STURMPERCHT: STÜRM INS LEBEN WILD HINEIN!
LP: Percht 02 [2004]
Ltd x 375


Stürm ins Leben wild hinein!
Der schlafende Wald
Das Blutes schwere Schuld
Nachtlied
Das verlorene Königreich
s'Hendl
Traumkampf
Der Lindwurm vom Tappenkar
Der Harung
Ewigkeit
Frisch auf zur Schlacht!
Chor der Toten

Released on the sub-label Percht to mothership, Steinklang Records, home to esoteric industrial cult-faves, Allerseelen, Sturmpercht entwines traditional folk with Bavarian myth and story into a guise of humourous and bombast performance. Track to track the listener is immersed in a dichotomous musical expedition, one that bounces gaily in tavern-like atmosphere to the pumping of accordion and mirthful lyric to somnolent caverns echoing in glacial rivulets where lucent will’o’wisp’s stir in rushes of swart recitation. Stretches of acoustic guitar brace the experimental tracks in familiar doleful neofolk fashion yet they do not cliché the album, rather serving to jumble further the disordered blend of styles; for fans of weird folkloric music with brushes of militaristic and ambient divagation.

Presented in a heavy weight high fidelity vinyl with foldout inlay habitating, “an original Salzburger Jagazaun box made of wood from the mysterious Untersberg”, and limited to an edition of 375 numbered copies.
