Das Elfte Gebot (german: the eleventh commandment), the brand new album by German medieval rock masters FEUERSCHWANZ, has landed on #3 of the official German album charts. This marks the band's highest charting album in history.

Says the band: “We can barely find the right words to describe this - it’s the biggest success in our history! It was an epic battle against all odds - still we thank YOU - the hordes of battle dwarves, shield maidens and mead warriors from all around the world who heeded our call and spread Das Elfte Gebot despite these dark times. So raise your horns, roll the barrels and ignite those fires - we victoriously return from the battlefield that is an album release. We’ll think of you when drinking excessively tonight - promised. May we see you again soon - united under the dragon banner!”

Napalm Records owner Markus Riedler adds: FEUERSCHWANZ are celebrating their highest chart entry in their history! They simply know how to entertain people with their medieval rock like no other band. Their packed live gigs are just the perfect entertainment while presenting either thoughtful or humorous songs in an utterly playful way! FEUERSCHWANZ have made it to the top! It’s crystal clear, FEUERSCHWANZ are the eleventh commandment!”

Das Elfte Gebot was released on June 26 and also includes the bonus cover album Die Sieben Todsünden (except for the CD Jewel Case Version) containing seven cover versions of songs by internationally acclaimed artists like Seeed and Ed Sheeran but also Rammstein, Powerwolf and Sabaton.

To celebrate the release, the band had performed an exclusive online open air at Burg Abenberg the same day. The recording can be vieweder here.

Das Elfte Gebot is the successor to 2018's Methämmer, which went straight to #6 of the German album charts.
