Powerful and at once tremendously melodical, both athmospherical and full of driving dynamics, cleverly devised and still one hundred per cent handmade – ARILYN are all this and even more. Since their foundation in 2000, the four guys from the Palatinate region in Germany have always considered alleged opposites as challenges that are to be playfully mastered. After their debut album “Tomorrow Never Comes” – which in 2002 had instantly stirred sensation even beyond their home country – and the critically acclaimed follow-up “Virtual Reality” (2005), the art rockers from Ludwighafen finally deliver again. In May, their third opus “Alter Ego” will once more do justice to ARILYN’s characteristic blending of styles that keeps resisting any vapid pigeonholing. Anew, ARILYN invite listeners to a trip through a cosmos of highly melodic progressive rock where heavy, blues and other musical influences every now and then set new and unsuspected directions. Like a well-oiled machine, the band heads for diverse musical outposts once again – carried along by a magical carpet made of sometimes epically dense, sometimes playfully experimental keyboard sounds (Jürgen Mossgraber), fuelled by energetic guitar play (Jürgen Kaletta) as well as driving percussion work (Christof Doll) and decisively steered by singer and bass player Christian Külbs’ both characteristic and variable voice.
