Berlin-based band Blutengel is a one-of-a-kind phenomenon. In less than a decade time, the
group headed by singer and mastermind Chris Pohl has become synonymous with a unique and
often imitated stylistic symbiosis of Gothic, Pop and electronic club music and has shaped
an entire genre.
Over the years, Blutengel have never stagnated, instead enhancing and developing their
trademark style with every new album. But even according to their own high standards, their
new long player Schwarzes Eis is nothing short of a revelation. Easily Blutengel's most
versatile and ambitious work to date, the group manages to fuse the best of all its
different creative periods and to cross borders without sacrificing its own identity.
There have always been two sides to the Blutengel-equation the club-compatible, rhythmic,
harder and the elegic, pompous and romantic side. Both poles have been driven to perfection
on Schwarzes Eis: the rhythmic tracks sound more minimal, danceable and dark and have
returned a bit of the cold, often slightly distorted feeling of the early days. The
emotional side has been interpreted in such dense and exciting sound fields that it has
become an absolutely intense experience. Songs like the charts-hitting single Dancing In The
Light are a picture-perfect example the catchy, dark sound of Blutengel has matured, but at
the same time feels as fresh and compact as it hasn't felt since Seelenschmerz.
Schwarzes Eis will be released as a double CD, with disc two containing the ambitious
instrumental work Behind The Mirror, a concept album with eight tracks. Especially for fans,
there will also be a very special limited edition: a lavish box set containing Schwarzes
Eis, Behind The Mirror and a full third album called Redemption, all CDs coming in separate
Redemption contains all other songs from the extremely creative recording sessions for
Schwarzes Eis that would not fit into the overall concept of the finished album none of the
usual filler tracks or remixes that tend to be used for spiffing up limited editions. This
extraordinary package is rounded off by a luxurious 44-page booklet. With Schwarzes Eis,
Blutengel have surpassed themselves!
This is the 320 Kbps WEB version from the second disc, Behind The Mirror as the 3 discs
