[Music] Alpine Darkness From Steinklang

New Sturmpercht albums out on the 8th of May


During their work on the sold-out 10 years jubilee 8LP boxset, the Austrian pioneers of Alpine Folk Music created this Dark-Psychedelic collection of scary tales around the holy mount Untersberg. Legends telling about people who went inside the hollow mountain, to visit Kaiser Karl and his folks living/sleeping there, waiting for the end of days to fight the final battle.

In most of these tales the visitors were only a few hours or days inside the mountain and his inside castles and monasteries, but when they returned to the outer world (IF they ever returned), many years had passed – this phenomenon is called “Bergentrückung”.Don’t expect the Sturmpercht-typical nice fairytales, beautiful Folk songs or joyful drinking hymns

GRIM - Psycho Sun LP (col) - zum Schließen ins Bild klicken

What Steinklang presents here is the next revolution after the brilliant revival of Japans Ritual Industrial legend Vasilisk . “Psycho Sun” is the first new album of Japans Noise-Pioneers GRIM since 27 years and their sound did not loose a single quantum of power in all those years!

This is PURE GRIM, like three decades before!

In the mid 80’s GRIM released three incredible milestones of Industrial Noise music, the LP “Folk Music“, as well as the 7” “Amaterasu” and the more folky 12″ “Message”. These three releases always were and still are the “Holy Grail” amongst  collectors-items of this genre.

Short history: GRIM as well as Vasilisk developed out of the legendary Industrial duo White Hospital  (aka Jun Konagaya and Tomo Kuwahara). Both artists have been inactive for the last 25 years and now both felt the sparkle to start again doing music, but not like most other “re-starters”, who are just a pale shade from their earlier times – GRIM and Vasilisk are doing the same fantastic music now, that they did in their early years!

Steinklang will soon re-release all early Vasilisk and White Hospital material + bonus on CD and LP.

6 side digipack CD / Steinklang SK68 – 12.90 euro
LP lim.100 copies – 18.90 euro
