With Glamour & Gloom the band has sculpted their own distinctive sound that will from now on be recognized as Tenside.
Hundreds of live shows in boiling underground clubs as well as the biggest Metal Festivals in Europe and Asia have of course added to this. Along with the strongest lineup in the 15 years history of the band Tenside thundering live sound has for the first time been faithfully captured in the studio. This can also be accredited to producer Christoph von Freydorf (Emil Bulls). Every single song on this album shows just what a slick team Tenside has become. Influenced by these times inbetween Glamour & Gloom, in which we live, Tenside is exploring life’s abyss – though they’d never give up without a fight. The sardonic Cannibals with its leaden riffs mirrors society’s indifference, The Last Anthem is a furious, tenacious opening song. As Above so Below is a hymn which embodies rebellion and feeds us thunder. The triumphant song Along with the Gods lets love conquer hate. Of course Tenside have gone through the hard school of metal just like all the other bands – many of whom they have shared stages with, such as: Bad Wolves, Trivium and most recently Killswitch Engage. Tenside have given Heavy Metal an upgrade and they’ve kicked it hard, to send it right into the 21st century.
