The eclipsed check - The 150 greatest rock anthems of all time

Stomping, combative, polemic, ecstatic - rock anthems can present themselves in this way and in completely different forms of mood. In any case, they have always stood for the great emotional theatre in popular music. The eclipsed editorial team has brought together the 150 most exciting representatives of the hymn-like song from six decades and allowed showers to trickle down their backs several times. Welcome to the stage of larger-than-life gestures!

The dark alternative rockers around Justin Sullivan deliver another strong album with their new opus: a first soundtrack to the upcoming dark season.

NEW MODEL ARMY - Winter is approaching

As usual, Justin Sullivan gives the friendly and intelligent conversation partner in the Cologne hotel where he receives interviews. But already after two questions the 60 year old singer and guitarist has little desire to talk about the new record "Winter". He prefers to be echauffiert about his government, neoliberalism and right-wing populists. Which makes the conversation even more interesting.

eclipsed: The new album sounds more boisterous than its predecessor "Between Dog And Wolf", which was dominated by archaic drums. One step back?

Justin Sullivan: On the last album we tried to create that special sound. To me, the last few records sounded a little like we just played them down. We wanted an opulent studio production that wouldn't even try to capture the sound of our concerts. And the album sounds fantastic, but we didn't want to repeat the process.
