SALTATIO MORTIS "Erwachen"
  • Album: Erwachen
  • Year: 2004
  • Label: NAPALM
  • Artist: 
  • Germany

The seven Germans bring up a new album following accurately the line of the previous one, meaning a kind of IN EXTREMO but in a more dynamic silhouette! In other words, I think that the mixture of Epic Punk with Electro Rock and Medieval develops a sound of Dark Ages in an evolved stage. I am not sure it is accurate what I tell you, but those old traditional instruments combined with synth and other contemporaneous elements put forth a very weird music... not to mention that the lyrics are in German...! The energy discharged I believe it has a certain purpose in the Germans' sound and I have a feeling this is the reason why they are so popular on the German market! As far as the band's imagery is regarded, I notice that the guys are pretty attentive at details and that medieval appearance plus traditional instruments... simply compile a specific original aura. As far as music is concerned, I can't see many differences from the debut (perhaps a little bit more melodic!) and that is why I find no interest in discussing it any further.
