One-Man-Rockband Tom Spell – Melancholy meets Power 

German Progressive Rock | metallic.melancholic.symphonic

Brute guitars, driving bass and energetic drums meet warm strings, thundering horns and thrilling choirs.

Thus he creates the ideal stage for his melancholic lyrics and the unique, sometimes pleasantly calm, sometimes passionately powerful singing. The skillful combination of these elements generates his individualistic progressive rock, which is characterized by depth, complexity and versatility. Melancholy meets power! The whole life rages in a song. Opposites such as anger and love, sadness and energy, longing and fulfillment are musically united. With the claim to make music that moves because it is inspired by moving moments, Tom Spell takes the listener on a musical journey into his mesmerizing world between fantasy and reality.

Press release – First single „Mensch und Endlichkeit“

One-Man-Rockband Tom Spell releases first single & video „Mensch und Endlichkeit“

On June 15th, 2023, Tom Spell, One-Man-Rockband from Düsseldorf, Germany released his first single & video „Mensch und Endlichkeit“ (meaning Man and Finity) via the label Tom Spell Music. The track combines high energy drums, powerful guitars, atmospheric soundscapes and melodic orchestrations. But it’s the unique vocals and the thoughtful lyrics that make the difference. The energetic and multifaceted progressive rock song deals with the transience of man and his unsparing certainty about it. It confronts the listener with the question of whether the finitude of human life should ultimately be understood as mercy or suffering. Both lyrically and musically, the song delves into the grueling whirlpool of conflicting emotions that comes with grappling with the issue of life and death. At the end there is the realization that a permanent preoccupation with this probably unsolvable riddle must simply lead to despair, since the question cannot be answered. With orchestral bombast, Tom Spell turns away from the question and the associated fixation on future and past in the final chorus and finds true glory there, where it awaits us all – in the here and now, the actual moment.

Press release – Second single „Ewigkeit der Sterne“

One-Man-Rockband Tom Spell releases second single & lyric video „Ewigkeit der Sterne“

„Ewigkeit der Sterne“ (meaning Eternity of the Stars) is the second single released by German Progressive One-Man-Rockband Tom Spell on December, 15th 2023 via the common streaming platforms and online shops.

The song is a counterpart to the first single „Mensch und Endlichkeit“ which was about the transience of life and our unsparing certainty about it. „Ewigkeit der Sterne“ now turns away from our earthbound mortality and seeks dreamlike immortality in the infinite beauty of the cosmic gallery.

The progressive rock song stronger emphasizes metal elements featuring lots of double-bass drumming, sawing guitars and atmospheric soundscapes made of choirs, synths, trumpets and strings. The dynamic vocals range from emotional to powerful. They express pure amazement evoked by memories and fanatsies of overwhelming moments of one standing before a sea of stars, gazing into the nightsky in disbelief. How can something be so mighty and beautiful? This amazement comes with the feeling that we all are part of something greater without knowing it.

Press release – Third single „Leid der Liebe“

One-Man-Rockband Tom Spell releases third single & lyric video „Leid der Liebe“

„Leid der Liebe“ (meaning Suffering of Love) is the third single released by German Progressive One-Man-Rockband Tom Spell on February, 15th 2024 via the common streaming platforms and online shops. 

The song is about the transience of love and all the suffering that comes with it. It’s an enthralling soundtrack to love‘s devastating power, a musical painting of the smoldering ruins and darkness that it leaves behind. When everything around you, no matter how beautiful, is bound to change and fade, there is only one thing left – the unconditional love for yourself. 

This melancholic rock ballad fearures emotional vocals that range from vulnerable to furious, intense musical moments with powerful, beautifully sad melodies as well as rich orchestration with cello, piano, violins and horns. Dive deep into the suffering of love and find out that in the end there is still a light that will shine on in the darkness.

One-Man Rockband Tom Spell – Melancholie trifft Power

German Progressive-Rock | metallisch.melancholisch.symphonisch

Brachiale Gitarren, treibender Bass und energiegeladene Drums treffen auf warme Streicher, donnernde Hörner und mitreißende Chöre. Wenn der vielseitige Düsseldorfer Musiker Tom Spell die Grenzen von traditionellem Rock und Metal überschreitet, indem er den Sound dieser Genres auf Orchester-Instrumente und atmosphärische Soundscapes treffen lässt, begegnen sich musikalische Welten, die auf den ersten Blick so unterschiedlich sind und doch perfekt zueinander passen, schlicht weil ihnen dieselbe schrankenlose Leidenschaft innewohnt. Damit schafft er die ideale Bühne für seine melancholischen Lyrics und den einzigartigen, mal angenehm ruhigen, mal leidenschaftlich kraftvollen Gesang. Durch die gekonnte Verbindung dieser Elemente entsteht sein individualistischer Progressive Rock, der sich durch Tiefe, Komplexität und Vielseitigkeit auszeichnet. In einem Song tobt das ganze Leben. Gegensätze wie Wut und Liebe, Trauer und Energie, Sehnsucht und Erfüllung werden musikalisch vereint. Mit dem Anspruch, Musik zu machen, die bewegt, weil sie von bewegenden Momenten inspiriert ist, nimmt Tom Spell den Hörer mit auf eine musikalische Reise in seine faszinierende Welt zwischen Fantasie und Wirklichkeit. Wer sich hierauf einlässt, wird belohnt mit nachdenklichen Texten und emotionsgeladener Musik über Stärke und Schwäche, Träume und Sehnsucht, Nacht und Natur, Verlangen und Verlust.

Pressetext – Erste Single „Mensch und Endlichkeit“

One-Man Rockband Tom Spell veröffentlicht erste Single & Video „Mensch und Endlichkeit“

Am 15.06.2023 veröffentlichte der Düsseldorfer Musiker Tom Spell über das Label Tom Spell Music seine erste Single & Video „Mensch und Endlichkeit“. Der Track kombiniert high-energy Drums, kraftvolle Gitarren, atmosphärische Soundscapes und melodische Orchestrationen. Der energische und facettenreiche Progressive-Rock-Song behandelt die Vergänglichkeit des Menschen und dessen schonungslose Gewissheit hierüber. Er konfrontiert den Hörer mit der Frage, ob die Endlichkeit menschlichen Lebens letztlich als Gnade oder Leid zu begreifen ist. Sowohl lyrisch als auch musikalisch begibt sich der Song in den aufreibenden Strudel gegensätzlicher Gefühle, die eine Auseinandersetzungen mit dem Thema Leben und Tod mit sich bringt. Am Ende steht die Erkenntnis, dass eine dauerhafte Beschäftigung mit diesem wohl unlösbaren Rätsel schlicht zur Verzweiflung führen muss, da die Frage nicht beantwortet werden kann. Mit orchestralem Bombast wendet sich Tom Spell daher im finalen Refrain von der Fragestellung und der damit einhergehenden Fixierung auf Zukunft und Vergangenheit ab und findet die wahre Herrlichkeit dort, wo sie auf uns alle wartet – im Hier und Jetzt, dem tatsächlichen Augenblick.

Pressetext – Zweite Single „Ewigkeit der Sterne“

One-Man Rockband Tom Spell veröffentlicht zweite Single & Lyric Video „Ewigkeit der Sterne“

„Ewigkeit der Sterne“ ist die zweite Single der Düsseldorfer One-Man-Rockband Tom Spell, die am 15.12.2023 über die gängigen Streaming-Plattformen und Online Shops veröffentlicht wird.

Der Song ist ein Gegenstück zur ersten Single „Mensch und Endlichkeit“, in der es um die Endlichkeit des menschlichen Lebens und unsere schonungslose Gewissheit hierüber geht. „Ewigkeit der Sterne“ wendet sich nun von der irdischen Sterblichkeit ab und sucht traumhafte Unsterblichkeit in der unendlichen Schönheit der kosmischen Galerie.


Der Progressive-Rock-Song betont stärker Metal-Elemente durch viel Double-Bass-Drumming, sägende Gitarren und atmosphärische Klanglandschaften aus Chören, Synthesizer, Trompeten und Streichern. Der dynamische Gesang bewegt sich zwischen emotional und kraftvoll. Er drückt pures Staunen aus, hervorgerufen durch Erinnerungen und Fantasien an überwältigende Momente, in denen jemand vor einem Sternenmeer steht und ungläubig in den Nachthimmel blickt. Wie kann etwas so mächtig und schön sein? Dieses Staunen geht mit dem Gefühl einher, dass wir alle Teil von etwas Größerem sind, ohne es zu wissen.
