Dornenreich have unveiled the second single ‘Der Freiheit Verlangen nach goldenen Ketten’ (‘Freedom’s Desire for Chains of Gold’) taken from their forthcoming album ‘Du wilde Liebe sei’ (‘You Wild Love Be’) due 11th June via Prophecy.
“The track ‘Der Freiheit Verlangen nach goldenen Ketten’ is in my mind probably one of the most dramatic pieces that has ever been created for Dornenreich”,
writes mastermind Eviga.
“This concerns both the emotional force of longing and despairing strength expressed in musical terms as well as the lyrical theme of the human nature being torn between its desire for freedom and self-assertion on one hand and its tendency towards wanting to belong and devotion on the other. It might well be the most fundamental conflict within the human soul, which is expressed through this song. As powerful and fluid our music is moving over extended passages in this track, here it remains unredeemed in the end – which is reflected in the essence of us human beings over and over.”
Heavy weighted and dynamic filled with folk sounds weaved through the distorted guitar and prominent percussion. The track haunts you with its menacing whispered vocals and violin, whilst racking up the suspense and eerie feeling with the relentless pounding of the percussion in the background. If this track is anything to go by, the album is going to an interesting ride for sure. A ride I want to be on.
