The Outside

The Outside


The Outside are a multicultural brow from South America, Turkey and Germany, offering a punch of melodic thrash metal in your face. We just signed a worldwide deal with SAOL, our debut album will be released 15 June 2012. The storm is coming, shitheads!


Bringing together a diverse mix of nationalities and musical backgrounds, The Outside comprises members from Chile, Turkey and Germany. Offering a compelling mélange of challenging, Progrock-influenced Melodic Thrash Metal, The Outside recorded their first Demo in 2009 live at Monongo studios, known for Rock'n'Roll acts like Motörhead. Their vision took root in the German Cosmopolitan Capital of Berlin, where they have performed with internationally recognized metal acts like Sodom and Vicious Rumors and sold hundreds of demo copies.

The Outside self-financed their first album and played a lot of successful clubshows in Germany. Putting a lot on the line, the band booked passage to South America to embark on „The Revolt is On Tour“ in Chile. The risk payed off: the crowds went crazy over The Outside's storm of sound: the pounding of Alberto Atalah's drums, Sergio Klein's razorsharp riffs, Halid Pestil's driving bass and the vocals of Roland B. Marx. The Outside’s aggressive melodic style and lyrics dealing with the failure of cultural metanarratives, the corrupting force of power and religion speaks directly to the souls of its audiences.

After signing a deal in Chile and now with SAOL / H'Art, The Outside proudly release their sophomore album via Metropolitan Edge in Europe and the USA.

Mixed and mastered by Igor Leiva at Atomic Noise Studio in Santiago, the outstanding cover artwork was painted by Claudio Bergamin, famed for working with artists like Rob Halford, Criminal, Paradox or Accept. The video clip of „The Stench“ was recorded and produced by Abysmo (Kreator, Vader, Therion) in Valparaiso, Chile.
