|The Hirsch Effekt Holon Agnosie Limited Vinyl 2LP Set + CD Album
The Hirsch Effekt have realized their philosophical dream of outdoing perimeters and pigeonholing. The band's musical spectrum, ranging from Hardcore, Chamber Music, Death
Metal, Jazz, Electronica, Pop to any other imaginable genre, is being completely deconstructed, and woven into a highly individualistic mash-up of its own. The trio, hailing from Hanover, Germany, seem eerily to embody the musical resonance chamber of the black hole.
The Hirsch Effekt release their long awaited third part of their Holon-trilogy, HOLON:AGNOSIE - meaning absence of knowledge or blindness of the soul. The saga begun with their 2010 debut album HOLON:HIBERNO and continued with the successor HOLON:ANAMNESIS (2012). In 2013, the readers of German alternative magazine VISIONS voted the group's second album under the 20 best albums of all time. It was the only German album that made it on the list, next to rock and metal classics like Nirvana's “Nevermind“, Tool's “Ænima“, The Mars Volta's “De-Loused In The Comatorium“ or Rage Against The Machine's self-titled album. Even Math- & Hardcore giants, The Dillinger Escape Plan, got hold of The Hirsch Effekt and took the band on tour, twice in a row.
For the sake of the third studio album, the trio once again collaborated with producers Max Trieder and Tim Tautorat (The Kooks, Manic Street Preachers, David Hasselhoff, Westernhagen). Recordings were completed in the legendary Hansa Studios and Emil-Berliner-Studios. The album displays the band's most contrasty work to date, at the same time being their shortest long player.
