||Prophecy Productions signed the young american group TODESBONDEN.
"The concept for the band is to create music that is simple, emotionally moving, speaks from the heart and has echoes fromother time periods and other worlds" says Laurie Ann Haus, singer of TODESBONDEN. The versatile singer, however, doesn't like to rake her brain just to be able to categorize her music. She rather goes to various musical treasure chambers in search of deeply haunting and fascinating melodies. Inspired by her personal interests and a musical training covering numerous musical fields and guided by an extraordinarily audacious
intuition, Laurie Ann Haus combines influences from the Renaissance, World music, Celtic Folk, Mediaeval, sorrowful and intense (Doom) Metal sounds, and classicism to a unique variant of dark emotional music.
In terms of instruments, the vocal artist wouldn't mind a treasure chamber full of them, but even with the small means which the American trio had for the recording of their demo, the musicians were able to move small mountains and delight listeners all around the globe. The combination of dark, classic, heavy guitar riffs, emotional violins, atmospheric piano and percussion creates a fantastic framework for Laurie's boundless vocals that have earned her many comparisons to Lisa Gerrard.
