1 - SPIELBANN - DIE BALLADE VON DER "BLUTIGEN (BOX) - (CD) 
TRISOL


A pitch-black background. The thick thorn hedge creeps insurmountably upwards, framing the precious flowers in its own quite unique tender yet morbid manner, in order to protect the treasure in the centre: the rose heart. It gleams blood red. Sensuously, seductively and intensively, it draws you into its spell; insidiously, it lures its admirers into ruin. Its not so innocent as you might think at first glance. By now, delicate drops of blood are forming on the full petals, enabling you to suspect what sinister intention this rose is really pursuing. If you look more closely, it reveals its true face.That spine-chilling yet beautiful scenery describes the wonderful artwork for SPIELBANNs new escapade, and reveals a whole load of things about the latest disc from the charismatic gothic rock ensemble: Die Ballade von der "Blutigen Rose". This exceptional band have taken the widest variety of fairytales and stories, both known and unknown, and have reclothed them in their dark and sombre cosmos. They have been set to music in a special way, creating unusual perspectives and angles before they were finally poured into an individual, immensely compelling and fascinating mould. Ten stories have been retold and reinterpreted. Lyrically, they are of the very highest quality, and are illustrated with captivating visual imagery that is emotional and moving at the same time. When you think of stories, narrations and fairytales, the thought is never far from the back of your mind. The thought of him: Asp. Gothic icon and the embodiment of dark literary narrative skill, who has completely mastered this art. ASPs frontman has already been providing support to SPIELBANN for some years now. Of course, it was he who recognised their great potential and whose passion, skill, creativity and experience, but above all lifeblood, flowed into the pieces on their previous releases Wiederganger and In Gedenken. The results spoke for themselves: a truly magical and very fruitful symbiosis between SPIELBANN and grand master Asp came into being. So its no great surprise that Die Ballade von der "Blutigen Rose" also arose from this wonderful collaboration. As soon as SPIELBANN had come up with their fairytale concept, it was immediately clear to them that no less than Asp should contribute his incomparable abilities as poetic narrator. The gothic luminary hesitated at first, as he was already bogged down with countless projects of his own. But in the end, even he could not resist SPIELBANNs spine-chilling fairytale idea, and eventually contributed some captivating stories and compositions. He was also responsible for the ideas for the breathtaking artwork, which was meticulously illustrated and laid out in fine detail by none other than artist Pit Hammann.Something is already set in stone: escaping SPIELBANNs seductive sounds is revealed to be an impossible undertaking when stirring rock tracks (Hier kommt dein Tag, Tanz Koenigin tanz), thunderously explosive guitar riffs (Unschoenheit, Wo sie warten) and dark yet catchy compositions (Der volle Mond, Herz der Finsternis, Die Ballade von der "Blutigen Rose")meet the saddest, most fragile sweeping melodies (Meerjungfraubeine) in order to culminate in yearning cascades of sound (Heisse Asche, Dorothea). This mixture of punchy, driving moments and that profoundly moving melancholy and sadness promote Die Ballade von der "Blutigen Rose" to a virtuoso treasure for the mournful dark heart. Words that bring the soul to a state of turmoil before softly stroking it again. SPIELBANN master this type of contrasting poetry perfectly. The gothic rock ensemble tells stories of dark intensity, but which are full of fairytale-like beauty, thus ensuring that something quite unique comes into being. The sound art created by the five individuals is crowned by the alternating vocals of Seb Storm and the enchanting Nic Frost; two voices that couldnt possibly better harmonise with each other. Never were fairytales so seductive as on the Die Ballade von der "Blutigen Rose".Exquisite digipak edition in A5 formatWith three bonus tracksWith guest vocals, lyrics and additional compositions by AspLavishly designed 32-page booklet in special formatWith magnificent illustrations by Pit HammannIncludes all album lyricsExquisite art print on high quality art paperEncased in a stylish spot-varnished slipcaseHand-numbered certificateSigned by the entire band and co-author Asp

3 - SPIELBANN - WIEDERGANGER - (CD) 
TRISOL


With their concept album In Gedenken, which was enthusiastically received by critics and fans like, still reverberating, SPIELBANN prove that they can be counted among those restless spirits who are much too busy to just rest on their laurels. Just a few months later, the quintet from the German state of Saarland delivers a collection of 14 tracks that can, and indeed should, be seen as an important supplement to the collection of stories that made up In Gedenken. Here the listener is presented with a few more enchanting chapters to the anthology of the ghostly candles, and which represent a welcome continuation of that album. The reader is permitted to catch a last glimpse, as if long-lost manuscript pages from a long-forgotten book featuring one of his heroes from a novel had expanded in front of his very eyes. The two exclusive new tracks, Feuerteufel and PhantomSchmerz, quickly make it clear that the aim of this release is not to gather up odds and ends that never had a chance of making it onto the album. No, on this release, the tales about the keeper instead break new ground. The spirits did NOT want to fall silent. Another important part of this release is a complete (!) SPIELBANN concert, recorded on ASPs VERFALLEN tour last autumn. It was above all SPIELBANNs live qualities that drew them to the attention of gothic novel rock icon Asp as part of his unparalleled MazenatenTumult (PatronageTumult) newcomer campaign in 2013. On that basis he decided to bring the bandunder his experienced wing (or rather: butterfly wings?), and was convinced that this highly energetic band should not be kept away from a wider audience any longer! Just as he did withIn Gedenken, the star of the dark alternative scene also contributes to Wiederganger. To a great extent, this is due to the vocal performance, which will come to set new standardswithin the scene. In Seb Storm and his female counterpart Nic Frost, two voices have found each other that could not harmonise with each other better. Their voices radiate a quite unique energy; not just on stage but also on their studio albums. For the Wiederganger CD, the singers posed themselves a very special challenge: in order to push their stage personas to their very limits, Nic and Seb slipped into the role of their respective vocal counterpart. In doing so, they have succeeded in eliciting completely new facets from two absolutely outstanding pieces from the In Gedenken stories. With the question, "What if." on their lips, they each sought out the others most stirring solo piece and then, with greatdedication, produced their own reinterpretation of the story.An elaborately recorded new version of a classic SPIELBANN track from 2006 and a gripping piano version of the morbid masterpiece Haus des Vergessens round off the Wiedergangercollection. The artwork seamlessly complements the visual world of In Gedenken, because Wiederganger is an absolutely indispensable component of this great collection of emotional rollercoasters/ghost train rides. Timo Wurz (MARVEL, George Lucas, Disney, FESTA) also ennobles Wiederganger with hisvisual nightmare worlds.
