The gothic metal band Canterra from Leipzig is an exciting symbiosis of rough sounds and enchanting softness – blending metal, goth and rockstyles in the smartest way and enthralling their live audiences with their overwhelming energy and catchy tunes. Canterra's exciting guitar sound is embedding front singer Korinna's unique, multifaceted voice while she is bringing gloomy as well as hopeful stories to life. None of their songs resembles another one. This variety might be the very core from which the typical Canterra sound originates, attracting more and more supporters recently.

In february 2016 Canterra released their long awaited debut album ‚First Escape‘. The production was supported by the Wacken Foundation and produced by Andy Schmidt (Disillusion). „First Escape“ has 12 canterranic jewels in store, all of them written by Canterra themselves. The songs comprise everything from true goth rock smashers to more complex metal tracks to delicate ballads. At the end of the record, a special bonus track in German is awaiting the listener – a song that is going to surprise connoisseurs of the goth scene and that definitely gives Canterra's debut album a very special accent to finish with.

The german dark rockers filled Tilo Wolff – mastermind and front singer of Lacrimosa and creative heart of the German gothic scene – with enthusiasm for their upcoming first record … which made Wolff invite Canterra to support Lacrimosa. So with their first album in the hands, Canterra immediately went on tour with the world's greatest gothic metal band. So Canterra are joining great names like Lacuna Coil or Gothminister. Watch out for them to come! And if this all would not be enough, in their First Escape year they played with great figures of the genre such as Xandria, Crematory, Beyond The Black and Unzucht.
The band is working on a new release for 2017, that should come out in the end of the year. more
