Brocken Moon
Das Märchen vom Schnee

NSP 067 :  Brocken Moon - Das Märchen vom Schnee CD/LP

Release date CD: May 2nd, 2008
Release date LP: January 2009


After 5 demos, three of them included on their debut album "Mondfinsternis" in 2005, Brocken Moon return with a fantastic album
that combines cold, atmospheric Black Metal and acoustic parts with a concept story which had best be described as self-written
folk tale and a brilliant artwork that is on the one hand dark and pure underground like the music but on the other hand a
hauntingly beautiful expression of the whole lyrical concept. It happens not often that the music, lyrics and artwork of an album
appear in such perfect unity. "Das Märchen vom Schnee" is a release that is highly recommended for fans of old Ulver and
In The Woods but also Lunar Aurora or Paysage d'Hiver, one and all bands who not just put effort into their music but make
sure all aspects of a release complement each other and together form an album that is not mere music but a real work of art.

The LP comes on white (handnumbered) and black vinyl, each limited to 260 copies, and has a special 8-page panorama cover.
