Featuring medieval metal masters TANZWUT, industrial dark rock and metal act SCHATTENMANN has released a stunning cover version of "Komet", originally performed by German rap artist Apache 207 and music icon Udo Lindenberg! By now ranking as one of the most sucessful German singles to date, there has never been such a version of the track yet. SCHATTENMANN and TANZWUT managed to add their very own, unique touch to "Komet".

"I grew up in the former GDR", TANZWUT frontman Teufel comments. "Udo Lindenberg and Rio Reiser was the first German rock music I heard from the West in the late 1970s. It has had a huge impact on me to this day. It is an incredible experience for me to interpret this song together with Schattenmann."

SCHATTENMANN frontman Frank Herzig adds: "Komet is an incredibly great song, with very emotional lyrics and a deep message for me. It was a beautiful musical journey and an honor to do this metal cover with Tanzwut. I still get goosebumps when I think about hearing the chorus finished for the first time and how our two voices harmonize together."

Their cover version of "Komet" is now available on all digital services at:, a music video is now premiering here:

In the summer of 2023, SCHATTENMANN released their chart-topping, fourth studio album, Día de Muertos, via AFM Records. With a phenomenal #10, it marked the band's highest chart entry in the German album charts to date.

With their unique sound and profound music, SCHATTENMANN has become one of the most promising bands in the German metal scene. Chaos, the band's 2021-album, has already seen them unmistakably showcase: SCHATTENMANN's sound became heavier, more metallic, more multifaceted and uncompromising in terms of content. "We wish, that our fans are touched by our music and take something out of it for themselves personally," Herzig recently said. "We want to arouse emotions, from good mood to anger, but at the same time it can also be melancholic or thoughtful."

With Día de Muertos, SCHATTENMANN has purposefully expanded their sound to include modern and enthralling elements through the influences of metal and industrial, and their new record won't make any exceptions. The album promises to take dark rock and metal enthusiasts on an even more intense journey and solidify their already strong presence in the world of heavy music!
