Album-Cover-The-Paradox

The Paradox is the sixth and undoubtedly most versatile album by thrashers ERADICATOR. It will be released on 20 September 2024 - the year of the band's 20th anniversary. Ten new songs deal lyrically with the contradictory nature of being human and present many musical facets, not only of thrash metal.

The Paradox bears the signature of ERADICATOR and shows their unbroken joy of playing. With this, the band has also made a name for itself live. Yet the four guys from Sauerland are not afraid to refine and develop their new compositions stylistically. ERADICATOR begin atmospherically on The Paradox with "Beyond The Shadow's Void": The track develops into a stomping headbanger before finally erupting into a thrash thunderstorm. In addition to death metal growls, including in the title track, "The Eleventh Hour (Ramble On)" is the first half-ballad in the band's repertoire. However, ERADICATOR have by no means forgotten how to swing the thrash bat, as they tirelessly prove with "Drown In Chaos", "Hell Smiles Back" and "Fake Dealer", among others.

The lyrical themes on The Paradox reflect the ambivalence and ambivalence of human behaviour and thought. "Perpetual Sacrifice" is about denigrating the weaker in order to make oneself feel greater and about the reversal between victim and offender. "When The Shooting Begins" is about the paradox of wanting to create peace through war - whereby the truth is usually one of the first victims after the outcry of the weapons. The concluding "Debris Of Demise" is a fictional tale of mankind having to evacuate the planet due to environmental destruction, but the saving ark being unable to leave orbit due to the large amount of space debris. Singer and guitarist Seba Stöber says, "We don't want to make a name for ourselves as moralisers, but rather reflect the issues and problems of our time. As artists, our task is also to encourage a discourse!"

Like its predecessor, the album was mixed and mastered by Sebastian "Seeb" Levermann (Orden Ogan, Asphyx, Brainstorm), who once again managed to give ERADICATOR an authentic sound. After 20 years, the four musicians know what they want to sound like and that's exactly how The Paradox sounds. The cover artwork is by Christian Bröhenhorst, as was the case with "Into Oblivion".

The Paradox will be released on 20 September 2024 via METALVILLE (Rough Trade) as a CD (digipack) and vinyl LP (Cream White). The band has also put together a limited edition (100 copies) box set containing the new album, several goodies and an exclusive live album.
