Naturally, the eleven scars of the album title can only be applied to My Inner Burning’s band history to a certain extent, since the five musicians (Becky Gaber, vocals Torsten Sauerbrey, guitar Jörg Janssen, guitar & shouts Daniel Pietrzak, bass and Niklas Kahl, drums) from Germany’s Lower Saxony region haven’t fought that many battles in their budding career. Yet listening to their powerful metal, you can be certain that they have lots of triumphant victories ahead of them. My Inner Burning have the determination it takes, and they’re ready to present their second album, Eleven Scars (German release date: 25 March 2011, Europe: 27 March 2011) – a surprisingly mature offering which highlights an impressive development compared to their already exciting 2009 debut. “Eleven Scars sounds groovier and a little darker than My Inner Burning,” guitarist Torsten Sauerbrey explains. The reason? “Probably the many concerts we’ve played since, and the stronger influence of our vocalist Becky, who penned the occasionally rather sinister lyrics.”

The group’s musical direction shuns all clichés and half-baked trends. My Inner Burning consciously steer clear of that tried and tested ‘faster – harder – louder’ dictum, preferring to impress their audience with multi-faceted songs, deep-tuned guitars and great melodies which come across powerful and gentle at the same time. “We play unmistakable metal,” says Sauerbrey, “but we like to include gothic, rock and pop music elements.” Their listeners realise after a few bars that this dynamic sonic experience centres mainly on Becky Gaber. The instruments are oriented to the vocalist, the songs owe their forcefulness to her voice.

Eleven Scars sees Becky Gaber deliver eleven incisive stories – a clear reference to the album title – about broken friendship, unhappy love and other relationship dramas. “Eleven Scars is no concept album,” says Sauerbrey, “but the record’s lyrics definitely have a central theme.” Which is one of the reasons why this album sounds extremely homogeneous.

The dynamic sound of Eleven Scars, which was recorded at the Metal Sound studio in Osterode/Harz and mixed by Sauerbrey, adds further to the excellent impression. The guitarist is generally one of the group’s mainstays: he wrote the majority of the songs, and also took care of sound engineering and production. This extremely accomplished album is complemented by the excellent artwork courtesy of Hanover photographer Martin Huch, who has worked with stars such as the Scorpions, Heinz-Rudolf Kunze and BAP and created a particularly atmospheric cover motif which focuses on Becky Gaber. So top standards all the way for this band the (probably not entirely unwanted) scars are bound to arrive in due course.
