With „Grenzgaenger“ and the appendant „Pavor Nocturnus“ AGRYPNIE are releasing their most challenging project so far. With almost two and a half hours of music and involving guests like J.J. from Harakiri For The Sky, Eviga from Dornenreich or Marcel from Nocte Obducta are testifying the enormous dimensions of this opus.
Yet unheard sounds from AGRYPNIE are merging to a homogeneous creation with raging moments but also sluggish elegiac tracks or entirely orchestral reinterpretations.
Just to suit the extent of this release both albums will be available as box edition containing high quality vinyl, a hardcover media book and a lot of extras.
Mastermind Torsten is now uncovering the first excerpts from „Grenzgaenger“. A seven minutes lasting trailer containing teasers for eight songs:
The album will be relased October 12th 2018 via Supreme Chaos Records.

Covers and details of upcoming AGRYPNIE albums revealed
With the departure for the European tour in October, AGRYPNIE will release two new albums entitled "Grenzgænger" and "Pavor Nocturnus".
Mastermind Torsten states: "There are no words to describe the feeling to finally share the details of the two new Releases "Grenzgænger" and "Pavor Nocturnus".
Without any doubt no other Releases in the history of Agrypnie was accompanied with such an huge amount of work and even some failures. Sometimes during the work for these albums I had this serious feeling, these releases will never see the light of this world. But it´s FINALLY done and I don´t have any words how proud I am.
"Grenzgænger" is so far the most personal Release I have ever written. In the last years I had to deal with the most darkest hours and personal demons. A lot of them are bond into this album. On the other hand, I went through all this mess and made it. This is an important part of this Release as well."
Both albums will be available in a heavy box version with two double vinyl records, a 2 CD mediabook, big poster flag and 8 special postcard sized art prints. Of course you can still get the albums separately as double vinyl in gatefold cover, digipak CD or as mediabook.
