Der Himmel Über Berlin is a band coming from the very north-east of Italy whose name explicitly reveals their attraction to middle-european sonority and atmosphere even though their lyrics are in english. Their sound takes us to postpunk based on the love to bands such as Bauhaus, Joy Division and The Sisters Of Mercy, but with a contemporary twist, which makes them easily placed on the musical map and keeps them original nevertheless.
In 2012 Der Himmel release their first studio album "Memories Never Fade". After a radical change in their line up they record a live album in Milano's historical Shelter Club in November of 2013, a natural consequence of extensive touring in Italy, Switzerland, Germany, Austria and Czech Republic. With two official videos under their belt Der Himmel Über Berlin have just released their second studio album "Shadowdancers" in 2014 and shared stages with bands such as Spiritual Front, Tying Tiffany, Diaframma,
She Past Away, Soror Dolorosa, Red Lorry Yellow Lorry and more.
In 2015 the band decided, to record their new EP "Emesys" and to release it in cooperation with Cold Insanity Music on November 6th 2015. The EP features 5 brand new tracks, which all keep the outstanding quality of their former albums. Driving drums, thick bass lines, swirling guitars and passionate vocals taking old school friends onto a gloomy journey full of elaborated melancholy.
