Our review for “Gladiator” can be found here.
Recently we did an interview with the guys of freaKINGS, about the upcoming album they had the following to say: ‘As “no way out” we recorded gladiator“ in our rehearsel room. Mixing and mastering is done by Christoph of Iguana-Studios in Germany. We don’t have a label contract. Gladiator ist self labeled :- ). The cover artwork was painted by Quirill, a Swiss artist and friend, according to our wishes, but the layout of the booklet is done by Simon. The sound has changed quite a lot since our last album, we developed, it’s more « thrash ».’
Read the entire interview here.
The band consists of: Simon Straumann – Drums, Toby Straumann – Bass, Jonathan Brutschin – Guitar & Vocals
