Martial Apocalyptic Neofolk (Germany-2009)
This glorious and controversial group, founded in 1995 by the brilliant Josef Maria Klumb (Josef K) knows skillfully combining Martial Industrial Neofolk and Neoclassical music.
This album I consider the masterpiece of the band, surpassing all their previous work, leaving aside the experimental sound, and thus showing a musical maturity in a paper prepared reflecting the evolution of the band and positioned at the top of their trajectory.
They have the important collaboration of prominent guest musicians: Damiano Mercuri (Rose ROVIN E Amanti), Louis Carrier (INFESTATION), Troy Southgate (HERR), Andreas D. (PARZIVAL) and Sala Delle Colonne, and vocalists such as Anna D., Dmitrij Bablevskij, Natacha von Wynn (Swiss erotic star), Plastique, VAMP
Each song brings intensity, potential, dramatic, passionate emotion, in a torrent apocalyptic sound, martial industrial, combined with epic samplers, psychedelic passages, and melancholic neoclassical orchestral delicious sounds.
Some songs can be considered hymns, for its beauty and martial pomp.
The lyrics show a musical revelation about the 'Old Europe' between the emergence and disappearance, creation and destruction, between emancipation and slavery, revolt and revolution.
Germanium Metallicum, is an amazing work, from one of the most prominent german bands whose strength and greatness, demonstrates that poetry and old values can be merged in a masterly way with a potential insterpretative quality sound and bombastic. Outstanding album.
