We’d like to welcome our good friend and former part-time merch guy Nico as the new bassist for DER WEG EINER FREIHEIT! There is a close amicable relation between the band and him since several years now and after temporarily finishing the past year as a three-piece on stage we felt it was time to fill the vacant position. The first rehearsals with him went super smooth and we can’t wait to hit the stage with a full line-up again. Our new album is being scheduled at this very moment and new shows and festivals are being booked. Prepare yourself!
Nico comments: “After knowing the guys for some years now and being into their music since the first album it’s a huge honour for me to join the band as the new bassist. Since Nikita and I come from the same area in Germany we’ve built up a strong friendship over the years and I’m more than grateful for this chance. This means a new and exciting challenge for me and I’m ready to take it.”
At this point again we want to thank our former bassist Giuliano for his dedication and input over the past years, it won’t be forgotten. He even left some traces on the new album, you will find out in time!
The first show with Nico will be this Friday at Schlachthof Wiesbaden with Heaven Shall Burn and Deserted Fear. We’ll be playing a brandnew song from the upcoming album!

Everyone who saw us at the past three shows may have noticed there was someone missing on stage. Today we announce that we have parted ways with bassist Giuliano. The past five years have been quite a ride for all of us and we sincerely would like to thank him for his passion and commitment in the band. We wish him all the best for the future!
Here’s what Giuliano has to say:
“I apologize if you now feel disappointed by this. Your screams and horns have always sent warmth to my heart and they still do in my memories. Thank you.
Now that this chapter has ended I feel the strong urge to thank everybody who has ever supported me and the band in any way following their passion or profession; our trusty crew Oliver and Tilo, the wizards of sound and light who always did a splendid job making us sound and look better than we actually do; every band we have ever played a show or toured with and all these great people we have met on our way (I feel fortunate to be able to say that you are far too many to name everyone); and finally every person who keeps alive this thing called Metal that I love so much.
It’s been five years of joy but now the time has come where the way of freedom comes towards a bifurcation.
