Welcome to the second chapter of SPECKMANN PROJECT. The death metal legend returns to his now legendary and short-lived offshoot band! The result will be a new, eagerly awaited Speckmann Project, from which “Fiends Of Emptiness” is the first digital single and the title track.

Speckmann Project’s new album “Fiends Of Emptiness” will be released in the first half of 2022 via Emanzipation Productions.

A true pioneer of extreme metal, Paul Speckmann co-founded Master in 1983. A recording contract was eventually secured with Nuclear Blast and in 1989 Speckmann (vocals, bass) along with Chris Mittelbrun (guitar) and Bill Schmidt (drums) recorded their debut album in Solid Sound Studios in Chicago, but things didn’t go quite as planned and so the album was recorded again with a different line-up at Morrissound studios in Florida with the legendary producer Scott Burns, from the two recordings done for that album, the second one of them was released as Speckmann Project.

Three decades have passed, Paul Speckmann has turned into the death metal master himself, and now the time has come for a much-awaited Speckmann Project follow-up album, this time in collaboration with Swedish death metal-savant Rogga Johansson, known from Paganizer, Ribspreader, Revolting and a myriad of other bands. Line-up:
Paul Speckmann – vocals
Rogga Johansson – guitars, bass
Kjetil Lynghaug – lead guitars
Jon Rudin – drums
