Allerseelen - Dunkelgraue Lieder





Only 1 left in stock




Dunkelgraue Lieder contains all the songs from the first Sturmlieder incarnation in shortened digitally remastered versions as well as 7 tracks which didn’t appear on the original release. The original tracks with their “sturm und drang” attitude have been placed in the middle of the new album wrapped in the new ones which are more philosophical, melancholic and permeated with sad beauty. Sonically they are also more into krautpop/neofolk sounding of todays Allerseelen making a contrast to harsh and abrasive tunes from mid 90-es. As a result we have a very interesting reminiscence of the past with a kind of a comment from the present, some wise and soft look back on one’s young spiritual nietzschean extremities.

Some of the new tracks have been inspired by US black/folk/post metal band Agalloch which has a close spiritual connection with Allerseelen. Album’s precious artwork is based on the photos Gerhard made in 2010 in Oregon when he first met Agalloch at the same time as Icelandic volcano Eyjafjallajökull had its apocalyptic eruption. The same time some new tracks included in this new album has been composed and recorded using loops from Agalloch songs.
