Blutengel – Black Symphonies - An Orchestral Journey
An exquisite selection of Blutengel hits and classics, reinterpreted in symphonic form, makes for the most intense and grandiose sonic experience that the Berlin-based charts-stormers have ever delivered.
Available as a regular album CD and as a deluxe edition with a bonus live-DVD containing the best moments from the Gothic-Meets-Klassik-show.
The highly acclaimed concert Blutengel played with a symphony orchestra in front of a sold-out Neues Gewandhaus Leipzig at the first Gothic Meets Klassik Festival seemed like a revelation to all people involved.
Carefully rearranged and carried by the massive sound of a full orchestra, the Berlin-based group’s songs unfolded a completely new dimension of impact that left no one cold and had even long-time fans discover the music from a brand-new perspective.
Band-mastermind and singer Chris Pohl and second vocalist Ulrike Goldmann were so mesmerized by the experience that they decided it would be a waste to let this project just be a one-time event.
At the end of 2013, they had the songs rearranged and organized a tour featuring a carefully toned down version of the experience with a chamber ensemble.
As a logical next step, the band now presents the full symphonic experience as a gigantic studio production that reproduces the sound of a full orchestra in a crystal-clear audio experience on the new album “Black Symphonies.”
The 12 songs on the album span an exquisite selection of the finest Blutengel-classics and hits, complemented by the epic new song “Krieger.”
The album will also be released as a deluxe version featuring a bonus live DVD containing the best moments from the legendary show with the symphony orchestra of Zielona Gora at the Neues Gewandhaus Leipzig, which started it all.
“Black Symphonies” is the irresistible opportunity to discover the world’s most successful Gothic-Pop band from a completely new perspective.
From intense cinematic grandeur to the intimate, quiet moments …prepare to be captivated by this amazing sonic experience!
