Info: Heldentod began in 2005 as an outlet for research into the little-known corners of 20th-Century history. While previous recordings whiplashed between the traditional and the experimental, Heldentod's latest album leaves behind its neofolk and martial-industrial roots to focus solely on electronics, but maintains the fundamental sense of composition found in earlier incarnations. Although now primarily influenced by death industrial and power electronics, Heldentod looks to create the most suitable expression of its key themes, including ghosts, ancestor worship, human sacrifice, neolithic fertility rites, Iron Age religion, mediaeval literature, unseen dimensions, inhuman intelligences, and all manner of Forteana.
add info: Powerful dark industrial/ambient recording (no PE detected). I have found this recent Cold Spring release fine and serious. Despite a slightly infantile theme choice the overall approach is convincing. Well-balanced, poignant and careful about rare details the album is old school in its core, hence - a treat for sore ears. Recommended.
