Drescher to release new studio album “Steinfeld” on November 18th 2016

Drescher have already won over critics and fans alike with their highly acclaimed Thrash metal debut “Erntezeit”.
Now “Steinfeld” is the next big thing coming out of Austria. “Steinfeld” means “field of stones”, but is it as heavy as it sounds? Oh yes, it is! This is something really extraordinary.

Ushering in a new kind of music, a new style and a new experience Drescher’s music provides its listener with authentic Austrian metal in both language and sound. As long as they’ve been cranking their amplifiers, Drescher has produced genuine tunes driven by the music within.
