Presumably, only a few people in the back of beyond of former West Germany still believe that Peter Maffay actually wrote his hugely popular hit Über sieben Brücken. In fact, it was the breathtaking career of the East German band KARAT that started with this song, as well as the hymn König der Welt, precisely 40 years ago. Today, twelve million sold records and many more hits later, tracks such as Der Blaue Planet, Schwanenkönig and Jede Stunde have long since become classics of German rock and pop history. Before that, there were highs and lows, errors of judgement and blows of fate; however, never one thing: idleness. KARAT could long since have sat back, relaxed and rested on their laurels. Yet this incredibly successful band has done precisely the opposite – and continues to explore even more new directions with its latest production Labyrinth. Never before have these musicians worked on an album for this long. Never before has each and every single one of them contributed more. Of course, they are still and always will be KARAT; they still stand for that rare symbiosis of pop music with mass appeal as well as emotional depth. At the same time, they have definitely embraced the new century. Even though they do not deny a band history that spans more than 40 years with a single tone, their music still sounds more modern than ever today. However, with the song Alles fließt, they also go right back to the early days of KARAT, originally founded by some of the former members of the band Panta Rhei.
