saivo Absolutely crazy. An album with a truly unique approach. This is hardcore done in the most unconventional way. Splendid musicianship and amazing songwriting. Although i must say this one's a grower by most standards. Remarkable album, can't overstate that enough. Favorite track: Story of the Flood.

Can This Even Be Called Music? Es taut is a special album that rewards the introspective listener, amalgamating an excellent set of sounds from some of the best possible influences and fashioning them into something that’s never quite been done before.

Christian Gießen Very solid successor to Dress Rehearsal, both share the same genome, so no surprises; it's elaborate enough to feed from that distinct sound for a while, since no one sounds like Soldat Hans. Highly recommended, the release concert was nice as well. Favorite track: Schoner zerbirst, Part II.

As if endings could tell . We would all be well . Well and bitter . On our most joyful day . When that great rain would not come . We'd then descend upon ourselves . As if this fevered idea finds us elsewhere . When that rain would come . We worry no more why . We worry no more . All our dearly held blame will pass on by . When we awake here . When we awake from this careless dream of what will never belong (to us) . I toiled myself upon them stones . Where I would lie down . Where I would hide from this precious light that shines on the veiled . The most sincere thought that I ever had, was when I lied . The most sincere thought that I ever had, was when I lied about what will be when that great rain would not come . There was no refrain . There was just this one rain-sodden gown left there . With great care . And with flowers floating around you . Yelling up prayers for those we left in the fields to heal . Namaste . All that shines would light our wait . We'll outrun ourselves . As if we felt this widening tide recede . As if we (ever) felt this whole . When that great rain falls . Shine low . Shine . Shine on . Shine for us all . Shine on the veiled and gone . With our most hopeful glow . Shine . Shine low . Shine . Shine on . Shine on the veiled and gone .

Thousands will fall for all those unsung thoughts that would tear our selves apart . As we stepped through these waters they washed away our frequent dreams we had . All that could shine would light our burned down eyes in which we would drown our sighs . Thousands will fall for all those unsung thoughts that would tear our selves apart . No one else should know this . No one else should know this . All that could shine would light our burned down eyes in which we would drown our sighs . The skies will not hold on to those birds which brought their curse onto this day . As we stepped through these waters they washed away our frequent dreams we had . The skies will not hold on to those birds which brought their curse onto day . All that could shine would light our burned down eyes in which we would drown our sighs . Thousands will fall for all those undreamt thoughts that would tear our selves apart . No one else should know this . No one else should know this .

We fell shy of early hope again . When that bell rang twice . We would dance ourselves into this effigy they've drowned there . In that river near these nightmares you've portrayed . Those who relied on this rain to come would all be so awfully amazed . You were kept at this unknown plateau . Pictured by a thousand grinning eyes that lend their sight to you . (But) all these eyes . They avoid to spell out the given . To spell out . The given . End to End . End of shot . 0.8 gravity . You can walk on this . You can walk on this . You can walk on this . You can walk on this . à dieu . It's a hull breach . Quarter down . It's a hull breach . Quarter down . Quarter down . Like water it grows . This weighs a billion tonnes . This weighs a lot .
