force! In Teufels Namen is an album steeped in dark themes and strong emotions. We went deep into the abyss of human nature and the result is songs that powerfully and uncompromisingly unleash an energy that will sweep you away.”
