|"You cannot move away from your roots", Schwadorf says in the last Empyrium "Weiland" interview a laconic view on THE VISION BLEAK. The largest Horror theatre. Curtains up for Schwadorf and Konstanz, 2 circus entertainers emerge to catch the souls of the audience and to extend the fear and shock. Six-foot high towering guitars, a sawing melotron and voices from the grave honour the mind of horror as well as its representatives - first and foremost Max Schreck, John Carpenter, Friedrich Murnau or George Romero. Are ya ready to meet the reaper?
The second album "Carpathia" is an incomparable and sinister musical drama. Not without good reason have Konstanz and Schwadorf brought up the whole musical spectrum of their artistic careers so far. Even though the Shadow Philharmonics - who already provided the majestic textures on "The Deathship Has A New Captain" - have been increased, it is Death Metal that rises erratically above all: forceful, black riffs, heavyweight drums, full and many-facetted vocals ... Each track is vibrantly brimming with sheer intensity and energy.
