A band which was unknown for me until now. But thankfully, the record label sent something which I wouldn’t have found by myself.
And this is not a bad find. For lovers of the German Middle Ages, this rock band and of course the CD Eiskalt is recommended. And although the sound of the band is not that unique, it is not a band of 13 a dozen. Ragnaröek is a little different every now and a while.
The album opens strongly with the swinging straight bagpipes tune “Eiskalt”, so everyone knows what to expect from this band. And the album is also delicious further on, with strong catchy compositions, lyrics that can bring great roar. Though I would not try to imitate the low raw voice of Charon, because that will cost you your vocal cords.
When we come to “Lanze”, I think, “I must go and see this band for real sometime”, because you can barely sit still here. I still love to rock with the delightful medieval bagpipe tunes.
And although they are not listed as bonus tracks, I consider the last two tracks as bonusses. Because they are completely different from the first 10 tracks of the album. The last track “Electrowahn” sounds indeed quite “electric” can not tempt me. The second last song however is the song “Meer”, a lovely, quiet song, where a beautiful female voice in an impossible manner accent. This man can not be float long enough, according to me.
Simple conclusion: a great album.
