Today we come to you with some very sad news. Founding Deadlock member, dear friend and all around great personality Tobias Graf passed away at the age of 35. We can hardly express the sadness in our hearts and we wish his family all possible strength in these dark hours. Farewell Tobi and may you have a safe journey!
Lifeforce Records is proud to announce the signing of Swiss Shoegaze band LAST LEAF DOWN.
Founded in 2003 the band first started to play some sort of doom/dark metal with a strong Katatonia influence. 2007 marked a big turning point for LAST LEAF DOWN with singer and drummer leaving the band. Replacements have been found soon with Benjamin Schenk as the new vocalist and Patrick Hof as their new drummer. The change in the line-up also marked the change in the band’s sound away from Metal to their present direction, which reminds on Shoegaze-Bands from the 80s, but without sounding outdated.
Finnish alternative rock upcomers RED ELEVEN have revealed a video for their brand new track “Narrow Mind” off the band’s forthcoming album “Round II” to be released on September 5 (Sept. 16 in North America) via Lifeforce Records.

DEADLOCK mastermind Sebastian Reichl about the re-recording of “Awakened By Sirens”:
“Re-recording such a big Deadlock song is most definitely a forlorn hope. You can only go wrong and fuck up the whole thing completely. For that reason we tried to create a new, for itself standing track, comparable to a remix. We wanted it to sound fresh and modern. Old and new listeners shouldn’t be forced to deceide, they should love both versions… And the most important point for us was, is a metal band allowed to write a gospel part? Absolutely!!!”
